Eui-ji Yang is helpful just by being on the bench.
Doosan Bears coach Lee Seung-yeop welcomed the return of Eui-ji Yang in an interview before the game with Kiwoom Heroes of the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 22nd .

Eui-Ji Yang, who is recording a batting average of 302.3 (94 hits in 291 bats), 9 homers, 44 RBIs, and OPS of .906 in 87 games this season, has been unable to play since the match against KT on the 5th due to a side injury. On the 8th, he was eventually placed on the injured list, and on the 18th he was expelled from the first team entry.
Coach Lee Seung-yeop said, “Yang Eui-ji will not be able to start in this series. He hasn’t played a single game since his injury, so he needs to focus on improving his game sense. Also, the injured part is a sensitive area, so today I will go out to the extent of a pinch hit. I’m not going to play defense,” he explained.
Coach Lee Seung-yeop said, “Looking at the batting practice, I haven’t hit 100% yet.” Since you are a really sensitive person, you may feel a little anxious. So, in this three-game series, I try to focus on the sense of the game without overdoing it as much as possible.” “Eui-ji Yang is helpful just by being on the bench. He expected the effect of Yang’s return, saying, “I think he will be able to play in the game with a changed atmosphere.”
On this day, Doosan had Jo Su-haeng (center fielder) – Kim Jae-ho (shortstop) – Jose Rojas (left fielder) – Yang Seok-hwan (1st baseman) – Kim Jae-hwan (designated hitter) – Kim In-tae (right fielder) – Kang Seung-ho (2nd baseman) – Jang Seung-hyeon (catcher) – Heo Gyeong-min (third baseman) formed the starting lineup. The starting pitcher is Raul Alcantara.
Coach Lee Seung-yeop, who announced that he would adjust the starting rotation over the weekend, said, “Today Alcantara, tomorrow Brandon, and the day after tomorrow Kim Dong-ju will go as it is. However, on weekends, Gwak Bin goes first, followed by Kim Min-gyu. When Kim Dong-ju and Kim Min-gyu were matched, the 4th and 5th starters would stick together, so I adjusted the starting order to drop them. Kwak Bin threw only 71 pitches in the last pitch. After a four-day break, he asked if he was okay with the mound, and he said it was possible.”
In this game, Park Chi-guk and Kim Myung-shin take a break. Manager Lee Seung-yeop said, “Kim Myung-shin and Park Chi-guk fought together in the last two games, but the number of pitches was a bit high. Today, I try to avoid writing as much as possible. Pil Seung-jo has Hong Kun-hee, and Kim Kang-ryul is in good condition, so I plan to use it when the situation comes today.”
