NC Dinos foreign pitcher Eric Peddie has been sidelined with an injury, putting a cloud over the team’s race for the top spot.
NC removed ace Peddie from the first-team roster on Thursday ahead of the seventh game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League against the Doosan Bears at NC Park in Changwon, Gyeongnam.
“Pedi complained of discomfort in his right forearm before pitching in the bullpen today and needed medical attention,” explained manager Kang Myung-hyun, adding, “We decided to remove him from the first team because we think it’s difficult for him to pitch in the future.” “The timing of (Pedi’s) return is unpredictable,” Kang said, adding, “We’ll have to wait and see.”먹튀검증
In his first year in the KBO, Pedi led the NC to victory with a 10-1 record and a 1.74 ERA in 12 games. He was first in ERA, wins, strikeouts (89), and WHIP (1.05). There was nothing wrong with his body when he earned his 10th win with six innings and two runs against SSG in Changwon on May 9, but he suffered an unexpected injury a day before his scheduled start against Doosan on May 15.
“I was in a situation where I needed a break anyway, but it was expunged like this,” Kang said of the pedicle injury, adding, “I hope it’s not a big injury and that the gap won’t be long.” “I hope it’s not a big injury and it won’t be a long absence,” he added, referring to the domestic players.
Shin Min-hyuk, who was expunged from the first team on the 24th of last month, is the likely replacement for Pedi against Changwon Doosan on the 15th. Shin is expected to register for the first team before the game on the 15th.
