Lee Seon-woo (23)’s performance is a big boost to KT Wiz.
The KT Wiz, led by coach Lee Kang-cheol, had a bad start as they suffered from injuries before the start of the season. One or two injured are coming back, but the results are not good. As of the 22nd, they are at the bottom with 12 wins, 25 losses and 2 draws. From the 19th to the 21st, we won a winning series against the Suwon Doosan Bears, which was a valuable winning series in one month.
That doesn’t mean there’s no hope. There are players who give strength to the team by performing well even in poor performance. One of them is Lee Seon-woo.
Maybe the name Lee Seon-woo is unfamiliar to baseball fans. Prior to this season, he had only appeared in 5 games for the first team. Lee Seon-woo, a native of Yushin High School, entered the professional stage in 2019 after being nominated in the 61st place in the 2nd 7th round. He participated in two games in the 2019 season and three games in the 2020 season before enlisting on active duty.
After being discharged, Lee Sun-woo recorded 1 win in 4 games and an average ERA of 1.59 in the Futures League, and was converted from a training player to an official player in May. And on the last two days, he was named in the first team entry.
Seon-Woo Lee, who made his first appearance of the season on the 4th against Incheon SSG Landers, scored 2 hits, 1 walk, and 1 run in 1 inning, and showed good pitching for 4 consecutive games. Afterwards, on the 16th, he scored 1 run (0.2 innings) against the LG Twins in Jamsil, breaking the record for no runs in a row.
He has strengths in his slider and two-seam fastball. Although his average velocity was not fast, he excelled at controlling a variety of movements. He is also good at inducing ground balls. He can also throw multiple innings. On the 7th, against the Daejeon Hanwha Eagles, he recorded 2 hits, 2 hits, 2 strikeouts and no runs in 3 innings.메이저사이트
It’s hard to call him a winning team yet. He is now mainly playing in the chase team. It is because Park Young-hyun, Joo-kwon, Kim Jae-yoon, Kim Min-soo and Park Si-young, who will return soon, are holding out. However, Seonwoo Lee is a useful resource. In particular, in the current situation where there are many injured, the presence of Lee Seon-woo, who lightens the shoulders of the starters and Pil Seung-jo, is a great help to KT.
Lee Seon-woo is a player who is expected more tomorrow than today. Although he is still an unknown player with only 14 appearances in his professional career and no win, loss, hold, or save, Lee Sun-woo’s pitching is clearly a source of strength.
Will Lee Seon-woo continue to be a source of strength for the team with his outstanding performance?
