‘Hitter → Pitcher’ conversion, debut in 5 years, 1 inning scoreless… “A player’s big success, the club’s small success”

As soon as Lotte pitcher Park카지노사이트 Young-wan made his thrilling professional debut, he was immediately dropped from the first team entry.

Park Young-wan joined Lotte in the 2nd 5th round of the 2019 rookie draft. Kim Young-wan, who showed talent for pitching in high school, played as a fielder in his first year of debut, but switched to pitching in 2020.

He joined the army on active duty during the 2021 season after playing as a pitcher in the Futures League. He returned from service before this season.

Park Young-wan, who was a foster player, became an official player on the 11th and was registered as a first-team entry on the 13th. And as soon as he was called up, he was on the first team mound for the first time against Suwon KT.

Park Yeong-wan took the mound in the ninth inning with a 5-0 lead, and ended the game with one walk, one strikeout, and no run in one inning. He sent lead hitter Seong-Woo Jang out on a walk, but Hyun-Bin Hong got 2 outs at once with a double hit with a ground ball to 2nd baseman. He set Park Kyung-soo back with a strikeout on a swing. 

Regarding Park Young-wan’s pitching debut the day before at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on the 14th, coach Sutton said, “As a player, I turned from a fielder to a pitcher and really showed great success for myself. He gave a really good look. It’s not that big from the club’s point of view, but it’s a small success with good results by switching positions.” 

Park Young-wan got off to a good start with no runs in his professional debut as a pitcher, and depending on how he develops in the future, it could be a great success story for his club. 

On the 14th, Park Young-wan was immediately removed from the first-team entry. Manager Sutton said, “Yesterday, I took out the bullpen pitcher because there are many pitchers who have been prepared. Not a bad reason. Earlier, as we played two consecutive overtime games, the bullpen thinned out. There were not many pitchers available for the game, but the pitchers who came out yesterday blocked it well without giving any points. Park Young-wan is one of them. Today, other pitchers are ready, so Park Young-wan showed a good performance, but now I have a promise for the next one.”

Lotte played 10 overtime matches against Doosan on the 11th and 10 overtime matches against KT on the 12th. As all of the pitchers in the bullpen had two consecutive pitches, there were only a few bullpen pitchers that could be used against KT on the 13th. It was because of the bullpen overload that starter Han Hyun-hee threw 110 pitches and was responsible for 6 innings.

Park Young-wan was called up for one game, but he performed 100% of the task given to him. Then he went down to District 2 again. Park Young-wan is recording an average ERA of 2.57 with 1 win and 1 hold in 7 appearances in the Futures League this season.
