From last place to winning team… Ho-sol Yun, who became an LG man, has a sense of crisis “There is no guaranteed position”

Right-handed pitcher Yun Ho-sol (29), who has been with Hanwha, the lowest-ranked team for three consecutive years, is preparing to become a member of LG’s mighty bullpen this year. Yun Ho-sol’s greed for a higher goal also grew. 

On the 26th of last month (hereafter Korean time),카지노사이트 Yun Ho-sol made a relief mound as the 4th pitcher in the 5th inning in a practice game against the Netherlands World Baseball Classic (WBC) national team held at Salt River Field at Talking Stick in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA, and pitched 1 inning. It was blocked with 1 hit, 1 walk, 1 strikeout and no run. 

There was a crisis with 1 out and 1st and 2nd base due to hits and walks, but active major leaguer Jonathan Scoop (Detroit) handled a fly ball in right field, and Dashenko Ricardo struck out on 3 pitches looking to end the inning without conceding a run. He successfully completed his first actual game at LG, throwing a mixture of sliders and curveballs (more than 1) with a focus on fastballs (15). 

Yun Ho-sol said, “The camp is going well as planned. He tried to use his strength, so his pitches came and went a little, but the overall balance was fine.” Even during the season, I don’t care about the name value even if I look at the opponent’s left and right hand types.” 

Yun Ho-sol was called by LG as a compensation player for Chae Eun-seong, who moved to Hanwha as a free agent after last year’s season. Although he did not make it to Hanwha’s 20-man protected list, he wore a striped uniform as he was valued for his immediate power in LG’s bullpen, which was aiming for a championship. For three consecutive years, the affiliation has changed from the 10th place team to the championship candidate team, and along with the environmental change, Yun Ho-sol is also feeling a sense of crisis. 

He played well with the bullpen during his Hanwha days and was guaranteed a spot in the first team for two years, but in LG, which is looking to win, he needs to show his competitiveness with better results. To this end, Yun Ho-sol said, “I am focusing on improving the perfection of the slider and splitter with the breaking ball. If you don’t do that, there’s no guarantee you’ll get a spot at LG.”

He also said, “LG ​​is a team with strong pitching power. If I do well in the middle, the team will be better. Since the pitchers behind him are all good, synergy can be created. Because it is a team that looks above, I am more greedy,” he said. “The director nominated me and came to LG. When we first met, the coach said something like, ‘Just think about one inning’. Just like what the coach said in the media, I want to do better so that I can live up to expectations. If I do better, it will be a plus to my baseball life.” 

Before the Hanwha players from their parent team moved on to the 2nd spring camp in Okinawa, Japan, they met briefly for a meal in Arizona. Yun Ho-sol said, “I can’t help but think about facing Hanwha since the real fight starts now. I think it will be fun,” he expected. LG and Hanwha are scheduled to play the first three games of the season in Daejeon on April 21-23 without practice or demonstration games.
