Its Taiwanese league Left-Hander from ML who Throws a Sweeper

Eric Stout (Chongshin Brothers), a foreign pitcher from the Taiwanese professional baseball team who uses a sweeper as his main weapon 카지노사이트랭크

was included in the list of recruits from domestic clubs.

According to a report from the American sports media ‘Major League Trade Rumors’ on the 24th (Korean time)

Stout is receiving a lot of attention from not only domestic clubs, but also American and Japanese clubs.

Stout, who made his big league debut with the Kansas City Royals in 2018, played for the Chicago Cubs and Pittsburgh Pirates. 

He has a 7.30 in 23 career games with no wins or losses.

Having played in Triple A under the Chicago Cubs and Seattle Mariners this season

he joined the Taiwanese professional baseball team Chungshin Brothers in July and appeared in 12 games (68⅔ innings)

leaving with 6 wins, 5 losses, and an average ERA of 3.28.

The media predicted, “Stout is expected to get another opportunity by playing in Taiwan’s professional baseball.

Even if he fails to advance to the major leagues, he will advance to Japan or Korea

which have a higher level than Taiwan.”

He added, “It will be an opportunity to increase the possibility of returning to the major leagues by playing in Japan or Korea.”

Stout’s main weapon is known as the sweeper. 

In the finals of the World Baseball Classic (WBC) last March

the ball thrown by Japanese pitcher Shohei Ohtani in the 9th inning when he struck out American batter Mike Trout on a missed swing and confirmed the win was a sweeper.

It is a type of deformed slider that has a slightly slower velocity than a normal slider

but has a large horizontal bending angle.

For right-handed batters, it curves significantly outward.

The pitcher who uses this pitch, which is popular in the major leagues

best in this year’s KBO League is Eric Peddy, who played as the ace of the NC Dinos.

He learned from Shelby Miller (LA Dodgers) and refined it during the off-season.

This sweeper, which is used as a deciding ball along with a two-seam fastball with an average speed of 148.6 km, is at the level of a magic ball. Not only players from the same team but also other teams are showing great interest in Peddie’s sweeper.

Peddie, who set foot on Korean soil for the first time this season, recorded 20 wins, 6 losses, an ERA of 2.00, and 209 strikeouts

ranking first in three categories including most wins, ERA, and most strikeouts. 

20 wins + 200 strikeouts’ is a record achieved 37 years after Sun Dong-ryeol of the Haitai Tigers in 1986.

In addition, he had the honor of becoming the fourth pitcher in KBO League history to achieve the Triple Crown

following Sun Dong-ryeol, Hanwha Ryu Hyun-jin, and KIA Yoon Seok-min.
