Hanwha Eagles’ young gun duo Moon Dong-ju and Kim Seo-hyun are in the spotlight as they throw 150km speedballs. It’s not just Moon Dong-ju and Kim Seo-hyun. NC’s ‘special rookie’ Shin Young-woo also predicted the birth of a big rookie by spraying a 150km range light speed ball in the self-evaluation match.
On the 25th (local time), in the self-evaluation match held at Annex Field in Reed Park, Tucson, Arizona, USA, Shin Young-woo climbed the mound as the third pitcher in the 4th inning following Blue Team starter Song Myeong-ki and Lee Yong-jun, recording 1 inning, 2 hits, 1 walk and 1 run. A total of 17 pitches. He went up to 154 km with a fastball.
Shin Young-woo is a pitcher nominated by NC in the first round of the 2023 draft. He played an active role as the ace of Gyeongnam High School and led the team to victory in the Golden Lion Flag last year.
His main weapon is a fast ball with a maximum speed of 154 km and a knuckle curve. Shin Young-woo pitched in 11 games (50⅔innings) in his senior year of high school last year and recorded 3 wins, 1 loss, 2.47 ERA, 28 hits, 1 home run, 31 walks, 12 strikeouts, and 85 strikeouts. He is a pitcher that is attracting attention among new pitchers this year, along with Hanwha Kim Seo-hyun and KIA Yoon Young-cheol.
Manager Kang In-kwon said of Shin Young-woo, “First of all, he has a fast speed. He has an advantage in breaking balls and a good type of curve. I’m looking forward to being a player who will take over the axis.” 메이저사이트
Outstanding rookies are attracting attention even before the start of spring camp, and NC Shin Young-woo is also likely to become a secret weapon. Director Kang In-kwon also said, “There is a variable in the Asian Games in September, so we have to prepare for that part. It is a part to decide at the end of the camp whether to start with the futures or the first team with new pitchers in the starting list.”
Shin Young-woo, who maintained a weight of 80-81 kg in high school, increased it to 85-86 kg through systematic weight training. “I feel like I’ve gained strength myself because I’ve gained muscle mass, not fat,” he said. “I think he feels better when he throws the ball.”
Shin Young-woo expressed his desire to play a part in the starting rotation. He said, “He doesn’t seem to get tired even though he throws a lot of balls. I want to become the starting pitcher the team needs by making good use of his strengths while increasing his velocity and making up for his weaknesses.”
In the self-evaluation match, Shin Young-woo properly announced his name with a fast ball of 154 km. As the protagonist of the rookie blast this season, he is unmatched
