The biggest concern of Hanwha Eagles Young Gun Kim Seo-hyun (19) is ‘increased walks’.
There are 7 walks in the last 4 games. That’s quite a figure for him considering he’s only been out for three innings.메이저놀이터
In June, this phenomenon became more pronounced. He recorded 3 walks in ⅓ innings against Kiwoom Heroes on the 1st, and also played 1⅓ innings against Samsung Lions on the 4th, allowing 3 walks and 1 ball.
Seohyun Kim’s main weapon is a ‘fastball’ that can reach 160km. He is competitive enough with a fast ball. However, in recent games, the proportion of breaking balls has increased noticeably.
Hanwha coach Choi Won-ho diagnosed the cause of Kim Seo-hyun’s sluggishness, saying, “I was thinking a lot on the mound because I was trying not to hit.
At the same time, he added, “He ordered an increase in the rate of fastballs, but the effect was not noticeable. He intends to make him find a balance by reducing his thoughts and throwing them in a simple way, as the psychological factor is large in his recent sluggishness.
Director Choi said, “Originally, it is correct to throw the ball as the pitcher thinks. Only the pitcher has a feeling. But that is only when he is throwing well. If the result is bad, he thinks a lot and the result is not good. The problem is that there are more balls than ball combinations, so throwing it simply is the priority,” he explained.
I also decided to keep my pitching form constant.
Director Choi said, “The key is to maintain a consistent pitch. After talking with him, he said that the balance is good when throwing with the arm lowered. So, for the time being, I decided to throw only one form.”
Director Choi added, “Isn’t he a pitcher with a really good pitch? It’s not easy for opponent hitters to hit Seo-Hyun Kim repeatedly. If you think less and throw lightly, it will lead to good results.”
