‘FA non-contract’ Jeong Chan-heon seeks a comeback with Seongnam Magpies, an independent baseball team

“I will raise the sense of the game with actual pitching… KBO League return strike”

 Pitcher Jeong Chan-heon (33), who has yet to find a team despite the opening of the new season, plays for an independent baseball team. The plan is to seek out his return to the KBO league after raising his sense of practice.

On the 17th, an official from Jeong Chan-heon’s side said, “Jung Chan-heon plans to join Seongnam Magpais to improve his pitching skills.”메이저사이트

Seongnam Magpais is led by Shin Gyeong-shik, a former star player. Coach Shin served as the LG Twins coach from 2013 to 2020, and the relationship accumulated at this time served as an opportunity.

Along with Kang Ri-ho, Jeong Chan-heon, one of the two players who failed to sign a contract in the FA market, has been working hard to build his body. He started working out with Kim Jae-woong, a junior at Kiwoom, and joined the Hongik University Suncheon camp in February to do live pitching and weight training.

Later, from the beginning of March, he joined the Seongnam Magpais Gangneung Camp and started pitching in practice.

An official from Jeong Chan-heon’s side explained, “The Magpies are very considerate.” “When the season opens on the 21st, there will be 2-3 games a week, and Chan-heon Jeong plans to pitch once a week.”

Although he signed with an independent league, there is still room for a return to the KBO League. If a team with insufficient pitching staff appears during the season, it will be able to show interest in Jeong Chan-heon, and it is calculated that in order to do so, he must prepare himself well in advance.

Jeong Chan-heon, who joined LG as the 1st overall pick in the 2nd round in 2008, was traded during the 2021 season and set up a new nest in Kiwoom. Last year, he went 5-6 with a 5.36 earned run average in 87⅓ innings in 20 games.
