‘Cry’. It is a nickname given to a pitcher who suffers from bad luck to the point of wanting to cry because he is not supported by the other line even though he has pitched well.
Samsung Lions foreign pitcher Albert Suarez is a prime example. Suarez recorded an average ERA of 2.49 in 30 appearances last year, but posted only 6 wins (8 losses). It’s because the batting line couldn’t help him win. Fans called Suarez ‘Sucrai’.
In Kiwoom Heroes, An Woo-jin has not been able to build a multiplier this season because he has not received help from other players. Ahn Woo-jin played 7 games this season and recorded 6 quality starts (6 innings or more, 3 ERA), but only 2 wins (2 losses).토토사이트
It seems that a new ‘cry’ will be born in Kiwoom, even with one Woojin Ahn. It is pitcher Jeong Chan-heon (33). Jeong Chan-heon was selected as an alternative starter when Jang Jae-young, the 5th starter, was notified that he was going to the 2nd team due to sluggish performance, and started on the stage of the 1st team from the 5th.
Entrusting Jeong Chan-heon to the 5th selection was a great success. Jeong Chan-heon pitched 6 innings and 1 run against SSG on the 5th, and in his second appearance against LG on the 11th, he also pitched 6 innings and 1 run, meeting the expectations of the command tower. However, even though he pitched well, he suffered two losses. It’s because the other line didn’t even score 1 point.
Chan-Heon Jeong has been quick to catch hitters with his two-seam fastball, his main weapon in his last two games. He threw just 62 pitches in 6 innings in the last 5 games. In the last 11 days, he threw a total of 86 pitches, including two-seam (42 pitches), a curveball (25 pitches), slider (10 pitches) and fork (9 pitches). His two-seam top speed was 140 km/h.
Jeong Chan-heon showed a stable appearance twice, and the calculation stood in the Kiwoom starting lineup. 1st starter An Woo-jin, who is the strongest in the league, 2nd starter Eric Yokishi who is struggling with 3 wins and an ERA of 2.93, 4th starter Choi Won-tae who recorded 4 quality starts in 7 games following Ariel Furado with 3 wins (3 losses) and 2.81 ERA. It is evaluated as being stable up to Here, the 5th starter Jeong Chan-heon, who started as an alternative starter, played a better-than-expected fight, strengthening the Kiwoom starting lineup.
However, even the best starting lineup in the league is useless without the help of the other lineup. Kiwoom has found the perfect 5th starter, but it is in danger of becoming ‘cry’.
