KT So-Jun Sohn, passed the second bullpen pitching… “No discomfort”
KT Wiz Sohn Joon-jun (22) started his comeback with his second bullpen pitching.
Joon Sohn pitched in the bullpen prior to the match against the Doosan Bears at Jamsil Stadium on the 23rd.
This is the second bullpen pitching after the last 20 days. On this day, he threw 36 pitches with a mixture of all pitches except for the two-seam fastball.
Joon Sohn said, “Overall, I am satisfied with being able to throw the ball however I want. He did not feel any particularly uncomfortable symptoms in his body.” He added, “Now I’m going to the real game, and it’s important to throw balls that I can be satisfied with in the real game. I want to come back healthy and help the team.” 안전놀이터
Joon Sohn collapsed with 9 runs in 2⅓ innings against the LG Twins on the 2nd, the first appearance of the season. Later, he was diagnosed with a right forearm sprain during a hospital examination and was excluded from the first team entry on the 4th.
After recovering, in his first bullpen pitching on the 20th, he stretched out 20 pitches. Joon Sohn, who increased the number of pitches to 36 that day, is about to be put into practice.
KT coach Lee Kang-cheol said, “So Hyung-joon should raise his number in the Futures (2nd team) game if there is no pain after the second pitching in the bullpen.”
So Joon So-jun was one of the starting pitchers with an average ERA of 3.05 with 13 wins and 6 losses last year.
KT has been struggling with a series of injuries since the beginning of the season. If ‘Healthy’ Sohn Joon returns and does his part, we can alleviate our worries.
