LG starting pitcher Son Joo-young fights back

Professional baseball LG Twins manager Yeom Kyung-yeop selected left-handed pitcher Son Ju-young (25) as the ace of the future.

He even praised him as “a player who will be the starting point of the LG dynasty in the future.”

Coach Yeom met with reporters ahead of the visiting game against the Doosan Bears to be held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 1st and said, “Son Joo-young grows every time he plays. His speed is likely to increase in the summer.” 메이저사이트

Son Joo-young, who has occupied a spot in LG’s starting lineup this season, is active with 4 wins, 3 losses, and an average ERA of 3.64 in 11 games.

In the game against Doosan in Jamsil on the 31st of last month, he blocked the opponent’s batting line with 3 hits, 2 walks, 4 strikeouts, and 1 run in 5⅓ innings and led the way to a 6-3 victory, earning his 4th win (3 losses) of the season.

Coach Yeom praised Son Joo-young, saying, “Yesterday (May 31), Son Joo-young pitched without showing any signs of intimidation even in front of a packed crowd,” and added, “His deception (hand-hiding motion when pitching) is very good and his arm angle is high.”

Thanks to these advantages, the fastball pitch shines even more.

Coach Yeom said, “Son Joo-young’s speed is now up to 149 km per hour and an average speed of 145 km per hour. Even at this speed, the timing of the bats is late for batters. There are almost no true hits,” and “The maximum speed is over 150 km per hour. “It will be much more effective if it goes up,” he predicted.

The task is to improve the perfection of breaking balls.

Coach Yeom expected, “If we just throw the forkball perfectly now, the strikeout rate will go up a lot.”

He also continued his praise, saying, “I think he will grow into a candidate for a spot on the left-handed national team. If Son Joo-young grows, it will be the starting point of the ‘LG Dynasty’.”

In the previous day’s game, Son Joo-young was hit by consecutive hits from Henry Ramos and Su-bin Jeong in the 6th inning with a 4-1 lead and was pushed to first and second base with no outs.

The next batting order was right-handed hitter Yang Eui-ji, and instead of replacing the pitcher, the LG bench entrusted Son Joo-young to him.

As a result, Son Joo-young handled Yang Eui-ji with a fly ball to first base and then passed the mound to Kim Jin-seong.

Manager Yeom explained, “It is standard to start the game in the 6th inning and change it when Yang Eui-ji is at bat, but Yang Eui-ji was especially bad at timing Son Ju-young’s deception moves. So I left it to Yang Eui-ji to deal with him.” 온라인 슬롯
