“Uh, are you okay?”… ‘Ace weapon’ that overcame trauma, this is why it is not a waste of 15.2 billion won

“You have to throw something else to come alive.”

Kwak Bin (24, Doosan Bears) recorded 2 hits, 10 strikeouts and no runs in 7 innings in a home game against the NC Dinos held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 4th.

Although the batting line did not explode until the 7th inning and did not capture victory, Kwak Bin was meaningful in that he cut the tape for the first time since the WBC (World Baseball Classic) without any aftereffects.

Kwak Bin evenly mixed curves (24), change-ups (18) and sliders (10), including a fastball of up to 152km. It was the changeup that worked well with the heavy fastball. Irrespective of the left and right batters, I mixed up one or two changeups evenly, stealing the opponent’s timing. Previously, his changeup ratio was as low as 8%, and he rarely threw it against right-handed hitters. However, on this day, the changeup usage rate was 19.1%, and the right-handed hitter also maintained 10%.

It was also another harvest of going to the WBC with Yang Eui-ji. Kwak Bin worked with Yang Eui-ji in 2018. However, Yang Eui-ji obtained FA status after the 2018 season and signed a four-year contract with NC for a total of 12.5 billion won.

Yang Eui-ji obtained FA qualification again after the end of last season, signed a 4+2 year total of 15.2 billion won with Doosan, and came to his ‘parent’.

Both Kwak Bin and Yang Eui-ji were selected for the WBC national team. I didn’t have time to work together for a long time in spring camp, but I was able to spend time together while preparing for the national team game.

Kwak Bin said, “I didn’t throw the changeup to the right-handed hitter. I was worried that the hitter would get hit if the ball went missing.” So I threw it out and it worked better than I thought, so now I am using it with confidence.”

Yang Eui-ji also knew that Kwak Bin was afraid of the right-handed hitter’s changeup. Yang Eui-ji said, “The WBC told me to throw it. They told me, ‘If you throw it, your other things can come to life.'” 먹튀검증

Cub also found more confidence. Last year, the rate of using curves was 11%, but that day, the rate of using curves was about 25%. Kwak Bin smiled, saying, “I didn’t throw the curve because it didn’t go well before,” and “There were a lot of curve signs today, but I was confident, so I kept throwing it.

As Kwak Bin tied the NC lineup perfectly, coach Lee applauded, saying, “It was like a national team member.” Yang Eui-ui also expected, “I believe he is a player representing our country in the future. I believe he will grow well.”

Kwak Bin said, “I don’t know if it’s just one game yet. I think I’ll have to keep checking after the first half, the second half, and until the end of the season.”
