SSG Landers submarine pitcher Park Jong-hoon (32) re-challenges his first win.
Park Jong-hoon will start in the 3rd game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League season against the Doosan Bears at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 30th.
SSG caught all the previous two games. SSG, which is aiming to sweep the three-game series over the weekend, is looking forward to Park Jong-hoon. Park Jong-hoon has yet to win in three games this season. He only has 1 loss. His earned run average is 7.20.
On the 7th, his first appearance of the season, he pitched 6 scoreless innings against the Hanwha Eagles, but did not receive any scoring support. The next 2 games went down on their own. Against the Samsung Lions on the 13th, he gave up 8 runs in 3 innings, and against the KT Wiz on the 19th, he endured until 6 innings, but struggled with 5 runs (4 earned runs).
He worked out steadily during the off-season and started building his body in earnest in a warm place before his colleagues before the 1st camp in Florida, USA.
Park Jong-hoon, who returned after elbow surgery and rehabilitation last year, prepared for the season from the beginning in good health this year. He spent well from Texas, where Choo Shin-soo’s American home is located, to the 1st camp in Florida, USA, and the 2nd camp in Okinawa, Japan.
His physical condition is fine. He didn’t neglect training either. Even during his rehabilitation, he started exercising at 6 am. He is a very diligent player. However, there is still a win this season, and there are concerns as they have struggled in the last two games.안전놀이터
However, pitching coach Jo Woong-cheon said, “There is no big problem. It will get better.” However, as before, the height of the ball is lowered again.
Park Jong-hoon is the player who releases the ball at the lowest point in the league. He reportedly even scratched the mound during pitching practice and bled. It held up well last year, his return season from injury. However, he has risen quite a bit this season at the release point. He is said to have risen more than 5cm than usual.
Coach Cho said, “I am lowering it again and getting a feel for it. He is working hard and training.” The lower he throws the ball, the more difficult he is in the position of an opponent hitter. In the case of a sinker that Park Jong-hoon throws a lot, he says that if he throws low, he doesn’t see well. Attention is focusing on whether Park Jong-hoon will be able to show the power of nuclear submarines again in this match.
