They were caught in a smoke screen operation.”
2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) Korean national team coach Lee Kang-cheol is drawing a mound operation sketch.카지노사이트 While the middle pitcher appointment of veteran pitchers Kim Gwang-hyun and Yang Hyeon-jong, which was delivered at the time of the entry announcement, was canceled, we are contemplating who to put on the mound from the first inning.
After completing the national team training held at the Tusan Kino Complex in Arizona, USA on the 19th (Korean time), coach Lee said, “I did not say that both Kim Gwang-hyun and Yang Hyeon-jong were used as middle pitchers. I was just thinking about it,” he smiled, saying, “I think there are some players who think that way, but they themselves were caught in a smoke screen operation.”
The characteristics of the national team mound this time are the starting and middle positions. Ten out of 15 pitchers (Kim Gwang-hyun, Yang Hyeon-jong, Koo Chang-mo, Lee Eui-ri, Kim Yun-sik, Ko Young-pyo, So-jun So, Won Tae-in, Park Se-woong, and Kwak Bin) are starting pitchers. There are 5 left-handed pitchers, and all 5 left-handed pitchers are starting pitchers for their teams.
It is a mound configuration in consideration of WBC regulations. There is a pitch limit, and if the number of pitches exceeds a certain number, pitching is prohibited the next day. Above all, in the first round, a pitcher cannot throw more than 65 pitches in one game. In addition, the pitcher who took the mound at the start of the inning must face at least three batters unconditionally.
In other words, it is impossible to deal with one or two batters and change pitchers. Therefore, a pitcher who can pull a pitch longer is more valuable than a pitcher who throws short. If the number of pitches is small, the icing on the cake. This is the reason why coach Lee put a lot of importance on starting pitchers. It is possible to draw a blueprint for three starting pitchers to throw from the 1st to the 6th inning, and then operate the bullpen pilseungjo.
Coach Lee said, “I will decide who is suitable for starting first through evaluation matches in the future. Basically, the starting pitcher makes the selection. At the same time, he is contemplating who will best block the early stages of the game from the 1st to the 3rd inning. In the short game, starting early in the game is important. A pitcher with experience, pitch, and mental strength is suitable. If the condition is similar, we will decide the starting pitcher with weight on this part.”
In the game against NC on the 17th, coach Lee made Kim Gwang-hyun the starting pitcher. And the starting pitcher for the KIA game on the 20th is Gu Chang-mo. Director Lee said, “For now, Changmo will appear in the first episode tomorrow. After Changmo, pitchers who did not throw in the NC game will come out. But (Jeong) Woo-young said he wanted to go out again, so I think I will let him go.”
When the reporters continued to ask questions about the selection and the middle, coach Lee smiled and said, “Don’t interrogate the judo.” “Nothing has come out of the other teams yet. If you wait, you will see how the mound turns. He emphasized that he would complete the mound operation through seven evaluation matches, from the KIA match on the 20th to the Hanshin match held in Osaka, Japan on March 7th.
Coach Lee said, “I will continue to do this training in the future. And he is also training bunts on offense. Park Byung-ho and Lee Jung-hoo are unlikely to bunt, but all players have to prepare first.”
Meanwhile, the KIA plans to pitch rookie left pitchers Kim Ki-hoon and Yoon Young-chul in a match against the national team on the 20th. The game will focus on rookie players rather than veterans, and second-year infielder Kim Do-young will also play against the national team.
