“Have faith in the fast ball” Hanwha coach Subero’s order, Kim Seo-hyun, for the time being, maintenance of pitches in the 2nd group

It comes up by stepping on the growth stage steadily.

It seems that it will be difficult to see Hanwha Eagles ‘high school rookie’ Kim Seo-hyeon (19) in the first team for the time being. After refining his pitch and gaining experience in the Future Steam (2nd team), he joins the 1st team.

Coach Carlos Subero said on the 5th, “I think it would be better to help Kim Seo-hyun stay in the 2nd team for a certain period of time. He is the last player to go down to the 2nd team. The possibility of joining the 1st team is open, but it is not too late to come up after growing up.” did.

1 overall pick in the 2023 draft. Kim Seo-hyun, who received attention for her fastball approaching 160 km/h, was not included in the opening entry for the first team. He prepared for the season in the first team camp and played in exhibition games, then went down to the second team. The coaching staff decided that it would be better to spend enough time in the future team to improve the pitch.

Kim Seo-hyun made her first mound in the Futures League (second team) game on the 4th. Against the SSG Landers, he pitched one scoreless inning. He finished the game without conceding, but his content was not neat. He faced 5 batters, giving up 1 walk and 1 walk while striking out 2.

He said that his fastball came out up to 152 km. Coach Subero said, “I threw a lot while testing the two-pitch curveball. I sent out runners in my own style and solved it myself. You can think of it as part of the growth process.”

Appeared in 5 exhibition games and gave up 2 runs in 5 innings (1 earned). He threw a fastball with a top speed of 158 km/h and posted an ERA of 1.80 in 3 holds. Based on his record, I think he could use it in the first team, but his pitches were jagged. He overpowered the batter with a powerful pitch, but when the ball was not caught, he gave up 4 balls and threw a wild pitch.

In the last demonstration game against the Samsung Lions on March 28, he even conceded a run by pushing out with a walk and two dunes. When runners go out, he doesn’t keep them in check. He was lacking in many aspects to be utilized in the first team. 메이저놀이터

Coach Subero said, “There are four-seam and two-seam that are difficult to hit even if thrown into the middle of the strike zone, but I don’t think I have faith in fast balls yet. I have to learn these things in Seosan. He threw similarly. The day he believes in his first pitch, the fastball, he will be able to fully bloom in the professional world.”

Kim Seo-hyun said she wanted to become the best closer like Hanwha legend Koo Dae-sung. The closer we get to this dream, the brighter the future of Hanwha.
