SSG Landers right-hander Seo Sang-joon showed good pitching at the Futures All-Star game and foreshadowed his future performance.
Northern All-Stars (Hanwha Eagles, LG Twins, Goyang Heroes, SSG, Doosan Bears) Seo Sang-jun played the Futures All-Star Game against Southern All-Stars (Sangmu, NC Dinos, Samsung Lions, Lotte Giants, KT Wiz, KIA Tigers) held at Sajik Baseball Stadium in Busan on the 14th. The team took the mound in the top of the ninth inning with a 9-7 lead.
Seo Sang-joon started off anxiously after getting a right-handed hit by the first batter, Jo Min-seong. But he didn’t waver. He sighed as he treated Chun Seong-ho as a shortstop grounder. Then, he induced pinch hitter Lee Jun-hee to double hit the shortstop, ending the game without conceding a run. After making the save, he was honored with the best pitcher award after the game.
Seo Sang-jun, from Dongil Joongang Elementary School, Yarrow Middle School, and Yeongyeong High School, was nominated by SK Wyverns (now SSG) in the 2nd 7th round (total No. 66) in the 2019 rookie draft.안전놀이터추천
He, who did not show any special appearance until the 2019-2021 season, took his place as a winning team for this year’s SSG Futures team after returning from military service. His performance is 2 wins, 3 saves and 1 hold with an ERA of 2.00 in 18 appearances.
Currently, SSG’s bullpen is solid (bullpen ERA 3.31), but it has the disadvantage of being a bit older. This could act as a weakness in the second half when stamina is important. If Seo Sang-joon continues to perform as well as he did on this day and rises to the first team, it can be a great strength for SSG.
Will Seo Sang-joon, who made his name known in the Futures All-Star Game, appear in the first team soon? Many baseball fans are paying attention.
