The Lotte Giants are having difficulties due to poor physical condition of their players.
After the game against the Hanwha Eagles, which was scheduled to be held at Hanwha Life Eagles Park in Daejeon on the 20th, was canceled due to rain, Lotte acting coach Lee Jong-woon met with reporters and sighed, “It’s difficult because there are injuries.”
This season, Lotte is ranked 7th with 58 wins and 65 losses. ‘Bomde’ showed off its power by recording 14 wins and 8 losses in April and 13 wins and 9 losses in May. However, in June, both pitches began to decline and began to collapse. In June, they recorded 9 wins and 16 losses, and in July, they fell further to 5 wins and 12 losses. July’s performance was the lowest in the league. The ranking, which was at the top, suddenly fell to 7th place.
In August, we lost our head coach. Coach Larry Sutton voluntarily resigned at the end of August due to health reasons. Head coach Lee Jong-woon is leading the remainder of the season as acting head coach.
As of September, they are recording 7 wins, 7 losses, and a winning rate of .500, but they are maintaining their ranking rather than moving up.
This is because the number of injured continued to increase. On the 9th, Kim Sang-soo left the team due to a ruptured adductor muscle, and on the 16th, Koo Seung-min was removed from the first team due to accumulated fatigue. Two Pilseungjo members disappeared at once. The two players combined for 38 holds. It is by no means small.
However, even Jin Seung-hyun, who filled their place, was expunged from the first team on the 20th.
Acting manager Lee Jong-woon expressed regret, saying, “After Koo Seung-min and Kim Sang-soo left the team due to injury, Jin Seung-hyun was brought up, but Jin Seung-hyun is also not in good condition. We need to have other players fill in for him.”
According to Lotte officials, Jin Seung-hyun is also tired. He was expunged to protect the player.
Jin Seung-hyun has 2 wins, 2 losses, 1 hold, and an average ERA of 5.86 in 24 games and 27⅔ innings this season.
Captain Ahn Chi-hong is also not in good shape. He is suffering from cold. So Jin Seung-hyun and Ahn Chi-hong were expunged from the first team that day. Kim Do-gyu and outfielder Kim Min-soo were called up.먹튀검증
Acting manager Lee Jong-woon felt that the team atmosphere was down and called a meeting with the players. Acting manager Lee said, “The current team situation is that the players who were with us are leaving due to poor health, and Chihong is also not in a good mood. So, we had a meeting with the players. I hope that the existing players will do well as they are, and that there will be no opportunity for them to do well.” “The players who received it said that they should think positively about this as an opportunity. Although there will be many difficult aspects, I hope the players will fight a little more,” he said.
