On the 20th, Kiwoom Heroes announced, “We have nominated pitching prospect Lee Kang-joon as a compensation player for Han Hyun-hee’s free agent transfer to the Lotte Giants.” Head coach Ko Hyeong-wook expressed his anticipation for Lee Kang-joon, saying, “He’s a player who doesn’t have a lot of experience, but he’s very strong at the end of the ball. His movement is excellent. He highly evaluated the potential for future growth, so we chose him without hesitation.”
Lee Kang-jun is a right-handed sidearm pitcher with a height of 180 cm and a weight of 80 kg. Lee Kang-jun, a native of Seorak High School, was nominated by kt Wiz with the 22nd overall pick in the 2nd and 3rd round of the 2020 rookie draft. Lee Kang-joon, who mainly stayed in the 2nd team, moved the team to Lotte through a trade in 2021. In his professional career, he recorded an earned run average of 9.51 with 1 win and 1 hold in 32 games.
He has yet to prove his skills, but his potential has been recognized. As can be seen from his high ranking, Lee Kang-joon entered the professional league with high expectations. This was achieved after two years of his pitching conversion. kt coach Lee Kang-cheol also coached Lee Kang-joon from close range. Lee Kang-jun also said, “Director Lee Kang-cheol also gave me 1:1 coaching. He really cared about me a lot.”
At Lotte, I received customized coaching from coach Bae Young-soo. Coach Bae Young-soo, who took over as Lotte pitching coach this winter, worked hard to solve the problem of Lee Kang-joon’s pitching. He analyzed the problem with a hawk’s eye, and suggested more than 10 training methods to make Lee Kang-joon himself find a point of improvement.
Lee Kang-jun, who was coached by legends. He is designated as a reward player and heads to the third team. Kiwoom is the representative Hwasubun team of the KBO League. It’s called a ‘nurturing restaurant’. I wonder if Lee Kang-jun will be able to take a leap forward under the Kiwoom fostering system.
Meanwhile, Lee Kang-joon will enlist in the military in May and continue his career with the Sangmu baseball team. 온라인바카라
