Positive signal at the second start of the demonstration game… Over 90 miles per hour on a fastball
(Seoul = Yonhap News) Reporter Choi In-young = Although he still struggled on the mound, the American media also admitted that Kim Gwang-hyun (33, St. Louis Cardinals) is getting better.
Kim Gwang-Hyun started against the Miami Marlins at the US Pro Baseball Major League demonstration game held at Jupiter Rogerdin Stadium in Florida, USA on the 9th (Korean time), and recorded a total of 2⅓ innings, 6 hits, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts, and 4 runs.
It is Kim Gwang-hyun’s second demonstration game this year.
On the 4th, Kim Gwang-hyun, who struggled with four innings, four hits, two walks, two strikeouts, and four runs (three runs), climbed the mound twice in the New York Mets.
Kim Gwang-hyun, who had been scored with 4 runs after ⅔ innings in the first inning, started again at the start of the second inning and threw 1 ⅔ more innings until 2 outs in the third inning.
This is because there are rules for major league demonstrations that allow the replacement of pitchers to be re-introduced.
After being replaced without finishing the first inning, Kim Gwang-hyun tried to find a balance by looking back at the time he did well last year at Dougout. Thanks to that, he pitched better when he started again.
MLB.com described it as “when he came back, he was more Kim Gwang-hyun,” and “it was the appearance of a newcomer who appeared like a comet in 2020, not a pitcher who struggled in the first inning.”
St. Louis coach Mike Silt also said, “After the change,’KK’ (Kim Kwang-hyun’s nickname) seemed to have gotten into the rhythm. I was closer to him.”
In fact, Kim Gwang-hyun threw 27 balls during the first inning ⅔. However, in the second inning, she ended cleanly with 11 pitches, and in the third inning, she threw 10 balls to get two outcounts.
Kim Gwang-Hyun expressed regret for arrest after finishing the Mets on the 4th. At that time, the average fastball arrest was only 87.9 miles per hour (141.5 km). However, on this day, the average fastball speed climbed to 88.8 miles per hour (142.9 km), with a maximum of 91.2 miles (146.8 km).
St. Louis Post-Dispatch said, “Kim Kwang-hyun’s arrest was low last week, but he passed 90 miles per hour several times this day. But the verse did not come true as he intended.”
MLB.com analyzed that “Kim Gwang-hyun raised his constraints according to the process he had planned.”
After the game, Gwang-Hyun Kim said, “I am not satisfied, but I think it was an opportunity to improve in the next game in that it was better than the last game.”
