Peddy, big league U-turn in a year? Boras says, “Every team you meet asks.”
Will right-handed starter Eric Peddy, 30, who played for the NC Dinos of the KBO, return to the big leagues after a year away?
Pedi’s agent, Scott Boras, was interviewed during a visit to the Major League Baseball General Managers’ meetings at a resort in Scottsdale, Arizona, on Sept. 9.토토사이트
“He’s the hottest free agent right now,” he said when asked about one of his clients.
“Every team I talk to is talking about him. He’s a Sai Young Award-winning pitcher in Korea,” he said, indicating that Pedi’s value is on the rise.
Pedi, who signed with NC for a $200,000 signing bonus and $800,000 annual salary, was the most dominant starting pitcher in the KBO in 2023.
In 30 games and 180 1/3 innings, he went 20-6 with a 2.00 ERA and won the Choi Dong-won Award.
He wasn’t a bad pitcher in the major leagues either. In six seasons with the Washington Nationals, he went 21-33 with a 5.41 ERA in 102 games.
In 2021 and 2022, he was a full-time starter with over 127 innings pitched.
While he may not be considered a “top-tier starter,” he certainly has a more colorful resume than Merrill Kelly and Chris Flexen, who both signed with major league teams from the KBO.
And he has shown that he is an upgraded version of himself in the KBO. It’s no wonder he’s attracting so much interest from major league teams in the hotly contested free agent market.
Earlier, John Heyman, a reporter specializing in major league baseball for the New York Post, also mentioned Pedi’s KBO performance and said that he was attracting the attention of major league teams.
NC would love to re-sign him, but the game is too big to hold onto.
