On Monday without baseball, five players were notified of the second division.
On the 21st, the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) announced the status of registration and cancellation of first-team entries. There are no registered players, and there are a total of 5 players who went down to the 2nd team.
The most notable name is Kiwoom Heroes veteran outfielder Lee Yong-gyu. Lee Yong-gyu was continuing his sluggish performance with 35 hits in 152 at-bats and 11 RBIs in 49 games this season with a batting average of 0.230. He seldom rebounded, with his batting average dropping further in the second half (0.206 in 21 games) compared to the first half (0.250 in 28 games).
Lee Yong-kyu also wore the captain’s armband in place of Lee Jung-hoo, who left due to an injury at the end of last month. On the 2nd, Kiwoom coach Hong Won-ki said, “There was only Lee Yong-gyu. (For the rest of the season) I digest the captain. In order to work hard for the rest of the game and the season, I myself became the captain for the team in a difficult situation, “he explained the background.
However, Kiwoom, who could not just watch as the sluggishness continued, decided to give Lee Yong-gyu time to reorganize. The player who will lead the team in place of Lee Yong-gyu, who is absent, is expected to be revealed ahead of the match against the Gocheok Doosan Bears on the 22nd.
The KIA Tigers excluded pitchers Hwang Dong-ha and Park Jun-pyo from the first-team entry. Hwang Dong-ha, who played against Won Tae-in as a starter against Samsung Lions in Daegu on the 20th, withdrew without a win or loss with 4 hits (2 home runs) and 1 walk and 3 runs in 4⅔ innings. Although he couldn’t bring victory to his team, he confirmed the possibility by doing his part even though the game was stopped due to rain for over an hour.메이저사이트
Park Jun-pyo, who played an active role as the team’s key bullpen agent in 2019 and 2020, broke away from the front line five days after being called up to the first team. After suffering from sluggishness in 2021 and last year, this season also failed to live up to the team’s expectations with an average ERA of 5.17 in 21 games, 15⅔ innings and 3 holds. In his most recent appearance, against Samsung on the 20th, he recorded 2 walks in ⅓ innings and had to be content with catching 1 out count while dealing with 3 batters.
In addition, Samsung left-handed pitcher Park Se-woong and Doosan infielder Park Ji-hoon also headed to the second team. In the KIA game on the 20th, when Park Se-woong came up to the first team, he made a relief mound with 1 company and 3rd base in the top of the 6th inning, when the team was ahead 3-0, but after Choi Hyung-woo’s walk, he dedicated 3 points to Socrates Brito and handed the mound to Woo Kyu-min. In the end, after one day, I moved back to the 2nd group.
