“Relentlessly annoying…” FA chaebol No. 1 Yang Ji Effect, Doosan ERA 1.78 ‘squeeze squeeze’ [MD Gwangju]
“I think he’s a catcher who is relentless and frustrates opponents.”
During the 10-game winning streak, Doosan has boasted a salty mound with a 1.78 ERA. 카지노사이트 Raul Alcantara and Kwak-Bin Kwak have formed a strong 1-3 starters, anchored by the returning Brandon Waddell. Kim Dong-ju, Choi Seung-yong, and Choi Won-jun rounded out the bullpen. The bullpen is anchored by Hong Gun-hee, with Chung Chul-won, Park Chi-guk, Kim Myung-shin, and Lee Byung-heon contributing.
Good teams have good pitching harmony. And if there’s one player who contributes to both, it’s the catcher. The returning An Bang-man and No. 1 free agent, Yang Yang-ji, is a force to be reckoned with. During the 10-game winning streak, Yang has been a consistent force at the plate, batting .412 with 14 hits in 34 at-bats, one home run, five RBIs and four runs scored.
In the first game of the second half against KIA on the 21st, he faltered, going 0-for-4. Instead, he supported Raul Alcantara’s six-inning, one-run victory. The pitching trio of Park Chi-guk, Kim Myung-shin, and Hong Gun-hee were also highlighted by Yang’s clever ball placement and pitching decisions.
“All of our pitchers benefit from Yang Ji’s pitches,” manager Lee Seung-yup said after the Gwangju KIA game was cancelled due to rain on the 23rd. According to baseball statistics site Statiz, Yang is the No. 1 catcher in ERA this season (3.27). No other catcher this season has given up fewer runs with the mask on than Yang.
“Yang-ji is basically a catcher who uses a lot of fastballs,” said Lee Seung-yeop, “and when I see him mixing up his pitches in the dugout, I think he’s a catcher who’s relentless.” The word “relentless” is important.
It means he’s very good at digging into his opponent’s weaknesses. He combines basic batters’ data with the flow of the game and the condition of the batter and pitcher on the day to come up with the most probable signature. For example, Lee said that in the first game of the second half, he used a lot of changeup signs against Hong Gun-hee because he didn’t have a good delivery. Add to that the fact that some of the KIA batters at the plate were vulnerable to sliders or similar pitches that day.
There is no right or wrong answer. But there are formulas and theories. Yang is certain of this. And he’s not stubborn. He has complete trust in his pitchers. Having been in the NC for the past four years, it’s hard to say that he’s had much past experience with the current crop of young Doosan pitchers, which is why he’s adapted so quickly.
“Pitchers don’t throw 100 per cent of the time where the catcher wants them to, but I think our pitchers trust him and know that if they throw there, they will get good pitches,” Lee said. Yang’s pitch mix is also a factor in our pitchers’ success.”
That doesn’t mean Lee is telling the young Doosan catchers to ‘learn from Yang Ji’. “There is a will factor in the rise of our pitchers, but I don’t talk about it directly with the players. I don’t tell them directly to learn willpower. But I’m sure the pitchers watching from the bullpen and the players in the dugout feel it,” he said. It’s easy to see why Doosan is investing $15.2 billion in Yang.
