Cuevas showed his willingness to break the ‘LG jinx’

KT Wiz foreign pitcher Cuevas showed his willingness to try again to break the ‘LG jinx’.

KT manager Lee Kang-cheol held a mini-meeting with foreign pitcher Cuevas at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on Sept. 9. After Cuevas finished his pregame workout, he went into the locker room, sat down in the dugout, and spoke with Lee. Lee gave Cuevas some advice on his pitch mix, which is primarily fastballs, but also includes a changeup.

“Yesterday, the ball was good,” Lee said of Cuevas. He had good velocity, he was throwing over 150 mph, which was fine, but the ball was coming down the middle,” Lee said. Cuevas said, “I was looking at the left and right borderline and throwing it, but it kept going right down the middle.”

The coach said, 바카라사이트 “That’s why you can’t throw to the LG. Don’t throw to the LG in the future,” Lee jokingly said. Cuevas said, “I’ll try to throw one more time against LG.”

Cuevas started against LG on Aug. 8 and took the loss, allowing seven runs on eight hits, one home run, three walks and three strikeouts in five innings.

In nine starts against LG in 2019,

Cuevas has yet to earn a win in a KT uniform. In nine games against LG, he is winless with a 9.00 ERA. That’s a far cry from his career ERA of 3.58. Last year, Lee went 12-0 with an ERA of 3.58, but struggled against LG with an ERA of 11.45 in three games.

Lee made an adjustment in the three-game series against LG at the end of June by slotting Benjamin, who had just returned from three weeks on the disabled list, into the starting rotation in front of Cuevas so that Cuevas wouldn’t have to pitch. As of now, Cuevas is not scheduled to pitch in the three-game series against LG in late June.

Lee compared Benjamin and Cuevas, saying, “Cuevas is really good against other teams, but against LG Electronics, the ball gets away from him. Benjamin, on the other hand, gets beat up against other teams, but when he faces LG, his pitches go to the left and right corners. Every pitcher has a weird team,” he said.

Benjamin was a natural against LG last year, 메이저 토토사이트 going 4-0 with a 0.84 ERA in five starts. This season, Benjamin has also pitched well against LG, going six innings and one run in one start.
