“I’ve been preparing a lot” … LG Mound ‘Key’ 1R Nominee, It’s unexpectedly broken. Why?

Left-handed pitcher Lee Sang-young (24), who was considered key point of LG Twins’ bullpen this year. However, LG manager Yeom Kyung-yeop plans to watch him slowly. Why.

Head coach Yeom talked about Lee Sang-young, the “expected player,” ahead of the exhibition game against the NC Dinos in the “2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League” held at NC Dinos Park in Changwon on the 14th.고소득알바

Lee Sang-young is a left-handed pitcher who joined LG as the fifth overall pick in the first round of the second round of the 2019 KBO League Rookie Draft. He has been growing up since this season’s spring camp under the strict training of the head coach.

“Those who cared the most about Son Joo-young and Lee Sang-young were Son Joo-young, and as Son and Lee Sang-young visited their McConnick, they looked forward to this season,” the coach said smiling. His actual speed also jumped to 145 kilometers per hour. Expectations were high. He pitched in two exhibition games this year, giving up two scoreless innings in two appearances. The samples are small, but he is cruising.

In a season that started strong, something unexpected happened to Lee Sang-young, who had a good start. I think I will take a break from the opening entry.

This is because he failed to make the list of nine-man bullpen players that manager Yeom is planning. The head coach said, “Lee Sang-young has prepared a lot in the U.S., but it’s not good because he came to Korea. I think he needs to go back. Kim Yu-young, Yun Ho-sol, Jung Ji-hyun, and Lee Jong-joon are likely to add entries from the four players. And Lee Woo-chan also said, “If you gain good experience, you can use the nine middle pitchers as you did last year.” He added, “(Lee Sang-young) has a ball power of up to 145 kilometers in the U.S., but it’s not good here. I think he will delay it because his shoulders are tight.”

LG desperately needed Lee Sang-young’s performance. This is because there have been many changes in the bullpen in the offseason.

Ko Woo-suk, who has 139 saves in his five-year career, has left for the San Diego Padres to challenge himself in the Major League. Ham Deok-ju, who stayed on the team through the signing of a free agent contract, is expected to be absent until mid-to-late this season due to a fine fracture of the columnar bone in his left elbow.

Lee joined the military to deal with military issues. Three of them, who were in charge of pivotal duties last year, have to leave at the same time to fill in the vacancy. The team planned to use Lee Sang-young to fill in the void, but plans to delay it for a while.

Lee Sang-young joined the team after being discharged from military service in June last year. Yeom tried to call up and utilize Lee Sang-young, who just got discharged, but notified him of his move to the Futures League due to reasons such as poor speed and unstable control of his team. He pitched a total of 11 innings in six games in the first team.

However, he is still an attractive resource. He won nine games in 12 Futures League games last season, and pitched well with an earned run average of 2.24 41, strikeouts and 13 walks over 60 ⅓ innings. At the KBO award ceremony after the season, he was named the winner of the Northern League of the Futures League. Another big advantage is that he can use it as both a starter and relief. He left behind his disappointment over the last season and entered the 2024 season with enthusiasm, but as he was excluded from the opening entry, he will make a promise to continue next season.
