Kiwoom Heroes ‘transfer student’ right-hander Kim Dong-kyu will make his starting debut against his hometown team LG Twins on the 13th.Kiwoom coach Hong Won-ki met with reporters at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 12th and explained the background, saying, “As a young player, you feel a lot of pressure, but when that fearful feeling turns into confidence, the energy is tremendous.” “I think we need to judge his potential as a starting pitcher, his performance and his control,” Hong said, adding, “I hope (tomorrow) will be the foundation for him to grow to the next level as a starting pitcher. “Kim Dong-kyu, who was selected by LG with the 18th overall pick in the second round of this year’s rookie draft, came to Kiwoom along with Yasoo 토토사이트 Lee Joo-hyung in a trade on the 29th of last month .With Kiwoom’s No. 1 starter Ahn Woo-jin being removed from the roster on the 9th, he was naturally given the opportunity to start. Kim Dong-kyu’s only other first-team appearance came on 10 June against the Daejeon Hanwha Eagles. He came in relief and gave up two runs (one earned) on three hits and three walks in ⅓ innings. His record in the second team is 3-5 with a 4.00 ERA in 11 games.’ Trade motivator’ Lee Joo-hyung has settled in well in a Kiwoom uniform, going 15-for-48 with two home runs in 12 games .Meanwhile, Hong said of Jang Jae-young, who made his first quality start (six innings, three earned runs) the day before, “I met him briefly after the game yesterday and he told me that it was his best pitching since his debut.”
