Kim Yun-sik (23, LG Twins), who had a career high season, was definitely rewarded.
In a press release on the 3rd, LG announced that “out of the 45 contract renewal targets in 2023, we have completed annual salary contracts with 44 people, excluding Song Eun-beom.” Among the fielders, infielder Moon Bo-kyung (23) recorded the highest increase rate of +150%, from 68 million won to 170 million won. For pitchers, Kim Yun-sik showed the highest rate of increase with +114.3%, and received 70 million won to 150 million won.
Kim Yun-sik went back and forth between the starter and the bullpen until the 2021 season. He actually spent more time in the bullpen. He showed potential by recording 7 wins, 4 losses and 1 hold in 66⅔ innings in the 2021 season. And ahead of last season, he emerged as a candidate for the 5th start along with Son Joo-young (25) and Lim Jun-hyung (23), and fierce competition in the off-season.
He was given the fewest chances in exhibition matches. Lim Jun-hyung took the mound in the most 3 games and pitched 11 innings, followed by Son Ju-young with 6 innings and Kim Yun-shik with only 3 innings. However, Joo-Young Son left due to an elbow injury, and Jun-Hyung Lim was sluggish, and the airflow began to change.
Yunshik Kim did not miss the opportunity that came to him. He began to increase his innings little by little, and while accumulating quality starts (3 earned runs or less in 6 starting innings), he became the final winner. He retained the starting position until the end of the season, ending the season as a de facto full-time starter.
Kim Yun-sik’s final performance last year was 23 matches, 8 wins, 5 losses, and an average ERA of 3.31 in 114⅓ innings. He started once in Kiwoom and the playoffs and recorded 3 hits, 3 strikeouts and 1 run in 5⅔ innings, showing his standout in a big game.
His outstanding performance continued, which led to his promotion to the national team. Kim Yun-shik joined the World Baseball Classic (WBC) in 2023 and proudly made his name as one of the five left-handed pitchers on board the national team. 카지노사이트
Yunshik Kim had a brilliant season last year. He showed off his potential enough to be compared to the team’s legendary left-handed pitcher, ‘Wild Horse’ Sang-hoon Lee (43). He also received certain rewards in many ways, including his first billion-dollar annual salary and promotion to the national team. Attention is focusing on whether Kim Yun-sik will be able to make another outstanding performance this year.
