“When I told him I was going to the KBO, he came to my house…”
NC’s new foreign pitcher Tanner Tully (29) has a ‘special acquaintance’. He is familiar with special ace Drew Ruchinski (35), who played for NC for four years from 2019 to 202, going 53-36 with a 3.06 ERA in 121 games. “About five years ago, eight or nine guys would get together in the offseason and work out and stuff like that,” Tanner said before the game against Changwon Hanwha on Saturday. We formed a group.”메이저사이트
When Luchinski heard that Tanner was headed to NC, he went to Tanner’s house and gave him a KBO official baseball. Luchinski left NC this year, signing with the Oakland Athletics. Luchinski signed with the Oakland Athletics this year, so he wanted to help.
Tanner/NC Dinos, NC’s best-of-five matchup
Tanner is an ambitious player for NC. The left-hander was acquired after the team released the inconsistent Taylor Widener. He doesn’t have much velocity, but he’s more of a pinnacle pitcher who relies on his changeup and control. He made his KBO debut for the Changwon Hanwha Jeonseo on May 15, giving up three runs on six hits (two home runs) in six innings with four strikeouts.
He has been a consistent starter in the minor leagues. He hasn’t pitched in the last three weeks because he signed with NC, so his fastball was about two kilometers lower than usual, but he still managed to get through six innings. Luchinski’s help in familiarizing him with KBO pitches also helped. “The KBO balls have seams,” Tanner said. I feel like I’m getting a little bit better with my pitches,” he said. It helps him with his changeup.

Tanner said, “I reshaped my body through weight training. I’m happy that a lot of fans came. Baseball is baseball everywhere. I had some jet lag issues, but I’m happy.” He said his slider wasn’t working well in the first inning or two, but later on, it did.
“You have to trust your defense,” Tanner said. I threw a fastball to Si-Hwan Noh to get him down in the count and he hit a home run. I want to get a lot of innings as a starter, I want to get a lot of wins, and I want to get my fastball up to 91 mph.”

NC relies heavily on ace Eric Peddy. Song Kyung-ki and Shin Min-hyuk have been steady lately, but it’s hard to say that the entire starting staff has a high level of commitment. Tanner will need time to adjust to the KBO, but NC needs him to succeed as they fight for a top-five finish.
At the very least, Tanner should be a more reliable pitcher than Widener. He showed promise in his first start. Tanner was encouraged by Luchinski as he adjusted to the KBO. “Play your baseball, have fun, and the fans will love it,” Luchinski told Tanner.
