LG coach Yeom Kyung-yeop tried to find the positive side, saying that he had more time to pay attention to young players in the spring camp even after sending the most 6 players from 10 teams to the WBC national team.
Director Yeom Gyeong-yeop was also surprised by the news that came on the 6th. Finishing pitcher Ko Woo-seok was suddenly replaced due to back pain during a practice game against Orix held in Osaka on the 6th. After the match, Ko Woo-seok was worried about his condition, saying, “I didn’t feel very good.” On the 7th, I had a hospital check-up.
Fortunately, on the 7th, I went to the hospital in a much better condition. The examination results showed no problems other than simple muscle pain.
A KBO official announced on the 7th, “Ko Woo-seok was examined at a World Baseball Classic (WBC) designated hospital and was found to have no abnormalities. He is recovering quickly from simple muscle pain in the muscles around his shoulder.” Director Yeom Kyung-yeop also heard the news and looked for a color.
Director Yeom Gyeong-yeop, who went to Jamsil Stadium for LG training on the 8th, laughed, saying, “I sent a message and they said it was okay. They said it wasn’t enough to worry about.” He also said, “I think my muscles have come up a little because I’m not fully adjusted to the jet lag and I’m throwing hard in a bad condition. In Tucson, I was in good shape.” 스포츠토토
Still, we continue to monitor the condition of the rest of the players, especially the pitchers. Coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop said, “(Kim) Yun-sik asked to adjust the pace. Since the pace was not up, he asked for the game to be released a little later.” Kim Yun-sik came out to Hanshin on the 7th and fought hard with 2 hits and 1 strikeout in 1⅓ innings. The number of pitches was 24.
With Kim Yun-sik missing, the door to the 5th starting test in the demonstration game has widened even more. Director Yeom Kyung-yeop said, “Three people, including Kang Hyo-jong, Park Myeong-geun, and Kim Yoo-young, are also starting candidates. Casey Kelly and Adam Plutko are thrown once a week according to the opening date, and the rest of the starting candidates go to other games. Regardless of the situation, reliever pitchers who need to check their condition take turns to mound.
