‘Escape from FA crisis → Kiwoom selection last puzzle’ Jeong Chan-heon, finally the first sortie of the season

 Kiwoom Heroes Jung Chan-heon (33) will make his first appearance of the season. 

Jeong Chan-heon will start the match against SSG Landers in the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 5th. 

Jeong Chan-heon, who recorded 5 wins, 6 losses and an average ERA of 5.36 in 20 games (87⅓ innings) last season, obtained FA qualification after the season ended, but did not find his team until the demonstration game was over. Jeong Chan-heon, who personally prepared for the season, successfully signed a dramatic contract with Kiwoom on March 27 ahead of the season opening for a total of 860 million won over two years. 

Jeong Chan-heon, who adjusted his condition by recording an average ERA of 1.80 in 2 games (5 innings) in the Futures League, was scheduled to make his first start of the season against Lotte on the 29th of last month, but his pitching was postponed due to rain. After a long wait, in this game, he will be on the mound for the first time this season. 

Director Hong Won-ki said, “Jung Chan-heon seems to have prepared himself a lot in the winter. But now, there is a clear difference between preparing in a team and preparing individually. He would have done well on his own, but the key is the number of pitches and how much he has improved his pace in practice. He also had a hard time in the winter. In his selection position, he will have his own extraordinary determination. First of all, if Chan-heon Jeong fills the vacant position in the 5th starting position, he will be of great help to the team management.” 메이저사이트

Kiwoom is currently struggling with the 5th starting position. Jang Jae-young was the first to get a chance with 5 starts, but 2 games (6⅓ innings) 2 losses and an average ERA of 12.79, and Lee Seung-ho, who started 5 starts, also started 1 game and 2 ⅔ innings, 3 hits (1 home run) 3 He recorded a loss with 1 walk, 1 strikeout and 3 runs and went down to the 2nd group. 

Kiwoom, who has a solid starting rotation with Ahn Woo-jin, Eric Yokishi, Ariel Hurado, and Choi Won-tae, is running third in the starting ERA league (3.36). If you find a pitcher to fill the 5th starting position, the Kiwoom starting team can go up a notch. 

Will Jeong Chan-heon, who returned to Kiwoom after spending time wandering last winter, be the last puzzle of Kiwoom’s starting team?
