NC Dinos ace Eric Peddie (30-USA) has been sidelined with an injury.
NC removed Peddie from the roster ahead of Thursday’s game against the Doosan Bears at NC Park in Changwon. According to the club, Peddy felt discomfort in his right forearm before pitching out of the bullpen on the day and will be scheduled for rehabilitation after a medical examination.
Selected by the Nationals with the 18th overall pick in the first round of the 2014 First-Year Player Draft, Peddy made his big league debut in 2017 and went 21-33 with a 5.41 ERA in 102 career major league games (88 starts). He was a five-starter when the Nats won the World Series in 2019 and was a regular in the starting rotation until last year.메이저놀이터
Peddy, who was pursued by several teams last winter, signed with the Nats for a maximum total of $1 million, which is the first year’s non-tender. Pedi has a four-seam fastball that tops out at 153 mph and a variety of pitches with good movement, including a two-seam, cut fastball, changeup, and sweeper. He led NC in ERA (1.74) and wins (10-1) and was second in strikeouts (89).
In his last eight appearances, he earned a win in each start. His 10 wins in 12 games tied the KBO record for fewest games with 10 wins.
Pedi’s departure is expected to be short-lived. However, NC has another hole in its starting rotation. Left-hander Koo Chang-mo was diagnosed with a three-week injury to his forearm during the LG Electronics League on April 2. Taylor Widener was a late addition to the rotation, and Lee Jae-hak and Choi Sung-young have been pitching well of late, but the loss of the most obvious one-two punch is a concern. Shin Min-hyuk, who was dropped to the second team, will join the first team for now.
