“Hanwha, Seda,”···It’s not a government service, ‘candidate’ Yeom Kyung-yeop and Lee Kang-chul were serious

With the emergence of Ryu Hyun-jin (37) of the Hanwha Eagles, the team is reevaluating its past performance in this season. Despite common sense that it would be difficult for the Hanwha Eagles, which ranked ninth last year, to become the champion in a heartbeat, there are vague expectations about the Ryu Hyun-jin effect that has yet to be revealed. It is still difficult to tell how powerful Ryu will be after returning from elbow surgery and rehabilitation for a half season, but it seems that Hanwha’s past performance has more than doubled. Is this true.

The eyes of other clubs that will meet Hanwha in person may be the most accurate. In the field, Ryu Hyun-jin’s effect is actually very high. Even the top two team coaches, who are considered candidates for the championship, see a high possibility of Hanwha’s counterattack. As a result of a serious calculation, not a formal packaging for the returning Korean national pitcher or other team, he said, “Hanwha has strengthened.”

LG manager Yeom Kyung-yeop, along with KT, which was joined at the Korean Series last year, has pointed out that Kia will be a strong opponent this year. With the emergence of Ryu Hyun-jin, there is also room for Hanwha to join the team. When asked if the team that is aiming for its second consecutive win is wary of last year’s ninth place team, he looked stern.

“I always say this, but no one knows what will happen. Our team might not go our way, and there is no way that Hanwha should not become the champion. We were a team that could make it to the top five as long as Jung Eun-won and Ha Joo-seok hit a little bit, Kim Seo-hyun came up, and the team matched as desired, and Ryu Hyun-jin came to it. Now, the team even has a positive alpha,” said Yeom Kyung-yeop, adding, “Which of the three starters (in Korea) out of the 10 teams (in Korea) do you think will win along with Ryu Hyun-jin? Except for Kim Kwang-hyun and Yang Hyun-jong, none of them has reached that level yet. Ryu’s pitching capability is not bad, but he could come and make the team grow further in the middle. Then the team will completely change.”

As in last year, Hanwha tried to make a decision through camps with two foreign pitchers and Moon Dong-ju as regular starters and four to five starters left empty. However, with the exception of top-rated pitcher Ryu Hyun-jin, the team has only one fifth starter to choose from. Lee Tae-yang, who had been considered a starting resource, will be able to move to long relief. His waist will strengthen.

Manager Yeom Kyung-yeop said, “The fact that the defense team is improving is the effect of Ryu Hyun-jin. The team was improving even without Ryu, and we are calculating that the team could be a strong rival (with) the effects of Ryu’s arrival.” “It’s someone else’s team, but I have to analyze other teams to prepare for it, so I have no choice but to calculate the best condition for that team to go to. I think we will pay attention to the process of (Korean currency) changing after the start of the season.”

Lee Kang-chul, manager of KT, who is considered the runner-up team last year and has the strongest selection in the league, also agrees. “Hanwha is already No. 1 in ball power.” Lee Kang-chul, manager of Hanwha, believes that Hanwha’s middle ground fighting, which was getting stronger, will be strengthened through changes in the starting lineup.

Manager Lee Kang-chul said, “The Hanwha intermediate pitchers are very good. The pitchers such as Kim Bum-soo and Park Sang-won have very good pitching. They might perceive that the pitchers are stronger because they did not win much against the Hanwha Eagles last year. However, it is not easy to come from behind against the Hanwha Eagles in the middle. If Ryu Hyun-jin comes, the middle will be stronger,” adding, “There are other teams that have good starters. In my standard, several teams are similar when it comes to starters. However, if I look at the entire mound including the middle, I see Hanwha as No. 1.”

Most of all, Ryu Hyun-jin’s joining the wriggling team is believed to create a scary synergy effect. This is the wariness that KT gained from its experience of finishing the season in second place after falling to ninth place last year. “When we were having a really hard time last year, Cuevas played the role of ace and secured the axis for the entire team,” manager Lee Kang-chul said. “Ryu could play such a role in the Hanwha Eagles this year. I think Ryu’s synergy effect will be huge.”

Hanwha had the fewest starting wins in the league with 32 wins last year, but its relief wins were 26 wins, the same as fifth-ranked Doosan. It was an intermediate level in the league. LG and KT, which were ranked first and second in the final, were not far behind with six wins, one draw and nine losses, respectively, in the regular season. As the young bullpen builds up its experience one by one, the magnitude of the synergy effect that will emerge is actually threatening even the top teams in the league.

Coincidentally, the two teams called favorites will be the first to meet Ryu this year.

Choi Won-ho, manager of the Hanwha Eagles, has already announced Ryu Hyun-jin as the starting pitcher for this season’s opening game. The Hanwha Eagles will hold its regular season opening game against the LG Twins in Jamsil on March 23. If it plays three consecutive games against the LG Twins at SSG and Incheon, the Hanwha Eagles will have its third consecutive home opening game against the LG Twins on March 29. According to the rotation, Ryu will take the mound again in this home opening game, against KT. Both LG and KT are likely to field their first foreign starters, Detrick Enns and William Cuevas in their first showdown with the Hanwha Eagles.

Ryu’s first two games against the two favorite teams will serve as an important starting point for Hanwha to see how much it has changed and taken off this season. Opponents are already wary of rival teams.
