Deepening curiosity about the rookie king… There is a hint in the Festival of Stars


Pay attention to the morning stars!’

The KBO League is fighting fiercely for rankings in a fresh composition of ‘2nd round – 7th middle – 1st weak’. Now that the halfway point of the 2023 season is just around the corner, what catches the eye is the performance of numerous newcomers who are heating up the league. There are a lot of rookies who have become the main players in each team. Naturally, great interest is focused on the direction of the Rookie of the Year this year.토토사이트주소

There is a hint in the roster for the ‘Festival of the Stars’ all-star game to be held at Sajik Baseball Stadium in Busan on the 15th. A total of 16 players have been honored with the first all-star game in their lives, and there are a total of 4 new stars who are eligible for the Rookie of the Year. Among them, we need to pay attention to the three pitchers: Hanwha Moon Dong-ju, LG Park Myung-geun, and KIA Choi Ji-min.

Moon Dong-ju is considered to be the most advanced in the race. Wearing the Hanwha uniform last year, he prepared for his future by concentrating on recovering from injuries instead of overdoing pitches. He showed reason for waiting by cruising with 5 wins and 6 losses and an average ERA of 3.69 in 14 games this season. In the game against KIA in Gwangju on April 12, he marked 160.1 km of speed, the highest speed ever for a domestic player, and the momentum continued until June (3 wins and 1 loss, average ERA of 2.14). Since he has the advantage of being a starting pitcher, the key is to continue the flow as it is.

Park Myung-geun is a hit product for the twin bullpens this season. 2023 Draft 3rd round 27th overall, I received a rather late nomination, but sows a scary ball like a show. He went 4 wins, 5 holds, 5 saves and an earned run average of 3.25 in 35 games. He was reborn as a sure-win group by spraying snake fastballs approaching 150 km with a side arm. Above all, he shows spirit and courage unlike a high school graduate rookie, and is already being mentioned as the next LG closer.

Choi Ji-min is the epitome of metamorphosis. Last year, when he announced his debut, his fastball average speed was only 141.1 km. However, after steady off-season training and supplementation, he transformed into a fire bowler who will cover 150km this year. He has 2 wins, 2 losses, 3 saves, 5 holds, and an ERA of 1.88 in 33 games. Having established himself as the core of the tiger bullpen, he proudly entered the final entry of the Hangzhou Asian Games along with Moon Dong-ju.

In addition, Yun Dong-hee (Lotte) and Yoon Young-cheol (KIA), who unfortunately failed to participate in the All-Star Game, are also making their names in the race. However, if it is the report card now, it is highly likely that it will actually be a three-way match between the three All-Stars. Who will be the morning star who will laugh at the final destination?
