LG pitcher Choi Won-tae, who allowed the most hits in a single game in his personal career in the previous pitch, prepares for the next pitch with an additional rest day.
Coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop mentioned the starting rotation ahead of the match against Doosan at Jamsil Stadium on the 30th. On this day, light rain continued to fall at Jamsil Stadium in the afternoon, and at the time coach Yeom briefed the reporters, it was a time when the cancellation of the game had not been decided.토토사이트
Director Yeom announced that the starting rotation would be adjusted in case of cancellation due to rain. If the game on the 30th is canceled due to rain, coach Yeom plans to give Choi Won-tae a long break. Kelly will be the starter against Doosan on the 31st, and Lim Chan-gyu, Lee Jeong-yong, and Kim Yun-sik will be selected as the starters for the three-game series against Hanwha on the weekend. Instead of Plutko, who left due to a left pelvic bone bruise, Kim Yun-shik joins as a starter.
Choi Won-tae’s start will move on to next week. Manager Yeom said, “I’m trying to let Won-tae rest as much as possible. He thinks of going out next Tuesday,” he said, adjusting the starting order. In that case, Choi Won-tae will take 10 days off before pitching. That means he skipped one pitch.
However, if the game on the 30th is held normally, Choi Won-tae will start on Sunday, September 3rd. Kelly throws on the 31st, and plans to start in the order of Lim Chan-gyu, Kim Yun-sik, and Choi Won-tae in three consecutive matches against Hanwha. In that case, Choi Won-tae will start after an 8-day break.
In the end, the match between LG and Doosan was canceled due to rain. Choi Won-tae’s pitching schedule has been moved to next week.
Choi Won-tae threw 4 innings against Changwon NC on the 25th, allowing 15 hits and 11 runs (9 earned). It was a new record for the most hits in a single individual game and tied for the most runs. He allowed 3 runs due to poor pitch from the 1st inning, and allowed 4 additional runs in each of the 3rd and 4th innings.
At the time, manager Yeom made sure that the pitches were filled up enough (93 pitches) and found the reason why the ball did not go well. Choi Won-tae, who played the worst game, had a long break to restore his pitching balance. With Plutko’s injury gap, local starting pitchers must exert their strength.
Choi Won-tae was traded from Kiwoom to LG at the end of July. LG, desperate to win the Korean Series after 29 years, gave up prospect Lee Joo-hyung, rookie pitcher Kim Dong-gyu, and the right to pick for the first round next year to reinforce the selection of local players. After transferring to LG, Choi Won-tae is recording an average ERA of 7.00 with 2 wins and 2 losses in 5 games. He is slightly falling short of expectations as he has conceded massive runs twice.
Choi Won-tae’s next appearance is against Suwon KT on September 5th. Against 2nd place KT, which is on the rise with a terrifying rise, LG should show the value of the trade by giving them 3 players.
On the other hand, in response to the question that the attack has not been active recently, coach Yeom said, “It is not active all the time. The attack has not been active since August, but the batting has a graph. So, we have to fight well.” When the scoring power of the other line is low, the starting pitcher should create a winning flow by dragging the longest innings possible.
