Kiwoom Heroes Lee Seung-ho (24) fills the vacancy of Jang Jae-young (21), who was excluded from the starting lineup.
Jang Jae-young, who started with the 5th start this season, made 2 starts, but suffered sluggishness with 8 hits, 10 walks and 9 runs in 6⅓ innings. He recorded 5 walks in all 2 games, and suffered from extreme difficulty in pitching.
In the end, Jang Jae-young was canceled from the first team entry on the 19th, and Kiwoom’s starting pitcher became vacant on the 23rd due to rotation. Naturally, attention was focused on the selection resources that would be newly added to the rotation.메이저사이트
Kiwoom left-hander Lee Seung-ho was dropped as the starting pitcher for the Incheon SSG game on the 23rd. Lee Seung-ho has been active as a bullpen pitcher for the past two seasons, but has experience in starting 23 games in the 2019 season and 21 games in the 2020 season.
Lee Seung-ho played in 2 Futures League games this year, giving up 2 hits (1 home run), 3 walks, 1 strikeout and 1 run in 4 innings. From the 21st, Lee Seung-ho joined the first team and digested training.
On the 22nd, ahead of the Incheon SSG match, Kiwoom coach Hong Won-ki said of Lee Seung-ho, “I didn’t throw long (in the Futures League), but I continued to prepare as a starting pitcher in spring camp. I want to try it once,” he said.
Meanwhile, another starting resource, Jeong Chan-heon, is smoothly checking his condition and pitching in the Futures League. He played 2 games and pitched 5 innings, 3 hits, 4 walks, 1 strikeout and 1 run.
Director Hong explained, “Jung Chan-heon is also constantly raising his pace and preparing. The 5th selection is flexible.” The competition for the 5 selections of the newly started hero corps heats up.
