Will KIA operate two left and right victory groups?
The 2023 mound of the KIA Tigers has been enriched in quality and quantity. The bullpen’s new strength has changed so much that it can operate the left and right two-track pilseungjo. New faces such as Kim Dae-yu, a free agent transfer transfer student, Kim Ki-hoon, a former soldier, and Choi Ji-min, who are dreaming of a second-year leap, are boosting the bullpen power.
Dae-yu Kim, a compensation player for catcher Park Dong-won, who transferred to LG as a free agent, is a veteran with 37 holds in the 2021-2022 season온라인카지노. He was dropped as soon as he saw the list of protected players to reinforce the left-handed bullpen. It is evaluated that it is possible to play one inning as well as one batter. Here is Lee Jun-young, who recorded a career high as the only left-handed pilseung agent last year.
At the end of last season, Kim Ki-hoon returned with a strong 150km ball. Until the exhibition game, they are competing for selection, but the weight is being put on the bullpen. Manager Kim Jong-guk showed confidence, saying, “Dae-yu has a lot of experience as a bullpen pitcher. Ki-hoon has a good pitch and can be used as a starter or long man.” There is also a prospect that Kim Ki-hoon can finish it.
20-year-old dark horse Choi Ji-min appeared. With the increase in velocity up to 148 km, the ball control and position improved remarkably. There is no clear performance in the first year of his 2022 season debut. It is classified as a new force this year. Pitching coach Jeong Myung-won gave a generous evaluation, saying, “Compared to last year, he has improved considerably. Along with Dae-yu and Ki-hoon, he can become the height of the bullpen.” If Choi Ji-min shows competitiveness, he can build a Pilseung team as a left-handed pitcher.
Right-hander Pil Seung-jo has already proven his competitiveness in the league with the JJJ line. Jang Hyun-sik, the 2021 hold king, who underwent surgery to remove a bone fragment in his elbow, has a steep rehabilitation rate. He is expected to return by May at the latest. Jeon Sang-hyun, who has a finishing experience, has the ability to finish one inning. With Jung Hae-young, the finisher who recorded 30 saves for two consecutive years, the Woo Woo Woo line is operated.
However, right-handed agents are not enough until Jang Hyun-sik returns. Coach Kim Jong-guk is paying attention to Yoo Seung-chul, who shined last year when he threw a 150km ball. He showed improvement in Arizona spring camp and is expected to be a right-hander. Coach Chung expected, “We need a right-handed bullpen, and it is a resource that can be supplemented.”
Coach Jeong said, “Last year and the year before last, the mound resources were limited. This year, new faces came into the bullpen and it seems to have gained strength. In the end, the strength of the bullpen this year depends on how well the new pitchers play their part. I will compete,” he ordered to do his best. KIA’s new bullpen challenges scalability from the practice game against Samsung on the 1st.
