Lee Kang-cheol, We have to Hold Out Until Mid-May

KT Coach Lee Kang-cheol “We have to Hold Out Until Mid-May When Go Young-pyo and Lee Sang-dong Return”

KT Wiz coach Lee Kang-cheol set the middle of next month as the starting point for a rebound.

Coach Lee said ahead of the professional baseball game against the Hanwha Eagles held at KT Wiz Park in Suwon, Gyeonggi-do on the 24th, “We have to hold out well until Go Young-pyo and Lee Sang-dong return in mid-May.

“The most important thing is for the batting lineup not to collapse,” he said. 카지노사이트탑

Korean starter Ko Young-pyo is out of the lineup due to a minor injury to his elbow flexor, and key bullpen player Lee Sang-dong is out of the lineup due to a ruptured ankle ligament.

If the two players return in the middle of next month as scheduled, the bullpen will be in trouble.

It seems that KT, which is suffering from this problem, will be able to breathe easier.

KT’s ERA, which ranks 9th in the league, is Koo Gu-jin’s ERA of 7.71, the worst among the 10 teams.

There is a big difference from 9th place Kiwoom Heroes (5.36).

When Go Young-pyo returns, rookie Won Sang-hyun, who currently fills the starting spot, is expected to add strength to the bullpen.

As Coach Lee said, the key to holding on is the batting lineup.

KT’s team batting average is 5th in the league (0.277).

Seong-ho Cheon (0.371), Mel Rojas Jr. (0.296), and Baek-ho Kang (0.296) are showing off their good hitting skills.

Coach Lee said, “Last year, we lost 3 points (in one game), but this year we are losing almost 6 or 7 points,” and expressed regret, saying, “If we had last year’s pitching staff, we should be in the top rankings.”

Meanwhile, Coach Lee praised rookie pitcher Yuk Cheong-myeong, who started and pitched well against Hanwha the previous day.

In his debut game as a starter on the 17th, Yuk Cheong-myeong pitched well against Kiwoom Heroes with 6 hits (1 home run), 2 walks, 1 strikeout, and 1 run in 5 innings.
