“If you build your body well, you will immediately feel powerful.”
Samsung Lions coach Park Jin-man gave high praise to Yook Sun-yeop, who wore a Samsung uniform as the 4th overall pick in the 2024 KBO Rookie Draft held at the Grand Ballroom of the Westin Chosun Hotel in Sogong-dong, Jung-gu, Seoul on the 14th.메이저사이트
Coach Park Jin-man, who met with reporters ahead of the KT Wiz match held at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu on the 14th, said, “I saw Yook Seon-yeop in a video even before he was drafted. Because he is tall, he has good RBI and a flexible body. He also seems to have good control and command. “He is a player who can be used as a force immediately if he builds his body well,” he said.
Yook Seon-yeop is a right-handed pitcher from Jangchung High School with a sturdy physique of 190 cm and 90 kg. Samsung said, “He is a player who has all the conditions to grow into a starting pitcher, such as the ability to use a fast ball, breaking ball, and stamina.” He added, “With his physique and excellent work style, he is expected to play a part in the starting lineup in the future.”
Coach Park Jin-man said, “First of all, I continued to play as a starter. Still, you’ll have to come and check it out to find out, but based on the video, I think he could be a good starter. “If I prepare well, I will show a good performance in the pros,” he said.
In the second round, right-handed pitcher Park Jun-yong from Kyungbuk High School and Suseong University was selected. Samsung said, “We have stable control and game management capabilities. He has excellent inning ability, so we plan to develop him into a starting pitcher in the future. “I highly value the fact that his skills have developed at an ideal pace after entering college,” he said.
Director Park Jin-man said, “Park Jun-yong is also similar to Yook Seon-yeop. He has a high RBI. He has power on the ball and some command. He is a player with control. He also expressed his expectations, saying, “I see him as flexible.”
