Bullpen pitching in practice… Pitching staff, quick pitch to improve condition
World Baseball Classic (WBC) Yang Hyeon-jong (KIA Tigers) at Kino Sports Complex in Arizona, USA on the 19th, where the second joint training was held since the 15th, which was convened by the Korean baseball team. Mann threw from the bullpen.
In the first joint training on the 16th, only Joon So (kt wiz) checked his pitch in the bullpen.
The rest of the pitchers learned the WBC official ball as a catch ball.
It was said that 15 national team pitchers had already pitched a certain amount of bullpen in the spring camp of a professional baseball club and came to the national team, but the scene where other pitchers did not pitch in the bullpen was curious.
There is no place for bullpen pitching in the national team’s accommodation or the indoor training ground of the Kino Sports Complex.
Battery coach Jin Gab-yong and pitching coach Jeong Hyeon-wook explained, “Instead of throwing from the bullpen, we substitute it with bullpen pitching in real life.”
Pitchers usually get on the mound two days after throwing from the bullpen.
The national team will play five evaluation matches against NC Dinos, KIA, kt, and LG Twins in the Tucson joint training that continues until the바카라, 28th.
On the 17th, he already defeated his first opponent, NC, 8-2, and on the 20th, he will face KIA for the second time.
The national team seems to have decided that it would be better to replace the bullpen pitching in the actual game as the actual game is played every two to three days, such as on the 23rd, 25th and 27th.
Coach Jung Hyeon-wook said, “Pitchers who have pitched in the field throw less than the number of pitches set, and when they are forced to move to the bullpen and throw more,” he said.
He added, “By the end of this month, we plan to increase the number of pitches so that pitchers can throw the ball in my condition.”
National team coach Lee Kang-cheol was also worried, saying that the fielders have built up their bodies well, but the pitchers’ condition has not improved yet.
During the remaining 9 days in Tucson, the selection and middle positions during the tournament will be determined depending on how quickly the pitchers adapt to the WBC official ball and whether they can show off the stable pitch that coach Lee Kang-cheol wants.
