Because it hurts, it is youth. It is a perfect fit for Yang Kyung-mo (21, Hanwha Eagles).
Yang Kyung-mo of Geelong Korea allowed 3 home runs in 1/3 innings in a match against Oakland Tuatara held at Geelong Stadium in Australia on January 12th. It is a disappointing pitch compared to what was expected by recording a speed of over 150 km / h in his last appearance. But this is a very natural phenomenon.
Yang Kyung-mo is the player selected by Hanwha as the 31st overall player in the 2nd 4th round of the 2022 rookie nomination. Yang Kyung-mo was a player who threw faster than this in high school. He boasts a fast pace, as his lowest velocity was 147 km/h when he pitched one inning at full power. There was talk that he would go much faster than him in the first place, but his lack of breaking ball and lack of control got in the way.
In fact, Yang Kyung-mo has recently returned from MCL surgery. Immediately after his joining, he underwent elbow ligament splicing and bone fragment removal surgery and rehabilitated for a year, and Geelong Korea is the stage for his return.
Many players say that after receiving the MCL and returning, it feels like his arm is not mine. It usually takes 6 months or more than 1 year to show off your original skills. In that sense, the current pitch cannot be said to be Yang Kyung-mo’s perfect pitch. That’s why his restraints fluctuated every other day.
The second Yang Gyeong-mo is playing in a state where he has not yet been properly equipped with a pitch in the pro game. Even in high school, he was a weak breaking ball player. The four-seam and splitter were Yang’s main weapons, and it was safe to say that the breaking ball was actually a type of splitter.
Currently, Yang Kyung-mo’s pitching form, pitching style, and type of pitch are the same as those of his high school days. That’s why every ball feels like a four-seam. It can be said that he is a raw stone player who has not yet been trained by a professional club. It is strange if a player who has just returned from surgery is not suited to dealing with powerful hitters with only four seams.
Nevertheless, Yang Kyung-mo showed potential. He already has his velocity over 150km/h, which proves that his rehabilitation is well over. He is not the type to avoid a home run just because he is hit. This is the so-called push-up type. He possesses a personality well suited to a celestial reliever. He was a player who initially thought of him as a relief pitcher and picked him only for velocity. Regarding one restraint, Yang Kyung-mo was among the top 3 high school players that year. As far as his four-seam is concerned, his pitching is good. He’d rather hit a home run than allow a ton of walks and break down.슬롯사이트
Moon Dong-ju, a special rookie of Hanwha, also allowed three homers in one game last year. Hitting three home runs in the off-season Australian league does not mean that the future value of Yang Kyung-mo disappears.
