A left-handed pitcher next to a left-handed pitcher. Another left-handed pitcher next to him.
Left-handed pitchers are the trend. The KIA Tigers showed off the grandeur of an overwhelming left-handed pitcher. On the 10th (hereafter Korean time), Kino Sports Complex in Tucson, Arizona, USA, the first team spring camp site of KIA.
Five pitchers stood side by side in the bullpen and pitched in the bullpen. Ace Yang Hyeon-jong threw to the far right, and Lee Eui-ri메이저놀이터, a former Rookie of the Year, was next to him. Next to him, Kim Dae-yu, who came as a compensation player for Park Dong-won, threw. And all of them, including Choi Ji-min and Kim Yu-shin, were left-handed pitchers.
It is a common sight to see right-handed pitchers throwing side by side, but it is not easy to see left-handed pitchers throwing like this.
In the schedule scheduled the day before, Yang Hyeon-jong, Lee Eui-ri, Choi Ji-min, and Jeon Sang-hyun were thrown into Group A, and Kim Yu-shin, Song Hoo-seop, Kim Seung-hyun, and Lee Tae-gyu were placed in Group B. However, the schedule changed that day, and Kim Dae-yu, who was not in the original pitching group, was included, and Kim Yu-shin, who was in Group B, became Group A, and five left-handed pitchers pitched together in the bullpen.
KIA included as many as eight left-handed pitchers in this spring camp. In addition to the five people who threw that day, there are Kim Ki-hoon, Lee Jun-young, and rookie Yoon Young-cheol. It is truly a left-handed year.
Yang Hyeon-jong and Lee Eui-ri are confirmed members as starting pitchers, and Kim Ki-hoon and Yoon Young-cheol are competing for the 5th starting pitcher. Dae-Yoo Kim and Jun-Young Lee have found positions in the bullpen, while Yoo-Sin Kim and Ji-Min Choi are struggling to get into the bullpen.
How many of them will play for the first team? It is expected that you will often see scenes where left-handed pitchers come up after left-handed pitchers.
