“In the end, curveball and forkball are the key to success as a starting pitcher.”
Regarding Lee Jung-yong, who was scheduled to start on the day before the match against SSG Landers in Jamsil, which was canceled due to rain on the 23rd, LG Twins coach Yeom Kyung-yeop said, “The starting rotation will change due to rain.”온라인바카라
Due to the rain, Lee Jung-yong will be pitching 18 days after the resignation against the Lotte Giants on the 9th, before the All-Star break. The most pitches he pitched this season were 59, but this is expected to increase further in the future. Manager Yeom said, “I hope you throw 6 innings with about 80 pitches.”
He has a long pitching interval in the first team, but he played one practice game with the Futures (second team) team during the All-Star break. Lee Jung-yong started against the Icheon Doosan Bears on the 17th and recorded 4 hits, 6 strikeouts and no runs in 5 innings.
There was a harvest in this practice game. Lee Jeong-yong not only increased the number of pitches to 71, but also saw the effect of curves (18) and forkballs (7). Director Yeom said, “I threw a lot of curve and forkball, and the result was not bad.” How much you increase the value of these two pitches in pitching design can determine whether or not you will succeed as a starting pitcher.”
Lee Jung-yong was the league’s best reliever pitcher last year, recording the most 22 holds in a single season. He started from the bullpen this season as well, but turned into a starter on the 25th of last month against Jamsil Lotte. It was a decision based on the will of director Yeom and himself, who saw the potential through selection. In the three games he started, he had no wins, one loss, and an earned run average (ERA) of 6.75, but he is aiming for a rebound in the second half.
LG’s 4th and 5th selections this season are uncertain. While Kim Yun-shik and Lee Min-ho, who were unable to get their seats despite initially getting the opportunity, are highly likely to get another chance in August by reorganizing their condition, attention is focusing on whether Lee Jung-yong will show his potential as a starter until their return. Director Yeom explained, “Kim Yoon-shik can join in mid-August, and Lee Min-ho can join in late August.”
