I left for Australia right after digesting the finish camp in full. The word ‘off-season’ is almost colorless.

Seo Jun-won of the Lotte Giants is training himself tirelessly. He wants to regain his former reputation and glory, which was called the best pitcher in high school.

Seo Jun-won headed to Australia on the 1st of last month after finishing camp, and started climbing the mound two days later. It is in contrast to his junior Kim Jin-wook (21), who moved to Australia on the 9th of the same month and took the mound at the end of the year after spending about 20 days managing his condition.

Appeared in 7 Australian League games and digested 19⅔ innings, recording an average ERA of 4.58 with 1 win and 2 losses. He started out mainly as a bullpen in the beginning, but switched to a starter from the end of the year. He is producing satisfactory results with 2 runs in 6 innings and 2 runs in 5 innings. 메이저놀이터

The first priority is to find confidence and take control of yourself. Bring a variety of pitching forms. In particular, he is focusing on balancing his pitching in a situation where his arm is lowered and his fastball speed is lowered to less than 140km. I succeeded in dieting and became slimmer, and my body became more flexible.

New attempts such as breaking away from the monotonous pattern of fastball-slider and focusing on curveballs and changeups are also outstanding. Control has become more stable. Bae Young-soo, pitching coach, laughed, saying, “I checked the Geelong Korea game diligently (even during the term of service).”

“(Seo) Jun-won was instructed to ‘Try a lot of things, and find out what’s really yours’ among them. I think he’s doing well.”

Seo Jun-won is also the bullpen longman and first-choice substitute pitcher this season. Together with Kim Jin-wook, he is a young gun pitcher who carries the future of Lotte. If the 4th and 5th starting lines between Lee In-bok and Na Kyun-ahn are shaken, they should be prepared to start immediately.

Married at the young age of 21, he became the father of a baby last year. He has been away from home for an extended period of time. His head may be complicated, but he is focused only on baseball with the support of his wife.

Coach Bae emphasized, “Seo Jun-won has a strong will to do it and has a clear goal. He is working hard and looking forward to the next year.”
