“Now I will watch.”
Doosan Bears manager Lee Seung-yeop mentioned the possibility of using pitcher Kim Yu-seong (21) for the first team. Kim Yoo-seong apologized to the victim of school violence in middle school on the 21st, and as agreed, he said he would see if he could be used in the first team.
Coach Lee said, 스포츠토토“I will watch (Kim Yoo-sung’s pitching) from now on” ahead of the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ kt Wiz match held at Jamsil Stadium on the 22nd.
Yuseong Kim, a graduate of Korea University, participated in the 2023 KBO League rookie draft as an early draft and wore a Doosan uniform with the 19th overall ranking in the second round. He has a 2.77 earned run average with 1 win in 3 games, 13 innings, 9 walks and 16 strikeouts in the Futures League.
He could not easily rise to the first team despite good grades. It is because the issue of school violence became a problem when he was in Naedong Middle School in Gimhae. But now the shackles are about to be lifted. This is because he reached an agreement with the victim and asked for forgiveness for his past wrongdoing and received an apology.
Kim Yoo-seong recorded 3 walks and 4 strikeouts in 3⅓ innings against the LG Twins on the 22nd, which was his recent appearance. He threw 49 pitches, and the highest velocity of his four-seam fastball reached 149 km/h. Little by little he is finding his pitching pace.
Director Lee said, “Kim Yoo-seong’s prerequisite for being able to play in the first team was to solve everything smoothly with the other student. Of course, it’s a burden that I have to carry with me for the rest of my life, but I was forgiven and reconciled, so I think it will be an opportunity to raise my goal one step higher. .The future is important.
He continued, “Today (22nd), I will be playing in the Futures League, and now I will watch it. .
Kim Yu-seong is currently playing as a starter. Since it can be used anywhere in the starter and bullpen, if Kim Yoo-seong joins, the team mound can be energized. Attention is focusing on whether director Lee will use the Kim Yu-seong card and at what point he will take it out.
