The secret weapon has finally been unveiled. Another fastball pitcher appeared in the LG bullpen. The main character is Seong Dong-hyeon (24).
On the 26th (hereinafter Korean time), Sung Dong-hyun made a relief mound as the 6th pitcher in the 7th inning against the Dutch World Baseball Classic (WBC) national team held at Salt River Field at Talking Stick in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA. Recorded 1 walk, 1 strikeout and 1 run.
Seong Dong-hyun, who climbed the mound in the 7th inning, got a heavy hit from KIA former Roger Bernardina in the first out. He next caught Wiel with a floating ball in left field, but he was hit by Palacios to the right and was driven into a crisis with 2nd out, 1st and 3rd base. He induced a fly ball to second base off Dieter at number 7 to end the inning.
Seong Dong-Hyun went to the mound in the 8th inning. He gave up a sand dune in the first company and passed the mound to Bae Jae-jun. Afterwards, Bae Jae-joon scored three hits in a row, and Seong Dong-hyun’s responsible runner came in and allowed one run.
The total number of pitches Seong Dong-hyeon threw that day was 21. He threw a mix of fastballs (17), sliders (3) and curveballs (1). The fastball restraint reached up to 152 km, and it is the highest restraint among LG pitchers who appeared on the mound that day.
Seong Dong-hyun wore the LG uniform with the 7th overall pick in the 1st round in the 2018 rookie draft. His down payment is 150 million won. In the first year of his debut, he appeared in only one game in the first team, but he was lucky to become a winning pitcher after throwing ⅓ innings. After returning from military service, Seong Dong-hyun dreams of entering the first team with a fastball. He went up to 154 km in the second group last year.
A resource that LG general manager Cha Myung-seok was also keeping an eye on. I introduced it through the club’s YouTube. Last April, when fans asked for a promising player, Sung Dong-hyun’s name was brought up. At the time, general manager Cha said, “I went to watch the 2nd team game, and the velocity came up to 154 km. Now I am in charge of the finish. I am watching to see if I can gain control while continuing to take speed. He continued to throw 149 to 154 km,” raising expectations. showed
Although he was unable to appear on the first team stage last year, he caught the attention of the new head coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop, and was named on the spring camp list. Seong Dong-hyun, who built up his body steadily at the camp, made a mark in his first practice match.
Director Yeom applauded, saying, “It seems that Seong Dong-hyun’s pitch came up faster than I thought.”
The appearance of a fastball pitcher is always welcome. However, one point in his control is jagged. Expectations are high that Sung Dong-hyun will be able to overcome this and emerge as a secret weapon in the first team. 먹튀검증
