LG Twins’ Lee Sang-young will enter the starting rotation as soon as he is discharged from the military after completing his military service with the Sangmu Baseball Club.
LG, led by head coach Yoon Kyung-yup, will play a home game against the Hanwha Eagles of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at Hanwha Life Eagles Park in Daejeon on the 9th. Ahead of the game, LG cancelled the first-team rosters of pitchers Kim Yun-sik and Lee Ji-gang and added Chae Ji-sun and Kim Dong-gyu to the roster. Kim Dong-gyu, a rookie this year, received his first call-up.스포츠토토
Kim Yun-sik made a start against Gochuk Kiwoom on the previous day, the 8th, but the outcome was poor in both content and outcome as he gave up seven runs on 12 hits in five innings. He has lost his last three games in a row. LG decided to use Lee Sang-young, who will be retired on the 12th, in Kim’s place.
Lee has been a regular in the starting rotation for the Commerce since last year, and was so good in the Futures League this year that he won eight straight games in nine appearances. The streak came to an end when he took the loss against the KIA on the 7th, but his performance wasn’t too bad as he allowed three runs in five innings with eight strikeouts. His ERA in nine games and 51⅓ innings is 2.63.
Next up is Kim Yun-sik’s turn on the 14th against Jamsil Samsung Electronics. On the same day, Lee Sang-young will make his first-team return. It will be exactly one week since his last appearance in the Futures League. Manager Yoon Kyung-yup said, “Yoon-sik’s back is not perfect, so it was a good time for him to rest. He’ll have one back injection and some preparation. Lee Sang-young will continue to pitch in the rotation.”
