SSG announced changes to its first-team roster ahead of its fourth game of the season against the Doosan Bears on April 26 at Jamsil Stadium. Rookie pitcher Song Young-jin, who started against LG the previous day (25th) and took the loss with six runs in two innings, was moved to the second team.
Instead, Lee Kun-wook was promoted to the first team. Manager Kim Won-hyung said, “I think Young-jin should go to the second team once. The more he plays, the worse he is. His pitches are shaky.” “He pitched well in the beginning. I thought he was a stable pitcher, but I could see that he was shaking. I need to find the cause.”
On the 27th, Choo Shin-soo will be 메이저놀이터 dropped from the first team roster. “His ankle hasn’t fully recovered yet,” Kim said. So I don’t have a good feeling. He needs time to recover. I couldn’t take him off the roster today. I will be out tomorrow.”
“I’ll call him up after he’s fully recovered and played a game with the second team. It’s not easy to ask him to do that, and he’s having a hard time doing it himself.” Choi Jun-woo will replace Shin-soo Choo.
“When you’re in the first team, you have to help. I didn’t help at all. I’ve been thinking about it since a week ago. My leg was also injured. I can’t get on base when I’m out there. It doesn’t help. Even if I get on base, I’m not in a position to go one more base. I need to rest and recover,” he said about his physical condition.
Meanwhile, SSG will call up submarine pitcher Jong-hoon Park against Doosan today. Jong-hoon is 1-4 with a 4.86 ERA in seven games this season. He has lost two straight. He took the loss against Lotte on April 19, giving up three runs in four innings.
Jong-hoon Park is looking for his second win. He took the loss against Doosan on March 30, but pitched well with six innings of one-run ball.
