Samsung Lions manager Park Jin-man complained that it was difficult to manage the roster.
Coach Park confessed that there was a lot of burden on the fielders and pitching staff because there were many players who left due to consecutive injuries and personal circumstances ahead of the 2023 Shinhan Bank Sol KBO League Kiwoom Heroes game at Gocheok Sky Dome on the 18th.
On this day, Lee Won-seok complained of discomfort during practice and withdrew from the starting list. Previously, Lee Won-seok complained of discomfort in his left thigh during a base run against the Lotte Giants on the 16th and was replaced.
Director Park expressed regret, saying, “(Lee Won-seok) complained of discomfort in the same area as when he fell out during the game on the 16th. We need to check it right away.”
Samsung is already in a state of severe power loss as outfielders Kim Hyun-joon, Kim Tae-hoon, and Kim Dong-yeop and catchers Kim Jae-seong and Kim Tae-gun left due to injuries. In particular, the damage to the catchers was serious, leaving only Kang Min-ho as the main catcher.
Difficulties also overlapped with the pitching staff management. This is because foreign pitcher Albert Suarez was left out, and Yang Chang-seop, who started the season as the fifth starter, was sluggish.
Suarez left for the United States on the 17th due to personal reasons and was eliminated from the first team on the same day. 토토사이트
Yang Chang-seop, the fifth starter, showed extreme sluggishness with an ERA of 9.82, throwing 7⅔ innings in two appearances.
Coach Park explained that he plans to join Lee Jae-hee and Jang Pil-joon in the starting lineup, saying, “The starting lineup needs a lot of change.” Yang Chang-seop moves to Long Relief.
Another starting resource, Baek Jung-hyun, is also sluggish, but due to the lack of starting pitchers, he continues to pitch as a starting pitcher.
Manager Park sighed, “It has no choice but to be. He is attracting all players.”
At the same time, coach Park is thinking of giving pitcher Lee Ho-seong a starting class. Previously, Lee Ho-seong was eliminated from the first group on the 16th.
Coach Park said, “I’m trying to give Lee Ho-seong a starting class quickly.” .
Lee Ho-seong, who joined Samsung in the 8th place in the first round last year, made three relief appearances this season, allowing only two runs in seven innings, showing potential for growth.
