Jacob deGrom (35, Texas Rangers)’s powerful fastball at 100 miles per hour (about 161 km) hits the bat.
DeGrom started against the Baltimore Orioles in the ‘2023 Major League Baseball’ held at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas on the 6th. Until the 4th inning on this day, he perfectly blocked the opponent’s batting line with perfect pitches. His powerful fastball and primary slider were powerful.
DeGrom faltered briefly in the top of the fifth when his perfect pitch was broken. After being hit by a double by the leadoff batter, he allowed two runs with a walk, a fielder’s choice, and a timely hit. Although he was shaken for a while, he soon found stability and ended the day’s pitching with a quality start (3 earned runs or less in 6 innings starting).메이저놀이터
The final score was 6 innings, 2 hits, 11 strikeouts and 2 runs. He showed good condition enough to shoot 99 miles (about 159 km) in the last 92nd pitch.
DeGrom signed a five-year, 242 billion won free agent contract with Texas during the offseason. Although he has the stigma of “glass body” due to frequent injuries, he is one of the league’s best pitchers who won the National League Sai video for two consecutive years in the 2018-2019 season.
The Texas team is giving deGrom a lot of money and has a lot to look forward to. However, his first appearance, which was his debut, was lackluster. He gave up 6 hits, including a home run, in 3⅔ innings against the Philadelphia Phillies in the last 1st, giving up 5 runs.
deGrom immediately got back on track. In his second appearance, he pitched flawlessly to help his team win 5-2. The victory was the first win for Texas.
The pitch that reminded me of deGrom’s heyday. Expectations are rising as to what kind of performance he will show this year.
