The LG Twins are dominating first place, but we cannot rest assured. A change in the starting rotation became inevitable. It appears that Lee Min-ho, who was selected in the 2020 first round, will receive another opportunity.

On the 11th, LG excluded ‘winning contractor’ Choi Won-tae from the first team entry.

Choi Won-tae, who changed to a striped uniform on July 29th through a 1-3 trade, lived up to expectations by pitching 6 scoreless innings against Doosan in Jamsil on July 30th.

However, he did not do well after that, conceding goals in six consecutive games. During this period, he only had 1 win, 2 losses, and an ERA of 10.13. Including all 7 games he appeared in after the transfer, he only had 32⅔ innings, 2 wins, 2 losses, and an ERA of 8.27.

With the addition of Choi Won-tae, the domestic starting lineup was stabilized and the top 5 starters were clearly formed, but after about a month, change became inevitable again.

LG appears to be trying to give Choi Won-tae time to reorganize by dropping him to the second team.

LG was preparing a starting pitcher for the second team in case of poor performance or injury. So, there is a pitcher to fill Choi Won-tae’s vacancy.

Lee Min-ho, who won 12 games last year and played the role of fourth starter, is expected to receive a chance. Coach Yeom Kyung-yeop also mentioned Lee Min-ho’s name as the next runner, so he is waiting for his return to the first team. Kim Yun-sik and Son Ju-young, who were already preparing for a call-up along with Lee Min-ho, have already been called up. Now it’s Lee Min-ho’s turn.스포츠토토

Lee Min-ho was expunged from the entry list due to an elbow injury early in the season. He returned after about a month, but was unable to regain his former condition and was sent down to the second team again on June 23rd. He left the first team with no wins in 5 games, 2 losses, and an ERA of 5.03.

Lee Min-ho, who has regained his fitness by playing in the starting rotation in the Futures League, is showing signs of revival. He gave up 1 run in 5⅔ innings against Hanwha on August 18, and gave up 1 run (visa book) in 6 innings against Samsung on August 26, allowing 2 hits, 4 strikeouts, and 2 hits in 6 innings. In his most recent appearance, against the Goyang Heroes on the 5th, he showed off a perfect pitching of 6 innings, 3 hits, no hits, 4 walks, 7 strikeouts, and no runs. He played 17⅔ innings in 3 games and swept 3 wins. His earned run average is only 0.51.

It is definitely a good signal that he is ready to return to the first team. Attention is focused on whether Lee Min-ho, who was called LG’s hope after winning 12 games last year, will show his presence again at the end of the second half of the season.
