“The baseball field is big, the center line defense is strong, and it’s a strong team…”
It’s still a bit strange to be an LG Twins player. Left-handed pitcher Kim Yoo-young, who came to LG as a free agent compensation player for Yoo Kang-nam, who transferred to the Lotte Giants, said, “I still don’t feel like going to the Arizona camp as an LG player.”
It is the first escape from Busan for Kim Yoo-young, who graduated from Gyeongnam High School and has lived only in Busan as the 1st nomination for Lotte in 2014. It is obviously an unfamiliar environment.
Kim Yoo-young says he only sees the positive side. “The baseball field is big, and LG’s center line defense is strong,” said Kim Yu-young. 메이저사이트
Kim Yoo-young, who experienced the postseason only once in 2017, expressed his anticipation to play the postseason wearing an LG uniform, saying, “I was very nervous at that time, but I have a very fun memory. So I have a happy excitement about the postseason.”
After the decision to go to LG, he did individual training at Jamsil Stadium and greeted his teammates, but he had not yet melted into the team. Kim Yu-young said, “I think we’re in the stage of getting closer. We’re still relying on each other with Yun Ho-sol (Hanwha → LG), who transferred together. We’re sympathetic, saying, ‘Isn’t the current situation awkward?'” and smiled.
Kim Yu-young, who recorded 6 wins, 2 losses and 13 holds as a left-handed setup man at Lotte last year, had an average ERA of 2.
Kim Yoo-young said, “There were a lot of fights, and it was the first time I’ve ever thrown so much in a short period of time.”
This season, he starts as a 5th starting candidate, not the bullpen. Coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop is paying attention to Kim Yoo-young as the left-hander along with Kim Yun-shik. “I have confidence in the 5th starter. I want to show a responsible image,” he said, “baseball is all numbers. I plan to do my best,” he said.
