Yang Eui-ji returned to Doosan Bears in crisis.
Doosan registered catcher Yang Eui-ji and outfielder Kim Tae-geun in the first-team entry ahead of an away game against Kiwoom Heroes at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 22nd, and canceled infielder Ahn Jae-seok.
Yang Eui-ji, who complained of discomfort in his side during training on the 5th, confirmed damage to his left flank muscle as a result of a detailed examination on the 7th. Yang Eui-ji, who was on the injured list on the 8th, returned to the first team entry in two weeks.안전놀이터
Doosan keenly felt his absence during the period when Yang Eui-ji was missing. Doosan struggled with 3 wins and 7 losses in 10 games as Yang Eui-ji, who showed the league’s best offense with a batting average of 0.323, 9 homers, 44 RBIs and an OPS of 0.906 in 87 games despite carrying a heavy burden in defense as the main catcher, was eliminated.
Doosan, which once fell to 7th place, recovered to 5th place, but has yet to recover its 50% win rate (50 wins, 51 losses, 1 draw, 0.495 win rate). The gap with the 6th place KIA Tigers (48-49 losses, 2 draws, win rate 0.495) has disappeared, and the gap with the 7th place Lotte Giants (50-54 losses, odds rate 0.481) is only 1.5 games away.
Yang Eui-ji returned, but Doosan maintained a three-man catcher system, leaving catchers Jang Seung-hyun and Park Yoo-yeon in the first team entry. On this day (22nd), Jang Seung-hyun wears the starting catcher mask, Kim Jae-hwan plays as the designated hitter, and Yang Eui-ji starts the game from the bench.
