Jang Won-joon (39, Doosan Bears) will once again challenge for 130 wins in his personal career.
Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop announced a change in the starting rotation ahead of the Gocheok Kiwoom Heroes match on the 18th. Jang Won-jun, a veteran left-hander with 129 wins in his personal career, joins the starting lineup.
Doosan moved left-hander Lee Won-jae, who started against Kiwoom on the 17th, back to the 2nd team after a day, and right-hander Ko Bong-jae joined the 1st-team entry. Doosan, which is running alternative selections due to injuries to Dylan Pyle and Kwak Bin, has been vacated due to the departure of Lee Won-jae. Jang Won-joon enters this place.
Director Lee said, “Jang Won-joon is currently in the first team. As long as he doesn’t have any problems with his physical condition, he will start the match on the 23rd.” Doosan will have a home game against the Samsung Lions at Jamsil Stadium on the 23rd.안전놀이터
Jang Won-joon started 4 games in the Futures (2nd team) league this year and is recording 1 win and 1 loss with an ERA of 3.60. In his most recent appearance, against SSG Landers on the 10th, he also became the winning pitcher with 5 strikeouts and 3 runs in 6 innings.
Manager Lee said, “Jang Won-joon performed better in the Futures League than Lee Won-jae. I think (Lee Won-jae) had a good experience and went down (to the 2nd team),” he explained.
Jang Won-jun, who started his professional life after receiving the first pick from the Lotte Giants during the 2004 rookie draft, has been active at Doosan since 2015. He showed a steady appearance as a starting pitcher and did his part as a member of Doosan’s powerful starter’Fantastic 4′, but from 2018 he fell into a slump as if he had entered an’aging curve’. He has not added a win since 2018 after three wins.
