A new foreign pitcher who meets the ‘great pitcher’… Will it shine in a situation where normal starting rotation is impossible?

KT Wiz’s foreign pitcher Bo Shul-seo will make his KBO debut.

KT will face off against the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League KIA Tigers at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on the 6th.

The first confrontation on the 4th was stopped by rain before the defense in the bottom of the 4th inning, where KIA led 3-1, and after waiting for 40 minutes, it was declared a no game. The match on the 5th was canceled due to rain from the morning. Schulser and Yang Hyeon-jong, who were scheduled to start on the 5th, will start the game on the 6th.토토사이트

Schulser is starting his first KBO regular season game. He took over from Audrey Sameer Despaigne. In the demonstration game, two matches were played. On March 16, against Hanwha Eagles in Daejeon, he was sluggish with 4 runs in 3 innings (4 earned runs) and 5 hits (1 home run), but on the 24th against Suwon LG Twins, he gave up 1 run in 4 innings (1 earned run) and 3 hits.

Director Lee Kang-cheol, who met with reporters ahead of the KIA game on the 4th, said, “I think Sangbaek would be better than Schulser on the first Tuesday and Sunday,” and “Shulser was a little nervous. “he said.

Schulser’s biggest worry is that he has never pitched many innings in a season. After the exhibition game against LG, Schulser said, “The program with the trainer is very helpful. I have never thrown more than 140 to 150 innings in a season as a player. I have to throw more than that this season.” “I think physical fitness is very important. But the trainer is taking good care of it. I will be physically prepared.”

This season, KT’s other foreign pitcher, Wes Benjamin, is in good shape. In the opening game against Suwon LG on the 1st, he gave up 1 run (no runs), 2 hits and 4 strikeouts in 6 innings. If Schulser has Benjamin behind him, he can form a powerful out-and-out one-two punch.

KT has a lot of worries about the current starting lineup. Joon Sohn is unable to play for two weeks due to a forearm injury. Eom Sang-baek, who started on the 4th, also felt uncomfortable with his elbow and was pulled early. Fortunately, there doesn’t seem to be any major problems. However, Joon Sohn is missing. In a situation where normal starting rotation operation is impossible, it seems that KT will be able to spend April without worrying too much if Schulser does his part.
