A practice match against SSG Landers held on the 3rd at Kochida Stadium, Okinawa, Japan. Attention was focused on the two high school rookie players of the Hanwha Eagles. Right-handed pitcher Kim Seo-hyeon (19) and infielder Moon Hyun-bin (19). He is a designated player in the 1st and 2nd rounds of the 2023 rookie draft.
Kim Seo-hyun started as a relief pitcher in the 7th inning, and Moon Hyun-bin started as a second baseman in the 2nd inning. The two players drew attention side by side. Kim Seo-Hyun recorded 1 hit and 1 strikeout against 4 batters in 1 inning. His highest fastball velocity was 153 km/h, with an average of 152 km. Even in his first professional appearance, he did not shy away from defeating opponents.
Moon Hyun-bin took the place of Jung Eun-won. The defense was good. It was impressive to see his calm handling of difficult batting balls in reverse motion. He retired with an infield grounder in two at-bats.
The coaching staff and seniors praised the 19-year-old high school rookie for not being like a rookie. Coach Carlos Subero praised him, saying, “I don’t think I’m a rookie just by looking at how he walks. He’s full of confidence like a first-team player. A professional player needs that kind of look.”
Oh Seon-jin (34), the best veteran of the field, said of Moon Hyun-bin, “It seems like a player who came to prepare to become a professional first-team player. I have never seen such a rookie.” Director Subero also pours out praise when the story of Moon Hyun-bin comes out. He said, “He has a high possibility of becoming a player representing Korean baseball.”
He has been preparing for the season in first team camp side by side. They are not just prospects, but resources that can actually help the team this season. 온라인카지노
Immediately after joining last year, Kim Seo-hyun said, “The finishing pitcher who decides the game is cool. I want to become a finishing pitcher like senior Koo Dae-sung.” If he maintains the same pace as he does now, he could become a first-team main player from his first year as a pro. He lightly throws a ball as fast as 150 km/h.
Moon Hyun-bin, who can play second base and shortstop, can be used as an infield backup.
After the game against SSG on the 3rd, Kim Seo-hyun said, “I am very satisfied because I did not allow long hits without conceding a point.
A high school rookie who hasn’t even taken his first step yet. He is likely to face many variables. Still, the two are strong and full of confidence, so I look forward to the future of Hanwha.
