The Doosan Bears and LG Twins have confirmed the list of players to be called up for the expansion entry on September 1st.
The KBO League will expand the number of entries for the first team from 28 to 33 from the 1st of next month. Prior to the game on the 31st, LG coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop said, “Infielders Seo Kun-chang and Kim Joo-seong, catcher Kim Ki-yeon, and pitchers Oh Seok-joo and Lee Woo-chan are coming up.”
Seo Geon-chang has no first-team records since the match against Samsung in Daegu on May 14. 18 hits, 12 RBIs, 14 runs scored in 31 games, batting average of 0.207. With infielders such as Shin Min-jae, Kim Min-seong, and Jung Joo-hyun already holding their positions, it was not easy to seize a chance. Still, director Yeom Kyung-yeop believes in Seo Kun-chang’s ‘experience’. Seo Kun-chang recorded 28 hits, 20 RBIs, and 11 points in 32 games in the Futures League with a batting average of 0.252, and in the last 10 games, he showed a good batting average of 0.294.
Kim Joo-seong also adds strength to the infield. His first-team game record was 9 games and 11 at-bats, but he was waiting for a call to the first team with 53 hits (2 home runs), 27 RBIs and a batting average of 0.285 in 56 games in the Futures League.
Catcher Kim Ki-yeon joins Park Dong-won and Heo Do-hwan as backup. Kim Ki-yeon is a player who has been constantly watched by coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop since spring camp and has been praised for his growth. He has a record of 21 appearances for the first team this season. Director Yeom Kyung-yeop explained, “When Park Dong-won caught the ball, his wrist was a little bad, so I put in a catcher.”
Oh Seok-joo is recording an average ERA of 4.35 by digesting 20⅔ innings in 20 Futures League games. In five appearances in the first team this year, his performance was not bad with a total of 6 innings and 2 runs. Lee Woo-chan, who was canceled from the first team entry on the 23rd, is scheduled to register on the 2nd. He played 26⅓ innings in 25 games in the first team this year, recording 1 win, 2 losses, 3 holds, and an earned run average of 3.42.
Meanwhile, Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop announced that he would include pitchers Lee Hyeong-beom and Kim Jeong-woo, and infielders Lee Yu-chan and Park Ji-hoon in the extended entry. And Park Shin-ji, who is scheduled to start the match against Lotte on the 3rd, will fill the remaining spots.
Lee Hyeong-beom appeared in 22 games this season and played 27 innings, but showed a slightly less than expected figure with 1 win, 1 hold and an average ERA of 6.33. After scoring three runs in two consecutive games against KT on the 5th and against Hanwha on the 11th, he was canceled from the first team entry on the 13th, and will return to the first team after 20 days.
Kim Jeong-woo, who wore a Doosan uniform this year due to a trade with SSG Landers, came up to the first team in the middle of the season and sluggishly with an ERA of 8.53 in 6⅓ innings, then went down to the second team and seized the first team opportunity again. In the Futures League, it was good with 3 wins, 1 loss, 7 saves and an ERA of 1.47 in 30 games. In particular, it marked an average ERA of 0.96 in the last 10 games.
Lee Yu-chan, who was canceled from the 1st team entry on the 10th, will return to the 1st team in about 3 weeks. He appeared in 85 games for the first team this season, recording 49 hits (1 home run), 16 RBIs, 25 runs, and a batting average of 0.251. Park Ji-hoon, an all-rounder in and outfield, was registered with the 1st team on the 18th and was notified of his transfer to the 2nd team after 3 days, and is called up to the 1st team again through an extended entry.스포츠토토
Doosan plans to start in the order of Brandon Waddell, Raul Alcantara, and Park Shin-ji in the weekend series against Lotte. Manager Lee Seung-yeop said, “Now, two more pitchers enter the entry, and when it comes to Shinji, three more pitchers than before, so the pitcher replacement timing may be a little faster.” If that doesn’t go well, we have to get the pitchers behind us on standby quickly.”
Manager Lee Seung-yeop said, “Actually, no one knows whether he will throw well, nervous or sluggish if he comes up from the 2nd team and goes out in an important situation from the first game. It depends on the player himself. I hope the players will have a stronger mind.” did.
Coach Lee continued, “Rather than thinking that I came from the Futures, I am a first-team player from tomorrow, so I hope that I will be in the same situation and position and not lose in the game. I hope that I do not show weakness. will go,” he said.
