Jang Jae-young [SS Gocheok-in], the last button of the starting lineup that has not been filled, still needs a process


Guwi is a limited express. His pitching was also better than last season. But it still seems like it needs more time. As a left-handed hitter, he had no clear location other than his body, and his breaking ball was not stable. Kiwoom Jang Jae-young (21)


finished his first appearance this season without hitting the last button in the starting lineup.

Jang Jae-young threw 82 balls against Gocheok LG on the 6th, giving up 3 runs with 4 hits, 4 hits, 5 strikeouts and 3 runs in 4 innings. As the record shows, the 4th ball was the problem. The number of pitches increased with walks, and he faced a crisis. He recorded a maximum speed of 155 km, but there were as many balls as strikes. In addition to his fastball, he also threw a curveball and a slider, which he looked out of control.

Pitching balance is good. However, the release point is not constant. When the ball is hit, the height fluctuates and the ball comes out of the strike zone. There are times when he throws a fastball, throws a breaking ball, and then throws a fastball again, losing the release point. It is a part that needs to be mastered through training and practice.

All of Kiwoom’s starting pitchers played five or more innings before the game. From Woo-Jin An in the opening game, Eric Yokishi, Ariel Hurado, and Won-Tae Choi to the 4 starters, everyone has completed their duties. Only Jang Jae-young failed to complete 5 innings, and Kim Dong-hyuk got on the mound in the top of the 5th inning.

There is no need to rush. He is still young and has many games to play in the future. Kiwoom coach Hong Won-ki said, “I know that many people are interested in Jang Jae-young. There will be a lot of articles,” he said, “I will not judge only by the results of today’s game. If I can’t throw today, there will be no change.” It means that he will continue to give Jang Jae-young experience as a starting pitcher.

Still, if Jang Jae-young is active, his team’s power will greatly improve. When the Jang Jae-young project succeeds, Kiwoom builds the league’s strongest starting lineup. We also prepare Jeong Chan-heon and Lee Seung-ho cards just in case, but Jang Jae-young’s growth can be a shortcut to victory.
