KIA Tigers national team left-handed pitcher Yang Hyeon-jong (35) and Lee Eui-ri (21) pitched in the bullpen and adjusted their condition.
Yang Hyeon-jong and Lee Eui-ri conducted bullpen pitching at the spring camp held at Kino Sports Complex in Tucson, Arizona, USA on the 7th (Korean time). This is Yang Hyeon-jong’s first bullpen pitching, and Lee Eui-ri’s second bullpen pitching.
Yang Hyeon-jong, who threw 30 pitches in the first bullpen pitch, said, “I threw well without any pain. It was his first bullpen pitching, so he pitched with attention to balance, and the result was good. Overall, he seems to be doing as he prepared,” he said, expressing his feelings about pitching in the bullpen. Eui-ri Lee said, “I pitched in the bullpen for the second time, and I think I am in good overall condition. He threw a total of 47 pitches, and I threw all of my pitches (fastball, slider, curveball, changeup).”
Yang Hyeon-jong and Lee Eui-ri, who were selected as national representatives for the World Baseball Classic (WBC) to be held in March, are learning the pitching sense by throwing the WBC official ball (major league official ball). Some pitchers have difficulty adapting to the WBC official ball because it has a lower seam and is slippery than the KBO League official ball. 토토사이트
Yang Hyeon-jong said, “I threw a fastball, slider, curve, and changeup with the WBC official ball. It’s the same ball he used in the major leagues, so there’s no big difference, but it’s a little awkward since he’s thrown it for the first time in a while. He can adapt the more he throws, so he doesn’t really care.
Lee Eui-ri said, “Compared to the last pitching, the WBC official ball felt a little slippery. There was no great discomfort. He plans to join the national team after pitching 2-3 times in the bullpen. I will try to join the national team in the best condition.”
Yang Hyun-jong and Lee Eui-ri, who are preparing for the season at the KIA spring camp, will join the national team camp on the 14th and digest the WBC schedule.
