[IS resignation] 7 in 4 days, 9 more “It hurts, but so do the beasts”
SSG Landers Park Jong-hoon was notified of his fourth second-team move this season alone due to sluggish performance.
SSG excluded Park Jong-hoon 안전놀이터 from the first-team entry ahead of the Lotte Giants match at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 17th. Following April, June, and July, it is the fourth exclusion from the first group until August.
It is because of the sluggish performance including the overshooting of the 4th dune.
Park Jong-hoon started the game the day before and recorded 4 runs in 5 innings, 7 walks and 2 hit balls. On the 4th, following 7 4 pitches against Lotte, he suffered from a chronic lack of control for two consecutive games.
SSG director Kim Won-hyung expressed regret, saying, “What should I explain?” Manager Kim said, “The player himself will try not to give a walk and throw it. Up to the 4th inning, he induced 3 double strokes and passed it well, but the walk was the cause of the turn in the 5th inning.”
Park Jong-hoon is a pitcher with SSG’s proud underhands. He reached regulation innings from 2017 to 2020 and won 71 career victories. However, following the average ERA of 6.00 with 3 wins and 5 losses in 11 games last year, it is 2-6 with an ERA of 5.61 this season. While he pitched 77 total innings, he allowed 55 walks and 17 hit balls.
Director Kim Won-hyung said, “From a human point of view, (Park Jong-hoon’s decision to join the 2nd division) hurts my heart.” “But the beasts are also having a hard time (with the long defense time due to overshooting the 4th pitch). Sometimes I have no choice but to lose my concentration while watching.” The background of the second military line was explained.
