Stronger on the brink of losing a point… Kim Taek-yeon, an 18-year-old armed with a back-to-back pitching

Kim Taek-yeon, a high school graduate rookie pitcher of Doosan, who is still only 18 years old, is in charge of the team’s iron wall bullpen by showing good pitching every day.메이저사이트

He is showing off his stronger solver ability in crisis situations with bold pitches that are not like rookies.

Reporter Yang Si-chang met us.

In the seventh inning, spectators cheered when Kim Taek-yeon appeared in a one-out third base crisis.


The score is 1 to 1.

Kim Taek-yeon struck out Choi Jeong, the home run batter, after a full count match,

Even Heredia, who ranks first in batting average this season, is out of the crisis by catching a fly ball to right field.

This is not all.

In the previous game, the team protected the victory with three balls in the crisis of first and second bases with one out in the eighth inning when the team was chased by two points.

He currently has 2 wins, 1 saves and 3 holds, with an ERA of just 1.90.

In particular, this month, he has continued to pitch with an ERA of 0.75 while blocking 10 out of 11 games he has pitched.

What’s more surprising is the spirit of a matchmaker who is stronger in times of crisis.

The hit rate is lower when there is no runner than when there is no runner, and it is only 10% in the scoring position.

Even when the runner was at second or third base, he struck out five, and none of the hits were hit.

A bold pitch that I can’t believe is a rookie just out of high school.

After going through trial and error in the first three games of the season, the experience of going to the second team for 10 days became a medicine.
