“It’s becoming a great strength”.
SSG Landers left-hander Lim Jun-seop (34) won the first hold after transferring and received sincere congratulations from the command tower.
On the 10th,메이저사이트in the match against the KIA Tigers held at Gwangju-Kia Champions Field, he pitched in the 8th inning and blocked one inning without a run, leading the team to a 5-3 victory.
As soon as he took the mound, he induced Choi Hyeong-woo, the hottest player in the KIA, to ground to first base. He got a right-handed hit by Socrates, but caught Byeon Woo-hyuk with a double hit to second base and lightly blocked one inning.
It was the first hold in 1002 days since the Gocheok Kiwoom match on August 11, 2020.
For Lim Jun-seop, KIA is his family. He received a drop in the 2nd round of the 2013 Rookie of the Year nomination (15th overall) and wore the Tigers uniform. He was expected that much.
He played as a starter and swingman in 2013 and 2014, winning nine games. He pitched well with a high RBI. However, he did not settle down as a starter because he did not have a good pitch.
In 2015, he transferred to Hanwha in a match trade with Yoo Chang-sik and Kim Kwang-soo, but there was no significant activity. He passed his 30s before he knew it and was eventually released after the season last year.
SSG, which needs a left-hander, went through a test and wore a uniform. He wasn’t his main force enough to greet the opening in the 2nd division. He played two games for the Futures and was called up to the first team on 18 April.
Appearing in 9 games and digesting 8⅓ innings, he is active as a trustworthy man with an average ERA of 2.16. He has emerged as a valuable left-handed bullpen for the team. It was a reversal of being a student with an annual salary of 40 million won.
Manager Kim Won-hyeong mentioned Lim Jun-seop in particular after the match. He gave a heartfelt applause, saying, “Recently, Jun-seop has been throwing a very good ball. Thanks to him, he is a great help to the bullpen. He recorded a hold in three years, and I want to congratulate him.
