‘ERA 3.09 → 10.38’ SSG’s 24-year-old right-hander’s ordeal… Command’s order, “Don’t be afraid”

It was smooth sailing throughout the season. Director Kim Won-hyung said, “It’s noticeable because it’s not there.” He was having a good season, but then a ‘trial’ hit. Due to poor performance, the team is heading to Futures. I have to come back quickly. This is the story of Choi Min-jun (24).

Choi Min-jun is recording 40 games, 43.2 innings, 4 wins, 3 losses, 6 holds, 1 save, and an ERA of 4.53 this season. He has 26 strikeouts and 16 walks. His hitting percentage is somewhat high at 0.305.

The first half was good. He pitched 29 games and 35 innings, going 4 wins, 2 losses, 6 holds, 1 save, and an ERA of 3.09. The hitting percentage is 0.269. He struck out 21 and walked 12.토토사이트

It slowed down in the second half. He has 8.2 innings pitched in 11 games, one loss, and an ERA of 10.38. He has a bad ratio with 5 strikeouts and -4 walks, and his hitting percentage is also high at 0.425. He has an OPS of 1.127.

There was also one injury. He was placed on the injured list on June 24 with an adductor injury. Returned to the first team on August 6th. Things haven’t been good since his return.

In particular, in his last two games, against Kiwoom on August 30th and August 31st, he gave up 4 runs in 0 innings and 2 runs in 0 innings. In the end, he was dropped from the first team on September 1st. He decided that reorganization was necessary. He can return on the 11th at the earliest. However, he doesn’t know yet whether he will upload it right away.

Manager Kim Won-hyung said, “The bullpen is a little tired,” and “Noh Kyung-eun and Ko Hyo-jun are also getting older, and Choi Min-jun has also lost his pitch. There is something Choi Min-jun needs to do. There were injuries, but I think a change of pace was needed more than that. “I will check the situation after 10 days,” he said.

It is difficult because the cause is not known. “I do not know the reason. “I didn’t throw that much, but I think I lost confidence.”

He continued, “It seems like he’s afraid of walks. I hope he throws a lot of strikes. The position also fell. Even if you are not in good condition, you should not throw away pitching. That kind of baseball is not allowed. “If things are bad, we have to fight with determination,” he emphasized.

There is something I showed last year. He finished with 51 games, 68.1 innings, 5 wins, 5 losses, 5 holds, and an earned run average of 3.95. Even when he missed this season due to injury, coach Kim Won-hyung said, “It is a pity that Choi Min-jun is not here. It’s obvious. He also expressed regret, saying, “He is a much-needed pitcher.”

Unfortunately, when I came back, I was underperforming. Although it cannot be said that it was entirely because of Choi Min-jun, SSG also performed poorly in the month of August with 10 wins and 13 losses. The second place, which seemed solid, was also lost to KT.

Choi Min-jun needs to gain strength again. Only then will there be a rebound for SSG. The season isn’t over yet. First of all, he showed a good performance against Goyang in the Futures League on the 3rd, striking out 2 and allowing no runs in 1 inning. He just needs to get fit and come back.
