This year marks the 7th year of debut. A natural shoulder that can go 150km even when thrown with a sidearm.
and a swaying ball. Can Lotte Giants’ “sore finger” Yoon Seong-bin (24) stretch?
The Lotte team’s Guam spring camp is also nearing its end. Yoon Seong-bin, who has been focusing on bullpen pitching, appeared on live pitching for the first time on the 14th and dealt with batters. He threw 25 pitches alone. The maximum speed is 145km.
In his debut season, he appeared in 18 games (starting 10) and played 50⅔ innings, leaving a strong impression. He caught the attention of Busan baseball fans with a fastball of up to 155km and a splitter and slider that were equally fast. He was all the more attractive because he was tall, one of the tallest among baseball players, and had an orthodox pitching form that puts him down from the top.
He also shares the reason why his pitching balance is not good. Since then, he has not been seen in the first team for a long time with the reputation that he is ‘uneasy’. He threw ⅓ innings in 2019 and 1 inning in 2021, which is all he has shown in the first team.
Yoon Seong-bin boarded a plane to Guam this year with the strong support of pitching coach Bae Young-soo.
It stands up well to the brutal conditioning of training coach Kim Hyun-wook. He has a model-type body that is slim and toned. The way he runs and flies with his long legs makes him look like a track and field athlete. 메이저놀이터
Will this year be different? It’s still too early. This is the stage of balancing by throwing only fastballs without breaking balls. It is a pitching form in which the left arm is stretched out to aim as if to keep the batter in check, and then the right arm is swung with force as if to bounce the right half of the body. Like the batting form of Japanese legend hitter Ichiro, the arm that stretches toward the hitter beyond 18.44m is impressive.
“The current pitching form is the position that can put the most strikes. Rather than what I taught, (Yoon) Sungbin chose the most comfortable form himself after trying this and that. It’s a name, isn’t it a national prospect?”
The pitch of the fastball itself is enormous. Coach Bae emphasized, “(Yoon) Seongbin should look at him as he is without stereotypes. If he has prejudices, there is no answer. If he has a good pitch, he should go as he is.”
As much as they undergo harsh physical training, Lotte pitchers are not obsessed with speed. Concentrate on throwing all your might in a state of natural exhaustion.
Still, I am satisfied with the appearance at the Guam camp. He also received a passing grade in the practice of throwing a strike called the ‘Bae Young-soo Challenge’.
“If you throw 3 strikes with all your strength right now, you said that you would give me a chance even if I had to take off my clothes. If it didn’t work, I wouldn’t use it, but he did it again. Equity is important in competition. He also gave me homework to say, ‘Come.’ But he got to the level himself. There’s nothing I can do about it. I’ll take responsibility for it, so he told me to follow him. How heavy is that?
