MVP → $15 million contract in ML… ‘Monster Ace’ Peddy even has golden gloves. ‘Unanimous failure 91.8% of votes’

There were no upsets. Eric Peddie (30-NC Dinos) won the MVP award and a golden glove.

Pedi won the Golden Glove in the pitching category at the 2023 KBO Golden Glove Awards on Nov. 11 at the COEX Auditorium in Samseong-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul.

He is the 12th NC player to win the award. He is the second NC pitcher to win the award in eight years, following Eric Hacker in 2015.

Pitchers are eligible for the Golden Glove if they are 1. titleholders, 2. pitchers with 3.10 or more wins in regulation innings, 3.10 or more wins, 4.30 or more saves, or 5.30 or more holds.

For Pedi, the Golden Glove was well-deserved. Pedi was the best pitcher in the KBO this season. After signing with NC for $1 million, the most for a first-year foreign player, Pedi went 20-6 with a 2.00 ERA in 30 games.랭크카지노

He led the league in wins, ERA, and strikeouts (209).

After a 4-1 record and 0.47 ERA in six games in the month of April, Pedi faltered a bit after midseason, but maintained a double-digit ERA and regained his form in September with a 4-0 record and 0.80 ERA in seven games. On October 16, he pitched 5⅔ scoreless innings against the KIA Tigers, but a hit to his right arm kept him out of the wild-card decider and semi-playoffs.

In the first round of the playoffs against the KT Wiz, he pitched six innings of one-run ball, but was unable to pitch further as he was again unwell. Despite the ‘tackling controversy’, he was recognized for his sincerity when he broke down in tears after NC failed to advance to the Korean Series.

This is the first time in 37 years that a player has recorded 20 wins and 200 strikeouts at the same time since Sun Dong-yeol (Hae-tae) in 1986. It has only happened five other times in the KBO.

He was a tricky hitter for hitters because he threw fastballs up to 150 kilometers per hour with precision and had a sweeper as his main weapon.

Pedi proved himself to be one of the best pitchers in the game, winning both the KBO Defensive Player of the Year and MVP awards, with the latter receiving 102 out of 111 votes, an overwhelming 91.9% of the vote.

NC paid the most money ever for a foreigner and guaranteed him a multi-year contract, but it wasn’t easy as both Japan and the United States jumped into the fray.

When asked about his next destination after the KBO Awards, Pedi said, “I’ll have to talk to NC. All possibilities are open,” he said, adding, “Whatever choice I make, the most important selection criteria will be my family.”

In the end, Peddy left for the Chicago White Sox. Local media reported a two-year, $15 million deal.

Pedi made KBO history and capped it off with a Golden Glove. Pedi received 267 votes. That’s 91.8% of the vote. Kelly (LG – 8 votes), Ko Young-pyo (KT – 6 votes), Lim Chan-kyu (LG – 3 votes), Lee Yi-ri (KIA – 2 votes), Kim Kwang-hyun (SSG), Kim Won-jung (Lotte), Peña (Hanwha), and Benjamin (KT – 1 vote) each received votes.

“I didn’t receive the award, but I’m nervous to translate. I got a call from Pedi,” he said.

Son replied, “Hello. This is Eric Peddie. First of all, my heart is heavy for not being able to attend the Golden Globe Awards. I’m honored, and I want to congratulate my fellow recipients. I’m happy, and I’m glad to be recognized as a baseball player. I would like to honor my teammates, managers, coaches, and staff for their support during this unforgettable season, and I wish them the best of luck until we meet again,” said Pedi.

“I would like to express my sincere congratulations to Pedi for getting a great contract as a teammate,” said Son.
