Hanwha Eagles right-hander Han 꽁머니지급 Seung-hyuk started against the Kiwoom Heroes on the 25th and came down without completing three innings. It was bad from the beginning. In the bottom of the first inning, he hit three hits and gave up the first run. He was replaced after allowing three four outs in the third inning and allowing two runs due to faltering ball control.
The record alone is as good as failing. However, there is something to consider. After reorganizing the Futures League, he changed his position to a starting pitcher, and he started in 27 days. It was his first start since throwing three innings against the KT Wiz on June 28.
Head coach Choi Won-ho looked back on the game the day before on the 26th and said, “Han Seung-hyuk was bad yesterday, but he didn’t have too many chances to take the mound. It would have been difficult to maintain his absence from the starting lineup for nearly a month. “It’s hard to evaluate it based on yesterday’s game,” he said. Coach Choi said Han Seung-hyuk will start against SSG Landers on the 30th according to the starting rotation.
Han Seung-hyuk has not had a chance to take the mound since late June due to rain cancellations. During this period, Hanwha focused on three main starters: Felix Peña, Ricardo Sanchez, and Moon Dong-joo.
There is another similar case.
This is Kim Seo-hyun, who is in the starting class in the Futures League. He started against the Goyang Heroes on the 25th and allowed eight hits and five runs (four earned runs) in 4⅔ innings.
Coach Choi said, “I received a report that my speed was lower and my condition was worse than the previous game. “It must have been difficult because it’s been a long time since he took the mound,” he said.
Kim Seo-hyun pitched five hits and one run in 5⅔ innings against the Heroes on the 6th. Even after 90 pitches, he was in good condition, throwing a fastball in the 150km/h range. He took the mound 19 days after the game. The game scheduled to take the mound was repeatedly canceled due to rain, resulting in a long gap.
