I didn’t know it was number one (laughs).”
KT Wiz’ bullpen’s best harvest this season is definitely the upgrade of second-year right-handed pitcher Park Young-hyeon (20). Coming from KT’s 1st nomination in 2022, he played an active role as a winning group this year and achieved 3 wins, 3 losses, 3 saves, 26 holds, and an ERA of 3.02 in 56 games until the 23rd.토토사이트
Park Young-hyun plays a decisive role in KT’s high-altitude march in the second half of the year with a fast ball in the mid-to-late 140 km/h range, a sharply bent slider, and various patterns that include a changeup. In a situation where he has to protect the team’s victory, he hits an ‘iron wall’ on the mound in the second half of the game with Son Dong-hyun and Kim Jae-yoon.
Park Young-hyun’s 26 holds is the best record in this category this season. SSG Landers’ Roh Kyung, who is in second place, has a significant gap with Lotte Giants Koo Seung-min’s 19 holds, but he is also on the verge of a 30 hold. KT coach Lee Kang-cheol also expressed surprise at Park Young-hyun’s hold collection procession. Director Lee said, “I didn’t even know until recently that (Park) Young-hyeon was number 1 in the hold. I thought that Noh Kyung-eun kept appearing in the game a lot and was always in first place.”
Coach Lee spared no praise for closer Kim Jae-yoon, who is quietly accumulating saves. Compared to his performance, he also regretted that the number of saves was not high (43 games, 22 saves, ERA 1.29). Director Lee said, “Unlike holds, it is not easy to accumulate numbers in saves. Shouldn’t he just win the game and throw it away? Also, save situations must be created, but this year (Kim) Jae-yoon did not have many save situations.”
