LG’s Big Crisis → Eventually, a new version will be created, the head coach said, “We will reset the whole thing.”

The LG Twins, which had been on the rise to the top of the season, fell into a swamp of four consecutive losses. In fact, with the native starters devastated, LG manager Yeom Kyung-yeop expressed his intention to reset the overall setting.퀸알바

LG lost 3-6 against Samsung in an away game of the 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu on the 13th.

After losing 2-11 at the KT game on Tuesday, LG lost to Samsung for the fourth consecutive game, losing all three games against Samsung. LG maintained its second place with 38 wins, 29 losses and two draws. The gap with Kia, which ranks first, is 0.5 games. On the other hand, the gap with SSG, which ranks fifth, has narrowed to 3.5 games. The gap between Samsung, which ranks third with a win rate of 0.561, and Doosan, which ranks fourth with a win rate of 0.59 is only 0.5 games.

LG is currently struggling to form a mound. In particular, it is painful that the two main native starters left. First of all, Im Chan-kyu was removed from the first division entry on the 3rd. He was originally scheduled to start against Kiwoom on June 4, but felt discomfort in his back during pitching training on the 2nd. As a result of the hospital examination, he was diagnosed with back muscle pain. First of all, Im Chan-kyu is in a difficult condition to take the mound this week. Ahead of the match against Samsung in Daegu on the 13th, Yeom said, “I expect Lim to return around the weekend.”

Choi’s start was then abruptly canceled, about four hours before the match against Samsung in Daegu on Tuesday. He felt discomfort in his side. Choi underwent a thorough examination at Sejong Sports Orthopedic Surgery Hospital, the next day. As a result, he was diagnosed with a minor injury to his right optical back muscle. “He will undergo a re-examination in two weeks,” an LG source said. With two native starters leaving at once, LG has only five native starters left.

The bigger problem is that there is no alternative starter to be trusted with. In fact, it is no exaggeration to say that the starting lineup has been devastated. Last week, LG had Lee Deum and Lee Woo-chan as substitutes in place of Lim Chan-kyu. However, Lee Deum was hit hard by 11 hits and seven runs (seven earned runs) in four innings in the game against Kiwoom on Saturday. Lee was then given two hits, three walks and four runs (four earned) during the ⅓ innings at the game against KT on Tuesday, before being substituted early on. At a game against Samsung in Daegu on Tuesday, Kim Yu-young was given the opportunity, but failed to meet expectations by allowing two hits, four strikeouts and two runs (not earned) in two ⅓ innings.

LG will now return to Jamsil and play three consecutive weekend games against the Lotte Giants. The starting pitcher for the match against Lotte on Friday is expected to be Detrick N.S. The problem lies in the 15th and the 16th, only when a substitute player is selected. Originally, Yeom planned to use Kim Yu-young as the starting pitcher for the 15th. However, the plan is expected to change. “I think we should think about having Yoo-young as the starting pitcher on Saturday (Saturday 15th). I think we need to set the overall setting up again,” Yeom said.

Currently, LG has a total of 14 pitchers. Starting with Kelly, N.S., and Son Joo-young, Yoo Young-chan, Kim Jin-sung, Kim Dae-hyun, Lee Ji-gang, Lee Woo-chan, Kim Yoo-young, Baek Seung-hyun, Woo Kang-hoon, Kim Jin-soo, Kim Young-joon, and Jung Ji-heon are on the list.

When asked about Kim Jin-su, Yeom said, “I have to keep sending him out as if I played on the 12th, and continue to test him. If I don’t test him, I won’t be able to create any players.” “In fact, I should have sent (Kim) Dae-hyun out on the 12th, but he said his elbow was bad on the 11th. That’s why he was given a break until the 12th. Dae-hyun will be able to play from the 13th.”

“Now, if we see any possibility, we need to make a card by giving them a chance to play. That way, they can endure the second half of the year. I think we need to continue testing and move forward,” Yeom said.

In fact, there are no more resources to call up in the second team. The team has to deal with the problem within the current entry. Yeom said, “(Kim) Jin-su is also in the first team, and (Kim) Young-jun is also in the second team. Since two starting players from the second team have come up, there are no more players from the second team. Among the players here, I think I need to run the team and see what’s going on. I will run the team according to the situation through consultations with the staff.”

Both Kim and Kim Jin-soo received regular starting classes at the Futures League. Kim made eight starts in the Futures League, winning two games and losing three with a 6.18 ERA. Kim Jin-soo started seven games and recorded two wins and two losses with a 3.89 ERA. Who will be given the opportunity to start as a substitute? Also, will he be able to meet expectations of the team’s head coach, coaching staff and LG fans.
