“As soon as you get in shape, you will feel powerful.”

Samsung Lions head coach Park Jin-man had high praise for Yuk Sun-yeop, the fourth overall pick in the 2024 KBO Rookie Draft, which was held on Thursday at the Westin Chosun Hotel Grand Ballroom in Sogong-dong, Jung-gu, Seoul.

Park Jin-man, who met with reporters before the team’s game against the KT Wiz at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu on Thursday, said, “I watched Yuk Sun-yeop on video even before I drafted him. He has a good batting average because of his height, and his body is flexible. I think he has good pitching power and command. He is a player who can be used as a powerhouse immediately if he builds his body well.”안전놀이터

Yuk Sun-yeop is a right-handed pitcher from Jangchung-go with a sturdy build of 190 centimeters and 90 kilograms. Samsung said, “He has all the conditions to become a starting pitcher, including fastball, changeup, and stamina.” “With his physical condition and excellent work ethic, he is expected to be a part of the starting staff in the future.”

Manager Park Jin-man said, “First of all, I kept playing as a starter. I still need to come and check him out, but I think he’s good enough to be a starter based on the video. If he prepares well, he’ll be good in the pros.”

In the second round, Samsung selected Park Jun-yong, a right-handed pitcher from Gyeongbuk High School and Soosung University. Samsung said, “He has a stable fastball and good game management skills. We plan to develop him as a starting pitcher in the future as he has excellent innings digestibility. We highly value that he has developed his skills at an ideal pace after entering college.”

Park Jin-man said, “Park Jun-yong is similar to Yuk Sun-yeop. He has a high batting average. He has power with the ball, and he has some command. He is a fastball player. He is also flexible,” he said.
