KIA decides to take a stand after repeated poor performances…’Ace’ Yang Hyun-jong deleted from first-team roster

 KIA Tigers left-handed ace Yang Hyeon-jong was eventually eliminated from the first team entry.

KIA sent Yang Hyeon-jong to the second group with Kim Ki-hoon ahead of the home game against Kiwoom Heroes held at Gwangju-KIA Champions Field on the 16th. The players called up to fill the positions of the two players are Kim Jae-yeol and Park Jun-pyo.

As expected, the name that stands out is Yang Hyeon-jong. He took the mound as a starting pitcher in the match against Kiwoom on the 15th, 메이저사이트 and suffered 7 losses in the season as he collapsed with 6 hits (1 home run), 4 walks, 5 strikeouts and 7 runs in 5⅔ innings. In particular, in the 4th inning, when the score was 0-0, Kim Jun-wan’s push-out walk, followed by Kim Hye-seong’s full run, led to the team’s defeat. Yang Hyeon-jong’s average ERA rose from 4.01 to 4.39.

Yang Hyeon-jong’s performance this season, including this day’s game, was 5-7 with an average ERA of 4.39 in 19 games and 106⅔ innings, which is somewhat sluggish compared to previous years.

In fact, he was not expected to have any major problems even at the beginning of the season. Yang Hyeon-jong pitched in 8 games for two months after the season opened, and he threw 6 or more innings in 5 games. He pitched 8 innings against the SSG Landers in Gwangju on May 9th.

However, it was in June that there were signs of unease. Yang Hyeon-jong became a losing pitcher with a large number of runs by conceding 9 runs in 2 innings and 7 runs in 4⅓ innings in the match against Lotte Giants in Busan on June 2 and SSG Landers in Gwangju on the 7th, respectively. He also conceded runs, but as he went down without even filling 5 innings, an ‘emergency’ took place on the KIA mound.

Yang Hyeon-jong, who failed to win the next two games, seemed to have succeeded in rebounding with a match against KT Wiz in Gwangju on June 24 (6 innings, 1 run), but he did not win even once in the last 6 matches, including the match against LG Twins in Jamsil on the 30th. He went down the mound without filling 6 innings. Yang Hyeon-jong, who achieved double-digit quality starts every season from 2015 to last year, has only six quality starts this season.

Various analyzes are coming out about Yang Hyeon-jong’s sluggish performance, but most of the opinions are that it will be physically burdensome in that he has digested so many innings. After he debuted in the first team in 2007, he took on the role as a starting pitcher in earnest from 2009, and has been reborn as the league’s leading inning eater by throwing more than 100 innings every season except for 2012. In particular, from 2014 to last year, he filled 170 innings without missing a single season, and at the same time achieved a double-digit multiplier.

Yang Hyeon-jong, who challenged the American stage, recorded an average ERA of 3.85 in 30 games and 175⅓ innings in 30 games and 175⅓ innings last year, his first season back in Korea. Compared to his prime, it would be a lie if he said he had no regrets, but just being able to play a lot of innings was a big help to the team.

But now the story has changed. Even digesting 5 innings is not easy, and considering his age, it is unrealistic to expect the same skills as before. In the end, KIA decided that it was better for Hyeon-jong Yang to take a breather than to continue rotating, and changed the first-team entry.

Yang Hyeon-jong, who has started reorganization, is scheduled to return to the first team after 10 days, and the pitcher to fill Yang Hyeon-jong’s vacancy has not been decided. At the time of Yang Hyeon-jong, the possibility of KIA operating the mound as a ‘bullpen day’ is also open. For KIA, who has to fight in the top 5 right away, I just hope that Ace will take good care of his body and mind and announce a successful comeback.

On the other hand, Ariel Furado, a foreign pitcher from Kiwoom, was dropped from the entry for rest, and bullpen pitcher Ha Young-min was promoted to the first team. SSG Landers canceled Ahn Sang-hyun while registering infielder Kim Chan-hyung in the entry, but the reason was a finger injury. SSG coach Kim Won-hyung said, “Ahn Sang-hyun received a fungo and an irregular bounce occurred and hit his right finger, and as a result of the examination, it was said that it was fractured. I think there is,” he sighed.
