“I felt that my condition was good.”
Suwon KT Wiz Park on the 19th. During Doosan Bears’ training session, someone was pitching in the bullpen. I asked if he was a starting pitcher on Sunday, but he wasn’t. It was Jang Won-joon, who was appointed as the starting pitcher for the home game against the Samsung Lions in Jamsil on the 23rd.
Jang Won-joon, who joined the first team on the 18th with the news of his start, took a long break after starting the Futures League on the 10th, so he had time to improve his senses with bullpen pitching.
At this time, manager Lee Seung-yeop, watching Jang Won-joon’s bullpen pitching, was reflected on the bullpen TV in the dugout. It was a director who wanted to see Jang Won-joon’s appearance.
Doosan foreign pitcher Pyle Dylan’s elbow pain gave Jang Won-jun a chance. Jang Won-joon, who was on the brink of retirement after finishing last season, decided to challenge for another year through a meeting with manager Lee Seung-yeop.
Jang Won-jun, who had no victory after winning 3 wins in 2018 and taking a total of 129 wins. He, who was a consistent pitcher who threw over 140 innings in 10 consecutive seasons, was not able to use his strength in the face of time and injury.
His chances of starting were also reduced. Jang Won-joon’s first team start was the last on October 7, 2020 against the SK Wyverns 메이저사이트(1⅔ innings, 4 runs). Since then, he has only pitched in midfielders. He threw only 43⅓ innings from 2019 to last year.
I tried hard all season, but I couldn’t get into the 1st team, and I started in the 2nd team. He showed a stable appearance with an average ERA of 3.60 with 1 win and 1 loss in 4 games. He pitched 20 innings, striking out 18 while walking only 5. Although he has a high batting average of 2.8 4, he pitched reliably.

On the 10th, in the Futures League match against SSG Landers, he recorded a quality start with 6 hits, 5 strikeouts and 3 runs in 6 innings, and news of his start came to him.
Looking for a substitute selection for Pyle, coach Lee gave Lee Won-jae, a promising player, a chance to start first, but the result was disappointing, and he gave Jang Won-jun a second chance.
Director Lee’s expression was bright when he saw Jang Won-joon’s bullpen pitching. He said, “It’s good. It’s difficult to judge because it’s bullpen pitching, but it looks better than during camp and exhibition games,” he said.
There is no limit because he has consistently been a starter in the Futures League. He throws until he throws well. Jang Won-jun threw up to 82 in the Futures League. Coach Lee said, “He threw as a starter for the Futures, and since he’s a starting pitcher, shouldn’t he throw as much as he can throw?”
In order to win his 130th personal career, it is Jang Won-joon who must meet the requirements of a winning pitcher by throwing 5 innings and minimizing runs.
A selection opportunity that came after 3 years and 7 months. Will Jang Won-joon be able to show the fans the consistent pitching of the past?
