The 160km duo of Hanwha’s dream will be seen soon… ‘Conditions for call-up’ presented by Subero
- on Apr 18, 2023
Hanwha, which has been at the bottom for the past three years, has instead obtained the right to pick the first pick in the rookie draft and recently added big fish. In the 2022 rookie draft, right-handed orthodox Moon Dong-ju (20) and in the 2023 rookie draft, right-handed sidearm Kim Seo-hyun (19) were obtained.
As the team is a valuable resource obtained through enduring times of pain, great expectations are being placed on fostering. First of all, Moon Dong-ju’s start is good. Moon Dong-ju, who calmly built up his body last year in the 2nd team, hinted at the possibility at the end of the season, and joined the opening rotation this year. In his first two games, he pitched well, going 1-1 with a 1.64 ERA.
In particular, in the match against KIA in Gwangju on the 12th, he surprised everyone by throwing a fastball of 160.1km per hour against Park Chan-ho in the first inning. This was the fastest ball by a Korean player in the history of the KBO League. He may not be able to throw a ball for 160km each time, but when the days get warmer, he can expect more velocity than this.
Moon Dong-ju clearly confirmed the possibility of his settlement. Now, attention is focused on Kim Seo-hyun, who is gaining real-life experience in the second team after being excluded from the opening roster. Kim Seo-hyun also threw a 156-158km fastball in the demonstration game, receiving great expectations from fans. He still has things to improve on his breaking ball, game management, and control. However, the evaluation of “one redemption is real” continued.
If a ‘160km Duo’ is born for the first time in the history of the KBO League, it is highly likely that the team will become Hanwha this year or next year. There is a story that Kim Seo-hyun is also gradually approaching the call-up point. Hanwha’s bullpen situation is not good, and Kim Seo-hyun is recording an average ERA of 1.29 by throwing 7 innings in카지노사이트 5 Futures League games. Even if you don’t think of the words Kim Seo-hyun and prospect, if you raise the best bullpen resources in the 2nd team, you can be a strong candidate.
In the match against the SSG Futures Team (group 2) held at Ganghwa SSG Futures Field on the 16th, he threw well with 2 innings, 1 hit, 2 strikeouts and no runs. An SSG club official said about Kim Seo-hyun’s restraint, “It came out about 156 km.” Although he has his first pitch issue, it is evaluated that he is finding a sense of stability overall.
Then, what is the opinion of Hanwha coach Carlos Subero, who is in charge of making the final decision? Director Subero admits that Seohyun Kim’s talent itself is huge. It is also agreed that he is a player that can be utilized in the first team in the near future. I just need to look at his restraint and performance in the game, but I think we need to take a closer look at how Kim Seo-hyun leads the game. He deserves to be called the final condition for a call-up.
Coach Subero said, “While in the spring camps in the US and Japan, there were more opportunities to get to know Kim Seo-hyun as a person. Getting to know how mature a person is in the game situation is also a very important factor in nurturing a player.” I also receive reports, but I need to know how mature he is in the game and how well he manages his emotions.”
It is a declaration that we will look at both the technical and mental aspects, and perhaps it is also a declaration that we will not be in too much of a hurry. Coach Subero is a leader who cares a lot about the psychological stress and frustration of a prospect who failed in the first team and goes back to the second team. If anything, there is a possibility that Kim Seo-hyun will be promoted when he is in the best condition and condition to take a place in the first team.
If he goes up and down again in a hurry, both the player and the club will lose. When Kim Seo-hyun will meet the conditions for a call-up, and how the club will judge it has also emerged as a concern. It may not take that long.
