It is the first time that Baek Seung-woo, who entered the 2023 rookie draft with the 69th rank in the 7th round, entered the first team.
Baek Seung-woo took the mound twice in demonstration games last March and recorded no runs while striking out one without getting a hit in two innings. He only made two appearances, but he made a mark with his gutsy pitching.
Baek Seung-woo, who was a training player, was able to be called up from May, but he fell into poor condition and was able to make his debut in the first team only in June. In the Futures (2nd team) league, he played 14 games and 14⅓ innings, leaving 1 win, 1 loss, 1 hold and 1 save with an ERA of 8.16.
Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop said of Baek Seung-woo, “I left a good impression in the demonstration game. It was a short inning, but he showed an overwhelming appearance. Even though he is a rookie, he was not intimidated.” hopefully” he expected.
Baek Seung-woo said, “It was unfortunate that I couldn’t join the first team right away from May. I wanted to go up as soon as possible and help the team,” expressing his feelings about joining the first team.
He continued, “Quick competition is my strength. I am also confident in my curveball and changeup. I have made up for a lot of shortcomings during the month, so I think you can look forward to it.”
Doosan’s back is not strong, with an average ERA of 4.83 (ninth place) until the 1st. If the ‘new face’ Seung-woo Baek shows a sense of stability, the Doosan mound can rise even higher.
