Lotte’s other line was tied to 1 point with a fastball that came out less than 140 km.
On the 20th, NC canceled ‘local ace’ Gu Chang-mo from the first team entry. It wasn’t because of the injury. It was to give you a break. For Koo Chang-mo, who has had many injuries, it is an absolute task to somehow complete the full-time season.
Left-handed pitcher Seong-Young Choi took the place of Chang-Mo Koo. Choi Seong-young fought hard with 5 hits and 1 run in 5 innings in the match against Lotte in the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 24th, and NC won 3-1, winning the second win of the season.
Choi Seong-young, who won his first start this season, vomited his spirit to record a starter win 1018 days after the KIA game in Gwangju on August 9, 2020.
On this day, Seongyoung Choi threw 97 balls. He had an exact 1-to-1 ratio with 42 fastballs and 42 changeups. His highest fastball velocity was 141 km. His lowest speed was also 123km. Most of them formed the second half of 130 km.
Of course, there were also downsides. He seems to have pitched insecurely while allowing only 5 walks. After the game, Choi Seong-young said, “Since there are many batters in one shot at Lotte, I think I continued to pitch hard by myself. I should have been a little more aggressive, but it’s a pity. (Park) Se-hyuk hyung also said, ‘Let’s continue to be aggressive.’ I think there was a little pressure,” he said.
In the NC, Koo Chang-mo will also return after a break, and foreign pitcher Taylor Widener is also scheduled to start against Hanwha in Changwon on the 28th after finishing his pitching schedule in the Futures League. If they return, it may be difficult for Choi Seong-young to be guaranteed a spot in the starting lineup.
However,먹튀검증 Choi Seong-young promised to do his best in the given role, saying, “Even if I don’t start, even if I go to the midfielder, I just go on the mound and do my best.” He asked him how he would like to spend the 2023 season. Then, a simple answer came back from him: “He wants to be a player who can help the team as safely as he does now.” If he continues his current activity, it is clear that he will become an indispensable presence on the NC mound.
