Resurrected Submarine Park Jong-hoon “Continuing momentum against Hanwha”

SSG Landers’ submarine pitcher Park Jong-hoon (32), who was resurrected after reorganization, challenges his second victory of the season.

Park Jong-hoon will start in the 2023 Shinhan Bank Sol KBO League game against the Hanwha Eagles at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 12th.

Park Jong-hoon,메이저사이트 who prepared an opportunity to rebound by harvesting his first win of the season against Gocheok Kiwoom Heroes on the 6th, is determined to continue his momentum.

Park Jong-hoon, who had an elbow ligament joint surgery (Tommy John surgery) in June 2021 and ended the season early, returned at the end of July last year, but his performance did not live up to expectations. He went 3-5 with an ERA of 6.00 in 11 games.

Ahead of this season, SSG coach Kim Won-hyeong raised expectations, saying, “They say that my skills will come out in the second year of my return after elbow ligament surgery.”

However, at the beginning of the season, Park Jong-hoon did not live up to expectations.

In his first appearance of the season, against the Hanwha Eagles on the 7th of last month, Park Jong-hoon threw well with 3 hits, 4 walks, 4 strikeouts and no runs in 6 innings.

But after that, it seemed to be in trouble.

On the 13th of the same month, against the Samsung Lions, he was hit with 6 hits, including 3 home runs, and allowed 8 runs in 3 innings. At the time, he collapsed on his own, throwing three walks and three hit balls.

Park Jong-hoon was hit by 10 hits and allowed 5 runs (4 earned runs) in 6 innings against the KT Wiz on the 19th of last month, and was sluggish.

In the end, Park Jong-hoon was excluded from the first team entry on the 20th of last month. Coach Kim decided that he needed time to reorganize.

Park Jong-hoon, who finished the reorganization, boasted a resurrected appearance.

In the first game of his return to the first team, against the Doosan Bears on the 30th of last month, he became a losing pitcher because he did not receive support from the other line, but he pitched well with 6 hits, 5 strikeouts, 1 walk and 1 run in 6 innings.

In the next appearance, against Kiwoom on the 6th of this month, he showed a more outstanding pitching with 6 hits, 6 strikeouts, 2 walks and 1 run in 7 innings.

Park Jong-hoon, who won a decision victory in the starting match against Kiwoom ace Ahn Woo-jin, who has risen to the top pitcher in the KBO League, reported his first victory of the season.

Manager Kim analyzed that during his reorganization period, Park Jong-hoon’s efforts to lower his stance had paid off.

Director Kim said, “When Park Jong-hoon was good, he threw enough to touch the ground, but as he rose little by little, the balance seemed to be shaken.” Throwing from a place has to bend more, so it can put a lot of strain on the body,” he explained.

“Park Jong-hoon listened to the coaches and power analysis team and tried to lower his arm position. He did a lot of physical exercise and tried to supplement it,” he added.

He said that removing the hesitation during the windup and then putting it back has also worked.

Director Kim said, “Park Jong-hoon lifts his legs and makes a slight stop before shifting the center of gravity.

After 10 days of reorganization, Park Jong-hoon succeeded in rebounding, and his opponent for the second victory of the season was Hanwha, who showed a strong performance.

Park Jong-hoon did not have fun with 2 losses and an average ERA of 7.62 in 3 games against Hanwha last year, but he was originally called ‘Hanwha’s natural enemy’.

He won 17 of his 70 career wins against Hanwha. His overall record against Hanwha is 32 matches (28 starts), 17 wins, 5 losses, 1 hold, and an average ERA of 3.23.

Even though foreign pitcher Eni Romero was kicked out without even playing a game due to an injury, the SSG starters are proud of their solid appearance. If the resurrected Park Jong-hoon continues to show a sense of stability, the SSG starters will be able to show off their power even more.
