“I’m trying to develop a knuckle curve, etc.” Hold king upgrade, soon to take off the veil

‘2022 Hold King’ Jung Woo-young (23, LG) is expected to return with an upgraded condition and recovery. There is no doubt that the command tower also believes in it.

Sidearm Jung Woo-young uses a two-seam fastball with a speed of 150 km per hour as a weapon. Because he’s quick and changeable, he induces hitters to ground balls. He recorded 35 holds in 67 matches last year and became the hold king. It is the first title holder.메이저놀이터

Thanks to his performance, he was named to the World Baseball Classic (WBC) national team roster.

However, he struggled throughout the tournament, showing a lot of difficulty. Even after returning to the team, he seems to be in poor shape. His weapon doesn’t work well. He is also staying in the mid to late 140km range.

He had an earned run average of 4.50 in 4 exhibition games, giving up 3 runs in 4 innings.

He has not been in the winning group since the regular season. He is acting as a bridge to Pilseungjo.

2 games, 2 innings, 1 hold, ERA 4.50. On the 4th, against Suwon KT, he recorded his first hold.

In a situation where Ko Woo-seok’s comeback has been delayed, the biggest challenge for LG is for Jung Woo-young to quickly find his condition and come back.

Director Yeom Kyung-yeop pointed out, “I’m still in the process of (improving my condition). Everything is lacking. I went to the WBC, so I didn’t have enough training, and I couldn’t raise the number of pitches.”

But I believe it will get back on track quickly. Because you are still working hard. Director Yeom predicted, “He is a player who will do his part. He is also preparing a knuckle curve. You can’t throw only two-seams forever. He will throw a lot of curveballs, and the breaking ball must be varied. We will try several times.”

He also went into pitching form correction. Jung Woo-young’s weakness is his big pitching motion. So he has great quick motion. Because of this, he allowed a whopping 29 stolen bases last year, and his stealing was stopped only once.

Coach Yeom Kyung-yeop said, “I am trying to fix the slide step. It is not the end just because I was the king of hold. There will be a desire to go to the United States, and I have to set a high goal consciousness. The coach and coaching staff make plans and execute them to reach the goal. “You have to do it yourself. You have to keep improving,” he emphasized.
