Jang Jae-young (21) is a promising player that Kiwoom Heroes cherish. He is an ‘unfinished hopeful’ who throws fastballs in the mid-150 km/h range without hesitation.

The process of adaptation has not been smooth. In the 2021 season, his first professional year, he had no win, 1 loss, and an earned run average (ERA) of 9.17 in 19 games, followed by a disappointing ERA of 7.71 without a win or loss in 14 games last year. This season, he is showing signs of showing potential with 1 win, 3 losses and ERA of 5.01 in 17 games (13 starts), but his control ability, allowing 43 walks (6.5 per 9 innings) in 59.1 innings, is still unstable.토토사이트

The more walks allowed, the higher the probability of conceding. Jang Jae-young also collapsed at the beginning of the season, conceding runs due to anxiety over the ball. However, his recent trend is a bit different. He marked an ERA of 4.50 (22 innings, 11 earned runs) by digesting 5 or more innings, including two quality starts (QS, pitching 6 or more starting innings and 3 earned runs or less) in the last 4 games. He gave up 5 walks in each of the last 2 games, but he endured with minimal runs. Director Hong Won-ki Kiwoom also paid attention to this appearance.

Coach Hong said before the Gocheok Doosan Bears game on the 24th, “(Jang) Jae-young this year, the number of wins is not important. He has to focus on how he continues to change,” he said. He welcomed that the fact that it does not collapse at once even after passing 100 pitches is a little different from before.”

Jaeyoung Jang is obviously an attractive fireballer. However, if he doesn’t get the ball he wants, it’s hard for him to survive no matter how powerful he throws the ball. This is why reducing walks is his long-cherished business. Coach Hong also said, “You have to reduce the number of walks.” The process is really important. It takes a lot of patience before one great starting pitcher is born.”
