‘Fireballer’ Jang Jae-young joins the starting lineup? still to test

Can Kiwoom Heroes Jang Jae-young (21) join the starting rotation?

Kiwoom coach Hong Won-ki mentioned the possibility of Jang Jae-young joining the starting lineup ahead of an exhibition game against the Samsung Lions held at Gocheok Sky Dome on the 23rd. The command tower said, “A decision has been made to some extent. Jang Jae-young showed up when he had a bad game against the Hanwha Eagles. We have to see how he will do in the next appearance.”

Jang Jae-young’s talent is outstanding. He throws a fastball that exceeds 150 km. Jang Jae-young, who has been known since his Whimungo days, joined the Heroes in 2021 as the first nomination. However, he showed a lack of control, and he has not been able to show much performance over the past two years.

No matter how fast his ball is, he is useless if he cannot throw it where he wants. Jang Jae-young also tried to catch the ball in the Futures League. Even last winter, he threw the ball without a break. Although it is off-season, Jang Jae-young played in the Australian League as a member of Geelong Korea. He returned after refining his control, and predicted an active performance in the first team.

Nevertheless, it is difficult to give certain trust with the way Jang Jae-young showed in the demonstration game. On the 13th, against KT Wiz, he recorded 2 innings, 2 walks, 3 strikeouts, and no runs, and on the 19th, against Hanwha, he recorded 1 hit, 4 hits, and 1 run in 3 innings. The highest speed of his fastball was recorded at 152 km. He still threw a fast ball before the season opener. However, concerns about his control could not be dispelled.

First of all, the command tower intends to give Jang Jae-young a chance. Director Hong said, “Jae-young Jang is going through the process of taking his place. The things he planned are going well,” but also said, “I’m thinking of several ideas.메이저사이트 It’s a process of narrowing down the plan,” and expected Jae-young Jang’s rebound.

Jang Jae-young is a candidate for the 5th starter. Kiwoom built a solid mound by adding foreign duo such as Ahn Woo-jin, Eric Yokishi, and Ariel Hurado, who have established themselves as the league’s leading aces, and Choi Won-tae. It depicts Jang Jae-young supporting them behind them. Everything is possible when Jang Jae-young shows a sense of stability on the mound.
