Doosan Bears vs. KIA Tigers
Friday, May 15, 2020 at 5:30 a.m. ET
Venue: Gwangju, South Korea
South Korea – KBO


Analysis

I can’t stress enough how neither starting pitcher in this game looks particularly viable on Friday’s slate. On one side, we have Hui Kwan Yu ($9,200), who posted the lowest strikeout rate (9.3%) of any pitcher to throw 100-plus innings in 2019. Then, there’s Ki Young Im ($5,500). Of the 99 pitchers to throw at least 100 innings since the beginning of 2018, Im owns the third-highest FIP (5.80) and fifth-highest WHIP (1.72) of the group.
