The return of Doosan Bears Young Gun Kim Dong-ju (21) to the mound for the first team has been delayed.
Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop said before the Gocheok Kiwoom Heroes match on the 23rd, “Kim Dong-ju is suffering from back pain.
Kim Dong-ju started 10 games this season and recorded 2 wins and 4 losses with an ERA of 3.23. Even though it was his first season as a starter, he showed competitiveness and was a great help to the Doosan starting lineup, where injuries continued one after another.
However, from mid-May, he showed a lack of strength, and in June, he failed to fill 5 innings in 2 consecutive games as a starter and was knocked out early.
In the end, coach Lee decided to give Kim Dong-ju a break and removed him from the first-team entry on the 10th. Originally, Kim Dong-ju was scheduled to return to the first team on the 22nd, but due to unexpected back pain, he could not come up on the scheduled date. Doosan sent Choi Seung-yong as a starter to the game on the 22nd.스포츠토토
Director Lee said, “I expect to return in two weeks. However, I don’t know what will happen to the injury,” and expressed his wish, “I hope to return in two weeks without any problems.”
On the other hand, Doosan, which fell to 6th place after losing 4 times in a row, urgently needs to escape from losing streak. On this day, head coach Lee Seung-yeop tried to change the starting lineup by deploying Heo Gyeong-min, who has good operational skills, as the number 2 player, and placing José Rojas, who was called up to the first team, as the number 7 batting order.
Coach Lee said, “We won 2 wins and 7 losses in 9 games against top-ranked teams. We couldn’t overcome the hurdle. The atmosphere seemed to be down because we couldn’t win all of the matches where the ace (Raul) Alcantara appeared.” I think. The gap with the 4th and 5th teams is not too big yet. The 1st to 3rd starters are all out in the weekend 3rd consecutive game, so I hope this will be an opportunity for a rebound,” he sang hopefully.
