When Hanwha Kim Seo-hyun released his pitching form shackles, the wild horse returned… 151 km 1 inning 2K bang!

Kim Seo-hyun (20·Hanwha Eagles), the No. 1 rookie draft player in last year’s Hanwha Eagles, showed off his true value at the Futures All-Star Game. It was enough to make people feel the expectation that he could be utilized in the first division of the upcoming second half.고소득알바

Kim Seo-hyun took the mound in the sixth inning with one out and 13th base, trailing 2-8. He allowed a sacrifice fly to left field against No. 1 hitter Kwon Dong-jin, but struck out No. 2 hitter Jung Joon-young with a great slider. Kim Seo-hyun, who came to the mound in the seventh inning, struck out No. 3 hitter Ko Seung-wan with a fastball before leaving the mound.

Kim Seo-hyun has suffered ups and downs in Hanwha. When he was a senior in high school, Kim usually used overhand or side-arm pitching form during games. From the first to the third innings, he would throw overhand to speed up the game, but suddenly throw to the side-arm. Then, as he became a professional, his pitching form began to settle down as one. In his early years as a pro, Kim had arms close to side-arm. Instead, he displayed tremendous speed.

The speed of nearly 160 kilometers was engraved on the Eagles Park. Expectations are rising that it could be the finishing touch for the Hanwha Eagles in the future. It was also Kim Seo-hyun who made a save in Choi Won-ho’s first win.

But after that, Kim Seo-hyun’s control shook and he began to wander.

When he couldn’t control his ball, he took an adventure to change his pitching form. His arm went up. Kim Seo-hyun couldn’t adjust to this. Because he had never raised his arm and thrown it.

An official of a professional baseball team said, “Raising your arms is not that easy. It is hard on your shoulders but also on your scapula. And it seems that you raised it a little, but the player himself feels like throwing it from the sky. Of course, all the balance is reversed. It means a great adventure.”

Since then, Kim has completely disappeared from the first team. He has never revealed his true value even in the spring camp. He spent most of the first half of this year in the second team, playing in only seven games in the first team. Before Kim Kyung-moon took office, he had five hits, 10 walks, four strikeouts and three runs (two earned runs) during eight innings. He has even reduced his speed.

Some analysts say that he missed his strength, his ball speed, while revising his pitching posture to compensate for his weakness, ball control.

In fact, according to Stattiz, Kim Seo-hyun’s four-seam fastball averaged 152.6 kilometers per hour last year, but decreased to 146.3 kilometers per hour this year.

Still, he did not end the first half with Kim Seo-hyun wandering. Kim Seo-hyun took the mound for the first time in a month and a half against the KT Wiz on the 3rd and allowed no runs in one inning. In the bottom of the 8th inning when the team was dragged 0-3, Kim took the mound with no outs and runners on the 1st and 2nd bases, giving up a sacrifice bunt and a walk, but handled Kim Sang-soo well with a double play. Kim Seo-hyun’s average fastball speed was 150.2 kilometers per hour on the day.

Kim Seo-hyun also said, “I want to give up my worries and go back to the past when I had nothing to be afraid of. When I was in high school, I used to throw 155 kilograms easily. At the World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) baseball World Cup in September 2022, I engraved 101 miles (about 163 kilometers) on the electronic display.

He was drafted by the Hanwha Eagles with the first overall pick in the 2023 KBO Rookie Draft. Kim Seo-hyun pitched in 18 games and posted a 3-3 record with a 1.31 ERA in this year’s National High School Baseball Championship. He struck out 72 while pitching in 55 ⅓ innings.

Kim Seo-hyun said, “I’ve been wandering a lot since the first season. Now I’m trying not to take another route. I think about 90 percent of the time is the same as in high school.” Kim Seo-hyun’s original pitching form had the chronic disadvantage of spreading arms and allowing the ball to flow toward the body of the right-handed batter.

However, when Kim Seo-hyun, who kicked twice and confidently hit the ball with fast arm swing, returned, his speed reached up to 151 km, and his ball control was not bad. When four-seam and breaking ball were embedded in the left-handed batter’s body, the ball started to work.

“I want to free Kim Seo-hyun,” Kim said. “I hope he throws as much as he wants, regardless of his pitching form.” Kim was originally a free-spirited player. As he was shackled by Kim, both his ball and control are returning to Seoul High School days.

“I want to see you at a bigger All-Star game next time. I will throw whatever I want to throw like I did in high school,” Kim Seo-hyun said, vowing to make a great leap forward in the second half of the year.
