In response to a reporter’s question about tomorrow’s starting pitcher ahead of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League home game between the Samsung Lions and the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on the 19th, KT coach Lee Kang-cheol said, “Ha Jun-ho.”
Ha Jun-ho, who graduated from Gyeongnam High School, joined Lotte as the second overall pick in the second round in 2008 and is a veteran left-handed pitcher who is in his 16th year as a professional. He pitched in relief in 10 games this season, recording an ERA of 2.89 with no wins or losses. He allowed 11 hits, 5 walks, 5 balls hit to the body, 6 strikeouts, and 6 runs (3 earned) in a total of 9⅓ innings.
His overall performance in the KBO League is 115 games, no wins, 6 losses, and 9 holds, and his earned run average is 6.49. He allowed 101 hits (9 home runs), 74 walks, 10 balls to the body, 77 strikeouts, and 82 runs (74 earned) in 102⅔ innings.
Ha Jun-ho has experience of making two starts in his professional career. He started as a starter in 2010 when he was playing for Lotte and in 2020 when he was playing for KT. In 2010, he started against the Doosan Bears on August 4 and lost the game with 6 hits (1 home run), 3 walks, 2 strikeouts, and 7 runs (6 earned) in 2 innings. Also, in 2020, he appeared as a starter in the Kiwoom Heroes game on September 6 and recorded 1 hit, 1 walk, 3 strikeouts, and 2 runs (2 earned) in 1⅔ innings.
In the game on the 20th, Ha Jun-ho is expected to serve as the de facto opener. KT’s fifth starter, Eom Sang-baek, who was a solid member of KT’s starting rotation this season, was diagnosed with a microfracture of the 8th rib on August 25 and left the lineup. Accordingly, Kim Min was selected as the 5th starter along with the existing starting lineup of Cuevas, Benjamin, Go Young-pyo, and Bae Jeong-seong and was throwing the ball around.
KT was forced to accept the deadly 9-game schedule as the match against Hanwha in Daejeon on the 16th was canceled due to rain. First of all, Cubeas and Benjamin both started as starters in the first and second games of the double header against the Hanwha Eagles on the 17th, so they cannot participate in the game against LG on the 20th. Because I only had two days off. Additionally, Kim Min started against Hanwha in Daejeon on the 18th, and Go Young-pyo will start against Samsung on the 19th. The remaining pitcher is excluded, and according to KT officials, he is scheduled to appear against Suwon Lotte on the 21st. As a result, in a situation where the starting pitcher was empty, Ha Jun-ho suddenly took the opportunity to start.
However, it is a game in which he is trying to win for the first time in his career, and Ha Jun-ho has a bad relationship with his opponent, LG. A home game against the LG Twins held at home on the 7th. At that time, Ha Jun-ho took the mound as a relief pitcher in the 9th inning and threw 3 balls that were hit by the body. He allowed the ball to hit Oh Ji-hwan, Moon Seong-ju, and Park Hae-min, and eventually a bench clearing occurred with players from both teams vacating the dugout. After the game ended, LG captain Oh Ji-hwan said, “I think I was upset for a moment. It was a situation where there could have been misunderstandings, but when I was a runner, (Park) Byung-ho and (Park) Kyung-soo hyungs told me that it was not intentional. He said, “Although it is unfortunate that the last one ended in a difficult situation, it is okay because the team won. Meanwhile,
