Hanwha Moon Dong-joo returns after just 10 days off, “Rotation rate and control have fallen”

Director Choi Won-ho, “The process of building the body was insufficient.”

Hanwha Eagles' next-generation ace Moon Dong-ju (20), who was downgraded to the second team due to extreme lack of ball control, returns after reorganizing for just 10 days.

Hanwha coach Choi Won-ho said ahead of the 2024 professional baseball home game against SSG Landers held at Hanwha Life Eagles Park in Daejeon on the 30th, "Due to the judgment that Moon Dong-ju's condition has recently declined, we have decided to skip one starting pitching schedule."

Moon Dong-ju performed poorly against KT Wiz on the 23rd, allowing 7 hits, 2 walks, and 5 runs (4 earned runs) with 1 out on balls in 4⅔ innings, and against the Doosan Bears on the 28th, he gave up 9 runs, giving up 10 hits and 3 home runs in 3⅓ innings. .

The fastball velocity was not bad, but the control was the problem. In particular, curveballs and sliders were hit hard as they were concentrated in the middle.

In the end, Hanwha deleted Moon Dong-ju from the first team entry on the 29th, a rest day.

Coach Choi Won-ho said, "When looking at the data, the RPM of the fastball decreased compared to last year and the control ability decreased. I started preparing for this season a little later than other players, but I lacked the build-up process to prepare my body as I was preparing for the national team. “I think I did it,” he said. 슬롯사이트

In addition, he said, “If the control is unstable at the beginning of the game, there is a tendency for the ball to be pushed to the center more and more,” and “We will improve this area over the next 10 days.”

A replacement selection has not been decided. Coach Choi Won-ho said, “I will decide after thinking about whether to call him from the second team or appoint an opener pitcher.”

Hanwha has been on a downward trend recently as starting pitcher Kim Min-woo left due to an elbow injury and Moon Dong-ju also suffered from problems with his pitch control.

It is also painful to see starting shortstop Ha Joo-seok missing due to a ruptured left hamstring (the muscle behind the thigh) and catcher Choi Jae-hoon missing due to side pain.

Coach Choi Won-ho said, “Ha Joo-seok has not yet started training,” and “it is difficult to predict when he will return.”

Additionally, regarding Choi Jae-hoon, he said, “I plan to call him up after he plays in the second team for about a day or two.”

Hanwha, which was in first place at the beginning of the season but recently fell to 8th place, is aiming to turn things around this day with the 'return of the Korean monster' Ryu Hyun-jin.

Hanwha selected Lee Do-yoon, who has good defensive skills, as the starting second baseman for Ryu Hyun-jin, who is good at inducing ground balls. 토토사이트 순위

Coach Won-ho Choi said, “This is a decision to stabilize the infield defense.”

In addition, Coach Choi Won-ho commented on Ryu Hyun-jin's recent complaint about the Automatic Pitching System (ABS), saying, "Players have no choice but to adjust accordingly," and added, "If you pay too much attention to ABS, it may have the opposite effect, so you have to accept it to a certain extent and work hard to achieve good performance." “This will come out,” he added. 안전 토토사이트
