“Why did Moon Dong-ju change the 70th pitch? A pitcher who will make Korean baseball fun in the future” Coach Subero

“There are many days to entertain Korean baseball fans in the future.”

Beyond Hanwha, fireballer Moon Dong-ju (19), a super-prospect in the KBO league, opened the second-year season vigorously. On the 6th, his first appearance of the season, against Daegu Samsung, he reported his first win of the season with a good pitch with 5 innings, 1 hit, 1 walk, 4 strikeouts and no runs. The victory was more meaningful as it broke Hanwha’s opening three-game losing streak. 

On this day, Moon Dong-ju made full use of curves (26), sliders (10), and changeups (3), centering on fastballs (31) with a maximum distance of 159 km and an average of 152 km. Not only his strong fastball, but also his breaking ball was well executed, and he had an advantageous count. He ran rapidly from the last out count in the first inning to the 5th inning with 13 consecutive batters. 

Moon Dong-ju was replaced as soon as he completed 5 innings with 70 pitches. He deserved to go one more inning, but the baseball managed by Hanwha coach Carlos Subero was active from the first appearance of the season.메이저놀이터 Head coach Subero said at a meeting with reporters ahead of the home opener against SSG in Daejeon on the 7th, “I replaced Dong-ju Moon early for inning management. It’s still early in the season, and he doesn’t need to make a lot of pitches. He will bring it up slowly without rushing to the 100 pitch,” he said. 

Not only this day’s game, but throughout the season, Moon Dong-ju’s special management continues. Coach Subero said, “We will increase the innings by 20-25% from last year. He tried to make him throw less than 100 innings last year, including the education league, but this year, I think it will be around 120 to 125 innings. We will check the exact figures again and let you know.” 

Regarding the contents of Moon Dong-ju’s first pitch, coach Subero said, “It showed a very good performance. All four pitches are effective. He pitched without waste,” he said. “He is a pitcher with a lot to show in the future. He has a lot left to please Korean baseball fans. He doesn’t have to be in a hurry to go fast. He can go slowly, managing carefully.”
