Benjamin was substituted after allowing three hits, two walks, and three runs in an inning at a game against the Doosan Bears in Jamsil on April 12. He then asked the team to rest. He felt uncomfortable in his elbow.

After focusing on recovery for three weeks, Benjamin returned to action against the Suwon Hanwha Eagles on Saturday and played four innings. He completed the build-up by throwing 61 pitches.

Benjamin started the game in the top of the first inning, allowing a walk to leadoff hitter Hong Chang-ki. However, it struck out Moon. Then, when Moon was at bat, Hong tried to steal second base, but Jang Sung-woo succeeded in shooting. Moon later hit a double, but Austin Dean was struck out.

Benjamin got a hit from leadoff hitter Park Dong-won in the top of the second inning, but struck out Koo Bon-hyuk, Park Hae-min and Kim Min-soo. In the third inning, he struck out Shin Min-jae and grounded out Hong Chang-ki to the third base. Moon Sung-joo then walked straight, but Moon Bok-kyung grounded out to the second base.

In the top of the fourth inning, Benjamin allowed a hit to Choi Myung-kyung with two outs, but blocked Park Hae-min with a fly ball to left field. In the top of the fifth inning, it was the first three outs in the game. After taking the mound in the sixth inning, he caught leadoff hitter Ahn Ik-hoon with a fly ball to left field, allowed a walk to Moon Bok-kyung, and handed over the baton to Kim Min.

While Benjamin did a good job without losing a point, KT’s batting lineup scored eight points. Even after Benjamin went down, he added three more points to widen the gap. LG recovered two points in the top of the eighth inning, but after that, both teams failed to draw points and ended up with KT’s 11-2 victory.

Speaking to reporters after the game, Benjamin said, “I’m going in a good direction right now. The treatment is going well every day. I’m satisfied and happy with the way he showed on the mound today.”

Benjamin asked for a three-week rest on his own. It was his will to throw in a better manner. Manager Lee Kang-chul and pitching coach Je Chun-mo also accepted the offer. It was an important moment to hit, but Benjamin’s request was granted.

Benjamin said, “I felt sorry, but I made a good decision for the team because when I threw in a 100% form, it resulted in good results. Fortunately, I’m grateful because the coach and the pitching coach gave me enough time to heal. I think I just need to show good performances from now on.”

Benjamin is strong against LG. He is the “LG Killer.” He pitched in a total of eight showdowns with LG, recording five wins, one loss, and an ERA of 1.32 WHIP 0.86 in 47 ⅔.

“I don’t know why. I feel comfortable because I threw a lot against LG. What I want is that other teams also hate me,” Benjamin said of his good pitching against LG. “My goal is to always be ahead of all other teams. I want to leave good records against other teams as well.”

Benjamin will start in the match against the Kia Tigers in Suwon on May 15. He will then take the mound in the match against LG in Jamsil on May 21. He will start in matches against both top-ranked teams.

“When I meet a top-ranked team in the league, I tend to concentrate a lot. Of course, both Kia and LG are good teams, so I will perform in a good condition 100 percent,” he said.
