When will KIA Tigers’ native ace Yang Hyeon-jong (35) get on the mound for the first time in the season?

The KIA Tigers introduced new foreign pitchers Sean Anderson and Lee Eui-ri as starting pitchers in the opening series held last weekend. Anderson, who was in the best condition in the starting lineup, was selected for the opening game, and Eui-ri Lee, who had been preparing as the second starter since spring camp, started the second game of the opening series. 안전놀이터

Although the team lost, Anderson did his part, throwing 6 hits, 2 walks, 2 strikeouts and 3 runs in 6⅔ innings. Lee Eui-ri led the team’s first win by recording 3 hits, 6 walks, 3 strikeouts and 3 runs (1 earned) in 5 innings.

KIA challenges KT Wiz for two consecutive wins on the 4th expedition. The starting mound is guarded by Adonis Medina, who is making his debut in the KBO League. In the demonstration game, he recorded an average ERA of 5.11 with 1 loss in 3 games, 12⅓ innings, 13 strikeouts, and was somewhat sluggish. 

Naturally, attention is drawn to Yang Hyeon-jong’s first appearance of the season. KIA coach Kim Jong-guk, who we met at the opening game, said, “(Yang) Hyeon-jong will play against KT during the week according to the rotation.

KIA picked ‘super rookie’ Yoon Young-chul as their 5th starter. If the starting rotation runs normally, Yang Hyeon-jong is likely to pitch against KT on the 5th, and Yoon Young-cheol is expected to be in charge of the starting mound for the last game of the 3-game series on the 6th.

Anderson and Euri Lee threw 91 balls and 101 balls, respectively, in their first appearance. How about Hyunjong Yang? Manager Kim said, “I don’t think he can throw up to 100. He’s preparing for his first appearance and his condition has improved a lot.”

Meanwhile, Yoon Young-chul takes the 5th starting spot, and Lim Ki-young and Kim Ki-hoon start the season in the bullpen. Coach Kim said, “(Lim) Ki-young is going to be used as a long man at the beginning of the season, and (Kim) Ki-hoon is used in situations where he is losing by one or two points or should not concede anymore. The way the two players are used is similar.” explained.
