Samsung Lions vs. KT Wiz Suwon
Friday, May 15, 2020 at 5:30 a.m. ET
Venue: Suwon, South Korea
South Korea – KBO


Analysis

As noted by a few KBO writers in a recent piece, the emergence of Heyong Jun So ($6,200) is kind of incredible. The 18-year-old will make his second career start this evening, just days after holding the mighty Doosan Bears to two earned runs across five innings. With the Lions in possession of the league’s second-lowest OPS (.671), So could be in for another decent outing on Friday. Considering he’s priced as the second-cheapest pitcher, any glimmer of upside makes the rookie viable.
