Coach Hong said, “Until yesterday (11th), there was a judgment that it was possible with a large defense and large runner, but after playing the game yesterday, I thought that it would be difficult to operate as a large defensive large runner. It was decided through an interview today,” he said. I was told to prioritize treatment. Although he will fall out of the entry, he will accompany him and provide treatment and training. I believe that he will recover 100% within the period (20 days) (to be able to re-enter the entry),” he hoped for his quick return.
Although Kiwoom lost 0-1 in the game against LG in Jamsil the previous day (11th), starting pitcher Jeong Chan-heon showed impressive pitching. After allowing one run in the first inning, he blocked the LG batting line with an effective number of pitches until the sixth inning. The total number of pitches was 86.
Coach Hong Won-ki said, “If Jeong Chan-heon shows his current appearance, he will be a great help as one of the starters.” The starting pitchers are not following Seung-un recently, but if they pitch as they do now, the hitters will be more motivated,” he raised his thumb.
However, in the future, Jeong Chan-heon’s maximum number of pitches is expected to be 80-90. Director Hong said, “I would like to throw more, but from the field, it seems impossible to reach 100 to go through a year without injury. He tries to do it with 80 or 90,” he explained.
Kiwoom remained in 8th place with 14 wins and 19 losses until the match. Director Hong said, “It is baseball that scores 9 points in one inning, and it is baseball that it is not easy to score 1 point in 9 innings.” came out
