The reason why Hanwha fell to 10th from the beginning of the season is due to the sluggishness of foreign players. Birch Smith, who was expected to be the first starter, was released after one game due to shoulder pain, and batter Brian O’Grady went down 메이저사이트to the second team after an extremely poor hitting. 

Another foreign pitcher, Felix Pena, is also struggling to find stability. Pena, who joined as a substitute in July of last year and succeeded in renewing the contract, raised the pace smoothly enough to be selected as the club’s own pitcher MVP during spring camp. 

However, after the opening, the average ERA of 5 games (23 innings) 1-3 is only 5.48. He has such poor inning digestibility that his average pitch per game does not exceed 5 innings. His pitches shook with 13 walks and 4 wild throws in 23 innings. The ball is completely out of the hand and the ball that goes behind the batter comes out one every game. 

On the 28th, against Daejeon NC, Pena lost the game with 4 hits (1 home run), 3 walks, 1 walk, 5 strikeouts and 4 runs in 4 innings. He pitched well until the 3rd inning with no runs, but in the 4th inning, he suddenly piled up runners and hit a come-from-behind home run to Kim Joo-won. Although the number of pitches was only 75, manager Carlos Subero started the bullpen by removing Pena from the start of the 5th inning. 

Regarding the timing of Pena’s replacement ahead of the NC game on the 29th, coach Subero said, “The 4th inning was not good. The bullpen was also in a state of rest, and he replaced Pena to win the game.” 

Coach Subero continued, “With one foreign pitcher missing, our dependence on Pena has increased. That would have been burdensome from Pena’s point of view,” he said. He has to trust his ball and throw it. Not only Pena, but all of our players showed a good performance in the demonstration game. Even during the season, we will be able to play good baseball only when we express our abilities.” 

On this day, Hanwha started the starting lineup in order of Noh Soo-gwang (left fielder) Moon Hyun-bin (shortstop) Noh Si-hwan (3rd baseman) Chae Eun-seong (1st baseman) Jung Eun-won (2nd baseman) Park Sang-eon (catcher) Jang Jin-hyuk (right fielder) Lee Seong-gon (designated hitter) Lee Won-seok (center fielder). made up The starting pitcher is Nam Ji-min.
