‘Super Rookie’ Kim Seo-hyun to second team… Choi Won-ho “needs to overhaul body and mind”
Fastball pitcher Kim Seo-hyun (19-Hanwha Eagles) is heading to the second team after a recent slump.
Choi Won-ho announced the news of Kim’s removal from the first team before the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League game against the Doosan Bears at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 8th. Kim came on as the second pitcher in the seventh inning with the team leading 3-1 against Doosan on the 7th and gave up a single and a hit by pitch in 0.1 innings before being removed from the mound.
Kim is 1-0 with a 5.60 ERA in 18 appearances so far this season. In her four games this month, she gave up seven walks and two hit-by-pitches, and was sent to the second team.
“Kim Seo-hyun was looking around when she came off the mound on the last seven days,” Choi said, explaining the decision to move her to the second team. “I think it’s time for him to get his body and mind in order,” he added.토토사이트
Kim Seo-hyun is a super rookie who was selected in the first round of the 2023 draft. He is specially managed by Hanwha. “I think (Kim) needs to systematically receive training in the second team and pitch before the game to increase the number of pitches,” Choi said, explaining the decision to hold the second team selection class. “It means to bring him up from the bottom again rather than switching him to the starting line-up immediately,” he said, adding, “I don’t know when he will return to the first team, and his position will be decided again after discussions with the coaching staff and the club.”
Hanwha called up pitcher Song Yoon-jun after sending down Kim Seo-hyun. “He’s the best pitcher in the second team right now,” Choi said of Song, “He doesn’t have a very fastball, but he can handle hitters.” “For now, he will play a swingman role in the first team depending on the situation,” Choi said.
