The selection decision was made the next day after the rain cancellation against KIA in Gwangju on the 11th.토스카지노
Unlike the Kia Tigers, who had to think for a while about Yoon Young-chul and Thomas Pannoni, the Samsung Lions didn’t have to. It was only natural to delay the selection of homegrown ace Won Tae-in by a day.
After a honeyed 10-day break from 11-20 November, Won has recorded three consecutive quality starts since his return. Two of them were quality starts of seven innings or more. Only three earned runs in 21 innings in three games.
He hasn’t had much fun against the KIA this season with one loss and a 4.50 ERA in two games, but his current form is a different story. Samsung manager Park Jin-man said, “He’s been looking good lately. He’s been good since he came back from the disabled list. I think there was a physical burden on him without realising it.”
The best-case scenario is for Won to go at least seven innings again.
In the unlikely event of a Won Tae-in start, the team will go all out to win the game. Hwang Dong-jae, who was originally scheduled to start on the 12th, will also be in the bullpen. Usually, Park sends him to the Futures League to rotate once the first-team starting spot is filled. “He’s a player who needs to be developed as a main starter for Samsung,” he said.
But this time was an exception. The plan is to use him in the bullpen for the final two games of the first half.
As if that weren’t enough, rain is forecast for Champions Field on the 13th. It’s unclear if the game will be played.
In fact, the 12th could be the final game of the first half. Samsung are guaranteed to finish bottom of the table. The difference in hope between finishing with a win and finishing with a loss is huge.
After all, last weekend marked their second straight win in almost a month. They need to keep the spark of rebounding alive. A bullpen battle is inevitable.
