From the ‘right-handed 160km duo’ to the ‘left-handed fireballer’, there is no need to worry about 10 years of Hanwha… Recruitment of Hwang Jun-seo ‘Is there a better rebuild than this?’

Moon Dong-ju (20) and Kim Seo-hyun (19) are a fearsome right-handed duo who throws fastballs at 160 km per hour. In addition, the Hanwha Eagles now have 150km left-handed fireballer Hwang Jun-seo (18, Jangchung High School) in their arms.먹튀검증

Hanwha selected Hwang Jun-seo as the first overall pick in the 2024 KBO rookie draft held at the Grand Ballroom of the Westin Chosun Hotel in Jung-gu, Seoul on the 14th.

We brought in three pitchers who have performed at the highest level in the high school league over the past three years. It seems that Hanwha, which has been unable to shake off its image as a ‘last place for 10,000 years’, will also have an opportunity for natural rebuilding.

There is absolutely no doubt about the talent of pitchers Moon Dong-ju and Kim Seo-hyun, who are just 160km away from the Taegeuk mark.Moon Dong-ju, who was drafted in the first round two years ago and is now in his second year as a pro in the Hanwha uniform. Of course, he had difficulties last year due to injuries and an adjustment period, but he completely shook off his concerns this season and became the number one player for the Rookie of the Year Award.

Under the special management of Manager Choi Won-ho, the season ended early after 23 games and 118⅔ innings, but he was reborn as Hanwha’s signature pitcher with 8 wins, 8 losses, and an earned run average (ERA) of 3.72. During the season, he recorded a KBO-approved fastball of 160 km and was named the league’s best fastball pitcher.

Another 160km monster, Seohyun Kim, had a difficult debut season. He went back and forth between starter and bullpen in 20 games and 22⅓ innings, but left something to be desired with 1 save and an ERA of 7.25, and is now serving in the Futures (2nd team) again.

But no one has any doubts. Kim Seo-hyun has already experienced the ups and downs of Moon Dong-joo last year and is evaluated as having the best pitch and mentality in the team. There is no disagreement that he will shake off this season’s slump and prepare steadily for next season to become a pitcher who leads the team.

Expectations are placed on Hwang Jun-seo, who has a variety of left-handed fireballers.In addition, he was able to embrace Hwang Jun-seo as the first overall player on this day. Hwang Jun-seo, who boasts a sturdy physique with a height of 187 cm and a weight of 80 kg, is a left-handed pitcher who uses a curveball, splitter, and slider along with a fastball reaching up to 150 km per hour.

In his entire high school career, he recorded 31 games, 9 wins, 4 losses, ERA 1.93, and 132 strikeouts in 112⅓ innings. This year, as a junior, he went 6 wins, 2 losses, ERA 2.16, and 17 walks (16 walks, 1 ball hit to the body) in 15 games and 49⅔ innings, with 58 strikeouts and 58 strikeouts. He showed off his skills.

After being nominated, Hwang Jun-seo said, “I still can’t believe it and my hands and feet are shaking. I think the Hanwha uniform suits me well,” and expressed his determination, “I will always do my best and become the player the team needs.”

He also said, “The team’s win comes first rather than my personal goals,” and expressed his determination, “I want to pitch hard so that the team can go as high as possible.”

In addition, another Jangchung High School left-hander Jo Dong-wook was also brought in. Afterwards, he focused on strengthening the depth of the fielders. After the draft, the Hanwha club said, “We strengthened the depth of the left-handed mound by successively naming excellent left-handed pitchers Hwang Jun-seo and Jo Dong-wook in the upper rounds,” and “In the subsequent rounds, we secured excellent infield resources such as Jeong An-seok, who focuses on offense, and Hwang Young-mook, who has stability. “It’s done,” he said.
