Hanwha Eagles veteran Jang Min-jae (34) also had a personal training session with Ryu Hyun-jin (37, FA) in January. Lee Tae-yang joined the team, and Jang Min-jae and Lee Tae-yang took two more young guns to Okinawa at Ryu’s request. The main characters are right-handed Nam Ji-min (23) and left-handed Kim Ki-joong (22).월카지노주소
After graduating from the Busan Jeongbogo Institute, Nam joined the team as the eighth-ranked team in the second round in 2020. He had one win and seven losses with an ERA of 6.45 in 16 games last season. He had three wins and 19 losses with an ERA of 6.45, in 41 games in the first division. His pitching skills were said to be comparable to those of Moon Dong-ju and Kim Seo-hyun.
However, he had many hits and lost many runs. According to Statistics, a baseball statistics website, Nam Ji-min had an average fastball speed of 145.5 kilometers per hour in the 2023 season. His fastball hit ratio was 0.323 and slider hit ratio was 0.364. He needs to think hard to improve the quality of his pitches.
After graduating from Yushin High School, Kim joined the club as the second runner-up in the second round of 2021. Last season, he won 37 games with one win, three losses, one hold, and an earned run average of 4.63. He had three wins and nine losses and one hold, and an earned run average of 4.80, in 57 games in the first division. He has had many ups and downs in his ball control over the past three years.
Choi Won-ho, who directs the spring camp at Melbourne Ball Park in Victoria, Australia, said that Kim Ki-joong is aiming to join the starting lineup of four to five players, including rookie Hwang Joon-seo, Kim Min-woo and Lee Tae-yang. Nam Ji-min is also a candidate for starting lineup in a broader sense.
The two received sweatshirt training from Ryu Hyun-jin in Okinawa. Jang Min-jae said, “I recommended it because Hyun-jin asked me to recommend it. Since you are left-handed, I recommended Kijung. Kijung got really upgraded as he learned from Hyun-jin. I saw the bullpen pitching and it got better.”
Even Jang Min-jae said, “Hyunjin doesn’t look at me when Taeyang or I play catch ball. However, Jimin and Kijung kept watching me throw. Jimin and Kijung have a great experience. It’s amazing that an active Major League player does that for me. I wish Kijung and Jimin were the same age as me. Kijung and Jimin are pitchers who will lead Hanwha for over 10 years. I think they will be good pitchers.”
In the Hanwha Eagles, Moon Dong-ju has virtually broken the eggshell to become the native ace of Young Gun. Last year’s No. 1 ranking Kim Seo-hyun runs for the closing pitcher, turning to the bullpen. This year’s No. 1 ranking Hwang Joon-seo is also seeking to start. However, Hanwha has many young pitchers besides top-tier prospects. Nam Ji-min and Kim Ki-joong are representative examples.
Coach Choi Won-ho also admitted his future by looking at their bullpen pitching. He also praised them for their good physical shape in Okinawa. The first mission is to get in shape well in line with the two warm-up matches and exhibition matches against the Australian national team. Choi’s view is that players who are unsure of their position should.
