“They are adapting well”.
KIA Tigers coach Kim Jong-kook showed a satisfactory response to ‘Super Rookie’ Yoon Young-chul’s smooth adaptation to the pros.
After graduating from Chungam High School, left-hander Yoon Young-cheol, who was nominated for the first round of the KIA in 2023, joined the starting lineup and is doing his part as a starting pitcher by digesting 5 innings in 3 consecutive games after the NC game on the 27th of last month.
Manager Kim Jong-guk, who met with reporters ahead of the Daegu Samsung match on the 17th, said, “Young-chul Yoon is adapting well, throwing 5 innings in 3 consecutive games. As a rookie, he is doing so well,” he praised.
“I threw a lot during my amateur days, but I plan to adjust the number of pitches and innings as it is the first year of my professional debut. He is contemplating whether to throw today and let him rest for 10 days, or next Tuesday after playing and rest for 10 days,” he added.
Did director Kim Jong-kook’s heart be conveyed? Yoon Young-cheol threw well with 4 hits, 2 walks, 2 strikeouts and 1 run in 5 ⅓ innings (own charge). Season 2 win. He posted a top speed of 141 km and threw a mix of curveball, slider and changeup.
In the first inning, Kim Ji-chan’s right-handed hit, second base steal, and Jose Pirella’s walk forced Yun Young-chul to run into a one-out 1st and 2nd base crisis. In the second episode, Kang Han-wool, Kim Tae-gun, and Oh Jae-il were tightly tied, completing the first tripartite inning. 토스카지노
After one out in the third inning, Yoon Yeong-cheol was in danger of first and second base due to Kim Ji-chan’s walk and Lee Jae-hyun’s right-handed hit, but he finished the third inning by inducing Pirella and Koo Ja-wook to fly balls in the outfield.
In the 4th inning, Kang Min-ho, Kang Han-ul, and Kim Tae-goon all grounded balls to finish the inning. In the 5th inning, Oh Jae-il, Lee Seong-gyu, and Kim Ji-chan blocked the base. In the 6th inning, Yoon Young-cheol was hit by Lee Jae-hyeon and Pirella in a row.
Yun Young-cheol, who got the first out count by handling Ja-wook Koo with an infield fly, finished the day’s mission by handing the mound to Jeon Sang-hyun at 1st and 2nd base.
