Yang Hyun-jong of the Texas Rangers pitched well in his third exhibition game against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Yang Hyun-jong was on the mound in the fifth inning, 0-6 behind the Dodgers in a demonstration game at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Arizona, on the 20th (Korea time). He allowed one run on three hits and four strikeouts in three innings.
Texas was replaced by starting pitcher Kyle Cody in the fifth inning, and Lewis Otis threw in the third inning. Hunter Wood made the fourth inning, and Yang Hyun-jong made the fourth pitcher in the fifth inning.
The fifth innings were finished with seven balls; he threw a super-strong fastball (strike) and a two-ball curve (ball) against first batter Jack McInnestree. McInnestree hit the grounder in the third inning, but Yang Hyun-jong's left foot was refracted, and he rolled to the front of the second baseman and was out of first base.
The next hitter was DJ Peters, who allowed a home run in his first match against the Dodgers on the 8th. He led the first baseman to ground ball in two strikes and went into the first base cover and got two outs. He made it out to first baseman fly ball in the first pitch against Elliot Soto.
But the sixth was a bit of a pity: he grabbed two strikes against the lead hitter Lavelle and allowed a left-handed hit as the third ball was driven in the middle; Sheldon Noise struck out with a three-hit swing.
The change ball from one walk in the game against Andy Burns from Lotte fell flat and allowed a left-handed double. He allowed one point in the first inning, second and third bases, with a hit in front of center fielder Austin Barnes, a slightly blocked ball. Matt Davidson struck out in the first and third bases and Matt Beatty was second baseman in the first inning to prevent further runs.
In the seventh, McInnestree struck out three balls, and Peters struck out three basemen. He was good at third baseman defense.
Lee Kang-in (20, Valencia) is receiving a big club love call: If Juventus is released as a free agent, he will try to bring Lee Kang-in to the transfer fee of 0 won; the contract period with Valenci ends next year.
Italian media "Ilvian Correno" said on the 20th (Korean time), "Lee Gang-in was caught on the Juventus radar network; Juventus was constantly monitoring Lee Gang-in. Lee Gang-in is not happy in Valencia, she said.
European football expert 스포츠중계 Romeo Agresti also said: "Juventus are targeting free agent players, and they are also interested in Lee Gang-in, who we understand is currently included on the recruitment list. It is a matter to look seriously, "he nodded at the transfer.
Lee Gang-in is a talent that grew up in Valencia: he stepped up the youth team and promoted to the first team through the B team in 2019. Under Marcelino, he could not show 100% advantage by leaving the winger rather than the second-top or attacking midfielder. For tactical reasons (4-4-2 formation), he was not guaranteed a solid playing time.
Lee Kang-in considered farewell to Valencia, but Valencia explained the future and vision and asked for a stay; sending a large number of veteran players in the summer and appointing coach Harvey Gracia. He used it as an attack option in the preseason and was expected to start, but he did not use Lee Kang-in due to friction with the high-ranking people.
The contract ends in 2022 with Valencia, and the contract is cold. It is more like a rejection than a hold. Lee Kang-in has also dropped his head on the bench in the Gracia manager's decision, which is not understandable in recent league games.
According to local reports, the three major European leagues, including the Spanish Primera División, the French League, Italy Serie A, and the Premier League, are interested. If Valencia is going to have to spend at least this summer to collect the transfer fee.
According to the Valencia region of Super Deporte, Juventus showed interest in Lee Kang-in in the summer transfer market every time. It appears that he has observed Lee Kang-in since FIFA's Under-20 World Cup.
Of course, if Lee Kang-in is released as a free agent, Juventus and many other teams will jump into the recruitment game.From this summer to next year, the transfer to Lee Kang-in is expected to be hot.
