‘Rookie’ Jun-seok Shim, 8K perfect pitching in 4 innings in his US debut

 Sim Jun-seok (19), who entered the U.S. last year and was evaluated as the biggest high school graduate in Korea, made a perfect pitch in his official debut match.

Shim Jun-seok, a member of the Pittsburgh-affiliated Rookie Level Florida Complex League (FCL) Pirates, started on the 11th (Korean time) in a match against the FCL Baltimore Rookie Team held in Pirate City, Bradenton, Florida, USA.스포츠토토

Shim Jun-seok, who drew attention for his fastball that reached 160 km/h during his time at Deoksu High School, signed a contract with the Pittsburgh Pirates for $750,000 without participating in the KBO League rookie draft last year and advanced to the American stage.

After starting the season, he appeared only in practice games, but he appeared in an official game for the first time in the game today. The rookie league, which has a shorter season compared to other levels of the minor leagues, started earlier this month.

His first start was perfect. He did ‘perfect pitching’ with 8 strikeouts and allowed no hits or walks against 12 batters in 4 innings.

Excluding the strikeout, the remaining four batters were treated as one infield ground ball and three outfield fly balls.

He struck out three batters in a row in the first inning, then added two strikeouts each in the second and third innings. In the 4th inning, he struck out one more and showed off his outstanding pitch.

As it was his debut game, he did not play long innings, and Pittsburgh appointed a bullpen pitcher from the 5th inning. The game ended with Pittsburgh winning 9-4.
