SEOUL, May 21 (Yonhap) -- Lee Su-min, a South Korean high school pitcher, has put up impressive statistics this season. One number, however, has generated concerns about his long-term health.
So far in the national high school weekend league, the senior left-hander with Daegu Sangwon High School has pitched 62 1/3 innings and struck out 88. His ERA is a minuscule 0.44. In an April game, Lee struck out 26 batters in 10 innings, setting the record for most Ks in a South Korean baseball game, amateur or professional.
