‘MLB.com’ reported on the 22nd (hereinafter Korean time), “Paul Skins, the first pick in the rookie draft, was promoted to Double-A Altoona Curve within a month of starting his pro career.”
Skins is a ‘top prospect’ who was nominated by the Pittsburgh Pirates with the first overall pick in the major league rookie draft on the 10th of last month. The Skins signed a contract with Pittsburgh for a deposit of 9.2 million dollars (approximately 12.3 billion won), surpassing the 8,416,300 dollars (approximately 11.2 billion won) received by Spencer Torkelson, who was selected by the Detroit Tigers with the first overall pick in the 2020 rookie draft. He broke the record for the largest contract for a rookie in the major leagues.
The reason Skins was able to receive such a large amount is clear. Skins is a ‘fireballer’ who throws a fastball of up to 102 miles (about 164.2 km), and received a perfect score of 80 on his fastball on the 20-80 scale of the MLB pipeline. When ‘MLB.com’ delivered the news of Skins’ overall first pick, it poured out high praise, saying, “Skins is the best pitcher in college since Stephen Strasburg (Washington).”
Skins played 19 games this year while attending the University of Louisiana, striking out 209 in 122⅔ innings, and was 12-2 with a 1.69 ERA. Besides, he has excellent hitting ability. Skins participated in 52 games as a hitter this season and recorded 13 home runs, 38 RBIs, and a batting average of 0.314, achieving the feat of 10 wins and 10 home runs as a ‘first’ in the American college league.
Skins, who signed a contract after being selected by Pittsburgh in the rookie draft, is showing off his talent to the fullest in the minor leagues. The Skins made their debut on the 11th in a confrontation with the ‘Rookie League’ FCL Twins held at the Pirate City Complex in Florida. made his debut
At that time, Skins threw only 10 fastballs while spraying a total of 11 pitches, and recorded 7 balls over 100 miles (about 161 km). Only 101 miles (about 162.5 km), Skins sprayed 4 pitches, 100 miles (about 161 km) 3 pitches, and 99 miles (about 159.3 km) 3 pitches, marking a show of force. Players belonging to the rookie league could hardly touch Skins’ ball. This is the part where you can see why Pittsburgh won the highest amount ever.
After making a splendid debut in the Rookie League, Skins was immediately promoted to Single A, and showed pitching with 1 hit and 2 strikeouts in 1 inning and 2 strikeouts in 2 innings. And he finally made it to Altoona Curve, a minor league double-A affiliate affiliated with Pittsburgh. ‘MLB.
‘MLB.com’ said, “It didn’t take long for Skins to prove why he was named No. 1 overall. In 3 games, he recorded 1 hit and 5 strikeouts,” and “4 weeks until the end of Altuna’s season There is still time, but if I don’t play more at the level of Double-A or higher, I’m expected to play about 4 games.”
Skins, who is currently ranked third among all major league prospects, caught the eye of Pittsburgh coach Derek Shelton with three appearances. ‘MLB.com’ said, “As we go through the year, we know there will be progress on where the Skins will go, and we’re taking that step.” and gave a thumbs up.
At the current momentum, Skins could even aim for a call-up to the major leagues when the entry list expands in September. However, Skins, who hit the professional stage after throwing a lot of balls in the college league, will not play as many innings in the minor leagues as he did in the previous three appearances, so his big league debut is likely to be in the 2024 season at the earliest.
