There is no shortage of 1st and 2nd starters.”
Kim Do-young (20, KIA) finished the Gwangju Hanwha match on the 27th and made a mature comment that was not like a second year pro. I sincerely respected and acknowledged Moon Dong-joo (20, Hanwha), a partner and rival of ‘Moon Kim Daejeon’, as a partner in the industry. He didn’t want their confrontation to be highlighted.메이저사이트
Kim Do-yeong and Moon Dong-joo, the ‘special top prospects’ born in Gwangju, had two pitching matchups in Gwangju on the 6th and 27th and called General Meng-gun. In the game on the 6th, Moon Dong-ju won by decision with 3 at-bats, no hits and 1 walk, while in the game on the 27th, Kim Do-young won by decision with 3 at-bats, 1 hit and 1 walk.
Regardless of the win or loss, it was an eye-opening match. Moon Dong-ju, who mixes a mid-150 km fastball with a 140 km slider and a 120 km curve, and Kim Do-young, who is capable of foul cuts and straight hits with both fastballs and breaking balls. He definitely possesses the best talent of his age.
Moon Dong-ju had fun using the curve effectively against Kim Do-young in his first confrontation. However, on this day, he gave Kim Do-young a fastball of up to 155 km. On this day, the highest restraint came in a face-to-face confrontation with Kim Do-young. Kim Do-young only produced a batted ball that was eaten by Moon Dong-joo’s fast ball, but in the third matchup, he pushed a 152km fastball and connected it to a hit, winning a clear decision. In the second at-bat, he persistently fouled a 154-155km fastball, picked out a slider and a curveball, and got a walk.
However, Kim Do-young acknowledged Moon Dong-ju. I thought she’d talk fast balls, but she mentioned sliders, which she threw 12 on the day. He said, “Dongju’s slider was very sharp. It is not easy to aim and hit.” In fact, Moon Dong-joo’s slider has a decent fastball speed. It is untouchable as long as it is at a level where it can use strikes and balls freely.
Even Kim Do-young said, “The part that Dong-ju likes better than when he was a high school student is catching the count (strike) quickly. You have to think about it and respond to it. That’s why it’s hard to hit.” Also, “Even in high school, the fastball was fast, but the breaking ball was also very good. He got less attention because of his fastball, but he knew his breaking ball was good.”
Moon Dong-ju started as a 5th starter, but he became a 3rd starter at some point. It is true that Hanwha’s 4th and 5th starters are weak, and it is also true that Moon Dong-joo is better than the 5th starter of any team. 8-8 with an ERA of 3.62 in 22 games. There is no pitcher who shows this level of performance among all the 2nd year of 10 clubs. An Woo-jin (Hanwha) was also unable to do so in his second year. This is why Kim Doyoung’s remarks should be viewed as genuine respect, not 100% lip service.
In the future, some predict that Dong-ju Moon will be better than Woo-jin Ahn if he reduces the ups and downs of his breaking ball and improves his game management skills. Then you will become a real Hanwha ace. I need time, and I’m still having a good time.
Such Moon Dong-ju ends this season with a game against LG in Jamsil on the 2nd of next month. He pitched 114⅓ innings, as he was approaching the 120 inning limit set prior to the season. Afterwards, he plans to prepare for the Hangzhou Asian Games to be held in October through rest and condition management. In the Rookie of the Year race, they were at a disadvantage because they could no longer score points, but Hanwha looked far ahead and chose Silly.
