The Doosan Bears, who are busy with a long way to go, are starting their fateful six-game series without a foreign batter and captain.
Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop met with reporters ahead of the final match of the season against Hanwha in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 12th and reported the exclusion of Jose Rojas and Heo Gyeong-min.
Rojas, who recently increased his momentum with multiple hits in two consecutive games, was infected with COVID-19 after the game against Samsung in Jamsil on the 10th. Director Lee said, “Unfortunately, Rojas contracted COVID-19. “It’s not serious, but how many days the condition will last depends on the player’s condition,” he said. “I took medicine yesterday and will rest at home again today.” “I think I’ll have to check his condition again tomorrow,” he said regretfully. Captain Heo Gyeong-min has a bruise on his hand and is on standby.
Two key players in the batting lineup are excluded: Su-bin Jeong (center fielder) – Jae-ho Kim (shortstop) – Seok-hwan Yang (designated hitter) – Eui-ji Yang (catcher) – Jae-hwan Kim (left fielder) – Seung-ho Kang (first baseman) – Joon-young Park (third baseman) – Gye-beom Park (2nd baseman) A new starting lineup was formed: baseman) – Cho Su-haeng (right fielder). The starting pitcher is ‘10-win ace’ Kwak Bin.
Doosan is in 6th place, 3 games behind 5th place SSG, and is aiming to board the last postseason train. Meanwhile, the fateful six-game series in which Hanwha-SSG-SSG-KIA-KIA-KIA will meet one after another will begin without Rojas and Heo Gyeong-min. 카지노
Still, there is no need to worry. Coach Lee said, “It’s Doosan in the fall. “There are many strong players in the fall,” he said. “The data is now just a reference.” A long time passed. Pitchers’ fatigue increased, and fielders’ movements also became sluggish. Your body may come back when the weather gets cooler. “Conditions are more important these days than data,” he emphasized.
Meanwhile, Doosan formed a weekly starting rotation starting with Kwak Bin on this day, followed by Park Shin-ji, Choi Seung-yong, Brandon Waddell, Raul Alcantara, and Kwak Bin. Swingman Park Shin-ji is preparing long relief resources for the Jamsil SSG match on the 13th, and Kwak Bin, who is scheduled to participate in the Hangzhou Asian Games, plans to reschedule after pitching twice a week. Manager Lee said, “If the number of pitches increases, four days of rest for two consecutive weeks is unreasonable.”
