KIA’s next-generation ace who received a stinging glance from Ohtani… 151km KKK ‘show off building materials’ 

2 minutes, 10 seconds Read

KIA Eui-ri Lee (21) had a comeback match after finishing the WBC. On the 19th, he took the mound as the third pitcher against Doosan Gwangju in an exhibition game, and won a relief victory with 4 hits (1 home run), 3 strikeouts, 2 walks and 1 run in 3 innings. He mixed a changeup, slider, and curveball with a fastball of 151 km.

Eui-ri Lee was not good at the WBC. He pitched against Japan and pitched 0.1 innings, giving up 3 walks, 1 strikeout and no runs. There was also a scene in which Ohtani glared at Yi Eui-ri by using a threatening phrase close to sand dunes at Shohei Ohtani (LA Angels). It should be seen that it was a strategy based on the pitching pattern rather than intentional. What is clear is that Lee Eui-ri’s condition was not good that day.안전놀이터

Eui-ri Lee pitched in the bullpen at KIA Champions Field in Gwangju on the 17th, when there was no demonstration game. And on the 19th, I stepped on the mound. He pitched in relief, but he worked on raising his pitch count, throwing 56 pitches. However, he still didn’t seem to be in 100% condition. As soon as he came to the mound, he was hit by a solo shot by Shin Sung-hyun, and he had only 29 strikes. In the 7th inning, 2nd out, 1st and 2nd base crisis, center fielder Kim Ho-ryeong’s help was also received.

Eui-ri Lee succeeded in winning the long-awaited 10 wins in the 2022 season. However, the last two years have not completely solved the command issue. If you throw all your might, you can throw a fastball in the middle of 150km, and your game management ability is high, but if the command is shaken, the pitch itself is a style that comes out subtly.

Coach Kim Jong-guk said, “Among the young players, how many players can compete in both the Olympics and the WBC? Lee Eui-ri will get better in the future.” There is a high possibility that he will become the best left-hander in the KBO League if he gains experience and, based on that experience, gives stable pitches through constant feedback. He is still a pitcher who needs to experience and show more in the KBO League.

Average 147km and top 151km. KIA has an obligation to develop Lee Eui-ri well. He secured a starting spot this season as well. However, the pitch build-up was late due to going to the WBC. It is expected to start the season as the 4th starter after one or two more appearances in the remaining demonstration games.
