Moon Dong-ju without “Winning Shot” Will he see the effect of studying abroad according to “Peddy Senior”

Moon Dong-ju (20), who won last year’s rookie award, is not in Korea right now. He left for Arizona on April 21 without completing the annual salary negotiation.헤라카지노

He visited the U.S. in the middle of winter, not just in the spring camp, because of his personal training. He went to the Pitching Lab (pitcher training center) push performance. It is also a place that Major League Baseball pitchers such as Walker Buehler and Logan Webb visit, but there is another person who motivated Moon. He was last year’s MVP Eric Peddy of the Chicago White Sox.

In an interview with the Chicago Sun-Times on Monday (Korea time), Pedi said, “We have been able to evolve from push performance to push performance.” Pedi, who threw by adding a curveball centered on sinkers before coming to Korea, honed breaking balls and sweeper that moved from side to side. He also revised the grip on changeups.

As a result, he had 20 wins, 6 losses and 2.00 209 strikeouts in Korea last season, winning three titles (multiple wins, ERA, strikeouts), Golden Glove, and MVP. After his splendid revival, he returned to the U.S. after signing a two-year, 15 million-dollar contract.

Moon has already shown interest in Fedi’s pitching since last year. After an away game in Changwon in August last year, he arranged a meeting to meet Fedi and asked for advice on how to use sweeper. “If Moon shows off what I told you on the ground, the league will grow further,” Fedi said. Even after receiving the award, he said, “I hope you can hold the MVP trophy later,” to Moon.

Moon also needs to evolve as much as Pedi a year ago. He pitched well with eight wins, eight losses and an ERA of 3.72 last year, but had only 7.21 strikeouts per nine innings. He was the first Korean fastball pitcher to throw more than 160 kilometers per hour, but lacked breaking ball power. He relied heavily on fastballs (54.4 percent) compared to curves (25 percent) and sliders (16.3 percent). Curves (0.226 hits) were not bad, but sliders (0.258) were not all that overwhelming.

During the season, Hanwha manager Choi Won-ho said, “As the average speed is 153 to 154 kilometers/h, batters feel difficult even if they throw it only near the strike zone. That’s why even if the breaking ball is a little weak, it works,” but added, “Dongju’s breaking ball is not very good. He should have the main weapon to deal with left-handed batters.”

Moon will continue his individual training in the U.S. through the end of this month. While it is difficult to become a pedicure just by training for one month, it seems clear that he is on the verge of becoming an ace.
