Did you say goodbye to the aftereffects of elbow surgery? Young-gun, who was responsible for one axis of the bullpen last year, is preparing to return to the first team.

Lotte Giants Kim Do-kyu (25) is a member of the 81mm Mortar Corps representing Lotte along with Jung Hoon and Ko Seung-min.

It was the madang iron that supported the Lotte bullpen last season. He took the mound whenever the team needed it, from the pursuit group to the bridge and victory group. He pitched mostly one inning, but was also responsible for multiple innings if the starter was substituted early or went into overtime. The power pitcher, which is the main weapon, is a fastball with a maximum speed of 150 km, which is thrown down from a height of 1m92.

In 55 games, he recorded 4 wins, 4 losses, 3 saves and 8 holds, and an average ERA of 3.71, which was good. However, he was responsible for a total of 22 games and 18 innings in 11 games in August and September, raising concerns from fans. In particular, he suffered from elbow pain in September and his speed dropped sharply. Eventually, after the end of the season, he underwent surgery to remove bone fragments, and after about four months of rehabilitation, he returned to the first team.

It was included in the opening entry, but it was still not easy with a fastball of less than 140 km. In the end, on April 15th, it was expunged from the first group.

He is improving his physical condition at Futures. He appeared in a total of 7 games, digested 11 innings, and is spreading a salty pitch with an average ERA of 0.82. In particular, in the match against the NC Dinos 2nd team on the 4th, he showed signs of recovery, recording a maximum fastball of 143km and an average of 141km. He commented that the slider and forkball have improved.

Even in the midst of sluggish starters, Lotte is continuing its good performance thanks to the performance of Seung-min Kim Won-joong, Kim Jin-wook, Kim Sang-soo, Choi Jun-yong, and Koo Seung-min. Pitching coach Bae Young-soo’s sweaty assignments stood out, but he still managed to complete a lot of innings during his 9-game winning streak. There are not a few positive effects that can be obtained from the reinforcement of one Kim Do-gyu. 메이저놀이터

In addition, Jin Seung-hyeon, the son of Jin Gap-yong, is also pitching in actual combat. Jin Seung-hyun is a rookie pitcher wearing a Lotte uniform for the second round in 2021. He also started before NC on the 4th and pitched well with 3 scoreless innings. His highest fastball speed was 142km. He is posting an earned run average of 1.80 in 3 appearances and 5 innings for the Futures this year.

I watched catcher until elementary school, but turned to pitcher according to the advice of the legend father, ‘don’t be a catcher’. During his time at Gyeongbuk High School, he was a high-level pitcher who added a slider and changeup to a powerful fastball that went over 150km. He is a pitcher who is recognized for his potential.
