LG Twins rookie sidearm pitcher Park Myeong-geun (19) will be delayed a bit before returning to the first team.

On the 18th, LG coach Yeom Kyung-yeop said, “Park Myung-geun is slowly thinking of calling him into the first team. He has a bad elbow, so he is down to the second team, so we plan to give him more time.”

Park Myung-geun, who was the only LG rookie to join the opening entry and proved his competitiveness in the first team, was placed on the injured list (IL) on the 7th of this month. He complained of discomfort in his right elbow. The LG coaching staff decided to give him a break that combines rehabilitation.아톰카지노

Park Myeong-geun was also on the All-Star Game roster, but was replaced by Kim Jin-seong due to an injury. His performance in the first half was excellent. He recorded 4 wins, 5 holds, 5 saves, and an earned run average (ERA) of 3.25 in 36 games, securing a place in the winning group even in the solid LG bullpen.

There are several reasons why LG decided not to rush Park Myung-keun’s return. First of all, he was a rookie. Park Myung-geun pitched many innings as pitchers who suffered injuries and sluggishness continued to appear in the bullpen at the beginning of the season. He was responsible for 36 innings until the first half. Since he is still a rookie who is not accustomed to long-term races, fatigue may have accumulated more.

The LG coaching staff also believes that Park’s role will grow during the Asian Games. Among the LG bullpen pitchers, Jung Woo-young, who is a winning group, and Ko Woo-seok, a finishing pitcher, have been selected for the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games national team. While they are gone, Park Myung-geun and Ham Deok-joo must support the bullpen. For this reason, it was judged that there was no need to rush Park Myung-geun’s return.

Park Myeong-geun’s return will be delayed, but with the start of the second half, Yoo Young-chan and Baek Seung-hyun will return to the first team. Jung Woo-young is also expected to be able to operate normally. Jung Woo-young, who was excluded from the 1st team entry on the 13th due to a bad back, can join the 1st team from the first game of the second half on the 21st according to a new rule that can be retroactively applied up to 3 days for players who have been on the 10-day IL. Jung Woo-young’s last appearance in the first half was against the resignation Lotte Giants on the 9th.
