There is no obvious opportunity. It may have been unavoidable until now, but not anymore. The timing of Lee Min-ho’s return to the first team, which LG selected as the first nomination ahead of the 2020 season, has become unclear. Now, you cannot get a first-team opportunity just by building a good body.
Lee Min-ho started the game against NC Dinos in the ‘2023 KBO Futures League’ held in Changwon on the 2nd and recorded 2 hits, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts and 2 runs in 3 innings. With the start of the first inning, he sent out three batters in a row to score first, and allowed an extra point instead of inducing a double hit against batter Kim Hyung-joon in the fourth inning. The 2nd and 3rd times were blocked with a tripartite offense.토토사이트
This match was Lee Min-ho’s first appearance in the Futures League this season. Lee Min-ho gave up 3 hits and 2 walks while giving up 3 runs in 1 inning in a match against NC on June 22 and came off the mound. He was in a state where he could not recover with his speed falling, perhaps because of the forearm flexor injury that he had at the beginning of the season. The next day, he was immediately expelled from the first team and entered the so-called ‘summer camp’.
At the time, LG coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop said, “We have to rebuild our bodies. My speed fell by more than 10km per hour. I think I’m not feeling well. I told the training part and they made me rebuild my body like a camp. It’s not important to go to the game, but to rebuild my body. I thought it would be important to make it. It’s our (coaching staff) fault that the body wasn’t built properly.”
He added, “The most important thing before returning in the second half is to find one’s ball and come back. I think the winner is in the second half. It is not possible to set up until the second half and continue auditioning. , should be the 4th starter,” he emphasized.
However, this plan changed drastically with the one trade of Choi Won-tae on the 29th of last month. No one knows when Lee Min-ho’s return to the first team will be. For now, yes.
Coach Yeom Kyung-yeop explained that the time had come for Lee Min-ho to put in the Futures League ahead of Kiwoom’s match on the 2nd, but “Lee Min-ho’s opportunity to start in the first team doesn’t come right away. He has to wait. Monday’s game should be held or so.”
The LG starting rotation has been reorganized into Adam Plutko, Casey Kelly, Choi Won-tae, Lim Chan-gyu, and Lee Jeong-yong. As Plutko was delayed due to the confirmation of Corona 19, Lee Ji-gang became the starter one more time, but the fact that these five people are in the starting rotation for the time being does not change.
When Kim Yun-shik returns, Lee Jeong-yong plans to return to the bullpen. Kim Yun-sik entered the actual battle long before Lee Min-ho. On the 12th of last month, he threw 1 inning in a match against SSG, and on the 30th, in the match against Sangmu, he performed well with 5⅔ innings and 2 runs. After completing the last inspection in the Futures League game against Lotte on the 5th, he will return to the first team in the match against Kiwoom in Jamsil on the 11th. There is no place for Lee Min-ho to enter.
When LG recruited Choi Won-tae, it issued a warning to pitchers who had been regarded as promising players, saying that there was no chance that would come just for them. Lee Min-ho was the first to be influenced. Even Lee Jung-yong, the temporary 5th starter, who just happened to play in the 1st team game on the 2nd, was responsible for the first 5 innings after his debut.
