Pitcher Jang Hyun-seok, who plays in the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Rookie League, helped the team achieve a no-hitter.

Jang Hyun-seok, a pitcher for the Dodgers of the Arizona Complex League (ACL) at the rookie level, pitched 2⅔ innings of scoreless baseball with two walks and five strikeouts against the ACL Guardians, a rookie team affiliated with the Cleveland Cavaliers, at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Arizona, USA, on June 6.

It started well. Jang gave up a hit by pitch with the bases loaded in the first inning, but got out of the inning with two strikeouts. In the second inning, a strikeout, a fly ball to center field, and a groundout to second base completed the first triple play.

After getting two easy outs with back-to-back strikeouts in the third, Jang gave up two walks to put runners on first and second. Jang was replaced by the second pitcher, Ricardo Montero. Montero struck out the first batter he faced to end the inning.

The game went into the seventh inning, and four pitchers, including Jang Hyun-seok, allowed two runs on six hits and six walks without a hit, making it a no-hitter.

Jang’s season ERA dropped from 9.60 to 8.15.

Yongmago ace and No. 1 high school pitcher Jang Hyun-seok, who went 6-3 with a 1.84 ERA in 21 games (68⅓ innings) over three years in high school, 바카라 필승법 showed off his strong command, striking out a whopping 102 batters.

Jang Hyun-seok, who was the No. 1 overall pick in last year’s KBO rookie draft, chose to play in the United States, and the LA Dodgers offered him a $900,000 (approx. KRW 1.2 billion) contract.

“It’s hard to believe that Jang is 19 years old, but he is a tremendous pitching prospect who throws up to 97 mph and has a variety of pitches, including a fastball, curveball, changeup, slider, and sweeper,” said Dodgers Nation, a media outlet specializing in the Los Angeles Dodgers. “He was expected to be the No. 1 overall pick in the KBO draft, but he chose to play in the U.S. and the Dodgers gave him a chance.”

“The Dodgers have had great success with international players such as Ryu Hyun-jin, Maeda Genta, and Nomo Hideo, and we hope Jang Hyun-seok can do the same,” he said, adding, “Dodger fans will be very excited to see what he can do in the big leagues.”

Jang won a gold medal as a member of the Korean National Team at last year’s Asian Games in Hangzhou, where he received military service benefits.
