‘Super Rookie’ Kim Seo-hyun to start against Lotte in the 2nd team on the 15th, manager Kim Sung-gap “35 pitches scheduled…I hope he finds confidence”
Will it be a confidence booster?
Hanwha Eagles’ ‘super rookie’ Kim Seo-hyun (19) will start the Futures League (2nd team) game on the 15th. He will pitch in an away game against the Lotte Giants at Sangdong Stadium in Gimhae. It will be his first appearance in a week after his registration with the first team was canceled on the 8th.
In the Futures League, he will continue to pitch as a starter and increase his pitch count. He will have plenty of time to check his pitching style, pitching form, etc. and seek direction.
Hanwha Future Team manager Kim Sung-gap said, “We are expecting around 35 pitches and 1-2 innings on the first day. We need to see what he threw in the first game, but we’re thinking about 50 pitches for the second game. I hope he throws casually in tomorrow’s game.” “Even if I was in the spotlight in high school, I would have been under a lot of pressure in the first team game,” he said.
In the bottom of the seventh inning against the Doosan Bears on April 7, Kim gave up two runs with one out. With a 3-1 lead, he gave up a walk and a straight fly ball. Two runs on four hits and two walks in ⅓ inning, eight pitches. In a flash, starter Moon Dong-joo’s win was blown and the team fell behind 3-6.
Choi Won-ho shared the news of Kim Seo-hyun’s expungement from the first team, saying, “He looked around after yesterday’s game. He’s not that kind of player, but he seems to have lost confidence. He needs time to reorganize.”
The first task in the Futures League is to improve his pitching. Kim Seo-hyun, who joined the first team on April 19 through the Futures League, had a rocky start to his time in the first team. At times, he dominated with a fastball that reached nearly 160 kilometers per hour, and at other times, he self-destructed with four-pitchers and wild pitches. 메이저사이트
In 17⅔ innings in 18 first-team games, he struck out 23 and walked 18 on four pitches. He walked 13 and hit five.
“Seo-hyun Kim is an asset to Korean baseball,” said Kim Sung-gap. I hope he finds his confidence in the Futures League first. It’s a lot different from a first-team bullpen position where you suddenly have to warm up and pitch when your pitches are showing problems. I’m curious to see how he prepares, sets up and throws.”
