“Last year, the average was 145 km…”
I’ve found my pace once, but it’s not perfect yet먹튀검증. KT Wiz domestic ace Sohn So-jun raised anticipation by making a good pitch in the final appearance of the demonstration game.
Joon Sohn started on the 27th in an exhibition game against the NC Dinos held at KT Wiz Park in Suwon, recording 2 hits, 1 walk, 5 strikeouts and no runs in 4 innings. His main weapon, two-seam (up to 144 km), cutter, changeup, slider, etc. were properly used to block the NC lineup well. After the match, KT coach Lee Kang-cheol welcomed him, saying, “So Hyung-jun threw several pitches and checked them, and it was better than the previous pitches. He seems to have found his own pace.”
On the 21st, his first appearance after returning from the WBC, against the Suwon Doosan Bears, he showed sluggish performance with 5 hits, 2 walks and 5 runs in 3⅓ innings.
Joon Sohn said, “I thought it was an official game because it was the last appearance before the regular season, so I focused and threw it.”
It’s still not perfect. On this day, when he said that his highest speed was 144 km, he said, “In last year’s demonstration game, the average was 145 km, but now the highest is 144 km, so I think I need to go up more.”
Still, the swings aren’t bad. “Today’s changeup seemed a bit lacking, but the curve felt good. I’m practicing the slider, but it didn’t feel good to me, but (Jang) Seong-woo hyung who received the ball said it was okay, so I’ll try to use it during the game.”
My goal for this season is 20 quality starts. Joon Sohn, who recorded 18 quality starts last year, said, “I want to make 20 quality starts this year.
