ERA 13.50→1.42… Are you the same pitcher? It’s not just the restraints + restrictions… 


I wonder if the pitcher is the same스포츠토토.

KIA Tigers’ second-year left-hander Choi Ji-min (20)’s progress this season is surprising. In 15 games and 19 innings, the average ERA is 1.42. Not a single home run was allowed, and the batting average was 2.38. The WHIP (on-base percentage per inning) is also 1.11. He gave up six walks but struck out eight. On the 16th, against Daegu Samsung, in the bottom of the 6th inning, where the team trailed 1-2, Sean Anderson, the starter, blocked 1⅓ innings with 2 hits, 4 walks, 1 strikeout, and no runs, and even won his first career victory.

Choi Ji-min, who joined KIA in the 2nd round of the 2022 rookie draft, raised great expectations with his courageous pitching in last year’s spring camp and practice game. He confidently attacked the strike zone and struck out every inning, which led to his entry into the opening roster. However, at the end of the exhibition game, the shaking control was a problem. Choi Ji-min bowed his head in relief pitching at the opening game, getting hit with 3 hits (1 home run), 2 walks (1 walk) and 5 runs in 1 inning. A week later, he was on the mound again, but he was soon sent to the Futures (Division 2). He went through readjustment for nearly a month and stood on the mound for the first team again, but his control problem did not improve. In the end, he spent most of his time with the Futures after giving up 3 hits and 2 runs without catching a single out count against Kiwoom on June 10. His debut season performance was a 13.50 earned run average without a win or loss in 6 games and 6 innings.

After the season, KIA dispatched Choi Ji-min to Geelong Korea, an Australian professional baseball team. Choi Ji-min, the only KIA pitcher to wear a Geelong Korea uniform, was active as a winning team, recording 17 games, 18⅓ innings, 3 holds and 2 saves, and an average ERA of 1.47. While he gave up 8 walks, he managed to relive his early season flair as he struck out 19. He spent most of the second half of the season with the Futures and went through a readjustment period at the pitching academy operated by the KIA. This performance, which seemed like a temporary effect, continued as it was in the spring camp and practice-exhibition game earlier this year, and is showing results with the performance of the first team stage.

KIA coach Kim Jong-guk said of Choi Ji-min, “He has improved his speed and control, but the most noticeable thing is his confidence.” He praised, “No matter how good his speed and control are, if he does not have faith and confidence in his ball, he cannot pitch 100%. Choi Ji-min has improved greatly in that respect this year.” He said, “I want him to throw without regret on the mound without dwelling on the result like he is now.”
