On June 6 (KST), ESPN’s Jeff Passan announced on social media that Peddy has agreed to a two-year, $15 million (19.96 billion won) contract with the Chicago White Sox.

Peddy played in Washington through 2022. He made his KBO debut in the 2023 season, signing with NC for a total of $1 million. In 30 games and 180⅓ innings this year, he went 20-6 with a 2.00 ERA and 209 strikeouts.

He won the “Triple Crown” by leading the league in wins, ERA, and strikeouts. He became the first pitcher to record 20 wins and 200 strikeouts in the same season in 37 years, since Seon Dong-yeol in 1986. For his performance, Peddy was named the regular season MVP.

NC also made a maximum offer for Pedi, including a multi-year contract. However, the KBO has a foreign salary cap. Also, due to the size of the big league market, it was difficult for NC to win the ‘money game’.

When he played for Washington, Pedi’s salary was $21.5 million (about 2.82 billion won). Peddie is returning to the big leagues with a more than tripled salary based on his stellar performance in Korea.
