SSG Landers 2nd year sidearm Yoon Tae-hyeon (20) is recovering his confidence little by little through appearances in the Futures League.
After graduating from Incheon High School, Yoon Tae-hyun, who joined the team after receiving the first nomination in 2022, started in the 2023 KBO Futures League game against the LG Twins held at LG Champions Park on the 7th, throwing 3 hits, 2 strikeouts, and no runs in 3⅓ innings.
He threw 61 pitches against 15 batters. After the game, the club said, “I threw according to the number of pitches 60,” and “showed good pitching.”
Yoon Tae-hyun experienced three games in the first team last year. This year, he also raised a lot of expectations during the 1st camp in Florida, USA and the 2nd camp in Okinawa, Japan. At the end of the camp, coach Kim Won-hyung regarded the growth of young players, including Yoon Tae-hyun, as the best achievement.
Director Kim said, “I saw that there was a lot of potential.” Then, he repeatedly praised, saying, “If you do it like now, Yoon Tae-hyun, Lee Row-un, and Song Young-jin are all doing well.” During the camp, Yoon Tae-hyeon received good reviews as the pitch release was formed in the front, such as inducing a ground ball with a fastball with a sinking movement.
I didn’t make it to the opening entry. However, “There is no need to be intimidated by the fact that we did not start in the first team. On the contrary, it is a better opportunity,” said veteran pitcher Noh Kyung-eun. Still, his confidence was a little low. The feeling during the American camp did not hold up well.
It seems that he has regained his confidence through this appearance in the Futures League with LG. It was his first appearance. Yoon Tae-hyun said, “Actually, my confidence was low, but on this day, pitching gave me an opportunity to regain confidence.”
Looking at the long term, he is a pitcher who is expected to take on an axis of the SSG mound. The reason why I received the first nomination was because the evaluation was so good, and it means that I have a future. Of course, if you neglect your efforts, the results cannot follow, but now you are in your second year as a pro. 온라인카지노
Growing through trial and error. Yoon Tae-hyun said, “I tried the splitter that I practiced for pitching that day, and it seemed to be effective. I will try to throw my ball with confidence in the Futures League in the future.”
Coach Kim said that players in the 2nd team can also throw in the 1st team whenever they are ready. The pitching entry changes a lot over the course of 144 games. If Yoon Tae-hyun prepares well and has confidence, he will be given a chance.
Yoon Tae-hyun was scheduled to be included in the opening entry last year, but he started the season in the Futures League as his condition deteriorated due to Corona 19 right before the opening. That is, it is getting a lot of attention.
This year, it remains to be seen how well he will prepare and achieve the desired results, and whether he will be able to show the growth that the coaching staff and club want.
