Jung Woo-young, who started the season late last year after surgery to remove bone fragments from his right elbow, has posted an ERA of 1.099 strikeouts in eight ⅔ innings with one hold in nine games. He is gradually improving his physical condition and finding the pace of his pitches.

Above all, what Yeom gave a positive assessment of is the faster slide step. Until now, Jung struggled with the slide step. If a runner was sent to the floor, he could easily donate a stolen base due to the slow slide step, facing a crisis of losing points. One of these reasons is that Yoo Young-chan replaced hold king Jung Woo-young as a closer without Ko Woo-seok (Miami Marlins).

“(Jung) Woo-young left everything else, so the slide staff came in within 1 second and 30 seconds. He is showing his speed. When a ball like a wind-up comes out (from a set position), it means that he has balanced his speed. “I really worked hard over the past year. Of course, I have to fix it,” Yeom said. “Woo-young is a pitcher with high WHIP (base-plus-slugging percentage). Baseball has changed. If a runner goes out, his ERA will inevitably rise as he can run in all different seasons. So, he played in the fifth and sixth innings last year, and if a starting pitcher collapses, he usually played in the fourth and fifth innings. Now that he is a slide step, he can be used in all situations.”

After graduating from Seoul High School, Jung Woo-young joined LG with the 15th overall pick in the second round of the “2019 KBO League Rookie Draft.” Prior to this season, he recorded 109 holds in the five years, and in the last 2022 season, he recorded 35 holds in a year to win the title of hold king. Since then, he has suffered ups and downs. Last year, when Yeom pointed out that he had difficulty improving his slide steps, he was shaken to an ERA of 4.70 in 51 ⅔ innings in 60 games. It was his first ERA in four points since his debut.

Jung started reorganization including slide steps in this year’s Futures League, and returned to the first team on July 18 to regain the hold king’s dignity. Will Jung be able to display stronger pitching after improving his weaknesses.
