KIA rookie Yoon Young-chul, KBO debut, 3⅔ innings, 5 runs, ‘severe reporting ceremony’

Prospect Yoon Young-chul (19), who joined the KIA Tigers as the second overall pick in the 2023 KBO Rookie Draft, realized the high wall of a professional in his first appearance on the first team stage.

On the 15th, Yoon Young-cheol started in an away game against Kiwoom Heroes, a professional baseball team held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Guro-gu, Seoul, and gave up 4 hits and 5 walks (4 walks, 1 hit ball) and 5 runs in 3⅔ innings.

KIA coach Kim Jong-guk expected Yoon Young-cheol to ‘5 innings and 3 runs’, but Yoon Young-cheol already gave up 5 runs in the first inning.

Yoon Young-cheol had a hard time with Lee Yong-gyu, the ‘master of the cut’, as the first hitter.

In the first at-bat in the first inning, Lee Yong-kyu hit Yun Young-cheol with three fouls, picked the ball on the 9th pitch, and went on base with a walk.

The next hitter, Lee Hyeong-jong, hit Yoon Young-cheol’s fastball and hit a double that flew quickly overhead, and Lee Yong-gyu sprinted home.

Yoon Young-cheol sent Lee Jung-hoo, the best player in the KBO League last year, on a walk. The last ball he threw to Lee Jung-hoo turned into a wild throw, giving third base to second base runner Lee Hyung-jong.

In the 1st and 3rd bases out of the box, Kim Hye-seong attacked Yoon Young-chul’s fastball and hit a single RBI double that pierced the side of the first baseman.

Subsequent hitter Park Joo-hong scored an RBI with a sacrifice fly to left field.

Yun Young-chul increased his out count by catching Kiwoom catcher Kim Dong-heon, who had formed a battery for six years during his time at Chungam Middle School and Chungam High School, with a floating ball from first baseman.

However, while throwing a 129 km/h slider to Lim Byeong-wook at second base, he was hit by a two-run home run that went over the right wall.

Lim Byung-wook hit a home run 1,658 days (about 4 years and 7 months) after the Gocheok NC Dinos game on September 30, 2018.

Yoon Young-cheol, who gave up walks, hits, and home runs in the first inning of the first team stage, treated Kim Tae-jin as a floating ball in center field and finished the first inning with difficulty.

In the second inning, Yun Yeong-cheol struck out Lee Yong-gyu, whom he met again, and easily increased the out count by blocking Lee Hyeong-jong with a ground ball to second base.

He gave up a walk to Lee Jeong-hoo, but Kim Hye-seong was treated as a shortstop floating ball, and the second inning ended with no runs.

In the third inning, only friend Kim Dong-heon sent out a ball that fit the body, and the inning was finished without giving up a hit.

There were no additional runs, but Yun Young-cheol, who had already thrown 40 balls in the first inning, could not hold the mound for long.

Yoon Young-chul handed over the mound to Choi Ji-min after two outs in the fourth inning.

On this day, Yoon Young-cheol mainly threw fastballs (54) with a maximum speed of 141 km, mixed with a slider (13) and a changeup (14).

Yoon Young-cheol pitched 13 wins and 2 losses with an average ERA of 1.66 in 15 games of the National High School Baseball Championship last year, and was selected as a youth representative and played an active role as an ace in the Under 18 Baseball World Cup. 온라인바카라

The KIA, which has the second overall pick in the 2023 KBO Rookie Draft, nominated Yoon Young-cheol, the ‘high school left-handed ace’.

Prior to graduating from high school, Yoon Young-chul attended various award ceremonies such as baseball and softball night and the Choi Dong-won Award as the ‘high school’s best pitcher’.

KIA pointed out Yoon Young-chul as the ‘next-generation ace’ and encouraged his growth.

Yoon Young-chul appeared twice during the demonstration game and pitched 8 ⅔ innings with 4 hits and no runs. He also met Kiwoom in Gocheok on March 16 and blocked 4 innings with 2 hits and no runs.

In the Futures (Second Division) League, on April 8, against the Samsung Lions, he pitched well with 9 hits and 3 runs in 6 innings.

Even for the ‘high school ace’, his first appearance in the regular season was burdensome.

In particular, Yoon Young-cheol could not hold out in his first inning and conceded a lot of runs.

However, KIA fans’ expectations for Yoon Young-cheol remain the same.

When Yun Young-chul went down the mound, KIA fans applauded for encouragement.
