Lotte chest pains…’100-hold must-win’ Koo Seung-min switches to back of right shoulder discomfort

Lotte’s 100-hit set-up man Koo Seung-min has been replaced due to a sudden injury.

Koo Seung-min took the mound in the top of the seventh inning of a 4-3 game against the Doosan Bears at Sajik Stadium in Busan on Thursday.

He got the leadoff hitter, Yang, to fly out to third base and gave up a single to Kim Jae-hwan. He then gave up a big hit to Kim In-tae, but Yoon Dong-hee’s throw to the right fielder put two outs. Koo Seung-min got out of the jam.

However, after handling Kim In-tae, he signaled to the bench. A trainer and pitching coach Kim Hyun-wook came to the mound to check on him, and he immediately came off the mound.

Lotte explained, “Koo Seung-min felt discomfort in the back of his right shoulder and was replaced to protect the player,” and added, “There are no plans for a medical examination.” 바카라사이트
