There was a reason to praise the command tower… ‘2R rookie’ starter → 2 innings scoreless pitching

 Song Young-jin, who was praised by SSG Landers coach Kim Won-hyeong during the spring camp, played well in the demonstration game.

SSG won 4-2 in a face-to-face confrontation with the Lotte Giants in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League demonstration game held at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 15th.

SSG’s starting pitcher was “rookie” Song Young-jin. Song Young-jin was nominated by SSG with the 15th overall in the 2nd round of the 2023 KBO Rookie Draft. He showed his potential by participating in both the 1st spring camp held in Vero Beach, Florida, USA and the 2nd camp held in Okinawa, Japan.

Coach Won-hyeong Kim praised the young pitchers on the last day of the Okinawa camp. He said, “Now young players throw the ball with confidence. Rowoon, Youngjin, (Yoon) Taehyun, and (Baek) Seung-gun continued to show good performance.” He may get a chance this season.”

Next, coach Kim Won-hyung said, “If young players start as a bullpen pitcher during the demonstration game, they will participate in 5-6 games even if they throw 1 inning each.” There will be worries about it, but I focus on my skills. If I throw overwhelmingly well, I will participate.”

Regarding Song Young-jin, coach Kim Won-hyung said, “Young-jin has self-control. He throws a ball from the mound and immediately grabs the zero point. I’ve seen him since I was in Daejeon High School, and it felt good to be on our team.” I did, but seeing it in person, I am competitive. I think I can do something on the mound. The attitude of training is also very good.”

Song Young-jin pitched against Lotte as a starting pitcher, not as a bullpen pitcher. He gave up no runs in two innings, giving up one hit and striking out one. He didn’t start well. In the bottom of the first inning, he allowed a double to lead batter ‘rookie’ Min-seok Kim. Following this, he became 1 out and 3 base with An Chi-Hong’s true base.먹튀검증 He was on the verge of conceding a run from the beginning, but he overcame the crisis by striking out Seung-Min Ko and handling Jun-Woo Jeon as a floating ball in right field.

Song Young-jin threw three balls in a row in a confrontation with lead batter Jeong Hoon at the end of the second inning and was put on a disadvantageous count. However, he put it in the strike zone with a four-seam fastball and a slider, led to a full count game, and handled it with a shortstop ground ball. At the beginning of the demonstration game, Yoo Kang-nam, who had a good sense of hitting, was caught on a foul fly by the catcher, and after blocking Lee Ho-yeon with a ground ball out by second baseman, he handed the baton to Baek Seung-gun.

Song Young-jin showed confident pitching from the first appearance of his demonstration game. As director Kim Won-hyung said, it is a competitive look. It’s still only one match, but if you continue to show this kind of performance, you can enter the 1st team entry enough.
