Jo Gye-hyeon, chairman of the KBO Strength Enhancement Committee, which selects baseball players and runs the national team, said on the 12th, “We plan to watch the game as much as possible together with coach Ryu Joong-il and the national team coaches and decide on replacement players.”

An official familiar with the national baseball team’s situation also said, “I understand that a replacement player will be decided next week after watching the professional baseball schedule this week.”

The strength enhancement committee will meet next week to confirm replacement players and announce the final national team roster after approval by the Korea Baseball Softball Association’s Performance Enhancement Committee.

Currently, players belonging to 10 professional baseball teams will play until the 22nd and then be called up to the national team.

Next, they will begin their first training at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 23rd, refine their organizational skills with a practice game on the 26th, and then board a plane to Hangzhou, China on the 28th.

Korean baseball takes its first step towards its fourth straight loss against Hong Kong on October 1st.

The national team must select a replacement for Lee Jeong-hoo (Kiwoom Heroes), who had ankle surgery and ended the season early.

We must also keep an eye on the condition of left-handed pitcher Koo Chang-mo (NC Dinos), who entered actual pitching late due to symptoms such as left arm forearm (between elbow and wrist) muscle damage and left arm stress fracture.

Koo Chang-mo has recently made three bullpen pitches every other day, and this week he plans to improve his sense of practice by throwing live pitches with the batter standing up.

According to the NC club, Koo Chang-mo plans to pitch 2 innings on the 13th by throwing 15 balls per inning through live pitching. After checking his velocity and condition, he plans to pitch in the second-team game against Sangmu on the weekend.

Right-handed pitcher Jang Hyun-seok (Masan Yongma High School), the only amateur player on the national team, has recently resumed pitching and is likely to head to Hangzhou without major problems.

National team bullpen coach Dae-hyun Jeong is closely examining Jang Hyun-seok’s pitching, and Jang Hyun-seok is scheduled to take the mound in a practice game soon to strengthen his shoulder.

Chairman Cho said, “Taiwan’s power is quite strong, and the skills of Japanese professional baseball players are absolutely formidable, so it is expected to be a difficult competition.” He added, “The national team must win the group match against Taiwan on October 2 to challenge for the gold medal. “I am focusing on developing a winning strategy with the coaches,” he explained.
