“Are you going to replace catcher Seong-bin Son with a fast runner on first base with 1 point difference in the 9th inning?” Sutton’s answer is

High praise continues for Son Seong-bin (21), the third-year catcher of the Lotte Giants. As for stopping base stealing, he is demonstrating unrivaled power. Currently, Son Seong-bin is recording a 100% stealing rate (4 attempts and 4 interceptions).

The resignation LG match on the 9th was the best. Son Seong-bin put runner Oh Ji-hwan out on second base as a check to neutralize the opponent’s strategy in the 5th inning when the game was a close match. It completely changed the flow of the game. In the 7th inning, he stopped Bo-kyung Moon from stealing second base and continued his 100% interception rate. 

In the situation where Oh Ji-hwan was caught as a check in the 5th inning of the day, Son Seong-bin’s exchange (time to catch the ball and get it out of the mitt) was 0.70 seconds, pop time (time from receiving a pitch to throwing and passing it to the fielder) 1.87 seconds, and throwing speed was 135.4 km. was In the 7th inning, when Moon Bo-kyung was stopped from stealing, the exchange was 0.67 seconds and the pop time was 1.86 seconds. The throwing speed was 133.1 km. JT Realmuto (Philadelphia Phillies), who is called the best dog in the major leagues, has a pop time of 1.82 seconds for a throw to second base this year, and an exchange of 0.61 seconds. Son Seong-bin’s throw is one of the best in the major leagues.

LG became the biggest victim (?) of Son Seong-bin. LG coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop, who is playing baseball, acknowledged his ability to block theft, even though he is the opposing catcher. Coach Yeom said, “Son Seong-bin is the catcher, so even though I have a chance to play, I can’t readily sign a stolen base from the bench. (Because he stole twice against Son Seong-bin), he died easily both times. When Son Seong-bin sits as catcher, he must think a lot about the timing for the pitcher to throw a one-bound ball and let him run,” he said with a thumbs up. 

Coach Larry Sutton was asked by reporters ahead of the game against the NC Dinos at Changwon NC Park on the 12th, “If there is a fast runner on first base in the ninth inning, can you replace Yoo Kang-nam with Son Seong-bin?”

Director Sutton avoided an immediate answer. “If such a situation comes, it seems that it can be decided by various factors. Right now, our pitchers are throwing well and fast, keeping the runner in check with a quick slide step. At the same time, it is possible for Yoo Kang-nam to help catch the runner quickly somehow. “When I think about these things, I think it can be decided according to various circumstances.”스포츠토토

And I asked the same question to battery coach Choi Gyeong-cheol. He said that as a leader who directly oversees the catcher part, Yoo Kang-nam’s presence is still greater. Coach Choi expressed his opinion, “Not yet. (Yu) Gangnam is also capable enough, is a good catcher, and is the main catcher. In that situation, the ball combination cannot be ignored.”
