‘A consensus on a crime → checking potential’ Kim Yu-sung’s first opportunity to select in two years…”The starting lineup is on the verge of collapse.” Should we save Doosan

Doosan manager Lee Seung-yeop couldn’t hide his embarrassment ahead of the game against the NC Dinos at Jamsil Stadium on the 25th. This is because ace Raul Alcantara, who previously missed one rotation due to his elbow discomfort, is in a situation where he has to miss another rotation. Alcantara has been cruising with one win, one loss and a 2.30 ERA in five games since the opening of the game against Kiwoom Heroes (the second game of the double header) on the 21st, but he is causing concern due to a sprained elbow in the early part of the season.토토사이트

While Brandon Waddell suddenly had to cancel his start due to back pain, even Alcantara complained of elbow discomfort, raising issues of injury to both one-two punch. Right now, uncertainty remains over who will be the starting pitcher for Thursday.

Kim Dong-joo, the fifth starter, has also been removed from the primary league as he struggled with seven runs and three earned in three ⅔ innings in a game against Kiwoom on Sunday (the first game of doubleheader). Manager Lee Seung-yeop has decided to include Kim in the absence of Kim. “We have to start with Kim tomorrow, but we have to see what happens the day after tomorrow. We have to discuss it again after the training session.”

Kim Yu-seong, who had been wearing scarlet letters due to school violence even before joining the team, entered Korea University after NC withdrew his nomination, and was selected by Doosan again after participating in the “early” draft to seek another chance. After joining Doosan, he agreed with the victim last year to obtain a kind of indulgence. However, he failed to show his presence on the mound, allowing seven runs in six ⅓ innings and an ERA of 9.95.

Instead, he pitched in the Futures League that deserved a chance for the first team. He secured the win by allowing two runs in six innings against Hanwha on the 5th, and became another winning pitcher by throwing one run in seven innings against Lotte on the 11th. He pitched six and seven innings from the beginning of the season, recording “post-futures league-class” performance. As Doosan’s first-team starting pitchers fell into injury and slump, Kim Yu-seong got a chance.

Kim Yu-seong started to show his potential in the Miyazaki Education League last year. He pitched in four games and recorded an ERA of 0.60 in 15 innings. Although he had weaknesses in his ball control in the first division, he showed improved pitching performance in the Education League by striking out 14 and allowing only six walks. His maximum fastball speed reached 150 kilometers per hour. He was classified as a reserve resource for starting players while going through the spring camp, and after a series of preparations in the Futures League, he gained an opportunity in about a month after the opening of the season due to the departure of starting pitchers.

▶ “Kwakbin is the only one” Doosan’s opening starting rotation in crisis

Raul Alcantara – first team canceled on 25th due to elbow discomfort (sprained)
BRANDON WADEL – First team cleared due to back pain, possible return 28 days
Kwak Bin – 6 games winless, 4 losses, 5.35 ERA
Choi Won-Jun – Cancelled April 3rd, returned April 19th, 2-1, 8.66 ERA in 4 games
Kim Dong-ju – The first team was canceled on the 22nd, winning one game, losing five games, and an ERA of 5.48

“I’m having a hard time right now. I prepared for the opening rotation of five players, but Kwak Bin is the only player I’m keeping from the beginning. What can I do even if it’s hard? I don’t have any money, but I need to fill it up again. (Choi) Jun-ho threw well (one run in five innings on April 24) and I think if the players coming up from Futures do well, the team will become better,” coach Lee Seung-yeop said. “We have no choice but to pin our hope on Kim Yu-seong.

Still, Doosan overpowered him by allowing one run in six ⅔ innings. Prior to the game, Choi had a lackluster ERA of 13.09. At the game against NC on Sunday, he pitched clean and tidy until the sixth inning without losing a point to give his team a win. On Sunday, substitute starter Choi Jun-ho displayed his potential by allowing one run in five innings. If Kim Yu-seong, who will take the mound on Sunday, can display his performance in the Futures League in the first division as well, manager Lee Seung-yeop will likely have fewer chances to sigh.

Meanwhile, the Hanwha Eagles announced that Hwang Joon-seo, the No. 1 overall pick, will be the starting pitcher at the match against the Doosan Bears on Wednesday. In six games in the first division, including two starts, Hwang had one win and one loss with an ERA of 1.15. In all of the games he started, he pitched well, allowing one run in five innings. In the game against Samsung that was the starting pitcher on Tuesday last week, he ended up losing even though he pitched so well.
