“It’s better than the first… “It’s hard to judge” When will the 155km fireballer with back pain come back?

“I still have to wait and see how he recovers.”

The NC Dinos, led by coach Kang In-kwon, announced a pleasant start by winning 8-0 in the opening match against the Samsung Lions of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Daegu Samsung Lions Park on the 1st.

Eric Peddy, who made his debut in the KBO League on this day, pitched 5 scoreless innings, including 6 strikeouts, and decorated his debut with a victory. Catcher Park Se-hyuk, who worked with coach Kang In-kwon, gave NC a victory with an admirably neat pitch. 메이저사이트

Many fans are curious about the current situation of Taylor Widener, who was expected to pack a one-two punch with Pedi. Widener was scheduled to take the mound in the final match against KT Wiz on March 28, but skipped the turn due to back pain. The reason is that I strained my back while running the day before.

At the time NC issued a press release, Widener said, “He is a right-handed overhand pitcher with physical conditions of 183 cm tall and 92 kg in weight. He mainly uses a fastball with an average of 150 km (up to 155 km), a slider, and a changeup, and throws a mix of curves.” He has yet to see a fire bowler throwing 155 km.

Director Kang In-kwon, whom we met on the 1st, said, “It has improved a lot since the beginning, but we have to see the progress. He said, “If a decision has been made, I will be able to tell you something, but it is still difficult to judge.”

Widener made his major league debut in 2020. He appeared in 49 major league games (13 starts), posting a 4.26 earned run average with 2 wins, 3 losses and 4 holds in 107.2 innings. Last season, he appeared in 14 games and posted an ERA of 3.63 with 1 loss and 1 hold in 17.1 innings. During the demonstration game, he played two games and recorded an average ERA of 3.86 with one loss.

Pedi’s start is good. When will Widener return?

NC will have the second game of the opening series with Samsung on the 2nd. The selection is Gu Chang-mo.
