KT Wiz’s ace William Cuevas (33), who is likely to start the opening game of the professional baseball season,
improved his physical condition by throwing a fastball at 140 km/h in his first bullpen pitch after joining spring camp. 카지노
On the 16th, Cuevas threw a total of 13 fastballs and breaking balls at Hyundai Motor Company Dream Ball Park in Gijang-gun, Busan.
The highest speed of the fastball was 141.6 km/h.
William Cuevas said, “In the U.S., I focused on improving my lower body flexibility,” and added,
“I haven’t fully adapted to the jet lag yet, but I think I threw the ball satisfactorily.”
Until recently, he had been doing personal training in the United States,
but after returning to the country on the 14th, he resumed his training after adjusting to the time difference.
Cuevas is highly likely to start in the opening game of the 2024 season against the Samsung Lions to be held at Suwon KT Wiz Park on the 23rd of next month.
In an interview with Yonhap News on the 15th, coach Lee Kang-cheol indirectly hinted at Cuevas’
appearance when asked about the starting pitcher for the opening game, saying, “(The opponent) is Samsung.”
Cuevas has many good memories against Samsung,
including starting the game against Samsung in the 2021 regular season first place game after two days of rest and leading the team to the win with 7 scoreless innings.
He achieved good results last season with one win and an ERA of 2.84 in two games against Samsung.
