Kang Hyo-jong, who has a sturdy expression and strong eyes, joined the LG Twins for a down payment of 200 million won as the first nomination in 2021. His strengths were fastballs and sliders in the middle of 140 kilometers, so he was evaluated as having a good sense of power immediately.
However, he has no experience playing on the first team stage. He pitched five games in the Futures League last year and allowed 12 hits in 10.2 innings. He gave up as many as 13 walks, had a high batting average of 0.293, and was sluggish with an average ERA of 8.44.
However, he showed a lot of effort from the second half. He stood out to the coaching staff as he began to find balance by strengthening his basic physical strength.
Coach Ryu Ji-hyun said in an interview with reporters, “Kang Hyo-jong is also paying attention to the fifth selection candidate.”
Meanwhile, the LG Twins are scheduled to play a practice game against NC at Changwon NC Park on the afternoon of the 3rd.
