Joint opinion of Yeomgalyang and Legend Catcher. “The changeup works for right-handed hitters as well.”
“Even if you throw it to a right-handed hitter, the pitch value seems to be high enough.”
LG Twins foreign pitcher Adam Plutko completed his first bullpen pitching effortlessly. On the 6th (hereafter Korean time), Plutko, who had his first breath with new catcher Park Dong-won at the San Francisco Giants Baseball Complex in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA, Plutko threw a total of 36 balls, including a fastball, slider, changeup, and cutter. , mixed curves, etc.
Plutko had a tectonic confluence. His first training was only held on the 4th, the 3rd day of training, as the flight was canceled due to heavy snow. However, he built up his body and quickly entered the bullpen. He threw all the pitches he threw and checked his condition.
Park Dong-won dropped the curve backwards because it was the first time he received Plutko’s ball, but he got used to Plutko’s ball by shouting “nice ball”. 메이저놀이터
After the bullpen pitching, manager Yeom Gyeong-yeop and battery coach Park Gyeong-wan talked about pitches with Plutko and Park Dong-won. In particular, the changeup was a hot topic. When Coach Park said Plutko had only thrown his changeup to left-handed hitters last year, he said, “I think it would be nice to throw it to right-handed hitters.” In response, coach Yeom also advised, “I think it will work for right-handed hitters even with the now falling changeup,” and advised, “You should throw the changeup and curve low.”
Plutko recorded 15 wins and an average ERA of 2.39 in the regular season last year, tied for second place in most wins and ranked third in average ERA, leading the LG starters with a one-two punch along with Casey Kelly (16 wins).
Due to back pain at the end of the season, he faced only the first batter in two games and was replaced, and in 1⅔ innings in the second game of the playoffs against Kiwoom, he collapsed with 8 hits and 6 runs (4 earned) and became a losing pitcher.
There was an injury at the end, so it is important to finish without injury this season. His first start was very good.
