“I think it’s very good for a rookie to be that good.”

That’s what Lotte Giants manager Kim Tae-hyung said about rookie pitcher Jeon Mir (19).

Jeon made his KBO debut on April 24 against the Incheon SSG Landers. Entering the game with the bases loaded in the bottom of the eighth inning with his team trailing 0-5, Jeon gave up a run on a wild pitch and struck out Choi Ji-hoon on a wild pitch. He walked Park Sung-hwan but struck out Choi Jung and Ha Jae-hoon to end the threat. One inning, one walk, three strikeouts. 토토사이트 Although the team gave up a miraculous tying run in the top of the ninth and a walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth, the 19-year-old rookie pitcher’s debut was enough to impress.

“We weren’t trying to make him stronger, but we didn’t have a pitcher to go up, so when a rookie pitcher comes to the mound in a losing situation, we also considered the part where the opponent folds and goes in,” Kim said of Jeon Mir’s first appearance, adding, “I think the rookie did a very good job.” As for the curveball he used for strikes, he said, “It was good before. He’s working the count well with his slider and using (the curve) as a deciding pitch. The angle is good.”

The praise for Storm continued.

“We’ll have to see how he handles himself in bad situations, but he’s got guts on the mound. I think he has a very good mentality right now,” Kim said. “He has more control than in the exhibition games. From a player’s point of view, he could be greedy, but it’s enough for now.” “He’s a player that the manager can envision how to use him. As long as he doesn’t overpitch, it will be good.”

Kim led the Doosan Bears to the Korean Series for seven consecutive years and won three titles. He is known as a ruthless competitor and rarely praises young players, but his gaze toward Jeon Mir is an exception. 파워볼실시간 He was important to Lotte and showed promise with his valuable performances.

On the 26th against Gwangju Kia, Jeon took the mound in place of Koo Seung-min with a one-run deficit and showed great heart to close out the inning. There is new hope for Lotte, which is looking to make a leap forward under Kim.
