SSG right-hander Moon Seung-won (34) showed a sense of stability in the starting pitching in two years, even though a no-game was declared in the rain.
Moon Seung-won started against Literature Lotte on the 6th and blocked it with 1 hit, 2 walks, 1 strikeout and 1 run in 3 innings. Although he gave up one point in the first inning, he threw a fastball with a maximum speed of 148 km and blocked it without additional runs until the third inning. Moon Seung-won’s record was also invalidated as it was a no-game after being stopped due to rain in the 3rd inning, but it was a meaningful game from a team perspective.
SSG coach Kim Won-hyung met with reporters ahead of the game against Hanwha in Daejeon on the 7th and said,메이저놀이터 “I asked Seung-won how he felt after the game yesterday, and he said that he was very nervous because it had been a long time since he was selected. After laughing, he said, “It’s natural,” and “After passing the first inning, I threw at my own pace. It was a no game, but Seung-won threw the ball as a starter, which will help us in the next game.”
Moon Seung-won is a key SSG pitcher who has been a full-time starting pitcher since 2017 and threw regular innings for four consecutive years until 2020. At the end of May 2021, he underwent ligament surgery for an elbow injury and returned in July of last year after a year of rehabilitation, but took over the bullpen due to team circumstances with a weak back door.
In this year’s spring camp, he prepared again as a starter, but there was a possibility that he would remain as a salvation due to the team’s plentiful starting resources and weak bullpen. However, foreign pitcher Eni Romero withdrew at the end of the camp complaining of shoulder pain, and Moon Seung-won started the season in the starting rotation.
Manager Kim Won-hyung said, “When I was good, I was a pitcher who threw 150 km in the late 140 km range. He has an aggressive pitching style, so he finishes the inning quickly and shows stable pitching. Even before the game yesterday (6th), I told the pitching coach (Cho Woong-cheon), ‘It’s the day Seung-won throws, so I feel comfortable’. Even if I get hit, it’s because I’m not in good shape that day, and I’m not the type to self-destruct.”
Underhand Park Jong-hoon, who underwent surgery at the same time as Moon Seung-won and returned after rehabilitation, will have his first start of the season against Hanwha on this day. Director Kim said, “Episode 1 is always a problem. The key is how well you solve the first episode,” he said.
