KT takes care to reinforce depth “Pick the players you want according to the strategy beforehand”

The Korean baseball team KT Wiz prioritized depth in the 2024 KBO Draft.

KT selected a total of 11 players in the 2024 KBO Rookie Draft on Thursday at the Westin Chosun Seoul Hotel in Seoul. By position, the team selected six pitchers, two catchers, two infielders, and one outfielder.

“We endeavored to strengthen our depth by position according to the club’s mid- to long-term strategic roadmap,” said Nado Hyun, the team’s general manager. “We acquired the players we wanted according to the strategy we set in advance, and we expect all players to become professional players with skills and character.”스포츠토토

In the first round, the team selected Busan High School pitcher Won Sang-hyun with the seventh pick. Won is a right-handed pitcher with excellent athleticism, a fastball that tops out at 150km/h and a reliable changeup. The club introduced him as “an immediate power pitcher with excellent game management skills such as aggressive pitching on the mound.”

The team then selected Gangneung High pitcher Yuk Cheong-myung in the second round, and Sunlin Internet High pitcher Kim Min-seong and Dongwon University pitcher Choi Yoon-seo in the third and fourth rounds, respectively.

Won Sang-hyun, who was selected in the first round, said, “I’m really happy to join the powerhouse KT,” adding, “I dreamed of becoming a starting pitcher while watching KT’s Choi Min-joon, and I’m excited to have him as a teammate and senior. I will work hard to lead the KT starting staff in the future alongside Choi Min-joon.”

Second-round pick Yuk Cheong-myung said, “I’m happy to enter the professional stage that I’ve been dreaming of.” “I’m proud to be a part of a strong KBO team and will be a player who can contribute to the team,” he said confidently.
