NC foreign ace Eric Peddy is speeding up to return to the first team. The plan is to digest the long toss and bullpen pitching and catch the point of return.
NC coach Kang In-kwon met with reporters ahead of the Changwon LG match on the 20th and said, “Peddy played a 30m long toss today. He said, “It feels like 70%.” It is the position that the return to the first team will be decided after looking at the condition after pitching in the bullpen.
Koo Chang-mo, who is receiving treatment in Japan, will return to Korea on the 23rd. He schedules his return after reexamination on the 27th. No more concrete plans yet. Kim Jin-ho, a bullpen resource, will also be reviewed on the 27th.
NC had a rough week without an ace. Excluding one Taylor Widener, who gave up 4 runs in 6 innings (3 earned runs) against KIA in Gwangju on the 17th, all the starters who pitched last week came off the mound without completing the 5th inning. As the early steel plate continued, the bullpen load naturally increased. He played 31 innings with the bullpen in 6 games. Ryu Jin-wook and Cho Min-seok pitched for 4 days each, and 6 players, including finisher Lee Yong-chan, pitched for 3 days each. Everyone in the bullpen went to work almost every day. It is a time when a starting pitcher who can stably digest the innings is desperately needed.토토사이트
Coach Kang said, “As the starters came down early, the bullpen was consumed a lot,” and “the bullpen continues to be overloaded, and I think the starters need to find more stability.” As the bullpen consumption was high, it means that the starters should throw at least 5 innings this week.
