‘MVP Park Shin-ji, Distinguished Players Choi Ji-gang and Kim Taek-yeon’ ‘Young pitcher makes great progress’ Doosan

Pitcher Park Shin, selected as the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the first training camp by Manager Seung-yeop Lee and the coaching staff.

The Doosan Bears, who finished the first spring camp in Australia, moved to the second camp in a good mood and started actual training after seeing the further developed skills of young pitchers such as Park Shin-ji (24), Choi Ji-gang (22), and Kim Taek-yeon (19).

The Doosan team trained mainly on physical strength and tactics at the Blacktown Baseball Stadium in Sydney, Australia from the 1st to the 18th. After returning home on the 19th, they moved to Miyazaki, Japan on the 21st to begin their second camp focused on actual combat.

Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop said, “The fact that we finished the first camp without a single injury is a great achievement in itself.”

However, this is not the only income from Doosan’s first camp. During the first camp period, young pitchers showed remarkable progress, raising expectations for the Doosan mound this season.

Park Shin-ji, who was drafted in the first round in 2018, stood out in the competition for starting pitcher by being selected as the best player (MVP) in the first training camp.

To date, only three spots on the Doosan mound have been confirmed: Raul Alcantara, Brandon Waddell, and Kwak Bin.

In addition, Choi Won-jun, Lee Young-ha, Kim Dong-ju, Kim Yu-seong, Choi Jun-ho, and Kim Min-gyu are competing fiercely to occupy the remaining starting positions. Park Shin-ji, who is competing for the starting spot alongside them, stood out in the first camp and was selected as MVP, receiving great expectations.

Park Shin-ji said, “I was selected as the MVP of the Australian camp for two years in a row, but in fact, I was not able to achieve good results last year,” and expressed her ambition, “I definitely want to produce different results this year.”

Ji-gang Choi and Taek-yeon Kim were also selected as Distinguished Players in the first camp, promising great performance this season.

Right-hander Choi Ji-gang surprised everyone by recording a top speed of 151 km in the first match held at the first camp site. Choi Ji-gang, a 2022 training player, has already made an impression on coach Lee with his aggressive pitching last year.

Ji-gang Choi, who has been throwing fastballs since the first spring camp this year, is expected to play a big role in the Doosan bullpen this season.

Rookie Kim Taek-yeon, whom Doosan selected as the second overall pick in the first round this year, was also recognized for his abilities by the coaching staff at the first camp site.

Taekyeon Kim pitched so amazingly in his own Blue and White match held on the 17th that it was hard to believe he was a rookie. Kim Taek-yeon, who appeared on the actual game stage for the first time in five months in the aftermath of five consecutive pitches at the U-18 Baseball World Cup held in Taiwan last September, pitched a perfect pitch against four batters, pitching 14 pitches, no hits, four walks, no hits, two strikeouts, and no runs in one inning.

Kim Taek-yeon, who is even mentioned as a candidate for closer despite being a rookie, showed a performance that satisfied even coach Lee Seung-yeop, who said, ‘I want to see a strong mentality that can adapt to the pros’ in his first actual pitch.

Doosan’s coaching staff plans to ensure that Kim Taek-yeon does not overexert himself during the second spring camp and will provide support to help him adapt to actual play.

Meanwhile, Doosan will play practice games against the Orix Buffaloes on the 23rd, Softbank Hawks 2nd team on the 24th, Softbank Hawks 1st team on the 25th, and then play Seibu Lions (27th) in the Nine Spring Tournament held at Sun Marine Stadium on the 27th-29th. , will face Chiba Lotte Marines (29th) in succession. 스포츠토토
