Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop announced the reorganization of the starting lineup and bullpen ahead of the KT Wiz game in Jamsil on the 15th. Right-hander sidearm Choi Won-jun (29) will head to the bullpen, and left-hander Choi Seung-yong (22) will join the starting rotation instead.
Choi Won-joon started against the Hanwha Eagles in Daejeon on the 13th and was knocked out early after 1.1 innings and 4 runs. He was eventually suspended from the bullpen due to his continued exposure of control anxiety in his recent starts. Director Lee said, “Choi Won-joon will be waiting in the bullpen from this week. It seemed that the ball had lost its power. Control seemed to be a problem too, but a pitcher who mainly throws fastballs and sliders must have good control. But he had a lot of mistakes,” he explained.
Director Lee continued, “Choi Seung-yong is the replacement starter. Although our team lacks a left-handed bullpen compared to other teams, we need to block them well in the starting lineup. There are now less than 50 games left in the regular season. Even if it’s a little difficult, you need to devote yourself to the team.”
Coach Lee even replaced the finishing pitcher. The position of Hong Geon-hee (31), who has been a built-in closer from the beginning of the season, is changed to a midfielder. Director Lee said, “Hong Kun-hee seemed to be feeling the burden after the Samsung Lions match on the 9th (0.1 innings, 3 runs). In the future, it is planned to be released in episodes 7 and 8, which are a little more comfortable. Jeong Cheol-won will be the finishing pitcher.”
Meanwhile, main catcher Yang Eui-ji (36), who was canceled from the first team entry on the 8th due to a side injury, will undergo a hospital checkup on the 18th. Director Lee said, “For now, we are moving lightly. When he returns this time, he has to complete the season. Until Yang Eui-ji arrives, the players have to endure well,” he emphasized.
