It didn’t come out in March.

Jang Jeong-seok, former general manager of KIA, who was dismissed for misconduct in the process of promoting a non-FA multi-year contract with Park Dong-won (LG). The last player left by former general manager Jang at KIA is Kim Dae-yu (32), a left-handed submariner. Byun Woo-hyuk and Joo Hyo-sang entered the trade on November 10-11, 2022, and Kim Dae-yu was designated as Park Dong-won’s compensation player on November 27.

Kim Dae-yu was also quite successful in LG, the ‘bullpen kingdom’. It’s a sidearm, but it’s a left hand that’s rare in the league. 2021 season 4 wins 1 loss 24 hold average ERA 2.13 in 64 games, 2022 season 2 wins 1 loss 13 hold average ERA 2.04 in 59 games. According to Stats, a baseball statistics site, the average speed of a fastball last season was 137.1 km. However, his trajectory itself was unfamiliar to hitters, and the diversity of his pitching patterns stood out as he used sliders and curves evenly. 먹튀검증

KIA has entered an era of plenty of left-handed bullpens. There are existing left-handed setup man Lee Jun-young, Kim Dae-yu, second-year junior Choi Ji-min, rookie left-handed submariner Kwak Do-gyu and Kim Yu-shin, and Kim Ki-hoon, who seems to have been eliminated from the selection competition. Among them, Kim Dae-yu is rare.

The conclusion was that the type of pitching was not only unique, but also that the content of the pitching itself was substantial. In the spring camp practice game, it was good with 2 games, 2 innings, 1 strikeout, 1 hit and no runs. It’s unfortunate that KIA missed Park Dong-won, but it’s clear that the structure of the bullpen has improved with Kim Dae-yu.

Such Kim Dae-yu was not good in the demonstration game. He gave up 8 runs (6 earned) on 12 hits, 4 strikeouts, 4 walks, and 5 1/3 innings in 6 games. 2 holds 2 losses Average ERA 10.13. It wasn’t that the helmet’s shotgun was shaken, but he subtly took a hit. On the 21st, in a confrontation with LG, 5 hits and 3 runs, including 1 home run.

Even on the 27th, against Busan Lotte, the defense was shaken, such as committing an error in throwing. For reference, in 2021 and 2022, when they were very active, the demonstration game was also good with a zero ERA in 3 holds in 3 games (2021) and an ERA of 3.18 in 2 holds in 5 games. The start of the new team was creaky.

It remains to be seen whether coach Kim Jong-guk will put Kim Dae-yu in the opening entry or give him some time. Given the overflowing left-handed bullpen, there is no reason to forcefully appoint a pitcher who seems to have poor flow or pitching balance in the first team. He, of course, is used in the first team and can be expected to recover. What is clear is that Kim Dae-yu is a necessary piece for the KIA mound, and there is plenty of time to readjust it.
