“I don’t think just throwing a fast ball is a confident look.”
Samsung Lions right-handed pitcher Yang Chang-seop (24) is a promising player who will lead the Lions’ future. After graduating from Deoksu High School, Yang Chang-seop, who joined Samsung in the 2nd round of the 2nd round in 2018, played 19 games in his debut season (2018 season), recording 7 wins and 6 losses, showing his potential.
However, after that, he failed to draw a clear growth curve. In 2019, he missed a full season with an elbow injury. After that, he recorded an average ERA of 6.60 in 7 games in the 2020 season and 9 games in the 2021 season. Even in the 2022 season, he did not perform particularly well with 2 wins, 3 losses and 8.41 in 6 games.
Yang Chang-seop is preparing for the 2023 season by sweating heavily throughout the winter. He is constantly participating in team practice matches and gaining strength. He allowed 1 run in 2 innings against Nippon Ham on the 9th, and 2 strikeouts and no runs in 2 innings against Chunichi on the 12th.
On February 28, he took the mound as the team’s third pitcher in a practice match against the Lotte Giants held at Akama Stadium in Onna-son, Okinawa Prefecture, Japan. Although Samsung lost 3-6, Yang Chang-seop’s good fight was brilliant.

In the 5th inning, the lead hitter Koh Seung-min was treated with a straight hit to the second baseman and he got off to a clean start. He gave Jung-hoon a heavy hit, but Noh Jin-hyeok and Lee Jung-hoon were treated as criminal hits. he had no flaws.
Although the victorious pitcher in the practice game was lost due to Heo Yun-dong’s hunting in the 6th inning, Yang Chang-seop’s pitching, which was mentioned as a candidate for the 5th starter, was impressive.
After the game, Yang Chang-seop said, “Coach Kwon Oh-joon orders me to throw with confidence on the mound. He believes that simply throwing a fast ball is not a confident look. I think throwing the ball to the target without hesitation is a confident look. He will not dodge and let me throw the ball I want,” he said confidently.메이저사이트
On this day, he also shared a word about what he thought was lacking.
He said, “It’s a pity that I gave away a lot of balls from the first batter. He has to practice and throw more innings than he does now. I will work harder so that I can play well in the upcoming season.”
