A reliable ally has joined professional baseball KT Wiz. Foreign starting pitcher Wes Benjamin returned.

Benjamin started against the SSG Landers in the 2024 Professional Baseball Futures League (Second Division) held at SSG Futures Field in Ganghwa, Incheon on the 30th and threw 12 balls in one inning, allowing one hit, two strikeouts and no runs.

The highest speed of the fastball was 149 km/h, and several pitch types were checked, including fastballs (5), sliders (5), change-ups (1), and curves (1).

It has been 18 days since Benjamin appeared in an actual game since the first game of a doubleheader against the Doosan Bears on the 12th.

At that time, Benjamin voluntarily resigned in the second inning, complaining of discomfort in his elbow and shoulder, and requested a three-week break from the team.

KT gave Benjamin time to recover as suggested, and Benjamin is taking steps to return as promised by the club. 파워볼사이트

After finishing pitching, Benjamin went to Jamsil Stadium in Seoul, where the first team was playing against Doosan, and gave his return greetings to the coaches, including coach Lee Kang-cheol.

Coach Lee Kang-cheol, who met with reporters ahead of the Doosan game, said, “First of all, we will check Benjamin’s condition for the final time tomorrow morning, and if there is no problem with his body, we plan to start him in the game against the Hanwha Eagles on the 4th of next month.

Coach Lee said, “After throwing 60 to 70 pitches against Hanwha, I will be able to pitch normally from the next game onwards.”

There is another player who is about to return. Local starter So Hyun-jun, who underwent elbow ligament fusion surgery last year, will soon join.

Manager Lee Kang-cheol introduced, “So Hyeong-jun is scheduled to take the mound in the Futures League game against Goyang Heroes on the 31st and throw about 45 pitches.”

This is the first time So Hyun-Jun has pitched in an actual game since the NC Dinos game on May 10 last year.

However, the exact time of joining the first team has not been determined.

Coach Lee said, “So Hyeong-jun needs to pitch a few more times in the second team,” and added, “I expect it will take about three weeks.”

Meanwhile, KT will start Oh Jae-il, who was acquired through a trade, as the fifth hitter and first baseman on this day.

Jae-il Oh’s starting appearance is his first since joining KT on the 29th. 한국야동
