Shin Young-woo, a top-notch prospect of the NC Dinos, showed off a good pitch in the Futures (second team) league.
Shin Young-woo started the match against the Samsung Lions Future Team held at Masan Baseball Stadium on the 24th.
Shin Young-woo, who was nominated by NC with the 4th overall in the 1st round in the 2023 rookie draft, is a right-handed pitcher whose strengths are a fastball that goes well over 150km and a breaking ball that changes greatly. Recognized for this potential, he also built up his body during the first team spring camp during the off-season.
Shin Young-woo, who has not yet made his first-team debut, has been active in the Futures League until recently. In the beginning, he showed weakness in his pitching and collapsed, but on the 14th, he showed good pitching after pitching well with 1 hit, 3 walks, 8 strikeouts and no runs in 7 innings against the KIA Tigers.
From the beginning of the game, Shin Young-woo showed off his good condition. In the top of the first inning, he led lead batter Lee Seong-gyu to a fly to left field. He gave up four pitches to follow-up batter Kim Dong-jin, but ended the inning by striking out Yang Woo-hyun and Kim Ho-jae, respectively, and putting the shortstop to sleep with a ground ball. At the beginning of the second inning, Oh Hyun-seok was struck out and Kim Sang-min was given four balls, but Jo Min-seong and Ryu Seung-min were struck out consecutively.
The fighting continued in the top of the third inning. Lee Seong-gyu, Kim Dong-jin, and Lee Byung-hun all struck out and made the first tripartite inning of the day.
At the beginning of the 4th inning, his crisis management skills stood out. After he struck out Yang Woo-hyeon, he committed a sand dune to Kim Ho-jae. Afterwards, Oh Hyun-seok induced the second baseman with a straight hit, but Kim Sang-min again hit the ball and was driven to the 2nd, 1st and 2nd bases. But he didn’t break down. He ended the inning by catching the runner on second base as a checker.
Even in the top of the 5th inning, Shin Young-woo, who came up to the mound, struck out lead batter Lee Seong-gyu. Afterwards, he allowed Cho Min-seong to go on base with a knockout, but finished his mission that day by striking out Seung-min Ryu and Byung-hun Lee, respectively, and tying fly to center fielder.
His final performance was 5 innings, no hits, 4 walks, 11 strikeouts and no runs. His total throw count was 89, and his highest velocity was measured at 153 km.
After the game ended with NC’s 12-4 victory, Shin Young-woo said on the official SNS of the NC C Team (Future Steam Team), “I tried to continue the good feeling from the last game (against KIA on the 14th), but I am glad that it happened. My teammates gave a lot of points, so I was able to throw more comfortably,” he said. (Kim) Hyeong-jun believed in him and threw it. I am happy that the decision ball went well where it should go,” he said.
In the meantime, Shin Young-woo has always been pointed out as a weakness. Even in the game that day, the fact that they gave up 4 runs remained in the ok.
He said, “During practice, I talked a lot with the pitching coach and practiced taking the rhythm and balance of his pitching form to a certain level. He was trying to think of a good idea when he wasn’t. I will continue to practice so that I can get a good look.” “In today’s game, there was a ball that was not controlled yet. I will try to show a stable appearance by reducing the number of balls that are not in control.”먹튀검증
Finally, he said, “I will always do my best to finish the responsibilities given to me. I want to say thank you to the seniors and coaches who always take care of me even when things go wrong,” he said. I will work hard so that I can only show a good side of myself to my fans.”
