Baek Seung-hyun, who graduated from Soraecho-Sangincheon Middle School-Incheon High School, was nominated by the LG Twins in the 30th place in the 2nd 3rd round in 2015 and officially joined in 2017. When he joined the pros, his position was an infielder. In particular, he drew attention as a backup shortstop to succeed Oh Ji-hwan, who is playing an active role as a built-in shortstop within the team.

However, he seldom got a chance because Oh Ji-hwan occupied a large part in LG. Baek Seung-hyun also seriously considered changing his position in a situation where Oh Ji-hwan was holding out as a shortstop. In the end, in January 2020, he made the mound as a pitcher in an Australian league match as a member of Geelong Korea, and decided to change pitching. At the time, he also collected a surprise topic by spraying a fastball that exceeded 150 km.

Baek Seung-hyun took the mound in 16 games in 2021, the first year of pitching, and marked an ERA of 2.16 per hold without a win or loss. In 16⅔ total innings pitched, he allowed 4 runs (4 earned) on 13 hits, 4 walks, 2 hit balls and 10 strikeouts. After the season, he underwent surgery to remove a bone fragment in his elbow.

Last season, he recorded an average ERA of 10.80 with 1 loss and 1 hold without a win in 12 games. He gave up 15 hits (2 homers), 9 walks, 3 strikeouts and 13 runs (12 earned) in 10 innings, and his detailed performance was rather poor.

Although he did not play many first-team matches, it was Baek Seung-hyun who played a lot in the Futures League. In the 2021 Futures League, he achieved an average ERA of 4.44 (12 ERA in 24⅓ innings) with 1 win, 5 saves and 1 hold in 23 games. In 2022, he played in 36 games and went 2-2 with 9 saves and 5 holds with an earned run average of 2.39 (10 earned runs in 37⅔ innings). However, in the past two years, LG’s bullpen has been so powerful that it has rarely been given a chance to throw the ball in the first team.

However, after Yeom Gyeong-yeop, LG manager, took office last winter, he began to pay more attention to the value of Baek Seung-hyun. He, along with the existing winning team Lee Jung-yong, Jung Woo-young, and Go Woo-seok, were the “Plan B” winning team, and he instilled trust after dotting Baek Seung-hyeon, Ham Deok-ju, Yoo Young-chan, and Park Myeong-geun. In addition, pitching coach Kim Gyeong-tae, who was a pitching coach in the Futures League, was promoted as the main pitching coach for the first team, which was a great help. He was able to develop and operate pitchers with ‘continuity’ at the team and player level.꽁머니지급

Baek Seung-Hyun performed well this season with an average ERA of 2.08 with 1 loss and 1 hold without a win in 9 games. Baek Seung-hyun was also included in the opening roster, but was placed on the injured list on April 10 after complaining of discomfort in his right shoulder. After going through a rehabilitation process, he returned to the first team on the 4th and threw a good ball. In particular, the Samsung match in Jamsil on the 14th was a highlight.

At the time, the team was leading 3-2 by one point in the top of the 9th inning. Ham Deok-joo climbed the mound, but two walks and an error overlapped, causing a crisis with one company loaded. Here, LG replaced the pitcher Ham Deok-joo with Baek Seung-hyun. Baek Seung-hyeon struck out Kang Min-ho on a swing, and then led Kim Dong-yeop to a shortstop straight hit to keep the one-point lead. He threw a total of 13 pitches, of which only one was a fastball. On the other hand, he showed confidence in his breaking balls, with as many as 11 sliders. It was the moment Baek Seung-hyun reported his first save of his thrilling debut. However, as his shoulder pain recurs, he is expected to focus on rehabilitation again for the time being. LG fans are hoping to return to the 1st team mound in good shape as soon as possible.
