Kim Kwang-hyun signed a two-year deal with St. Louis Cardinals in the MLB. However, before he goes to unfamiliar territory, the left-hander pitcher joined the SK Wyverns training camp in Florida.
Both the Wyverns and Cardinals have off-season camps in Florida. Kim spent some time with the Wyverns in their spring training camp in Vero Beach at the start of February. Then, he will head to Jupiter to report to the Cardinals’ spring training.
Kim didn’t answer any media requests while training with the Wyverns, according to SK Wyverns betting reports. He reported to the Cardinals’ camp Sunday as the team scheduled catchers and pitchers to show up by Tuesday. Also, the team’s first workout will be on Wednesday.

However, it will be a different story in St. Louis. Sports betting reviews analysts expect him not to be part of the starting rotation of the team at the start of the season. He needs to earn his spot in the rotation.
It will be a fierce competition for the fifth spot in the pitching rotation for the Cardinals between Kim and Carlos Martinez. The latter is a starter in the All-Star game. Also, he served as a closer when Jordan Hicks suffered from an injury.
C-Mart converted 24 out of 27 save opportunities. However, he is suffering from shoulder issues. Based on sports betting picks reports, he had an off-season procedure to tackle the shoulder discomfort.
Also, Kim is a left-hander, which is something that the Cardinals are missing in their lineup. All four starters are right-handers. They are Dakota Hudson, Jack Flaherty, Adam Wainwright, and Miles Mikolas.
