On the 27th (Korean time), Pittsburgh Pittsburgh Pittsburgh Pittsburgh Pittsburgh Pittsburgh Pittsburgh Pittsburgh Pittsburgh Pittsburgh Pittsburgh Pittsburgh Pittsburgh Pittsburgh Pittsburgh Pittsburgh Pittsburgh general manager Ben Sherington said, “Shim Junsuk will spend a certain amount of time in the Dominican Republic and then be transferred to Bradenton, Florida. And when the season starts, I will join the Florida Complex League (FCL) team.”
This means that Shim Jun-seok will start in the rookie league this year. After participating in the Dominican Winter League and working hard for about two weeks, he moved to Florida, where the team’s spring training was held in mid-February, prepared for the season at the minor league camp, and started the season at the team’s rookie team, the FCL Pirates, in early April. it’s a schedule
Among the 22 international amateur free agents that Pittsburgh signed this time, it was expected that Shim Jun-seok would start in Single A as he had the highest ranking (10th place) in the MLB pipeline rankings, but the club thought differently. It is interpreted as meaning that it will help you adapt solidly from the basics.
However, it does not seem that he will stay in the rookie league for a long time. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, an influential magazine in the Pittsburgh area, said, “Shim Jun-seok stays in the Dominican Republic for a short time, trains at the Pirates’ Brandonton camp, and then joins the FCL rookie team based in Pirate City.” If he makes a great performance, he predicts that he will be promoted to the level of Low-A and higher.”
This means that if Shim Joon-seok, who was diagnosed as having no problems with his elbow and toe, which he had injured in high school during the physical examination, can play an active role in the minor leagues this year without injury, he can be promoted to Single-A or Single-A+ in the second half.
There are two things that Pittsburgh saw as Shim Jun-seok’s strengths. He has a fastball in the mid-90s and up to 100 mph, and a calm game management ability that is rare at such a young age. If Shim Jun-seok refines these qualities from the rookie league, the club expects that he will be able to debut in the major leagues within at least three years. 온라인바카라
Shim Jun-seok revealed that Gerrit Cole is his role model. Cole, who made her debut in Pittsburgh, is a major league fireballer who is currently playing as the New York Yankees ace. She joined Pittsburgh with the first overall pick in the first round of the 2011 draft and spent nearly two years in the minor leagues before moving up to the majors and quickly established herself as a top-notch pick.
Cole made her major league debut in June in 2013 after pitching 12 games at Triple-A. She pitched 200 innings in 38 games in the minor leagues, went 14-10, had a 2.84 earned run average, and struck out 183 on the big league mound.
Shim Jun-seok also hears the nickname ‘young Park Chan-ho’. He said that only unpolished balls are fast pitchers. As soon as Park joined the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1994, he was registered on the big league roster and had a season. The 17th and 18th players in major league history to go directly to the big leagues without going through the minor leagues are Park Chan-ho and his colleague Darren Dryport.
However, Park Chan-ho pitched in just two games and went down to the minor leagues after 17 days after experiencing extreme difficulty in pitching, giving up 5 hits and 5 walks in 4 innings. He actually started playing American baseball for the Double-A San Antonio Missions. Park Chan-ho, who appeared in 20 games in Double-A that year and marked 5-7 and an earned run average of 3.55, was promoted to Triple-A the following year and pitched full-time, before returning to the major leagues in September of that year, opening an era of success for him.
Both Cole and Park Chan-ho spent about a year and a half in the minor leagues. At the time of their minor league debut, Cole was 22 years old and Park Chan-ho was 21 years old. Shim Jun-seok, who is 19 years old this year, will have to spend three years of patience as he is starting in the rookie league.
