There is a pitcher that LG Twins coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop noticed before leaving for the US camp. He is the only rookie to attend this year’s camp.
Director Yeom boarded a plane to the United States via Incheon International Airport on the 27th. While the team is leaving for Arizona, USA on the 30th, manager Yeom left first.
The LG team will camp in Arizona, USA from February 1st to March 6th. Including manager Yeom, 19 coaching staff and 43 players including captain Oh Ji-hwan will participate. The first-team camp consisted of 26 pitchers, 4 catchers, 6 infielders and 7 outfielders.
The only rookie in this camp mentioned by coach Yeom is pitcher Park Myeong-geun (19). Manager Yeom said, “When I was the technical chairman, he was the player I wanted to pick for the national team. At the time, he even made a recommendation to coach Joong-il Ryu of the Asian Games national team, saying, “I can use it as a bullpen pitcher.”
As one of 26 pitchers, Park Myung-geun was given the opportunity to prepare for the 2023 season with his seniors. Director Yeom said, “Basically, control is good. He has a good mentality, and if you look at his throwing, he is a pitcher who knows how to fight.”
Director Yeom said, “The changing ball is not bad either. There aren’t many sidearm pitchers on our team. Therefore, it will be of great use.”
Park Myeong-geun, who was nominated for the round in the 2023 rookie draft after graduating from Raon High School, is not tall at 174 cm, but is a pitcher who throws 150 km/h at the right-handed sidearm.
Director Yeom said, “The ability to deal with left-handed batters may still deteriorate on the professional stage. However, it would be better if equipped with a changeup,” he repeatedly praised, saying, “If it’s okay, you can even enter the opening match.”
Park Myung-geun’s ‘role model’ is Jung Woo-young. Jung Woo-young is LG Pil Seung-jo. He is a sidearm pitcher and throws a fastball that can exceed 150 km/h. In his last season, he went 2-3 with 35 holds and an earned run average of 2.64 in 67 games. 메이저사이트
Jung Woo-young is the best bullpen pitcher with the most holds in the league. While he is preparing for the new season by leaving for the United States as a starter on the 21st, Park Myeong-geun also follows his senior. Attention is focusing on whether Park Myeong-geun will be able to spend a year meeting director Yeom’s expectations.
