Will the two rookie pitchers of SSG Landers, Lee Rowun (19) and Song Youngjin (19), be included in the opening entry? So far, there is a possibility.
SSG drew 5-5 in an exhibition match against KT Wiz held at Suwon KT Wiz Park on the 25th. After conceding first in the bottom of the first inning, he succeeded in reversing, but could not keep the lead.
As it is an exhibition game, we still need to look at the process rather than winning or losing. One thing to note is the bullpen. Among them, there are some players who stand out. These are Lee Rowoon and Song Youngjin, rookies this year. Both players are right-handers.
The two players passed from the 1st camp in Florida, USA to the 2nd camp in Okinawa, Japan this year. During the camp, he showed courageous pitching and a pitch that could be used in the first team.
Coach Won-hyung Kim and the coaching staff saw their potential and kept them until the end of the camp, and they continue to watch them during practice games and demonstration games. So far, I’m happy to see it.
In the game against KT, Song Young-jin took the mound as the second pitcher after starter Park Jong-hoon (4 innings) and pitched 1 run in 1 inning. He conceded a run, but it is a non-earned run. The first batter, Kim Sang-soo, allowed a heavy hit, but after allowing the stolen base, catcher and center fielder threw errors one after another, leading to a run.
After Kim Sang-soo, Kang Baek-ho and Hwang Jae-kyun each caught a ground ball for second baseman and a fly ball for center fielder, and Kim Joon-tae was treated as a fly ball for center fielder, ending the inning without any additional runs. This is also guts. 먹튀검증
Lee Rowun took the mound as the 4th pitcher in the 7th inning and pitched two strikeouts and no runs in one inning. It was his fourth appearance in an exhibition game, and he pitched the best. He seems to have regained his confidence after being full of confidence during the camp.
Before the game, coach Kim said, “(Lee) Rowoon is not getting better results than during the camp. Still, he’s not lacking in confidence. Of course he’ll be more confident if the results are good, but he’s throwing briskly. It is time for him to grow further.” Regarding Song Young-jin, he said, “He continues to throw well,” and “Two newcomers are still together until this point. He continues to show a good figure.”
Regarding the possibility of the two new pitchers’ opening entry, Manager Kim expected that “there is a lot of possibility”.
