159 km start and 158 km finish… Moon Dong-ju and Kim Seo-hyun, looking forward to the day when they will throw together

The Hanwha Eagles, who finished at the bottom for three consecutive years, were able to select an excellent player as the first nomination in the rookie draft. Moon Dong-ju, the 1st nomination in 2022, and Kim Seo-hyun, the 1st overall overall 2023 round, are the protagonists.

Moon Dong-joo and Kim Seo-hyeon, whom Hanwha cares for and nurtures as future main players, pitched in the 1st and 2nd division matches on the 6th, respectively.토토사이트

Moon Dong-joo started against Daegu Samsung on the 6th and threw a fastball of up to 159km, becoming the winning pitcher with 1 hit, 1 walk, 4 strikeouts and no runs in 5 innings. Hanwha’s first win of the season, which fell into three consecutive losses in the opening season, was made by Moon Dong-ju, who will soon become Hanwha’s ace.

Since it was his first start of the season, he was replaced in the 70th pitch without overdoing it, and the content of the pitch was also powerful. After two outs in the first inning, he was in danger of first and second base due to hits and dunes, but he overcame the crisis by throwing out a fly ball out of the outfield with a big drop curve to Jae-il Oh, the giant of Samsung.

Afterwards, 13 consecutive batters were treated as criminal hits until the 5th inning, and the on-base itself was not allowed. Along with his fastball of 159 km, the power of his main weapon, the curve, stood out. After the game, coach Subero praised Moon Dong-ju for showing perfect pitching. 

As a rookie last year, Moon Dong-ju only appeared in 13 games due to minor injuries and recorded an average ERA of 5.65 with 1 win, 3 losses and 2 holds. He has a mediocre record, but since the end o

f September after returning from a second injury, he has shown potential with 1 win, 2 losses and an average ERA of 3.00 (5 earned runs in 15 innings) in 3 starts. In his first appearance this year, he showed a powerful pitch and stable control, so a step up from last year is expected.

Kim Seo-hyun took the mound in 5 demonstration games and recorded 2 runs (1 earned) in 5 innings. He threw a fastball with a maximum speed of 158 km in the demonstration game, but he had 3 hits, 4 walks and 2 balls, so there were parts that needed to be refined in the pitch and details.

Kim Seo-hyun started the season in the Futures League without being included in the opening entry. Director Subero and the Hanwha club plan to develop Kim Seo-hyun step by step without rushing.

Kim Seo-hyun pitched in two games in the Futures League. He is recording no runs in 2 innings, 2 hits, 1 walk, 1 walk, 4 strikeouts. On the 4th, in the match against the SSG 2nd team in the opening game of the Futures League, he recorded a fastball speed of up to 152 km. In the 2nd SSG game on the 6th, he recorded 2 hits, 2 strikeouts and no runs in 1 inning.  Kim Seo

-hyun, who is capable of a sidearm close to three quarters and an irregular pitching form, said that she could throw various pitches such as change-up, slider, splitter, and curve along with fast balls (four-seam, two-seam) in the middle of 150 km.

It seems that there is a lack of faith in the fast ball.” This is a part that Kim Seo-hyun needs to fill in while gaining experience in the Futures League for the time being.

Kim Seo-hyun also revealed his 50 save aspirations by mentioning the goal of the closer in spring camp. Hanwha fans are waiting for the day when Moon Dong-joo becomes the winning pitcher as the starter and Kim Seo-hyun records a save as the finisher.
