Lotte ‘sick finger’ Yoon Seong-bin, will it explode in the 7th year of joining?

In the 2023 KBO League, the Lotte Giants are aiming for fall baseball for the first time in six years. In the Stove League, he filled up the limit of three outside free agents and signed contracts with Yoo Kang-nam (4 years total of 8 billion won), Noh Jin-hyuk (4 years total of 5 billion won), and Han Hyun-hee (4 years total of 4 billion won). Players released from other clubs were also actively brought in to strengthen the player base, or depth. It is also an important season in which Sutton’s contract renewal, which is in the final year of his tenure, is at stake. 

However, in order for Lotte to be reborn as a steady strong team, not limited to this season, there are loud voices that the growth of internal prospects must be supported. This is because the growth of large prospects, which had been highly카지노사이트 anticipated at the time of scouting, is being criticized for being particularly stagnant compared to other teams. 

One of them is Yoon Seong-bin, a right-handed fireballer who was compared to Shohei Ohtani (LA Angels) in high school. Yoon Seong-bin was a tall prospect with a height of 197 cm and a strong fastball. Yoon Seong-bin, who graduated from Busan High School and joined Lotte as the first nomination in 2017, received a huge amount of 450 million won as a down payment. 

※ Lotte Yoon Seong-bin’s professional career records

Yoon Seong-bin, who devoted himself to rehabilitation for a year after joining the team, pitched in 18 games in 2018, the first year of his first team debut, and recorded 2 wins, 5 losses, an average ERA of 6.39, and an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.790. At the time, he showed potential with an average velocity of his fastball of 144.5 km/h. However, he could not hide his anxiety about pitching, allowing 36 walks in 50.2 innings, reaching an average of 6.39 walks per 9 innings. 

In 2019, when he was in his third year with the team, Seongbin Yoon pitched in one game at the beginning of the season and was sent to Japan’s sister club Chiba Lotte Marines for short-term training in May. It was interpreted that Lotte had high expectations to send training to Japan at the height of the regular season. However, skepticism was raised as to whether Lotte’s internal leaders could not properly teach Yun Seong-bin. 

Since then, Yun Seong-bin’s first-team appearances were all in one game in 2021. After the end of the 2021 season, he enlisted as an active duty soldier in November, but left the training center due to health problems. Last year, while only playing in the Futures League, he pitched in 16 games and was sluggish with 2 losses, 1 hold, and an ERA of 9.74 without a win. The average walks per 9 innings was 7.08, and he was unable to overcome the chronic difficulty in pitching.

Yoon Seong-bin’s professional first-team record is only 6.75 with an average ERA of 2 wins and 6 losses in 20 appearances and 52 innings. He is attracting attention as the biggest player in high school and is shabby for a promising prospect who entered the professional league. Analysts say that the reason why he has not been able to show significant performance over a considerable period of time is that he has grown taller even after his professional debut, making it difficult to balance pitching and not being in good physical condition. 

Born on February 26, 1999, Sungbin Yoon will soon be 24 years old. Considering his age, it is too early to predict the player’s future. He has innate physical condition and a fastball, so once his potential explodes, he cannot give up the expectation that he will become an ace to lead Lotte. 

Currently, Yoon Seong-bin is listed as one of 21 pitchers at Lotte’s 1st team spring camp in Guam. Attention is focusing on whether Yoon Seong-bin, who has been in his 7th year as a pro, will be able to help Lotte advance into the postseason by settling in the first team this season.
