Last year’s 30-hold set-up man, ankle fracture surgery shock… No. 1 in the hold Who will stop the Asian Games

The replacement for the hold number one turned out to have undergone surgery.

KT Wiz coach Lee Kang-cheol revealed that bullpen pitcher Kim Min-soo had undergone surgery. Prior to the away match against the Doosan Bears at Jamsil Stadium on the 16th, coach Lee said, “Kim Min-soo recently broke his ankle and underwent surgery. He will not be able to play this season.메이저사이트

Kim Min-soo appeared in 76 games last year and recorded 5 wins, 4 losses, 3 saves and 30 holds, and an average ERA of 1.90, playing a big role as a setup man and playing a big role in helping the team rise to 4th place.

However, he only came up to the first team on May 24 due to an injury this season, and his performance was not good. He had 14 appearances, 1 loss and 3 holds with an ERA of 6.92. In the end, on July 24, he decided to go down to the 2nd Army and improve his pitch.

Coach Lee had the idea of ​​appointing Kim Min-soo as a setup man in place of Park Young-hyun if Park Young-hyun, who is currently ranked number one in the hold, participates in the Asian Games.

But the bad news came. Kim Min-soo suffered a fracture in his left ankle (outer peach bone) during training in Iksan on the 10th. The KT team said, “Kim Min-soo successfully completed surgery at an orthopedic clinic in Seoul on the 14th and it will take more than 3 months to return.”

Park Si-young, another setup man candidate, also promised next year. Park Si-young, who played a major role in winning the championship in 2021, received surgery for an elbow injury last year and prepared for a comeback while rehabilitating this season, but felt elbow pain again, making it difficult to return this season.

Currently, Park Young-hyun occupies an important position at KT. He appeared in 52 games, going 3-3 with 2 saves and 23 holds, with an earned run average of 2.91. Although he is in his second year of high school, he is perfectly performing the role of a setup man who firmly blocks in front of finisher Kim Jae-yoon. In July, he showed a sluggish appearance with a slight drop in physical strength, but in August, he pitched perfectly with an average zero ERA, giving 1 win, 1 save and 5 holds in 7 games.

The current KT mound is leading to starters, Park Young-hyun, and Kim Jae-yoon, creating victory.

KT has to find a replacement after Park Young-hyun went to the Asian Games. Son Dong-hyun is showing a good figure, but director Lee is worried. Coach Lee worried about the Asian Games period with a bone-chilling joke, “Now I have to hope that the starting pitchers will stop it until the 8th inning.”
