By the way, is that player a rookie? Coaching staff – Surprising seniors, high school rookie Kim Seo-hyun and Moon Hyun-bin

A practice match against SSG Landers held on the 3rd at Kochida Stadium, Okinawa, Japan. Attention was focused on the two high school rookie players of the Hanwha Eagles. Right-handed pitcher Kim Seo-hyeon (19) and infielder Moon Hyun-bin (19). He is a designated player in the 1st and 2nd rounds of the 2023 rookie draft.

Kim Seo-hyun started as a relief pitcher in the 7th inning, and Moon Hyun-bin started as a second baseman in the 2nd inning. The two players drew attention side by side. Kim Seo-Hyun recorded 1 hit and 1 strikeout against 4 batters in 1 inning. His highest fastball velocity was 153 km/h, with an average of 152 km. Even in his first professional appearance, he did not shy away from defeating opponents.

Moon Hyun-bin took the place of Jeong Eun-won. The defense was good. It was impressive to see her calmly handle difficult batting balls in reverse motion. He retired with an infield grounder in two at-bats.

The coaching staff and seniors praised the 19-year-old high school rookie for not being like a rookie. Manager Carlos Subero praised him, saying, “I can’t believe he is a rookie just by looking at his walking. He is full of confidence like a first-team player. A professional player needs that look.”

Oh Seon-jin (34), the best veteran of the field, said of Moon Hyun-bin, “It seems like a player who came to prepare to become a professional first-team player. I have never seen such a rookie.” Director Subero also pours out praise when the story of Moon Hyun-bin comes out. He said, “He has a high possibility of becoming a player representing Korean baseball.” 메이저사이트

Side by side, they prepared for the season at first-team camp. They are not just prospects, but resources that can actually help the team this season.

Immediately after joining last year, Kim Seo-hyun said, “The finishing pitcher who decides the game is cool. I want to become a finishing pitcher like senior Koo Dae-sung.” If he maintains the same pace as he does now, he could become a first-team main player from his first year as a pro. He lightly throws a ball as fast as 150 km/h.

Moon Hyun-bin, who can play second base and shortstop, can be used as an infield backup.

After the game against SSG on the 3rd, Kim Seo-hyun said, “I am very satisfied because I did not allow long hits without conceding a point.

A high school rookie who hasn’t even taken his first step yet. It is likely to face many variables. Still, the two are strong and full of confidence, so I look forward to the future of Hanwha.
