At the spring camp held on the 8th (Korean time) at the Jackie Robinson Training Complex in Florida, USA, Romero pitched a total of 30 bullpen pitches, including a fastball, two-seam, slider, curve, and changeup. On this day, pitching was his first bullpen pitching since joining the team, throwing all his pitches and checking his physical condition.
After pitching, he 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 first KBO league official ball with my fingertips.”
Romero is the owner of a rich career in the American Major League and Japanese professional baseball. He also experienced Korean professional baseball by signing a contract with SSG for a total of $1 million in December of last year. He said, “I am close with Ivan Nova, who played for SSG, and he told me a lot about Korea.” “I heard that the KBO is a league that is very difficult for a pitcher to adapt to. I heard it,” he said, “I played baseball in the United States and Japan, but I think there will be advantages only in Korean baseball. I want to learn a lot about the KBO league,” showing respect for Korean culture.
He also had a relationship with Choo Shin-soo (41). Romero recalled, “I dealt with Tampa Bay and Washington. Most of the players have weaknesses and points that can be attacked. But Shin-soo Choo was a very tricky player who was not good at attacking.”
According to SSG’s introduction at the time of his recruitment, Romero has the ability to put pressure on batters with a fastball that can exceed 150 km/h. He has a good breaking ball that comes out of the trajectory at the same height as his fastball and has excellent ball control, so he has stable skills as a left-handed starting pitcher.
Pitching coach Jo Ung-cheon, who watched the first pitching, also said, “I haven’t pitched with all my strength yet, but I felt that the fastball and the breaking ball had good overall power and movement. In particular, the pitch is stable and the feel of throwing the ball is excellent. I look forward to future pitching.” It is,” he praised.
Romero said, “I like aggressive pitching. My strength is to deal with batters aggressively and make them feel pressured when they step into the plate.” % I will do my best to show off my skills. I hope I can see the fans at the home stadium as soon as possible.”
