Foreign pitchers Wes Benjamin (30) and Bo Schulser (29) of kt Wiz (CEO Shin Hyeon-ok) successfully completed their first bullpen pitching in the spring camp.
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 in the first turn of training.
In his second season at KT Wiz, Benjamin threw 25 pitches across all pitches, and his highest velocity was 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. He thought about the parts he lacked last year and threw with an emphasis on the mechanism that uses the body to put power on the ball.” 메이저놀이터
New foreign pitcher Bo Schulser also pitched 34 pitches across all pitches, including his main weapon, the fastball and changeup, and recorded a fastball speed of 144 km. Schulser evaluated, “I paid attention to the adaptation of the KBO official ball and the control 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 pitch, 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 Jo Yi-hyeon, successfully completed their first bullpen pitching.
