Samsung Lions closer Oh Seung-hwan (40) has been dropped from the first team roster after showing “uncomfortable feelings” 메이저놀이터 while off the mound.
Samsung removed Oh Seung-hwan from the first-team roster and registered Kim Si-hyun (24) ahead of the visiting KT WIZ at Katie Wiz Park in Suwon on April 18.

There was also a “reprimand in the nature of a reprimand” for the team’s most senior player’s inability to control his emotions on the field.
According to Samsung, head coach Park Jin-man confronted Oh Seung-hwan and asked him to “think about his behavior one more time.”
“Oh Seung-hwan needed to recover psychologically, so I sent him down to the second team,” Park told reporters.
Oh came into the game in the bottom of the eighth inning with a 6-4 lead against KT in Suwon on Saturday and gave up a bunt single to Jung Joon-young and a timely double to Park Kyung-soo over the center field fence.
Worse for Samsung, center fielder Kim Hyun-jun misjudged the drop point of Park’s hit.

Director Park Jin-man analyzed that Seung-hwan’s emotional expression showed his “psychological anxiety.
After interviewing him, Park ordered him to play in the second team.
