Hanwha pitcher Lee Tae-yang (33) continued his scoreless march against his former team, SSG, who won the combined championship.
Taeyang Lee made a relief mound as the 4th pitcher in the 6th inning in an exhibition game against SSG in the 2023 KBO League at Daejeon Hanwha Life Insurance Eagles Park on the 21st, blocking 1 inning with 1 hit, 4 walks, 1 strikeout and no runs.
Lee Tae-yang, who came up with the Hanhwa trailing 0-3, threw the lead hitter Cho Hyeong-woo into right field and struck out Jeon Eui-san with a looking strikeout. After inducing a swing with a forkball, he froze the mountain before with an outside slider. 먹튀검증
After catching two outs, he allowed Choo Shin-soo to hit a double in the middle right and go on base. Choo Shin-soo accurately countered the slider on the inside of the 4th pitch. However, he induced the next batter Choi Ji-hoon to ground to first base and finished the first inning without conceding a run.
16 total pitches, 11 strikes and 5 balls. He focused on adjusting his condition by evenly throwing four types of pitches: fastball (5), slider, forkball (more than 4), and curve (3) with a maximum of 144 km and an average of 143 km.
Taeyang Lee was traded from Hanwha to SK (now SSG) in June 2020 and has been with the team for two and a half years. In particular, last year, he went back and forth between selection and salvation and played an active role with an average ERA of 3.62 with 8 wins, 3 losses and 1 hold in 30 games (112 innings), contributing to SSG’s wire-to-wire victory.
Lee Tae-yang, who obtained FA qualification after the season, left SSG, which was full of salary cap, and returned to Hanwha, his former team, for 4 years and 2.5 billion won. Although he left SSG, Lee Taeyang, who left SSG with good memories of winning, visited the SSG dugout the previous day (20th) before the game and greeted coach Kim Won-hyung and the players.
Taeyang Lee, who is in charge of the Hanwha pitching team and is responsible for the atmosphere, is steadily raising the pace in the demonstration game. Until this day, all 4 games are stable with relief mounds, 4 innings, 2 hits, no walks, 3 strikeouts and no runs.
He is preparing for the season as a relief, but depending on the team situation, an alternative starter is possible. He is expected to become the all-rounder of Hanwha Mound.
