“I was confident. It’s fun breaking the evaluation, right?”
In other words, it’s not normal. It’s too powerful for a 19-year-old’s mentality. ‘Baby Tiger’ KIA Yoon Young-chul (19) is the main character.먹튀검증
Yoon Young-cheol is 3-2 with an average ERA of 2.89 in 46.2 innings in 9 games this season. It’s amazing just that he’s circling the starting rotation. He has the most innings pitched among rookies. He also has an earned run average of 2 points.
In the match against SSG in Gwangju on the 6th, he also wrote his personal best. He showed off his quality start plus (QS+) pitching with 6 hits, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts and 2 runs in 7 innings. Digested the first 7 innings of his debut. The number of pitches was only 99.
The 2nd overall pick in the 2023 draft. It was called the ‘Big 2’ with Kim Seo-hyun (Hanwha), and KIA embraced it. He naturally had high expectations. He proved his worth through the spring camp practice game-exhibition game. He proudly took the 5th starting spot.
It is not easy for a high school graduate rookie to play an active part in the first team. Before the season, the dominant evaluation was that it would take time. There was also a negative outlook that it would be difficult to survive with a fastball of 130 km/h.
KIA rookie Yoon Young-chul started the 2023 KBO League SSG match held at Gwangju-Kia Champions Field on the 6th and is delighted after ending the inning with a double hit in the top of the 5th inning with 1 company, 1st and 2nd base.
I am breaking this evaluation with my whole body. Yoon Young-cheol said, “I was confident. It was evaluated that it would be difficult around. However, there is another fun that breaks that evaluation. I feel like I’m having fun doing it. I think it’s fortunate that the results came out well,” he said with strength.
Due to the rain cancellation at the beginning of the season, Yun Young-chul’s starting order was delayed, and he made his first appearance on April 15 against Gocheok Kiwoom. He allowed 5 runs in 3.2 innings. He got off to a bad start. On April 21, against Samsung in Gwangju, he made his second appearance, giving up 2 runs in 4.1 innings.
He has been ‘sprinting’ ever since. The worst he threw in 7 games was about 5 innings and 3 runs. KIA’s management is based on 5 innings. He has 1 run in 6 innings and 2 runs in 7 innings once.
Director Kim Jong-guk said, “I have basic management skills. He doesn’t look like a player who just graduated from high school and turned pro. It works, and the command is stable. He’s doing great. However, the 1 run rate and walk-on-base rate are a bit high. He pointed out that he only needs to pass the first inning well.”
Regarding the part entrusted to the 7th inning in the game on the 6th, he said, “I have to throw a long inning to feel something. You will have the confidence to say, ‘With this number of pitches, this amount of innings’. He explained, “I wonder if I should try pitching once even if I exceed 100 pitches.”
He also said, “He had a good number of pitches, and I wanted to make him responsible until the 7th inning. He has a start on Sunday, but he didn’t mind. He blocked well. He goes as it is on Sunday,” he added.
KIA rookie Yoon Young-cheol started and fought against the 2023 KBO League SSG match held at Gwangju-Kia Champions Field on the 6th.
1 inning hit rate 0.368, blood OPS 0.994. Not a good start. Instead, in the second inning, the hit rate is 0.103 and the OPS is 0.360. In the game on the 6th, Ha Jae-hoon hit 2 RBIs in a timely manner in the 1st inning with bases loaded, and as a result, he became a losing pitcher.
Yoon Young-cheol said, “It is impossible not to miss a pitcher’s throw. If he’s going to get hit anyway, he’d better get hit early. He gave up a run in the first inning, but it is fortunate that he was able to play long innings.”
“In the end, if you want to eat a lot of innings, you have to reduce the number of pitches. This is possible only when the number is reduced through aggressive pitching. Yesterday’s discipline wasn’t very good. In the beginning, I couldn’t control my changeup and slider. So he went for the fastball. He also improved his slider and changeup.”
Regarding the part where he first came to the mound in the 7th inning, he said, “Actually, I didn’t think of things like ‘It’s the 7th inning’. I just thought it was the same inning. he was no different. Shouldn’t the bullpen relieve the burden only when the starting pitcher throws long? Starters take a few days off when they throw, but not the bullpen. This is why we need long innings.”
The speed is also improving little by little. On the 6th, it reached a maximum speed of 142 per hour. A situation where the club is not particularly involved. There seems to be plenty of room for improvement. For now, Yoon Young-chul is concentrating on his first ball.
He said, “I throw as usual. However, when he has a favorable count or there are no runners, he exerts more power. At the same time, he thinks that the speed will increase,” he laughed.
