    I’m curious about Lotte’s Dae-Eun Rhee. I’ve only seen him pitch 1 game so far because I was curious to see who’s this rookie pitcher who has gone 3-0 in 4 games. When I looked at his pitch breakdown for that day, I noticed he didn’t pitch sliders. Did he not really ever? Almost all (if not all) of the other starters do, because it’s one of the mainstay pitches in a starter’s arsenal.
