The command tower has already scored as a native ace. However, the pitcher lowered himself, saying, “It is still an undeserved evaluation.” LG veteran pitcher Lim Chan-gyu (31), who took a leap forward by maximizing his strengths, emphasized that he would not lose his original intention.
Lim Chan-gyu started the mound against Munhak SSG on the 23rd and threw 95 pitches, giving up 3 hits, 4 walks, 1 run, and 3 strikeouts in 6 innings. LG won SSG 9-1, and Lim Chan-gyu had 4 wins in the season and an average ERA of 2.33. He also threw the fastest ball this year with a top speed of 147 km/h.
After the game, Lim Chan-gyu said about throwing the fastest ball this season, “Before the game, I thought the speed would come out well. He said the weather was fine and he felt good. Last year, I threw hard to increase my speed, but today I just threw with the same balance, and my speed came out well. He threw with no intention of throwing hard, but he came out well and felt better,” he laughed.
His redemption went up, but he didn’t cling to it. Rather than increasing the proportion of fastballs, he maintained the proportion of changeups and curveballs. Of the 95 pitches thrown that day, 41 fastballs, 32 changeups, 18 curveballs and 4 sliders were recorded.
Lim Chan-gyu said, “This is literature. And I’ve already experienced it. The result was not good when he only threw fast balls saying that he had velocity. So I just thought it was a thank you for the good restraint. He only cared about commands,” he said.
Interestingly, this is Lim Chan-gyu, whose restraint suddenly rose in the same place two years ago. In the second half of June 140km, the fastball restraint rose, and he played an active part with an average ERA of 3.87 in the 2021 season.
Lim Chan-gyu said, “I thought about it two years ago. But he thinks it’s important to continue what he prepared this year. He said, “During the camp, the coach asked me to make use of his strong point, the breaking ball, so I can throw the changeup better.” He agreed with the manager’s request to play a supporting role for young pitchers because they can produce good results in the start. Then he found my color.”
Looking at his performance so far this season, he is at a career high pace. However, he emphasized that he had no greed for selection.스포츠토토
Lim Chan-gyu said, “I used to have a lot of greed for selection. Now, starting pitchers, quality starts, and more than 5 innings have all been put down. So it’s okay to go back to Long Relief. Again, prepare twice a week for three innings. I just thought it was cool to throw well when I came out as a starter like this as a substitute starter and throw well even after going long,” he smiled.
