152km National University Side Arm with a breaking ball, 50% of two-seam ratio -…He hit a home run, but it was a possibility
Jung Woo-young took the mound in the fifth inning against NC at Changwon NC Park on the 26th. The situation is well behind 0-11.
Jung Woo-young recently tested breaking balls in the second division and returned to the first division entry on the 23rd. In a situation where the score was not burdensome, the breaking ball could be checked on the first team stage.
When he had a three-ball, one-strike against first batter Park Kun-woo, NC replaced him with a pinch hitter Kim Sung-wook. Kim Sung-wook picked up a walk.
He also threw three breaking balls against Martin at first base with no outs, but his control did not go as he wanted. In a three-ball and one-strike, he threw a two-seam 150km outer, and Martin pushed and hit a two-run home run (season 14th) that hit the left pole. He hit the end of the bat and a big ball came out. Martin hit well.
After losing a point, Jung Woo-young caught a groundout to second base with a slider for the third pitch against Kwon Hee-dong. He struck out three pitches with a slider, two-seam, and a forkball.
After two outs, he threw a change-up to Seo Ho-chul, which became an infield hit to shortstop. The shortstop failed to properly handle the missed ground ball. Kim Joo-won, who previously hit two doubles, threw three sliders in the match to become one ball and two strikes, and struck out two-seam in the full count to finish the inning.
In one inning, he recorded two hits (one home run), one walk, two strikeouts, and two runs. The grades are not good, but the content is positive.
Jung Woo-young actually won the hold king last year with only two-seam, but this season, his two-seam control was shaken and his opponents struggled to respond to two-seam.
Jung Woo-young was sluggish with six runs (four earned runs) in three innings in five games he pitched in August. His batting average was 50% (9 hits in 18 at-bats) and his ERA was 12.00. The season’s performance was high with 4 wins, 4 losses and 11 holds in 50 games and a 4.43 ERA. His ERA is the worst figure since his professional debut in 2019.
Head coach Yeom Kyung-yeop said that Jung Woo-young needs to throw breaking balls such as curves and changeups to be needed not only for this season but also for the future. It was emphasized from the spring camp, but it took time for the player to accept it.
Jung Woo-young went down to the second division and honed his breaking ball more, and in the Futures League, he recorded one hit, no walks, and no runs in three innings in three games. Under the direction of head coach Yeom, he tested by throwing ‘80% of breaking balls – 20% of two-seam’.
In his return to the first division, the ratio of breaking balls was high, but control was a problem. I threw 25 pitches and had 14 strikes. I threw only 11 two-seam pitches, 9 sliders, 3 changeups and 2 forkballs. The two-seam ratio threw 44 percent and more than 50 percent of breaking balls. If the ball can be thrown a little stably, it is advantageous in a fight with batters. Both strikeouts were rookies. 먹튀검증
