“There will be few walks and self-destruction” Pitching expert highly praised, Doosan foreign farming signs of a jackpot
Even in the eyes of instructor Hisanori Takahashi (48), Doosan’s new foreign pitcher Dylan Pyle (27) looked good. It was the first time he saw pitching, so he focused on his strengths, but he expected a good performance.
Left-hander Takahashi, who won 93 victories in major leagues such as the Yomiuri Giants and New York Mets of the Japanese professional baseball league, visited Doosan Spring Camp to give advice to pitchers for two weeks as an instructor.
Takahashi Instructor’s invitation to the메이저사이트 spring camp was accomplished through a past relationship with director Lee Seung-yeop. Director Seung-Yeop Lee and Instructor Takahashi worked together in Yomiuri for four years from 2006. Head coach Lee Seung-yeop said, “I expect Takahashi instructor, who has experience in both starting and bullpen roles in the US and Japan, to be of great help to the development of young lefties.”
Instructor Takahashi officially joined the team training on the 9th. Instructor Takahashi began to understand the instructor’s duties by watching the pitchers’ catch balls and Dylan’s bullpen pitching. Afterwards, we moved on to live batting training and closely observed the pitching of Kwak Bin, Kim Dong-ju, Jang Won-joon, Park Chi-guk, Lee Hyeong-beom, Jeong Cheol-won, and Park Shin-ji from behind the batting cage.
Instructor Takahashi, whom I met after spending the first day after joining spring camp, said, “First of all, I am focusing on figuring out how to use my body and what the pitcher’s strengths are. I wonder if there will be pitchers throwing the ball, so I don’t know if I’m tired,” he laughed.
In particular, foreign pitcher Dylan’s pitching was given a passing grade. I even had a brief conversation with Dylan.
Dylan signed a contract with Doosan last November for a total of $650,000. He uses breaking balls such as curveballs, sliders, and changeups under a fastball of up to 152 km. He will be the second starter behind Raul Alcantara.
Dylan’s strength is his precise control. During his minor league career, he struck out 427 while walking just 113 in 495 innings. Head coach Lee Seung-yeop and pitching coach Jeong Jae-hoon are also giving thumbs up when it comes to pitching.
How did you see Instructor Takahashi, the ‘one of a kind instructor’? thoughts are not very different.
He predicted, “Pitching is stable. There won’t be many self-destructions with walks,” and expected, “There will be variables depending on how to control low and how to mix balls differently during the season, but in general, I will throw well.”
