The best prospect pitcher who has just turned 20 unfortunately failed to fill the 5th inning in his major league debut.
The main character is right-hander Eury Perez, who was ranked 9th overall and 1st by the Marlins in the MLB Pipeline 2003 prospect list.
Perez started in a home game against the Cincinnati Reds held on the 13th (Korean time) at Londipo Park, the home stadium, and gave up 4 hits and 2 walks in 4⅔ innings and gave up 2 runs. .
Miami turned 3-2 at the end of the 5th inning, but the bullpen allowed a reversal and lost 4-7. Perez had nothing to do with winning or losing.
Perez pitched 88. He threw 40 four-seam fastballs with a high velocity of 99.1 miles (159.5 km) and an average of 97.5 miles per hour. He had 26 sliders with a high of 93.5 mph, 18 curveballs and four changeups.
Perez allowed two runs with two solo home runs, but showed off his strong pitch by striking out seven.
Perez was born on April 15, 2003. He made his major league debut at the age of 20 years and 27 days. This is the record for the youngest major league debut in Miami history. The end was 20 years and 250 days, marked by Jose Fernandez in 2013. It is also the first time that Perez has made his 2003 major league debut. That is to say, he is the ‘youngest’ among existing major league players.
Born in the Dominican Republic, he pitched in six games for the Double-A Pensacola Blue Wahoos this season, going 3-1 and throwing 31 innings, posting an ERA of 2.32 and 42 strikeouts. In the minor leagues, he had a fastball of 94 to 97 mph and a high of 100 mph. Miami notified Perez of promotion to the big leagues on the 11th, and he joined the team on the 12th.
However, it was none other than Sandy Alcantara, the strongest ace in the major leagues and winner of the National League Cy Young Award last year, who met him at Miami International Airport. He picked him up from the airport and brought him to his lodgings. Alcantara and Perez have the same agent.
The two trained together last winter in their hometown of the Dominican Republic and bonded for quite some time as Perez participated in big-league spring training for the first time. MLB.com said, ‘Perez will be notified of the news of a lifetime last Wednesday. It was none other than Alcantara who came out to meet him,’ he said. ‘The two formed a close friendship as mentors and disciples. We trained together in the offseason and didn’t fall apart during the spring training camp.”
Alcantara said to MLB.com, “I was watching TV at home, and the agent called and said, ‘Yuri is coming to the airport, let’s go pick it up together.먹튀검증
It is said that Alcantara gave Perez support and advice while driving to the accommodation. MLB.com posted a video of Alcantara picking up the news of Perez’s call-up that day, and Alcantara told Perez, “Enjoy this moment. (Before your debut) is only once in your life. After tomorrow, you will become a major leaguer. You can do it. When you get on the mound, just do it like you did in the minors.”
However, Pérez, who pitched well with no runs, scored the first run after hitting a left-handed solo home run by Tyler Stephenson in the top of the 4th inning. The 97 mph fastball on the 6th pitch, thrown from a full count, was a ball high toward the body. And after two deaths in the top of the 5th inning when the score was tied 1-1, this time Jake Fraley hit a solo shot in the middle right. The first pitch, a 96-mile fastball, was slightly centered.
Miami immediately replaced Perez with Brian Hoying.
