Will Ryu Hyun-jin’s successor regain his reputation? 27-year-old struggles with glass body, 7G ERA 2.25 ‘Oh, it’s out again’
Will Ryu Hyun-jin’s successor regain his reputation?
Nate Pearson (27, Toronto Blue Jays) started in two consecutive games for the first time this season. Pearson took the mound as the second pitcher in the 2023 Major League Baseball home game against the New York Yankees held at the Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on the 16th (Korean time), and gave up 1 run with 1 strikeout and 2 walks in 1⅓ innings.
Pearson joined in the first round in 2017 and is a super-special prospect who joined with great expectations. From his debut, he covered 160 km and was considered the ace of the next generation. There was also talk that he would serve as a pillar for Pearson’s growth as he recruited Ryu Hyun-jin through the 2019-2020 free agent market.
However, he was hampered by an injury issue as well as a fastball pitcher’s search for pitches. Still, the number of games he has played in the major leagues since his debut is 24. He played a total of 33 innings in 2020 and 2021, and then took a full 2022 break.
And he returned to the bullpen this year. There are no more seats in the starting lineup. Pearson is playing in the pursuit team. A good move in the given situation. He didn’t even say he was sick, and on this day, he even had a long fight for the first time this season. He is still not used as a close lead, but no one knows how his use will change in the future.
Coincidentally, the starting pitcher that day was Alec Manoa, who joined the team a year later than Pearson. The difference between the two of them is already the difference between heaven and earth. Manoa finished third in American League Cy Young voting last year. However, this season has been sluggish. On this day, he was also not good with 6 hits (2 home runs), 3 strikeouts, 7 walks and 5 runs in 4 innings.
Pearson was called as Pearson started the fifth inning and allowed a walk. He induced a fly ball to left field with three sliders from Anthony Wolf. In the crisis of 1st, 2nd and 3rd base, Oswal also showed his true colors to Cabrera. He threw 96-98 mph fastballs one after another and induced a floating ball in right field. The runner on third base failed to tag up. Subsequently, Kyle Higashioka overcame the crisis by handling a grounder on third base with a slider on the first pitch.메이저놀이터
In the 6th inning, he struck out lead hitter Aaron Hicks with a 96-mile four-seam swing. He didn’t like it when he walked Jake Bauer. Giving away the stolen second base, I had no choice but to send Aaron Judge to the automatic ball. And he handed over the mound to Tim Mayja. Pearson was given an earned run as Maya hit an RBI double in the middle of the month by Anthony Rizzo. 1 win in 7 games of the season, 2.25 ERA.
Still, I pitched well enough. He only topped 96.9 miles (156 km), but showed a winning performance without running away. Because it was a continuous battle, the speed might have been a little less. Toronto’s starting lineup this season has not been good overall. If you throw more steadily, you can enter the winning group, and it is not impossible to return to the starting lineup. Pearson quietly began flapping his resurrection wings.
