SSG Landers pitcher Moon Seung-won had both income and regret last year.
Moon Seung-won ended the 2021 season and underwent elbow ligament joint surgery. And in July of last year, about a year after the surgery, he returned to the first team. Moon Seung-won, who played as a starting pitcher from 2020, transformed into a bullpen pitcher and recorded an average ERA of 5.11 with 3 saves and 3 holds in 23 games.
Moon Seung-won’s fastball average speed of 147 km/h last year was higher than before the operation, but he experienced a record number soaring when he lost a lot of points in one game as he went out to the bullpen. This year’s position has not been decided yet, but he is determined to be better than last year, whether it be the starter or the bullpen. 메이저놀이터
As selected by SSG, Moon Seung-won, who departed for spring camp in Florida, USA through Incheon Airport on the 25th, met reporters at the airport and said, “Of course it should be better than last year. Last year, the average ERA was in the 5-point range. It should not be worse than last year.” I was confident
He revealed what he gained from last year’s season, saying, “Playing with the bullpen helped a lot. I got stronger as I went out a lot in tight situations. Whether it’s good or bad, I thought about how to get better.”
If Seung-Won Moon plays a part of the bullpen like last year, SSG will be able to get a quick finisher, and if he returns to the starting lineup, he can fill the right-hander position as a pillar of the domestic starting lineup along with Kwang-Hyun Kim, Jong-Hoon Park, and Won-Seok Oh. In December 2021, SSG showed expectations early by presenting a non-FA multi-year contract worth 5.5 billion won in total to Moon Seung-won, who is undergoing rehabilitation in December 2021.
Moon Seung-won said, “I threw it harder to get sick even though it hurt after throwing last year, but there was a blow the next day. This year, it’s the second year after surgery, so I think that kind of thing will decrease. I have to talk to the coach about my position. I plan to learn how to throw the ball and throw a breaking ball in the camp,” he said, revealing his determination to face the camp and season.
