SSG Landers, who achieved the first wire-to-wire integrated championship in the history of the KBO League with overwhelming power in the 2022 season (a win that has never come down from first place after the opening), aims for a second consecutive victory. prepare for the new season
The SSG team will hold their first spring camp at the Jackie Robinson Training Complex in Vero Beach, Florida, USA from the 30th to the 26th of February. Afterwards, the second spring camp will be held in Okinawa, Japan from February 28th.
Choi Jeong, Choo Shin-soo, who played a pivotal role in the team last year, and Yasu-jin, who remain in the new ranks of Hanyu Island, Choi Ji-hoon and Park Seong-han, have almost no power loss.
However, the pitching staff has some leaks. There seems to be no problem with the starting lineup, where new foreign players joined national team left-handers Kim Gwang-hyun and Young-gun Oh Won-seok, but there are concerns in the bullpen.
In SSG last year, Kim Taek-hyung, Seo Jin-yong, Noh Kyung-eun, and Moon Seung-won alternately took on the finishing position, but no player gave a clear belief in one inning when evaluated calmly. It was good when all four were good, but there were ups and downs.스포츠토토
Every time there was a crisis, group finishers crossed the threshold and reached the top, but this year, there is no guarantee that the operation of the bee swarm will be effective until the end. The problem of lack of finishing is a task that needs to be solved.
While Noh Kyung-eun and Moon Seung-won are likely to return to their original positions as starters, left-hander Kim Taek-hyung recently enlisted in the Sangmu ranks, loosening the back door.
Kim Taek-hyung made relief appearances in 64 games last year, recording 3 wins, 5 losses, 17 saves and 10 holds with an ERA of 4.92.
In particular, at the time of winning 10 consecutive wins in the opening game, he kept the victory with his pitching spirit in every game, contributing a lot to SSG gaining the strength to break out in the early stages.
In the middle of the season, he had a difficult moment because he couldn’t withstand his physical limitations, but Kim Taek-hyung’s presence was a great help to SSG.
Kim Taek-hyung also showed good form in his first Korean series. He pitched 5 1/3 innings in 5 games and allowed no runs, contributing to the team’s first overall victory.
The enlistment of left-hander Kim Taek-hyung, who has the best slider in the league reaching mid-to-late 140 km/h, is a big loss to the team. It is even more painful for SSG, who has a solid left-handed bullpen, except for Taek-Hyung Kim, and Hyo-Jun Ko.
