“I want to show that my worries were unfounded.”
Doosan Bears, starting with ‘Lee Seung-yeop’, met a large reef even before the start. Foreign pitcher Dylan Pyle was hit in the head by a batted ball during live pitching at the end of the Australian spring camp, and was unable to join the opening entry.
The dealer, who came to Korea after taking an additional break in Australia, was diagnosed with ‘dizziness due to a bone bruise’ as a result of a hospital examination on the 13th, requiring a recovery period of 4 weeks.
I played catch recently, but it is expected that it will take a long time to return because there is no actual game. Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop also expressed regret, saying, “Basically, it will be difficult to see him on the first team stage in April.”
Dylan’s failure to step up was a huge loss, but Doosan’s ‘young blood’ got another chance.
This season, Doosan’s Choi Seung-yong, Park Shin-ji, and Kim Dong-ju ‘auditioned’ for the 5th starting position. With Choi Seung-yong clearly occupying his place, he needed a player to fill Dylan’s void for the month of April.
Both Park Shin-ji and Kim Dong-joo have not been able to take a clear picture of their eyes yet. Park Shin-ji appeared in 2 games and threw 4 innings each, allowing 1 run and 4 runs. Kim Dong-ju also pitched twice, giving up 7 runs in 3⅓ innings in the first appearance, and giving up 1 run in 2 innings in the second appearance.
Even though there is no player who is sure to hit, he expressed his intention to watch with faith. It was hoped that Dylan’s departure would give them an impetus to enter the competition once again.
Coach Lee said, “We have to believe in our young players. It can be an opportunity for someone. When the opportunity comes, we have to seize it well. Everyone is a rival. If you do, you can become that player. I hope you don’t miss the opportunity.”
Coach Lee continued, “The vacancy of foreign players is huge. I hope to show good pitching that the worries are in vain.” 스포츠토토
Apart from the selection competition, Park Shin-ji and Kim Dong-ju are both resources to lead Doosan. All of them gave a glimpse of the possibility of settling in the 1st team by putting the ball in the middle and late 140km per hour in the spring camp.
Manager Lee said, “I prepared hard enough during the camp. Park Shin-ji and Kim Dong-ju were in good condition. It was not good while playing against the opposing team in the demonstration game, but I believe that it will get better if I adapt quickly with pride as a first-team player.” “In fact, baseball should be played in the first team,” he hoped for the awakening of young players.
