“Both position and restraint have risen”… Will the left-hander, who was discharged from the military, get a spot in the SSG bullpen?
Baek Seung-gun (SSG Landers) made a strong impression at the spring camp.
Baek Seung-gun was nominated by the SK Wyverns (now SSG) in the first round of the 2019 rookie draft. In his debut season, he gave up 5 runs (5 earned) in 15 games in 19⅓ innings with 14 strikeouts and an earned run average of 2.33. In the 2020 season, he was given a starting pitching opportunity in place of Nick Kingham, who suffered an elbow injury. However, he was sluggish with 5 losses in 10 games (7 starts), 29 ⅓ innings, 29 runs (26 earned) and 28 strikeouts with an earned run average of 7.98.
Baek Seung-gun chose to enlist ahead of the 2021 season. He was finally accepted into the Sangmu Phoenix baseball team. In Sangmu, he recorded an average ERA of 3.46 in 12 games in the 2021 season and an average ERA of 6.33 in 21 games in the 2022 season and was discharged.
Baek Seung-gun, who was named on the SSG spring camp roster, received a passing grade from coach Kim Won-hyung. Coach Won-hyung Kim expressed his satisfaction with the growth of the young pitchers who participated in this camp. Along with Roun Lee, Youngjin Song, and Taehyeon Yoon, Baek Seung-gun was mentioned by name.
Director Kim Won-hyung said, “Now, young players are confidently throwing the ball. Rowoon, Youngjin, (Yoon) Taehyun, and (Baek) Seunggeon continued to show good performance.” If you connect, you might get a chance this season.”
Next, coach Kim Won-hyeong said, “If young players start as a bullpen pitcher during the demonstration game, they will participate in 5 to 6 games even if they throw one inning each.” There will be worries about it, but I focus on my skills. If I throw overwhelmingly well, I will participate.” 토토사이트
Coach Won-hyung Kim served as pitching coach for the Doosan Bears during the 2019 and 2020 seasons. It was the opposing team at the time, but I kept an eye on Baek Seung-gun and there were some regrets. However, he was satisfied with Baek Seung-geon, who made up for his shortcomings in this camp.
Manager Kim Won-hyung said, “Seung-gun also has the ability to throw strikes from the mound.” His fastball has improved, and his speed has also improved.”
‘Key left-hander’ Kim Taek-hyung has enlisted. SSG needs a left-handed reliever to fill his void. This could be an opportunity for Baek Seung-gun. Now it’s a test match. If Baek Seung-gun shows a good performance in the demonstration game, there is a possibility that he will be active in the first team from the opening of this season.
