Ben Joyce (LA Angels), who made his professional debut last year, is continuing his good form in the demonstration game. Joyce is a right-handed pitcher with some of the best velocity in the major leagues.
Joyce began his professional career after being selected by the Angels in the 2022 draft. He is a college graduate from the University of Tennessee and is 22 years old, relatively old for a rookie. Although he underwent Tommy John surgery, he showed great speed and was in the spotlight by throwing a top speed of 105.5 mph (169.7 km/h).
Last year, Joyce threw the ball in Double-A and showed a good performance with 1 win in 13 games, 2.08 ERA, 4 holds, 1 save and 20 strikeouts.온라인바카라
Joyce, who ranked 11th in the team’s prospect rankings this season, has been showing great success since the exhibition game. He pitched in 5 games and recorded only 2 hits, 5 walks, no runs and 6 strikeouts.
In particular, in his most recent pitching, against the Kansas City Royals on the 18th (Korean time), he recorded 1 inning, 2 strikeouts and no runs. Here, as the restraint 104 miles (approximately 167.3 km/h) came out, fans and ‘MLB.com’ received a lot of attention from the media.
“I’ve crossed 104 mph a few times in college baseball, but I haven’t gone back as a pro,” Joyce said. But he’s happy to go up again. He said my arms are in great condition and I want to increase my speed.”
If Joyce has perfect control along with his speed, he will give the Angels tremendous power. Because the Angels’ bullpen is not strong.
Right now, the Angels have Carlos Estevez, Ryan Tepera, Jose Quihada, Aaron Roof, and Matt Moore, but they don’t have a clear finisher. It’s very unlikely that Joyce will be called up to the majors right away, but if he joins later, he could even try to finish.
