Lim Chan-gyu, whose ability is clearly recognized, “I will treat you as a domestic ace”

At the beginning of this season,메이저사이트 LG Twins right-hander Lim Chan-gyu (31) was assigned a long relief role. The domestic starting pitchers who initially entered the rotation were Kim Yun-shik, Lee Min-ho, and Kang Hyo-jong. However, Lim Chan-gyu is now the nucleus of the LG starting lineup. In the 11 games he started this season, he recorded 5 wins and 1 loss and an earned run average (ERA) of 2.85, including 4 quality starts (QS, pitching 6 or more starting innings and 3 earned runs or less). It is a card that succeeds the foreign one-two punch Adam Plutko and Casey Kelly. It is also encouraging that he pitched five or more innings in all of his last 10 starts.

As a result, the command tower’s faith in Lim Chan-gyu grew even more. Coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop, who praised even in the beginning, “What would have happened without (Im) Chan-gyu,” said before the Changwon NC Dinos game on the 22nd, “I will try to trust Lim Chan-gyu more in the future,” and “I will treat him as a domestic ace. Then Chan-gyu will be able to throw with more responsibility.” “You have to take responsibility for up to 100 pitches. Even if the number of pitches increases, it is a message that he believes in himself more than the pitcher.”

Director Yeom’s faith has a definite reason. This is because Lim Chan-gyu has the ability to perfectly combine three pitches: a fastball in the mid-140 km/h range, a changeup, and a curveball. In the past, he was somewhat obsessed with speed, but now he has been reborn as a pitcher who steals timing with a changeup and catches it. Director Yeom explained, “Lim Chan-gyu did not change his technique or pitching form.”

Considering the circumstances of LG’s domestic starters,메이저도메인 Lim Chan-kyu’s struggle is more encouraging. Kim Yoon-sik, who is currently adjusting with the Futures (2nd team) team, recorded 3 wins and 4 losses and an ERA of 5.29 in 11 games, below expectations. Director Yeom was very worried as the starting lineup did not turn as he had hoped. In the meantime, Lim Chan-gyu, who was a long relief player, is playing an ace-level role in Korea, so there is no such thing as a blessing for him.
