Aldred was signed as a “short-term foreign pitcher”

Cam Aldred, 28, was signed by the Kia Tigers as a “short-term foreign pitcher. Kia manager Lee Bum-ho is withholding judgment for now.

Aldred made a start against the Doosan Bears at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on April 8, giving up six runs on three hits, three walks, and four strikeouts in three innings.

He got off to a good start. He was hit by a pitch with two outs in the first inning, but struck out Jae-Hwan Kim to end the inning. In the second, he got out of the inning with a strikeout.

The first run came in the bottom of the third. After a walk, a hit, and a double, a run scored. In the fourth, he gave up a leadoff single to Yang Seok-hwan and back-to-back walks to Kim Ki-yeon and Kim Jae-ho before giving up an RBI single to Cho Yoo-chan. Aldred, who totaled 78 pitches, handed the mound over to Lim Ki-young. After Lim gave up a sacrifice fly to Ramos, 안전놀이터 추천 Yang gave up an RBI single to extend Aldred’s lead to six runs.

His fastball topped out at 148 mph and he mixed in a curveball, sinker, and changeup.

For now, Lee focused on the positives rather than the negatives.

“I made one pitch. Lee purposely put it against the strongest team. I think I have good pitches, but I think I was nervous because I was pitching in Jamsil. I also had a set pitch count. In many ways, I think it’s right to wait and see,” he said. ”If you’re good in your first start, you might not be good later. If I don’t pitch well in the first inning, and I have time to think about the hitters in Korean baseball, I will pitch better next time. My pitches weren’t bad. Stylistically, if he has time to adjust to Korean baseball, I think he can do his job.”

It wasn’t all bad. He showed a clear competitiveness against lefties. “If you look at lefties, there are a lot of pitches they can’t hit with power,” Lee said. I thought lefties like Kim Jae-hwan were hitting with the idea of hitting the ball rather than hitting it hard. I think they have a strength against lefties.”

On the other hand, against right-handed batters, he needed to improve a bit more. “I think I need to think about what kind of pitches I should throw to righties. But there are a lot of left-handed hitters in Korea, so if we plan well, we can make good pitches,” he said. ”On the positive side, I wouldn’t have given us so many runs if we hadn’t given the bottom of the order a walk. In 3B2S, we gave the lower hitters walks, 토토사이트 순위 which led to the top of the order. I think if we could have gotten that out of the way, we could have had a clean four innings. If we can get that out of the way, the next pitch will be better.”
