In this camp, which consists of three days of training and one day of rest, the two foreign pitchers who joined the camp after steadily building their bodies during the off-season volunteered to pitch in the bullpen during the first turn of training. 안전놀이터
Benjamin, who is in his second season at KT, threw 25 pitches across all pitches, and recorded a maximum velocity of 143 km. Benjamin, who finished pitching the bullpen, said, “Today was the first time I threw lightly, and I plan to gradually increase the intensity. I thought about the parts that were lacking in last year’s season and threw with an emphasis on the mechanism that uses the body to put power on the ball.”
New foreign pitcher Bo Schulser also pitched 34 pitches across all pitches, including his main weapon, the fastball and changeup, and recorded the highest fastball speed of 144 km. Schulzer said, “I paid attention to the adaptation of the KBO official ball and the control power of pitching in the strike zone, and it was a satisfactory pitch overall.”
Pitching coach Kim Tae-han, who watched the pitching of the two players, said, “It was their first pitching, but I felt that they were preparing well as planned.” I hope,” he said.
In addition, six domestic pitchers, including Koh Young-pyo, Sohn Joon-jun, Lee Chae-ho, Park Se-jin, Kim Min, and Cho Yi-hyeon, successfully completed their first bullpen pitching.
