SSG Landers is showing the potential of a ‘defending champion’. It seemed to fall into a swamp with 4 consecutive losses, but succeeded in 4 consecutive wins. The driving force behind the change can be attributed to the tighter waist.
The hitting feeling of key hitters such as Choi Jeong and Hanyu-seom is also returning, but it is necessary to look at SSG’s bullpen. Until last year, he was pointed out by the uneasy finisher and the uneasy bullpen. Last year, the SSG bullpen ERA was 4.68, ranking sixth. His blown saves were 23, the second most after the Hanwha Eagles’ 25.
This year is different. The average ERA of the SSG team is second (3.32) following the LG Twins (3.22). Among them, the salvation ERA is 2.08, which is the first overall. It is lower than LG (3.61), which has the best bullpen in the league with Ko Woo-seok, Jung Woo-young, and Kim Jin-seong.
There is not a single foreign starter, but the mound is solid. In particular, he does not get pushed back in the bullpen fight. During the last 4 consecutive wins, the game was within 3 points, and they all won. After winning 8-5 in the Suwon KT Wiz expedition on the 20th, they swept all three weekend matches with Kiwoom Heroes held at the Incheon home stadium. It was a game by 2 points on the 21st, 1 point on the 22nd, and 2 points on the 23rd.
Closer pitcher Seo Jin-yong had 3 consecutive fights and made all the saves. With 8 saves as of the 24th, it is the first place in the league in this category. What is even more surprising is that the average ERA in 10 games is 0.00.
The relationship between starting and finishing Seo Jin-yong is also strong. From veteran senior veteran to rookie Yi Ro-wun, they are doing their part. Left-hander Baek Seung-gun and right-hander Choi Min-joon are middle pitchers that coach Kim Won-hyeong has trusted since camp.
Noh Kyung-eun is recording an average ERA of 2.79 with 1 win, 2 saves and 4 holds in 10 games. He is tied for 4th place in the hold section. Left-hander Baek Seung-gun is recording an average ERA of 3.52 with 1 loss and 2 holds in 7 games. Baek Seung-gun has gained great trust in the bullpen this year after being discharged from the military in September of last year. 토토사이트
Right-hander Choi Min-joon has 3 wins and 2 holds in 11 games, and an average ERA of 2.38, and right-hander rookie Lee Ro-wun recorded his first hold in Suwon KT on the 20th and held for two days in a row until the match against Kiwoom on the 21st. He has 2 holds and an earned run average of 2.45 in 6 games.
There is no hold yet, but the existence of right-handed sidearm Park Min-ho, who is recording an average ERA of 0.00 in 4 games, cannot be overlooked. He’s a pitcher that can be thrown in anytime when he’s winning, when he needs to chase. He’s still a small sample, but he’s also a pitcher who can play a key role in the SSG bullpen.
I have only played 18 games. Although they have to spend a long season ahead, it is worth paying attention to SSG’s ability to compete for first place with LG at the beginning of the season, and the bullpen, which has become stronger with that competitiveness.
