[OSEN=Incheon, Reporter Min Kyung-hoon] On the afternoon of the 4th, a match between Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League SSG Landers and Kiwoom Heroes took place at SSG Landers Field in Incheon. 2023.06.04 /rumi@osen.co.kr

Jang Jae-young, who recorded 64 pitches, was replaced by Lee Myung-jong in the 4th inning, where Kiwoom was losing 0-2, and finished the mound that day. The slider threw 33 pitches, more than half of the total pitches, with 24 fastballs and 7 curveballs. His highest fastball speed was up to 153 km/h.

The most important task for Jang Jae-young was to reduce the number of 4 balls and throw strikes. He did not throw long innings on this day, but he only gave up one walk on 4 walks, and his strike rate was good at 62.5%.

Coach Hong Won-ki said in an interview before the game that day, “Jang Jae-young had some ups and downs in the second group. Even so, he received reports that he pitched more reliably than before he was moved down to the second team. I think episode 1 is important today. He sees the process of how to solve the game as more important,” he said. He continued, “After Ahn Woo-jin, I plan to give other starting pitchers a break. The starting rotation operation will be decided after seeing the results of Jang Jae-young’s pitching today.”

Jang Jae-young, who joined as the first pick in the 2021 rookie draft, received great expectations, but has not yet achieved the expected results. He started the season again this year with 5 starts, but went down to the 2nd team after poor pitching in 2 consecutive games. Attention is focusing on whether Jang Jae-young, who returned to the 1st team stage after 47 days since the Samsung match on April 18th, had a disappointing result, but showed potential as well.
