KT Spring Camp, which is being held at Hyundai Motor Dream Ball Park in Gijang, Busan. One of the pitchers that KT coach Lee Kang-chul is looking forward to is Moon Yong-ik, who came as an FA compensator for Kim Jae-yoon, who went to the Samsung Lions.
Moon Yong-ik, who wore a Samsung uniform as 59th in the second round of 6th round in 2017, did not perform very well in Samsung.월카지노주소
Since his debut in the first division in 2021, he has been ordinary with a record of 4 wins, 2 losses, 1 save, 2 holds, 3.35 ERA in 39 games in the 2022 season, 4 wins, 1 save, 4 holds, 3.84 ERA in 14 games in the 2023 season. The Futures record was also 6-4, 7 saves, 5 holds, 5.91 ERA in 84 games.
Nevertheless, not only manager Lee Kang-chul but also players are looking forward to Moon Yong-ik’s performance.
“I’m not sure if I’ll do well or not yet, but it’s the harvest that picked Moon. There is also a breaking ball 150 kilometers away. He throws a curve ball with a big angle. There is no other pitcher who strikes out like this in our team. I’ve caught all of them in sync so far. I’m going to have high expectations for him.”
Veteran catcher Jang Sung-woo also said, “I talked to the coach during the senior manager’s dinner. He gave me special advice. He said, ‘You make Moon Yong-ik on your own. I will raise him.'”
“I feel lighter than I thought. The coach told me how to balance my lower body because I think I only throw my arms,” Moon said with a smile when he met after the training on Sunday morning. “He gave me a lot of compliments on slider. I thought it was normal, but I heard it would be good to analyze it. I will work harder and find a place in the winning team.”
Do they know that everyone is paying attention? Maybe that’s why? Moon Yong-ik intends to repay everyone’s expectations.
“I heard it, but I want to work harder and show you the results,” he said, stressing, “As much as KT picked me, I have a strong desire to do better here. I want to show you the results.”
“I think it’s great to be able to do it with the director. I thought it would be difficult because I could feel his aura from the outside, but when I met him and talked to him, he approached me jokingly with compliments. I’m trying to be comfortable with the director, too,” Moon said. “The director said I lack how to use my lower body and control control skills. I’ll learn a lot about that. I hope he’ll be hard on me.”
“I want to do better at KT. I want to show you the results. I will throw as many games as possible this year. I will make a strong impression on my fans as I can prevent him from playing in one inning,” he said.
