364 games for five years, and this year, I will take the mound in good health.
Jin Hae-soo did not see the light of the Kia Tigers, who started professional baseball, and the SK Wyverns, the second team. He played 264 games in seven and a half seasons before being traded to the LG Twins, with a 6.42 ERA fx마진거래
The second trade was a big turning point in his life. After moving to LG, he consistently played more than 60 games and earned his first individual title in 2017 with 24 holds. During his five-and-a-half years at LG, he had a 391-game ERA of 4.75. After the end of last season, he also earned FA status and re-signed with LG for up to 1.4 billion won per year.
Jin Hae-soo is also the KBO League’s most prolific pitcher in five years from 2016 to last year. 364 games. More than 50 games outnumbered runner-up Kim Sang-soo (312 games). It is a special record even considering that he is a left-handed bullpen pitcher who often throws short and goes down.
The most appearance is also meaningful for Jin Hae-soo himself. “It was good to have played in many games without getting sick during the last season and set the record (76 games) for most games in the individual season,” he said. On the other hand, the team’s performance did not meet everyone’s expectations at the end, and I personally feel a little disappointed with my ERA.”
Last year, he also set a double-digit hold record for five consecutive years in 600 games. Jin Hae-soo said, “The coach and coach always trusted me and let me go, so I was able to record 600 games and 10 holds for five consecutive years. Thank you always. In fact, I don’t put much meaning on my personal record, but it means a lot to me to have more than 100 holds in LG alone,” he said, expressing his affection for the team.
He also set a record as a pitcher who takes the mound every other day. He took two holds a day at SK and Doubleheader on June 11 last year. Jin Hae-soo said, “I’m trying to stay true to my share and I don’t really care about the records. But I felt good because people around me told me about the record. “It’s been 11 years since I’ve had a doubleheader, so I think it’s been a long time since I recorded two holds a day.”
This year’s goal is to play many games without injury. “Personally, my goal is to be on the mound whenever I need a team without getting sick for a season,” he said. Also last year, our team ended both the regular season and the postseason unfortunately, but this year’s biggest goal is to finish better,” he said.
He also showed a sense of responsibility as the pitching team leader. Jin Hae-soo said, “If there is one more goal, I want to help our junior pitchers grow.”
