KIA Tigers rookie pitcher Yoon Young-chul (19)토토사이트 will finally start.
KIA played the second game of the season against Kiwoom Heroes at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 15th. In the first leg of the season the previous day (14th), they lost 2-9.
On this day, KIA will start with Yoon Young-chul, a rookie left-hander who graduated from Chungam High School. Coach Kim Jong-kook explained the reason for dropping Yun Young-cheol as the 5th starter at the Media Day held before the season opening, saying, “The performances he showed from the camp to the demonstration game are good enough.”
On the 8th, Yoon Young-chul prepared for his first-team debut in the Futures League. At that time, he pitched 9 hits, 5 strikeouts, 3 walks and 3 runs in 6 innings in a game with the Samsung 2nd Army. Attention is focusing on whether Yoon Young-cheol will be able to make his debut against Kiwoom and even win the starting match.
One of the concerns is whether the confrontation between Chungam High School’s ‘friends’ will be successful. Kiwoom also has a rookie at Chungam High School. The main character is Kim Dong-heon, who is taking his place in the first team as a backup for veteran catcher Lee Ji-young.
Kim Dong-heon is recording a batting average of 40% in 7 games with the 1st team until the 14th. Although the sample is still small, it shows promise.
However, there is little possibility of a starter on this day by wearing a starting catcher mask in the first game the day before. Moreover, yesterday he was silent with no hits in 3 at-bats.
However, foreign ace Eric Yokishi, who reported his first victory of the season the previous day, expressed his gratitude to catcher Kim Dong-heon. Yokishi said, “I threw as Kim Dong-heon led. He sometimes asked for the ball I wanted, but the catcher’s lead was great. He is a rookie, but I think he is a player with good qualities in defense, throwing and hitting.”
Yun Young-cheol and Kim Dong-heon were the players who led the golden age of Chungam High School. In the youth national team, he also served as an ace and a center hitter, respectively.
Yun Young-chul, who is starting for the first time, and Kim Dong-heon, who is consistently playing with two starts and backup replacements. Attention is focusing on whether the two players will be able to face each other.
