Outfielder DJ Peters (28), who played for the professional baseball Lotte Giants in 2022, prepares to return to active duty with an unwavering mind.

Dave Coggin, who played in the U.S. Major League Baseball (MLB) in the early 2000s and now runs a personal coaching business for players, released a video of Peters’ pitching through social networking service (SNS) X (formerly Twitter) on the 18th (local time). 카지노사이트랭크

Coggin wrote, “Peters displays a fastball with an average velocity in the mid-90s and a ‘dirty’ slider with a large up-and-down drop. Only one batter succeeded in making at least a foul, and all batters struck out.”

Peters, who boasts a commanding physique of 196 cm in height, debuted in the big league as a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2021, then went on to the Texas Rangers and wore a Lotte uniform in 2022.

Peters had great expectations, but Lotte revealed problems with his batting accuracy and was notified of his release in July of that year, leaving a batting average of 0.228, 13 home runs, and 48 RBIs in 85 games.

Even after being released because his wife was pregnant at the time, he stayed in Busan for a while and had a son, Reese. He returned to the United States and signed a minor contract with the Washington Nationals.

Last year, he signed a minor contract with the Detroit Tigers again, but failed to return to the big leagues and was eventually released at the end of the year.

In Detroit, he attempted to become a pitcher.

He went down to the Rookie League and took on the challenge, but in 17 games, 21⅔ innings, 1 win, 24 strikeouts, 27 walks, and an ERA of 6.23.

Peters, who had been making a living by teaching baseball online, recently decided to try his hand at pitching again.

Despite his good size and slugging ability, he was not able to see the light of day due to problems with batting accuracy and pitching, but he showed his will to prepare as a pitcher step by step and get back on the pitch.

Peters pledged to return, saying on his website, “I started training in the offseason for the new season.” 고스톱
