Hanwha's rookie pitcher Dong-Joo Moon, who debuted two weeks ago, is giving surprises with his fiery fastball these days.
His fastball average speed is already the best in the league.
This is reporter Bae Jung-hoon.
Moon Dong-ju, who had a bitter taste as a pro by giving out 4 points while taking two outs on the 10th, when he made his debut belatedly after wiping out his injuries.
He has been keeping a scoreless streak in the last 5 games with his fiery fastball, which has been known since his high school days.
With a fastball maximum speed of 157 km/h and an average speed of 153.5 km/h, he quickly climbed to the top of the league, beating representative fastball pitchers such as Jo Yo-han, Ahn Woo-jin, and Ko Woo-seok.
His fastball rate is over 70%, and he's confident enough to throw 19 out of 20 pitches only as a fastball two days ago.
In particular, he overwhelms batters with a powerful fastball that doubled his power by hitting a high RBI of 181.8cm, which is more than 10cm higher than the domestic average.
[Moon Dong-ju/Hanwha: First of all, I think he is throwing more carefully about how to deal with batters rather than focusing on restraint.]
While new hitters such as Samsung Lee Jae-hyun and Kiwoom Park Chan-hyeok are showing off their prominence, Moon Dong-ju, a belated addition, is rapidly emerging as a candidate for the Rookie of the Year. While doing so, the hottest newcomer party is unfolding than any other year.
