KT coach Lee Kang-cheol said to Yuk Cheong-myeong, who is about to make his first start, “show potential”

Right-handed pitcher Yuk Cheong-myeong (18), who graduated from Gangneung High School and joined KT Wiz prior to this season, will stand on the mound as a starting pitcher for the first time.

Yuk Cheong-myeong will appear as a starting pitcher in the professional baseball Kiwoom Heroes game to be held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 17th.

Yuk Cheong-myeong, who had been the ace player since his second year at Gangneung High School, was mentioned as a candidate for the first round, but was pushed to the second round due to the aftermath of elbow surgery in his third year. 온라인카지노

KT selected Yuk Cheong-myeong as the 17th overall pick in the second round in the 2024 season KBO rookie draft held last year.

Yuk Cheong-myeong, who used to throw up to 150 kilometers per hour at his best, is gradually recovering his velocity.

On the 13th, against SSG Landers, he appeared in the 9th inning and went 1 inning, allowing 1 hit, 2 walks, and no runs, and successfully completed his first team debut.

Ahead of this day’s game, KT coach Lee Kang-cheol said, “Yook Cheong-myeong is a player who received training as a starting pitcher in the 2nd team.

I hope he gets a spot (in the starting lineup).

“Rather than not giving a point and saying, ‘I hope I can show my potential by saying, ‘If I can do this, I can see more (in the first team),’” he said.

“Rather than expecting a long throw, the priority is to show the ability to fight against opposing hitters.”

Coach Lee said, “I think we need to keep an eye on him because there is talk that his pitch drops after about 50 throws,” and added, “If we see it, we will change it.”

If he continues to show like that, he can be used as a middle pitcher for now.

Won Sang-hyun also shows the same behavior (his pitching status decreases as the number of pitches increases), and both players can be used as middle players.

He explained, “I’m still young, so I can go back to the starting position at any time.”
