Doosan mound upgrade notice, one-two punch merger → veiled rookie
The Doosan Bears mound is expected to become more solid. Foreign pitcher Dylan Pyle (26) joined the countdown. Also, rookie pitcher Kim Yoo-seong (21) is about to debut.
Dylan will take the mound in the Futures (Second Division) League match against the KIA Tigers in Icheon on the 27th. After examining his physical condition and pitching feel, he is expected to be able to pitch in the first team game next week if he has the sense to throw in the first team.
but still cautious Just because he pitched in a Futures League game doesn’t mean he’s immediately called up to the first team.
Manager Lee Seung-yeop explained, “I’ve been talking about it many times, but I’m careful because I got hit in the head. Depending on the results of my appearance tomorrow (27th), I may make another appearance in the Futures League.”
Dylan was hit in the head by a batted ball during live pitching at spring camp in Sydney, Australia.
He was diagnosed with a bone contusion and was rested. He had dizziness and he couldn’t pitch.
Dylan, who returned home five days later than other players, was diagnosed with a four-week break at a local hospital.
Fortunately, he showed signs of improvement. He finally started throwing the ball. After pitching in the bullpen three times, he took his first real test on the 19th in a game against the independent baseball team Yeoncheon Miracle. He had 3 innings, 1 hit, 4 walks, 6 strikeouts and no runs. He threw a total of 36 pitches.
Dylan will take the final test to enter the first team in the Futures League match on the 27th.
Another change is scheduled for the Doosan mound. Doosan rookie pitcher Kim Yu-seong, who agreed with a victim of school violence, started counting down his debut.
Kim Yoo-seong joined the first team on the 25th. Entry is not registered. It was a consideration to adapt while watching the first team players. On the 26th, he pitched in the bullpen at Lions Park.
A Doosan official said, “We threw a total of 22, mixing fastballs and sliders.”
Kim Yu-seong was suspended for 1 year in 2021 from the Korea Baseball Softball Association due to his “history of school violence” in middle school.
NC Dinos first nominated Kim Yoo-seong as a rookie in 2021, but withdrew his contract due to fierce public opinion.메이저사이트
Kim Yu-seong went to Korea University and got on the mound after digesting the disciplinary action.
In the 2023 rookie draft, Doosan selected Kim Yu-seong as the 19th overall pick in the second round and signed a contract for 150 million won.
After joining Doosan, Kim Yu-seong played in the Futures (second team) league and tried to reach an agreement with the victim, and was recently forgiven.
Kim Yoo-seong pitched well with a 2.77 ERA in 3 appearances in the Futures League.
Kim Yoo-seong, who received the ‘forgiveness of the victim’ set by the Doosan club as the first-team registration standard, is expected to be listed in the first-team entry soon.
If Dylan and Kim Yu-seong join the first team, the Doosan mound can rise even higher.
