Samsung-Kiwoom starting lineup…trade aftermath
On the morning of the 29th, Kiwoom acquired outfielder Lee Ju-hyung from LG in exchange for pitcher Kim Dong-gyu and a first-round draft pick in the 2024 Rookie Draft, and sent pitcher Choi Won-tae to LG. Choi Won-tae had been announced as the starting pitcher for the Samsung-Kiwoom game the previous day after the 28th game. After the trade was announced, Kiwoom announced the replacement of the starting pitcher with Kim Dong-hyuk. “We have to run it as a bullpen day,” manager Hong Won-ki said before the game.
Lee Ju-hyung, who was traded, started immediately. Kiwoom’s starting lineup was Lee Yong-kyu (designated hitter), Kim Hye-sung (second base), Dawson (center field), Song Sung-moon (third base), Kim Woong-bin (first base), Joo Sung-won (right field), Lee Ju-hyung (left field), Lee Ji-young (catcher), and Kim Tae-jin (second base).
For Samsung, Kim Hyun-joon (center fielder), Kim Sung-yoon (right fielder), Koo Ja-uk (designated hitter), Kang Min-ho (catcher), Pirela (left fielder), Kang Kang-ul (third baseman), Lee Jae-hyun (shortstop), Kim Dong-jin (second baseman), and Ryu Ji-hyuk (first baseman) started.
Coach Park Jin-man said, “Kim Hyun-jun is playing really well and getting a lot of runs, and he’s doing a good job of connecting to Koo Ja-rook so that the center fielders can handle it. Kim Sung-yoon is doing a good job as a licorice right now. The batting lineup has become clutch and organized.”
