“KBO MVP → Big League gold return” Peddy, will take the mound against his old team… NC will hold a practice game against the Chicago White Sox

Eric Peddy (31, Chicago White Sox), who conquered the KBO League stage and returned to the U.S. stage, will encounter his former team NC Dinos.

NC said on the 16th that it will hold a practice match between the Chicago White Sox of the U.S. Major League Baseball and the Asian Breeze of the Japanese independent league. NC said it planned three of its own practice games and two of its own practice games against the LG Twins before the departure of CAMP 2, but added that it will hold additional practice games to boost its sense of practice ahead of the exhibition games.

Although it is only a practice game held in spring camp, attention is focused on meeting with the White Sox because of the existence of “Ace” Peddy. Peddy, who challenged the KBO League stage last year, stood out as the best ace in the league with 20 wins and six losses, 2.00 ERA and 209 strikeouts in 30 games and 180 ⅓ innings.

Peddy, who was the first foreign pitcher and achieved 20 wins and 200 strikeouts at the same time in 37 years since Sun Dong-yeol (39 games, 24 wins and 6 losses, an ERA of 0.99 and 214 strikeouts) in 1986, swept five trophies at the KBO Awards in November last year, winning multiple wins, an ERA, a triple crown with the most strikeouts, a pitcher’s defense award, and an MVP.

Peddy, who bombed the KBO League, received a lot of attention from MLB clubs and eventually succeeded in signing a two-year, $15 million (about 20 billion won) contract with the White Sox. Peddy, who played the season as a full-time big league starter during the Washington Nationals in 2022, chose a new challenge at the risk of more than halving his salary from $2.15 million (about 2.9 billion won) to $1 million (about 1.3 billion won), and eventually won a jackpot contract, paying off successfully. 노래방알바

Meanwhile, NC will play Peddy’s White Sox in a practice match at Camelback Ranch on March 2. Based on the agreement of the two teams, the game will last seven innings. The practice match against Asian Breeze will take place at Enex Field on March 1.

NC manager Kang In-kwon said, “As the season begins faster, the warm-up match during CAMP 2 has become more important. I would like to thank the Chicago White Sox and the Asian Breeze club for being partners in the practice game. I will have a good experience through the warm-up match.”
