The cold winter of Jeong Chan-heon, who needs an ‘unbroken heart’
“I really wanted to play in the Korean series… but…”
Kiwoom pitcher Jeong Chan-heon, who came out to the professional baseball FA market, recalled last fall for a while.
He was still wearing Heroes socks.
At the time when the recruitment war for big free agents had already ended, sweat beaded on Jeong Chan-heon’s forehead as he did sit-ups at an exercise center in Bangbae-dong, Seocho-gu, Seoul.
The FA market froze. Jung Chan-heon still couldn’t find a team. Jeong Chan-heon recorded an average ERA of 5.36 in the 2022 season with 5 wins and 6 losses.
As his sluggishness lengthened, he was often left out of the roster in the second half, and eventually was completely excluded from the roster from the postseason playoffs.
“The playoff against LG was probably hard for me to get out of. I had a bad ‘match (opponent record).’ I think it was difficult to get him to join. But I really wanted to go out for the Korean series I met with SSG. It could have been my first appearance in my life… but it was very disappointing. The Korean series was different. I really wanted to throw it.”
Kiwoom boldly excluded Jeong Chan-heon and Han Hyun-hee from baseball last fall and gave opportunities to Choi Won-tae and Lee Seung-ho. 카지노사이트
Although he was successful in recovering after back surgery, he was unable to enter the entry due to his ups and downs last season.
There is also an analysis that other clubs will not be able to approach it easily because Jung Chan-heon has to calculate 100% annual salary compensation with one compensation player as a B grade. However, a story recently leaked out that a local club calculated the future value of Jeong Chan-heon. The club neither confirmed nor denied.
“I think there is hope. I don’t know yet. It’s only natural to prove my body by making it strong. I’ve considered not only the Korean stage but also the overseas stage. Of course, the Korean stage is my number one priority. As long as I don’t give up, there is hope. .”
Jeong Chan-heon is already 33 years old. However, considering the fighting spirit of 39-year-old Noh Kyung-eun, who did not give up with her indomitable will, Jeong Chan-heon’s future is also positive. Jeong Chan-heon is a pitcher who needs an unbroken heart.
Jeong Chan-heon’s fate is expected to be decided after mid-January.
