After nine games in the postseason, including Game 5 of the playoffs, the NC Dinos have announced their final training schedule. The roster has not been finalized, but the team will be training for 11 days, from the 15th to the 25th.
According to NC officials, the N-team (first team level) will begin its final training on the 15th. The participating players are still undecided. After five days of training, the team will spend 11 days with one day of rest. Usually, in addition to the first team mainstays, the “1.5 team” or prospects participate in the final training. The C team (Future Team), which had a non-playoff schedule, will wrap up training at Masan Baseball Stadium on the 29th.
The foreign players will board their flights to the U.S. starting on the 7th. Tanner Tully will be the first to depart at 7:25 p.m. on the 7th. He will be followed by Eric Peddy at 2:40 p.m. on the 8th and Jason Martin at 2:40 p.m. on the 9th.
Tanner joins the team as a replacement for Taylor Widener, going 5-2 with a 2.92 ERA in 11 games. He joined NC during the minor league season and was immediately thrust into the starting rotation with little time to adjust or get healthy. His pitching was calculated, with eight quality starts in 11 games. This earned him the start in the wild-card deciding game when Pedi was unavailable.
But the postseason was a nightmare. In Game 1 of the wild-card decider against the Doosan Bears on March 19, he gave up five runs on seven hits, including a home run, and three walks in just four innings. After a shaky start in which he gave up one run each in the first through third innings, he was pulled in the fifth inning with the bases loaded without recording an out. In the third game of the semifinals against SSG Landers on the 25th, he gave up five runs on five hits in two innings.
Up until this point, he was able to avoid a loss with the help of his bats, but unexpectedly, he took the loss in the third game of the playoffs against the KT Wiz after pitching six innings and two runs. NC dropped the next three games of the playoffs and failed to advance to the Korean Series. 무지개토토 도메인
Pedi pitched 180⅓ innings in 30 regular-season games, posting a 20-6 record with 209 strikeouts and a 2.00 ERA. His postseason plans were disrupted when he was hit in the right arm in the bottom of the sixth inning against the KIA Tigers on May 16, his last start of the regular season. Peddie tried to get back on track, but there were still concerns about his physical condition, and NC couldn’t force him to pitch.
Even if he hadn’t been injured, he wouldn’t have pitched in the wild-card game on the 19th. He missed all three semi-playoff games where he was expected to return. He returned for Game 1 of the playoffs against KT on Oct. 30 and pitched six innings of one-run ball with 12 strikeouts, but it was his last start of the season. Already dealing with shoulder fatigue from the regular season, Peddy was unable to start Game 5 of the playoffs and his relief appearance was canceled.
Peddie had been followed by major league scouts throughout the regular season. American media outlets such as MLB.com have also taken notice of him. At the same time, former SK Wyverns pitcher Merrill Kelly was leading the Arizona Diamondbacks to the World Series.
