Kiwoom Jang Jae-young is scheduled to become the first fielder to be registered in the first team against Hanwha on the 20th.

Kiwoom Jang Jae-young is about to make his first-team debut as a batsman.

Professional baseball Kiwoom Heroes outfielder Jang Jae-young (22) will step onto the first team stage for the first time since becoming a fielder.

Kiwoom Club plans to register Jang Jae-young in the first team in time for the Cheongju Hanwha Eagles match on the 20th.

Jang Jae-young, who joined Kiwoom in 2021 with a contract payment of 900 million won, the second-highest in professional baseball history, was expected to be a fastball prospect who throws a ball in the mid-150 km/h range.

However, due to the inability to resolve the chronic problem of ball control, he was left as a first-team pitcher for three seasons until last year with 56 games, 1 win, 6 losses, 103⅓ innings, 100 strikeouts, 97 walks, and an average ERA of 6.45.

Ahead of this season, he spent the opening game in the second team due to an elbow injury, and in his return to the Futures (second team) league on the 1st of last month, he faced three batters and allowed only two walks and one hit to the body before leaving the mound.

The examination I received immediately afterward revealed that I needed ligament reconstruction (Tommy John) surgery due to ligament damage in my right elbow. 메이저사이트

After much consideration, Jang Jae-young gave up his dream of becoming a pitcher and chose to become a fielder.

Jang Jae-young, who has shown talent as a batsman since his days at Deoksu High School, showed his talent by hitting 5 home runs in 19 games of the Futures (2nd team) league after converting to a batsman.

Kiwoom decided to call Jang Jae-young, who hit three home runs in the last four games of the Futures League, to the first team to check his skills.

‘Batter’ Jang Jae-young’s Futures League performance in 19 games is a batting average of 0.232 (16 hits in 69 at-bats), a home run, and 13 RBIs.

Although he struck out 26 times because his pitching plan has not yet been refined, his ability to hit long shots is considered excellent.

Jang Jae-young is a fielder and has no experience playing in first-team games, and only appeared twice in exhibition games last year, recording no hits in three at-bats. 온라인 슬롯
