The contents of his first appearance in the Futures League were not satisfactory. He was hit by lead batter Jeong Jin-ki and Kim Beom-jun, and after Choi Woo-jae’s ground ball, Choi Bo-seong’s sacrifice fly allowed a run. He ended his first inning by finishing Park Joo-chan on a fly ball.
Jang Hyeon-shik, who also came up in the 5th inning, caught Kwon Jeong-woong with a shortstop floating ball, but was hit by Kim Han-byeol and was replaced by Yoo Ji-seong and came down the mound. The highest speed was 148 km.

As for KIA, if Jang Hyun-sik returns, he will be able to look at a more solid mound. Jang Hyun-sik played an active role as a key bullpen for KIA, recording 34 holds in 2021 and 19 holds in 2022. His career hold was 70.
KIA coach Kim Jong-guk expressed his position that he would approach Jang Hyun-sik’s cheek plan a little more carefully ahead of the Gwangju Doosan Bears match on the 7th.
Coach Kim said, “I’m constantly appearing in actual matches. I throw it once every two days and there is no great pain. I’ll try to throw a little more and look at the situation and call up if it’s okay.”
As much as he threw the ball in the Futures League, he could look at a call-up next week at the earliest. However, coach Kim emphasized, “We have to throw a little more (in the Futures League).”
Coach Kim explained, “If you get back to the first team and get pain again, you have to rehabilitate.”
