Doosan’s strategic analysis team. Doosan’s next ace, Kwak Bin (24), has a tremendous pace. A smile appears on the face of WBC coach Lee Kang-cheol.
On the second day of spring camp held at Blacktown International Sports Park in Sydney, Australia on the 2nd, Kwak Bin began pitching in the bullpen.
Kwak Bin started his professional life after receiving the first nomination from Doosan in the 2018 rookie draft. However, in the first season of his debut, he did not perform as well as expected. He had a rough debut season with a 7.55 ERA in 32 games, 3 wins, 1 loss, 1 save and 4 holds.
Bad news also overlapped. Kwak Bin even underwent elbow surgery after a year of joining the club. After returning to the mound for the 2021 season after his long rehabilitation, Kwak Bin began to establish himself as a starter, recording 4 wins and 7 losses with an ERA of 4.10 in 21 games.
And in the second half of last year, I completely opened my eyes. He had an average ERA of 4.43 with 3 wins and 7 losses in 16 games in the first half, but finally burst into his potential with 5 wins and 2 losses with an ERA of 2.98 in 11 games in the second half. 스포츠토토

Nevertheless, Kwak Bin threw a heavy ball up to 146 km. He threw 30, all of which were fastballs
. Not 100 points. He tried to keep his body in good shape during the off-season. I’m trying to keep myself in good shape in March.”
The catcher who received Kwak Bin’s ball that day was Yang Eui-ji. It’s been a long time since he was a rookie. Do.
_ The fact that he accepted my ball made me nervous. When I was a rookie, I threw without knowing anything, but now I know a little bit, so I thought a lot that I should show it, so I threw a few,” he smiled.
