It is unclear whether SSG Landers Kirk McCarty will pitch on Sunday. Park Jong-hoon is scheduled to be called up for ’emergency situations’.

McCarty started in the game against the Hanwha Eagles in Daejeon on the 5th and came down with 7 hits (1 home run), 4 walks, 5 strikeouts, and 6 runs in 3 innings. It was definitely a different balance than usual. His ball control wasn’t as good as he wanted, and with many balls in the middle, he allowed Hanwha batters to make consecutive long hits. Although the team achieved a comeback victory in the second half, McCarty left after giving his most disappointing pitch since the opening game of the season.

But there was a hidden reason. He developed blisters on the fingers of his left hand, where he throws the ball. McCarty, who suffered from blisters while pitching, tried to somehow continue pitching, but he came down with a disappointing result. And he confessed his discomfort after coming off the mound.

Blisters are a common symptom among pitchers and will go away after a few days. However, McCarty was scheduled to start against Suwon KT Wiz on the 10th, this Sunday.

He said that the player himself would pitch as scheduled if he recovered as quickly as possible. Of course, be cautious. He’s not healed, but if you throw it hastily, you’re going to get in trouble. Coach Kim Won-hyung left open the possibility, saying, “I looked at McCarty’s condition while playing catch today (7th). I think he will wake up tomorrow and look at the condition of his fingers before making a final decision on whether he will pitch on Sunday.”온라인바카라

If McCarty’s appearance is delayed, Park Jong-hoon is scheduled to be called up from the second team. Park Jong-hoon, who is going through a period of readjustment in the second team, was scheduled to pitch next week when SSG’s first double header of the season is held. However, the rotation may be adjusted due to McCarty’s blister, so Park Jong-hoon’s appearance has been prepared in advance by the second-team coaching staff.
