‘ERA 3.49 → 7.88’ after being eliminated from AG, and competitor Chang-mo Koo is also sluggish ‘I’m worried’

There are a total of three left-handed pitchers in the Hangzhou Asian Games baseball team to be held in September. Koo Chang-mo (NC Dinos), Lee Eui-ri, and Choi Ji-min (above KIA Tigers) were called by manager Ryu Joong-il. Among them, Gu Chang-mo and Lee Eui-ri are classified as selection resources. 

But bad news struck before it even started. Eui-ri Lee, who was cruising until the announcement, fell into a slump with an average ERA of 6.46 in 5 games in June. Gu Chang-mo, a wild card and left-handed ace, is inevitably out of power for up to five weeks due to a stress fracture in the forearm muscle. The pace of left-handed starters is not good. 

In the worst case, a prolonged injury may require replacement. As there are still three months left, the replacement discussion is impatient, but it is also necessary to keep an eye on reserve resources in case of an emergency. However, the problem is that the pace of the left-handed substitutes is not good. 

In particular, Oh Won-seok (SSG Landers), who was a leading selection resource for the Asian Games, fell into a slump right after the announcement of the national team. Prior to June 9, the day of the announcement of the national team, Oh Won-seok cruised with an average ERA of 3.49 with 4 wins and 2 losses in 10 games, but after that, he was sluggish with an average ERA of 7.88 with 1 win and 3 losses in 5 games. 

SSG coach Kim Won-hyung said, “Unfortunately, Oh Won-seok was the starting pitcher on the day of the announcement of the final entry for the Asian Games national team. He jokingly said that he was worried (I think it would be affected by the results of the entry announcement), but my performance was really bad,” he recalled at the time. Oh Won-seok gave up 5 runs in 6 innings against NC on the 9th. 

After that, Oh Won-seok fell into hunting. Oh Won-seok, who gave up 5 runs in 4 innings (3 earned runs) against the KT Wiz on June 15, seemed to come back to life by winning 5 scoreless innings against the Doosan Bears on the 21st, but on the 27th against the LG Twins, he went up again with 8 runs in 5 innings. bowed down His earned run average in June soared to 5.88. 

However, coach Kim Won-hyung said that Oh Won-seok’s sluggish performance was not greatly affected by his elimination from the Asian Games. Coach Kim, who we met before the game against the Gocheok Kiwoom Heroes on the 2nd, said, “Apart from being eliminated from the national team, I thought it was time for Oh Won-seok to lose his pace. He is a young player, so there can be ups and downs.” 카지노

In order to rebound Oh Won-seok, who fell into a slump, manager Kim Won-hyung even changed the catcher battery in the game on the 2nd. Manager Kim Won-hyung said, “I selected Lee Jae-won as the catcher to change his mood.” But even this didn’t bother him. Oh Won-seok allowed 5 runs while getting 8 hits in 4 innings. He avoided defeat with a come-from-behind victory in the other line, but the opportunity to rebound was promised next.
