‘KBO MVP’ Peddie Lost by 1 Run in 3 Innings in his Second Appearance in an MLB Exhibition Game

Eric Peddy (31, Chicago White Sox), who succeeded in returning to the big leagues using Korean professional baseball as a springboard, suffered a loss despite pitching well in his second appearance in a Major League Baseball (MLB) exhibition game.

Peddie started in the 2024 MLB away exhibition game against the Cleveland Guardians of the 2024 American Professional Baseball League held at Goodyear Ball Park in Arizona, USA on the 9th (Korean time) and gave up 2 hits and 2 walks and 1 run in 3 innings.

The White Sox lost 1-2 due to a poor batting lineup, and Peddie suffered his first loss in an exhibition game this year.

Peddie appeared in his first exhibition game of the year against the Los Angeles Angels on the 4th and allowed 4 hits and 1 run in 2 innings.

Peddie’s midterm performance in exhibition games is 2 games, 1 loss, and an average ERA of 3.60.

Fedi, who had pitched the first inning without allowing a run, caused a crisis by allowing Andres Jimenez to hit a ball to the body with one out in the bottom of the second inning.

Jimenez stole second base and homered on Bo Naylor’s heavy hit.

However, Peddie cooked the next batter, Will Brennan, into a double play in front of the second baseman, ending the inning without allowing any additional runs.

Peddie got off to a shaky start in the third inning by walking leadoff hitter Gabriel Arias, but after catching Arias as a check, he grounded out Brayan Rocchio and Stephen Kwan in succession to complete the scheduled three innings.

Peddie debuted in the big league in 2017 and pitched 454⅓ innings in 102 MLB games (88 starting games), recording 21 wins, 33 losses, and an ERA of 5.41.

In 2019, when the Washington Nationals won the World Series, he served as the team’s 5th starter.

Peddie, who also played as Washington’s fifth starter in 2022, faltered with 6 wins, 13 losses and an ERA of 5.81, and spent the 2023 season with the NC Dinos of the KBO League.

Last year in the KBO League, Eric Peddie posted 20 wins, 6 losses, an ERA of 2.00, and 209 strikeouts, winning three awards for most wins, ERA, and strikeouts, and was named the Most Valuable Player (MVP) in the regular season.

The White Sox signed Peddie for a total of $15 million (about 19.8 billion won) over two years, and Peddie will begin the 2024 season as a big league starting pitcher.
