“It could be Woo Young-i”…LG, which needed to organize traffic, turns commander’s words into ‘reality’

It was somewhat expected. For the first time since the start of the season, one of the LG Twins’ key bullpen pieces, Jung Woo-young, has been sent to the second team.

The Korean Baseball Organization (KBO) announced the roster additions and deletions on Thursday, and there were a total of nine players who were sent down to the second team without a roster spot, including Jeong. The reason is not injury, but reorganization.

Jung made his debut in the first team in 2019, and until last year, he had been a stalwart, playing more than 50 games and 50 innings every year, becoming a titleholder for the first time in his career with 35 holds in the 2022 season.

However, Jung began to falter early in the season, and that trend continued through June. After seemingly rebounding in July with an 8-3 record and a 1.13 ERA in eight games, he struggled again in the month. In August, he went 3-1 with a 12.00 ERA in five games 토토사이트.

This season, LG could have been in trouble as not only Jeong Woo-young, but also Go Woo-seok and Lee Jung-yong were struggling at the same time.

However, four new pitchers – Ham Deok-ju, Park Myung-geun, Yoo Young-chan, and Baek Seung-hyun – were able to take the pressure off the team. Their presence was such that the team was able to maintain its momentum from the first half to the second half, and LG coach Yeom Kyung-yup thanked them every time.

Add to that the fact that Lee Jung-yong has recently survived a five-man competition to earn a starting spot, and fellow competitor Lee Ji-gang has been moved to long relief, and things have gotten more comfortable. Park Myung-geun, who was released from the first team for administrative reasons, will be in full practice mode on the 12th for the Futures League game against SSG Landers. He will be called up to the first team as early as the 15th and as late as the 17th.

Naturally, LG needed to ‘clear the traffic’. Before the 15th game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League against the Kiwoom Heroes at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the 13th, manager Yoon Kyung-yeop said, “Since Lee Ji-gang is going to long relief, someone has to be left out, and I’m thinking about it.” “It could be Jung Woo-young,” he said, hinting at the possibility of expunging Jung Woo-young.

A day after the coach mentioned Jung Woo-young’s name, LG immediately demoted him to the second team. This means that the team has a solid roster, and no player is guaranteed a spot. This is true even for players with a history of holding.
