You’re full of rookie swagger. Confident with his ball. He is fearless in the zone.

Lotte Giants’ Jeon Mir (18)’s stock is rising day by day. He pitched 1⅔ innings of two-hit ball with no runs allowed and one strikeout in the sixth inning against the Samsung Lions on Friday.

In his third start of the year, he proved his worth again. In his previous two appearances, he only pitched one inning each, but on this day, Lotte manager Kim Tae-hyung gave him 1⅔ innings as a multi-inning test.

In all three games, he allowed no runs and struck out four. His confidence is high, and he has a good mix of pitches, including curveballs and sliders to accompany his fastball. He has enough talent to excite Lotte fans.

His first start was on the 10th against the SSG Landers. He gave up a hit to Lee Ji-young and a walk to Choi Kyung-mo, but struck out Oh Tae-gon and Kim Jung-min to end the game without allowing an earned run.

On the 11th, he also pitched against Doosan, but on the right mound after senior Koo Seung-min was hit by a pitch and replaced.

He gave up a single to Lee Yoo-chan to load the bases.

However, after striking out Kim Dae-hyun, 스포츠토토 he struck out Jang Seung-hyun and Kim Jae-hwan, showing the presence of ‘KKK’.Samsung Electronics also gave up back-to-back hits to Oh Jae-il and Kim Dong-jin, putting runners on first and second with no outs.

Samsung manager Park Jin-man pushed the 18-year-old rookie hard, even bringing in pinch-hitter Kang Kang-ul. But he struck out Kim Young-woong for his fourth strikeout of the tournament and got Ryu Ji-hyuk to ground out to end the threat.

Manager Kim Tae-hyung has already announced his intention to use Jeon in the first team. The question is how much he will be used in the first team and whether he will make the opening roster.

The coach likes the way he faces the batters with fearless strikes, which allows him to win favorable ball counts and play with more confidence.

For now, the position is not set in stone. Previously, Kim Tae-hyung said that he would utilize 13 pitchers in the first team roster, including “five starters, five relievers, two lefties, and an additional bullpen. Jeon was in a position to compete for the last roster spot alongside Choi and Lee.

However, with a string of strong performances, his presence in the bullpen could change and his position could change. It’s a ‘happy dilemma’ for the manager.
