Will KBO league aces Kwang-Hyun Kim and Hyeon-Jong Yang really play as middle pitchers in the WBC?
Yang Hyeon-jong, who had his first bullpen pitching at Kino Sports Complex in Tucson, Arizona on the 19th (Korean time), met with reporters and said, “Director Lee Kang-cheol told me to prepare because I could go out in the middle from December of last year. He mentioned the possibility of changing positions, saying, “Because I have to play a big role in this tournament along with Kim Gwang-hyun and Lee Yong-chan, I am always ready whether it is a starter or a bullpen.”
Lee Kang-cheol, coach of the Korean national baseball team, is concerned about the starting pitcher for the four WBC group stage matches. He included numerous starting resources such as So-Jun So, Tae-in Won, Se-Woong Park, Bin Kwak, Young-Pyo Ko, Gwang-Hyun Kim, Hyeon-Jong Yang, and Chang-Mo Koo in the entry, but he has not been able to decide which pitcher to send to which game. In particular, he is struggling over the mound strategy against Australia and rival Japan, his most important first game.
Kim Gwang-hyun and Yang Hyeon-jong, the one-two punchers of the national team’s mound, have not yet decided on their positions. 메이저사이트 Regarding the positions of the two players, coach Lee recently said, “Because they have a lot of experience, we are also considering a plan to put them in at important moments.”
The position of ‘Kwang Hyeon-jong’ is expected to be finalized through the remaining four Arizona evaluation matches. Lee Kang-cheol will play practice games with KIA on the 20th, KT on the 23rd and 25th, and LG on the 27th. When he finishes the match against KT on the 25th, it seems that the outline of the starting lineup will be revealed to some extent.
