Left-handed fireballer’ Ennie Romero, who once recorded 164 km per hour with the highest fastball speed, started with the first bullpen pitch.
Romero started his first bullpen pitching on the 7th, local date in the United States. Romero pitched a total of 30 bullpen pitches, including a fastball, two-seam, slider, curve, and changeup, at the spring camp held at the Jackie Robinson Training Complex in Florida. On this day, pitching was his first bullpen pitching since joining the team, throwing all his pitches and checking his physical condition.
Romero, who finished pitching, said, “Today, I focused on learning how to pitch on the mound. In addition to the fastball, I threw a breaking ball and had a process of feeling the KBO League official ball for the first time with my fingertips.”
Romero also shared his thoughts on the official ball. He explained, “The KBO league official ball feels similar to the American minor league ball. It feels smaller than the Japanese official ball.” 스포츠토토
Pitching coach Jo Woong-cheon, who watched the pitching, said, “I haven’t pitched with all my strength yet, but I felt that the fastball and the breaking ball had good overall strength and movement. In particular, the pitch is stable and the feel of throwing the ball is excellent. I look forward to pitching in the future. It does,” he said.
Lastly, Romero said, “I will do well in running and technical training to keep my body healthy during the spring camp. I will also try to prepare and learn about the play style I need to do in Korea.”
Born in the Dominican Republic, Romero joined the Tampa Bay Rays in 2008 and made his major league debut in 2013. Through 2018, he went 4-6 with a 5.12 earned run average in 137 major league games, going through the Washington Nationals, Pittsburgh Pirates and Kansas City Royals.
