Was it director Lee Seung-yeop’s failure? Was it an unavoidable outcome?
Doosan canceled Kim Yu-seong from the first team ahead of the game against LG in Jamsil on the 5th. On the 4th, Kim Yu-seong pitched for relief at the Hanwha Games in Jamsil, giving up 5 runs on 3 hits and 5 walks in 1 inning. The number of pitches was 51. Controversy arose over the timing of coach Lee Seung-yeop’s introduction of Kim Yu-seong and the timing of his replacement.
Kim Yoo-seong is a pitcher 메이저사이트who has been a hot topic since high school with the ‘academic violence issue’. He dropped out of Korea University, wore a Doosan uniform through the rookie draft, and jumped into the professional league in earnest this year. Compared to players of the same age, Kim Yu-seong’s pitch and future were dominantly evaluated as one of the best in the world.
Coach Lee Seung-yeop also believes that Kim Yu-seong can work well in the first team. The industry predicts that Kim Yu-seong will show competitiveness enough to occupy a starting position in the long term. For this reason, Doosan needs to systematically manage and nurture Kim Yu-seong. While resolving the actual school violence issue, an environment was created in which he could focus only on baseball.
He was registered in the first team on April 27, and on the 28th, he successfully completed his debut match against Incheon SSG with 1 inning, 1 strikeout, 2 walks and no runs. Coach Lee Seung-yeop later said in Incheon, “It is a pitch that can be used in the first team. Now, you have to watch whether the location is where you want and where the catcher demands.” At the same time, he said, “Now that the Pilseung group is built, I want to send it out in a comfortable state. Ultimately, you have to take charge of the selection.”
In that respect, it was only natural that the reaction to the timing of the match against Hanwha in Jamsil on the 4th and the timing of replacement was not good. In the top of the 5th inning, behind 2-3, Kim Yoo-seong took the mound as the second pitcher after starting pitcher Dylan Pyle at 1st and 2nd base. With Kim Yu-sung conceding a large number of runs, the economy shifted to Hanwha.
The situation of falling behind by one point in the 5th inning was not the time for Pil Seung-jo to leave. However, it was not the comfortable situation that director Lee said. It wasn’t because the game was over. Moreover, since there was a runner in the scoring position, Kim Yoo-seong was able to receive press.
If it was difficult for Dylan to lead long innings because he made his first-team debut, there would have been a pitcher prepared in advance. According to director Lee’s interview with the media on this day, Kim Yu-seong was warming up beforehand. However, as a result, it is true that the replacement time was delayed. He had to throw a whopping 51 pitches to digest one inning. loser.
It was a brutal home debut for Yuseong Kim. 1 loss in 2 games, average ERA of 22.50. That’s how Kim Yoo-seong goes down to the 2nd team and has time to reorganize. It seems that May 4th will be the day when director Lee Seung-yeop and Kim Yu-seong think a lot.
