“I want to throw as a starter” Hanwha Kim Seo-hyun’s mindset change, ‘160km’ one-two punch possible with Moon Dong-ju

There is a modifier that appears when describing Hanwha Eagles first-year high school pitcher Kim Seo-hyeon (19). Like Moon Dong-ju (20), who joined last year, “super rookies” follow him around. It is an environment and condition that cannot but attract attention. He is the first pick overall rookie this season. He thrilled Korean baseball with his fiery fastball approaching 160 km/h.

He started the season in the second team after getting ragged in exhibition games. Kim Seo-hyun made his first appearance in the first team game on the 19th. He got on the mound in the 7th inning against the Doosan Bears and he pitched 1 inning, 2 strikeouts and no runs. In his debut game, he threw 158 km/h and made a strong impact. He scored 2 runs in 1 inning against the LG Twins on the 22nd (visa book), and digested 2 innings in the game on the 23rd.

In 3 games, 4 innings, 4 hits, 1 walk, 6 strikeouts, 3 runs (1 ERA), 2.25 ERA.

Kim Seo-hyun, who met at Sajik Baseball Stadium in Busan on the 25th, said, “While I was in Futures (2nd division), I made a promise not to rush. He continued to watch the pitching video and thought about what was the problem and what to supplement.” Manager Carlos Subero ordered that he not throw a breaking ball before two strikes. He was there to instill confidence in his powerful fastball.

Kim Seo-hyun became a hot topic in an interview last fall when she said, “I want to become the best finishing pitcher like senior Koo Dae-sung.” The best prospect was unusually aspiring for a finisher rather than a starter. He usually pitched short innings hard during his Seoul High School days.안전놀이터

My thoughts changed after experiencing the pro. Kim Seo-hyun said, “I like the middle pitch and finish, but I want to throw as a starter when the opportunity arises. It’s difficult to be a starter while finishing, but I knew that I could throw as a reliever with enough experience as a starter.” There was advice from senior pitchers.

There is no reason for a 19-year-old ‘super rookie’ to limit his role to a specific position. It was because of team circumstances that he threw mainly in the middle and finish in high school.

Kim Seo-hyun said, “I was called up to the first team on the 19th, and that day I was scheduled to start the Futures League game and throw 3 innings.” He pitched two innings in two of his five Futures League games.

Nothing has been decided yet, but I think we will see starting pitcher Kim Seo-hyun at some point. The ‘one-two punch’ was born by throwing a fastball at 160 km/h with Moon Dong-ju.

Everyone pays attention to and cheers for the fastball, but Kim Seo-hyun said she was not very interested in speed. He has fully experienced that control is more important than speed. He said, “I think I put a lot of energy into the demonstration game because I wanted to show something.”
