Ahead of the 2023 season, Kim Min-woo (28, Hanwha)’s goal was to play as long an inning as possible as a starting pitcher. Kim Min-woo has consistently achieved these goals as Hanwha’s native starting pitcher in recent years. 온라인카지노
Kim Min-woo, who completed the prescribed innings (144 innings) for the first time since his debut in 2021, created a career high with 14 wins, 10 losses and a 4.00 ERA in 29 games (155.1 innings) that year. The following year, he was responsible for 163 innings, more than this in 29 games. He continued his appearance as an “inningser,” but he only won six games (11 losses), and his ERA rose to 4.36.
Kim Min-woo sought to rebound this season. Everything didn’t go his way, but he took the mound with the intention of adding to the team at least a little. An unexpected injury stopped his race. Kim Min-woo started against Sajik Lotte on June 14 and was replaced by the next pitcher due to shoulder pain after one inning. He was diagnosed with a ruptured right shoulder muscle during a detailed examination. It was a major injury that required about three months of rehabilitation.
The rehabilitation process was smooth. Kim Min-woo, who showed a rapid recovery speed, pitched in relief in a Futures League game against LG on the 2nd and recorded one scoreless inning, enhancing his sense of practice. Three days later, he started against Doosan and pitched two scoreless innings. However, it is unlikely that he will be seen in the first division for the rest of the season. Kim Min-woo will participate in the education league in Japan next month. It is a decision with next season in mind.
Kim Min-woo, who met at Hanwha’s second division training ground in Seosan, Chungcheongnam-do on the 20th, said, “I personally thought this year was an important season, but I was most disappointed that it was stopped due to injuries.”
It’s been a season where he doesn’t have any luck. Kim Min-woo previously failed to play for a while after being hit by an assault ball on his right elbow against Incheon SSG on May 14. Looking back on that time, he said, “I’ve been in charge of long innings for the past few years as a starting pitcher, and I was greedy to play more innings this season,” adding, “In the meantime, I was very sad to be hit by the ball and hurt.”
His goal for next season was the “inning” again. Kim Min-woo said, “The goal of the new season has always been the same. As a starting pitcher, I play a season without injury and take charge of many innings, he said. “From now on, I will make up for the shortcomings and become a pitcher who will help the team without getting hurt next year.”
