Jang Jae-young endured 5 innings even with 5 walks… The command tower is “changing little by little”
Director Hong Won-ki of Kiwoom gave a generous score to Jae-young Jang’s development.
Head coach Hong Won-ki said, ahead of the match against Doosan held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 24th, “Jang Jae-young should focus on how he continues to change rather than how many wins are important.”
Jang Jae-young started against Doosan the day before and recorded 2 hits, 5 walks, 3 strikeouts and 2 runs in 5 innings. He gave up five walks, but did not completely break down.메이저놀이터
Prior to this game, Jang Jae-young recorded two consecutive quality starts. On the 11th, against LG, he recorded 4 hits, 1 home run, 1 walk, 3 strikeouts and 3 runs in 6 innings against LG.
Although Kiwoom lost 4-11 against Doosan the previous day, it was possible to place importance on Jang Jae-young’s development.
Director Hong Won-ki said, “Anyone can give a walk. Ahn Woo-jin can also give it. All pitchers can give it all, but now I am focusing on seeing if there is a change depending on how I react and deal with it,” he said.
Kiwoom, who is actually on the path of rebuilding this season, needs to grow as a starting pitcher. Choi Won-tae was traded to LG, and the team remains at the bottom. Jang Jae-young must grow to raise expectations for the next season.
Coach Hong said, “I think it will take a lot of patience before a great starting pitcher is born.”
Before the match, I met Jang Jae-young and had a separate conversation. Director Hong expressed expectations, saying, “The important thing is whether you know or not, but since you know it well, you will have to check how it will change in the next appearance.”
