Last year’s KBO regular-season Most Valuable Player (MVP), Pedi (Chicago White Sox), made his return to Major League Baseball (MLB).

Peddie started the 2024 MLB Baseball World Series against the Detroit Tigers at Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago, Illinois, USA, on April 1 (ET), allowing two runs on five hits (two home runs) with seven strikeouts and one walk in 4⅔ innings.

He was pulled after two outs in the bottom of the fifth inning with his team trailing 1-2, but escaped with a 3-2 comeback win.

In his first MLB start since 2022 with the Washington Nationals, Peddy pitched a scoreless third inning. He was hit by Kerry Carpenter with two outs in the first and Gio Ursella with two outs in the second, but was able to get out of the inning without further damage. The third inning ended with a strikeout.

With a 1-0 lead, the team struck first in the fourth inning.

Carpenter, working a full count, hit a six-pitch sweeper high and away from the plate for a game-tying solo shot over the right-field fence.

After the blow, Peddy was shaken up, giving up a single to Mark Canha and a walk to Colt Keith, but he retired the next two batters to end the inning.

But that didn’t stop the comeback home run in the fifth inning that tied the game at 1-1. Once again, the sweeper was the weapon of choice. 안전놀이터 추천 The seventh pitch he threw to leadoff hitter Jake Rogers was right in the middle of the plate, and it went over the left-field fence for a three-run homer.

Peddy struck out Parker Meadows and Spencer Tokelson in succession to give himself some breathing room, but the White Sox quickly made a mound change. Peddie was replaced by Tanner Banks to close out the game.

Peddie was a dominant pitcher in the KBO last year. He went 20-6 with a 2.00 ERA in the NC Dinos uniform. He won the pitcher’s triple crown of wins, ERA, and strikeouts (209), and also recorded 20 wins and 200 strikeouts in a single season.

He was named the regular season MVP and won the Pitcher’s Golden Glove.

After proving his worth in the KBO in just one season, he signed a two-year, $15 million deal with the White Sox last December to return to MLB.

He earned a spot in the White Sox starting rotation this season, but he wasn’t smiling in his first start of the season.
