Sidearm pitcher Bae Min-seo (25), who moved from NC to Hanwha through the second round of the draft, is starting over.
Bae Min-seo, who retired from the Commerce in June last year, was injured shortly after joining the original NC team. He was playing catch for the Futures team when he was hit in the eye by a foul ball that came out of nowhere. It was an unexpected accident, bad luck. His season ended while he recovered in the rehabilitation center. On July 27, Bae Min-seo made his final appearance in the Futures League against Samsung.
But there was more to come for Bae Min-seo after his season ended in vain. On November 22, he was selected by Hanwha with the 13th overall pick in the third round of the second draft. 온라인카지노사이트 It’s a shame to leave NC, where he played for five years after joining in 2019, but he’ll be able to start over with a new team after his injury misfortune last year.
Wearing a Hanwha jersey with the number 39 on the back, Bae Min-seo said, “It’s still awkward because it’s a new team. When I was nominated by Hanwha, I was nervous, but I thought, “This is a new opportunity, so let’s do it right.” “I was also disappointed that my first professional jersey was NC. Ryu Jin-wook and Shin Min-hyuk, who were close friends, were also disappointed.”

A right-handed sidearm, was drafted by the NC with the 37th overall pick in the 2019 second round, went 1-0 with a 5.68 ERA and 37 strikeouts in 55 games (2 starts-63⅓ innings) in four seasons in the first team. While not a standout, he showed promise in 2021, going 1-0 with a 4.92 ERA in 32 games (40 innings). His first eight games of the season were highlighted by an 11 1/3 inning no-hitter.
He pitched well in the Futures League last year, going 5-2 with a 2.75 ERA in 21 games (19⅔ innings). Hanwha selected Bae because of his fastball, which tops out at 149 mph and averages 143 mph, and his ability to throw a changeup against lefties. With Kang Jae-min, who has been a mainstay in the bullpen for the past four years, set to enter the military after undergoing Tommy John surgery, the team is short on side-arm pitchers and hopes Bae will fill the void.

“Bae Min-seo has a good changeup. She has a good changeup and is still young, which is the type of side arm we lack,” he said, adding that he expects her to improve in the future.
“I was good in 2021 before I went to the army. My speed was up to 149km/h, and I think my pitches were good. My changeup also improved a lot while practicing at Sangsung. I tried robot umpiring (in the Futures League), and they called a lot of changeups for strikes,” he said with a hint of confidence.
Bae Min-seo, who was welcomed by his former teammates Choi In-ho, Bae Dong-hyun, and Oh Dong-wook, said, “My goal is for the team to reach the postseason this year. Personally, 카지노사이트 I have a win but no hold yet. I want to get a hold,” he said, adding, “I will try to establish myself in the new team. After being hit by a pitch, I had to rest from August until the final camp. I’m doing individual workouts now, and I want to throw fast (in practice). I’m determined to work hard and throw well.”
