Before the match between Hanwha and Doosan in the 2022 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the afternoon of the 7th, Hanwha’s pitching coach told Moon Dong-joo, “It will make you very uncomfortable. Let’s pitch in the first and second base situations. The date of Hanwha Eagles’ “Super Rookie” Moon Dong-joo’s appearance has been confirmed as the 9th. It’s his first start. Moon Dong-joo played as a bullpen in nine games this year and recorded a low record of 6.94 ERA with two holds.
Since high school, Moon Dong-joo has been recognized for his fast ball over 150 kilometers among scouts. And he wore the Hanwha Eagles uniform as the first draft pick in last year’s rookie draft. Before the match on the 7th, Hanwha manager Carlos Subero said, “Moon Dong-joo is scheduled to take the mound on Thursday (9th). “I will throw up to 50 pitches,” he said. Moon Dong-joo’s expression, who throws the ball with various pitches in the bullpen, was surprisingly calm. He threw fastballs, breaking balls, and sliders sequentially. And the pitching coach himself stood at bat next to the catcher and conducted the simulation. 먹튀검증
Moon Dong-joo plans to gradually increase the number of pitches after throwing up to 50 pitches in his first appearance. “We need to adjust according to the contents of the mound, but we plan to increase it to as little as 10 pitches and as much as 15 pitches in each start on the premise that we showed good pitching,” manager Subero added. Much attention is being paid to Moon Dong-joo’s first selection, who was mentioned as a candidate for the Rookie of the Year under the nickname of “Monster Rookie.”
