“It was perfect beyond impressive.”

Hanwha Eagles coach Carlos Subero raised his thumbs up for Jang Min-jae (33)’s good fight in the last game (against KIA Tigers in Gwangju on the 13th) ahead of the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ kt Wiz match to be held at Suwon kt Wiz Park on the 14th.

Jang Min-jae appeared as a starting pitcher in the KIA game on the 13th and showed off a clean pitch. He put out runners every inning 2-6, but showed off his unique crisis management skills. He used a variety of pitches such as a four-seam fastball, forkball, curveball, and slider to tie up the opponent’s batting line.

Jang Min-jae’s final score that day was 6 innings, 6 hits, 1 walk, 6 strikeouts, no runs. He contributed to the team’s 5-1 victory and played a significant role in confirming the first winning series of the season. 스포츠토토

Director Subero met with reporters and smiled, saying that Jang Min-jae’s pitching couldn’t have been better. “I think the word impressive (as the reporter said) is correct. In fact, I tend not to easily agree with the reporter’s question. However, I agree even if (Jang Min-jae’s pitching) was more than impressive and perfect. He didn’t waste the ball and pitched efficiently. In addition, he used all the pitches he had in the right place to disrupt the opponent’s batting balance. It is encouraging that he pitched like that.”

On the other line, he did not hesitate to praise Chae Eun-seong. Chae Eun-seong, who wore the Hanwha uniform as a free agent (FA) this season, has a batting average of 0.366 (15 hits in 41 bats), 3 home runs, and 11 RBIs in 10 games, showing a hot hitting feeling with an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 1.106.

Coach Subero said, “He is a professional hitter,” and “I can calmly play in a tense situation. There are many things that young players can learn by watching the actions they show and off the pitch.”

Meanwhile, Hanwha changed their lineup against starting opponent Wes Benjamin. Brian O’Grady, who had been sluggish with a batting average of 0.162 (6 hits in 37 at-bats), returned to the starting list after one game. Coach Subero said, “Benjamin is a good player in the league, but he is a human before that, so he will make mistakes. I think the game plan is for the players to dig into and attack those mistakes.” “I start at the bottom of the batting order, and it’s a mental break,” he said.
