6 scoreless innings → 3 wins of the season → Feeling “stuffy”… 23-year-old left-hander ‘struggling’ 

 “It’s frustrating.”

He sounds like a sluggish pitcher. no. He played well and became a winning pitcher, but he expressed his frustration. This is LG’s “Lefty Young Gun” Kim Yun-sik (23). something is not going your way He is using ‘struggling’ to do well.

Kim Yun-shik started against Hanwha in the 2023 KBO League regular season held at Jamsil Stadium on the 21st and made a quality start (QS) with 6 innings, 3 hits, 2 walks, 3 strikeouts and no runs. He also won 3 individual wins (1 loss). With Kim Yun-sik at the forefront, LG won 4-1 and won 4 consecutive victories.

Before the game, coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop said, “Now the preparations are over. Now is the time for Yunshik Kim to show his abilities. He took a lot of rest, and his pitches went up. He emphasized that he made his body.”

It just happened. He threw a fastball with a maximum speed of 145 km/h, and his change-up-slider-curve was also good. Since he became the first pitcher, he was able to pitch well.

However, Kim Yun-sik’s expression was not bright. She was extremely strict with herself. “I think I threw my ball in the 1st to 3rd innings. Not 4-5 times. We need to improve for the next game. Like the walks, I couldn’t throw the ball I wanted. I couldn’t throw it where I wanted. It was frustrating,” she said.

In fact, there was no such thing as a crisis. In the 1st and 2nd innings, he ended the inning by inducing double play one after another from first base, and finished the 3rd inning with a three-way offense. At the beginning of the 4th inning, he was driven to 1st and 1st bases, but finished with double play again. He finished the 5th or 6th inning without a crisis.

He went 6 innings with just 77 pitches. He didn’t even score. He throws well enough, but he doesn’t seem to be satisfied with himself. Even more so because last year was good. In particular, if you look at the record since September of the 2022 season, it is 34.1 innings in 6 games, 4 wins and undefeated, and an average ERA of 0.79. I have a great desire to do something like this. I can’t do it because of a back problem, etc. so frustrating

Kim Yun-sik said, “I went to 8 games this season. It’s still very frustrating. Both technically and externally. We need to break the suffocation as soon as possible. Training coach Kim Yong-il, pitching coaches, and bullpen catcher hyungs are helping me a lot. He seems to be much better than at the beginning of the season. But there is still a long way to go,” he said.

He continued, “I don’t think it has come up technically and functionally. There were also injuries. It’s not completely, 100% recovered yet. Little by little I feel bad. I think it will get better after that. We have to overcome now. Then it will get better,” he added.

His evaluation of himself is low, but he is still rising. “I am doing a little bit of the training I did last year. I couldn’t do it properly because of the pain. Now, even if it’s not good, I’m trying to overcome it. Not severe. I wonder if it will get better the more I do it. I have no doubts,” he said.

In addition, “Compared to last September, it is still not even 80%. In September of last year, I could put everything I wanted. There was also a changeup back then. threw whatever you want. Not now. Dealing with batters is not easy.”메이저사이트

Additional explanation about the changeup. “I don’t like the feeling of something slipping out of my fingertips. It doesn’t feel like a ‘tack’. You have to keep practicing. I am also viewing the data with Trackman. It’s frustrating. I’m still looking for last year’s video. We are researching,” he said.

In the end, you have to overcome yourself and do well. “Compared to recent games, I had strength today, but I think I threw with confidence. With today as an opportunity, I think I will be able to enter the next game with more confidence. I will prepare well and play well in the next game.”
