LG Twins special firefighter Go Woo-seok is finally back.
On the 17th, 메이저사이트KBO disclosed the status of the first team entry erasure, SSG pitcher Koh Hyo-joon Han Doo-sol, Kiwoom infielder Kim Woong-bin, NC outfielder Ohjang-han pitcher Cho Min-seok, Samsung catcher Kim Min-soo, Hanwha pitcher Jang Ji-soo catcher Heo Gwan-hoe, and LG pitcher Lee Ji-gang excluded from the first team. done.
Lee Ji-gang is an LG right-handed prospect who ranked first in ERA in the Futures League last season.
He is averaging 2.1 innings and 0 earned run average in two bullpen appearances this season. However, on the 14th, against Doosan in Jamsil, 1.1 innings, 1 hit, 2 walks, 3 runs (non-own) did not post, but as a result, it showed disappointing pitching.
Here, Go Woo-seok is scheduled to return ahead of the NC game on the 18th. It seems that the intention is to register Go Woo-seok and give Lee Ji-gang more time to learn the real battle sense.
Previously, Go Woo-seok was selected for the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) national team, and felt shoulder pain during the evaluation match just before the opening of the tournament, so he voluntarily resigned.
As a result of the examination after his return to Korea, he was diagnosed with inflammation of the supraspinatus muscle of his right shoulder, and he has not been seen in the first group since the opening.
Ko Woo-seok, who has improved his condition through continuous rehabilitation training, started in the Futures League game from last week and is finally able to make his debut this season.
Ko Woo-seok recorded 42 saves and an average ERA of 1.48 in 61 appearances last season.
On the other hand, on the 16th, players who are somewhat shaken, such as Koh Hyo-jun with 4 walks and 1 run, and Kiwoom Kim Woong-bin with a batting average of 0.143 (3 hits in 21 bats) will also be reorganized in the Futures League.
