KIA handsome foreign pitcher May ERA 7.71 ‘shock’… Baseball notes become thicker 

The average ERA is 7.71 only in May.

KIA foreign pitcher Sean Anderson is definitely suspicious. In 4 games played in May, he had 3 losses and an average ERA of 7.71. He earned 14 in 16.1 innings. On the 28th, Gwangju LG Electronics was sluggish with 4 hits (1 home run), 2 strikeouts, 4 runs and 6 runs (3 earned) in 3 innings.

Anderson was good with an average ERA of 2.58 with 3 wins and 2 losses in 6 games in April. Mix a slider, curve, changeup, and two-seam with a fastball that can reach up to 150 km. However, in May, his pitches were somewhat shaken and the ratio of allowing correct hits increased.

MBC commentator Jeong Min-cheol,메이저사이트 who relayed the game, said, “I looked at Anderson with anxiety from the beginning of the season.” He said, “The pitch is good, but I get hit. He uses a variety of pitches, but in the end, the proportion of four-seams and sliders is high.”

In fact, Anderson had 42 four-seams and 30 sliders out of 83 pitches that day. The use of curveballs, changeups, and two-seams was extremely low. According to the baseball statistics website Statties, until this day, Anderson used 46.8% of the slider and 38.3% of the four-seam. The two pitches account for 85.1% of the total. Commissioner Jeong Min-cheol said, “This is enough to get hit.”

In the end, it comes to the conclusion that Anderson needs more research with power analysis and catcher on pitch design and pattern. The pitch itself is good, so I am not the type to give up a lot of points. The game against Hanwha in Daejeon on the 22nd should be regarded as an exception, and on this day, the bases were loaded one after another in the early stages due to mistakes and walks, but they endured well, giving only one point each.

However, compared to April, it is necessary to check the part where the pitched ammunition has expanded. Just looking at the graphic of Statties, the number of balls out of the strike zone has increased somewhat. If the number of pitches is adversely affected by walks, and errors are mixed, the possibility of large-scale concessions increases, as in the case against Hanwha. Coach Kim Jong-kook also did not see Anderson as the type who would easily collapse if he focused more on control.

KIA is uneasy throughout the first two months of Adonis Medina. I hoped that old-type foreign pitchers would form a strong 1st to 3rd starter with Yang Hyeon-jong, but when I opened the lid, only Yang Hyeon-jong did my part. Anderson, who was shaken in May, should return to his April form in June. There are some parts where I didn’t get help from the defense, but I need to readjust myself. It seems that the baseball notes written from years ago will become thicker.
