The Doosan Bears enter the season without a foreigner for the second year in a row.
‘Lee Seung-yeop’ started the spring camp while emphasizing that there should be no injuries. Eventually, a major accident occurred. Doosan’s new foreign pitcher, Dylan Pyle, was hit in the head by a batted ball during live pitching.
The Doosan team returned home on the 7th, but Dylan was able to come back only on the 12th after resting. As a result of a detailed examination in Korea, I was told that ‘four weeks of rest’ was necessary. In the end, the start of the opening series failed.
Following last year’s “MVP” Ariel Miranda, who was excluded from the opening entry due to shoulder pain, for the second year in a row, one outsider is missing.
With Dylan absent, Doosan had to worry about filling a starting position for the time being.
Doosan’s starting plan this season was to fill the four spots with Raul Alcantara and Dylan, Choi Won-jun and Kwak Bin. Choi Seung-yong, Park Shin-ji and Kim Dong-ju were in mind for the remaining seats.
Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop’s ideal 5th starting pitcher was the settlement of left-handed pitcher Choi Seung-yong. When Doosan picked Choi Seung-yong in the 2021 rookie draft, they had it in mind as a future starter. tall and long arms. It was evaluated that his mindset on the mound was ideal for a starter.
Choi Seung-yong, who recorded an average ERA of 5.30 with 3 wins, 7 losses and 5 holds in 48 games last year while going back and forth between start and relief, has definitely been fixed as a starting pitcher this season. Choi Seung-yong turned on the green light for the 5th starter by showing his potential as a starting pitcher.
Park Shin-ji challenged the spot created by Dylan’s injury. I shook off my disappointment last year and entered the selection competition in earnest. Kwak Bin, Jeong Cheol-won, Kim Min-gyu, and Park Shin-ji, born in 1999, were nominated in the first round (10th overall) at the time.
He was given an opportunity in the middle, but he could not come out clearly, and he was evaluated as having improved further in last year’s spring camp after returning from military service. He boldly put the ball in the second half of 140 km, giving hope that he would be able to fill the starting spot.
There was a lot of expectation, but the result was full of disappointment. Whenever there was a gap in the starting lineup, he took an opportunity and started both the starting line and the bullpen. He finished the season with 1 win, 6 losses and an average ERA of 6.71 in 29 games, overlapping with pitch hunting.
A new season greeted with great pride. Park Shin-ji, who was not in good condition even at the beginning of spring camp, started to show the expected appearance from the last minute.
The first tape of his exhibition game was also cut happily. He started against the Gwangju KIA on the 18th and gave up 1 run with 4 hits and 2 walks in 4 innings.토토사이트
At the current pace, Park Shin-ji is expected to be another alternative to fill Dylan’s void. His first steps were taken successfully.
