Professional baseball, which has reached the end of the season, begins full-fledged digestion of the remaining game schedule starting in September. The delayed schedule due to the cancellation of the rain will be digested through a double header.

Under this schedule, the expanded entry will be implemented from the 1st of the following month. It is hoped that it will be possible to prevent injuries while using players more widely by operating an entry increased by 5 from the previous 28.

The five expanded entries get as much attention as they can have a big impact on each team’s competition for rankings at the end of the season.

LG, Seo Kun-chang returns… Shall we help the stagnant batting line?
Yeom Gyeong-yeop, LG coach, said, “We plan to fill Seo Geon-chang, Kim Joo-seong, and one catcher with Kim Ki-yeon, followed by Oh Seok-joo and Lee Woo-chan.”

Reinforce players from all positions. The biggest concern right now is the blow. Coach Yeom Kyung-yeop said, “The batting line is stagnant,” and expected a breakthrough. Expectations are focused on the role of Seo Geon-chang, who won 200 hits in a single season and even won the batting king. Although he had an encounter with his old mentor, Seo Geon-chang disappeared from the first team after mid-May after experiencing extreme batting difficulties this season. His batting average was 0.207. It is only 0.252 in the Futures League, but it showed signs of rebounding to 0.294 in the last 10 games.

Kim Joo-seong is also a promising infielder. He joined in 2016 and debuted in the first team the following year, but his professional career, including this season, is only 9 games and 11 at-bats. In the Futures League, he batted .285 with 2 homers, 27 RBIs and 15 stolen bases.

The catchers, guarded by two veterans Park Dong-won and Heo Do-hwan, gain strength with the joining of Kim Ki-yeon. His batting average this season is 0.120, which is disappointing, but it is expected to be useful as a backup catcher at the end of the season.

From the pitching staff, right-handed pitcher Oh Seok-joo is called up. This season, he gave up 2 runs in 6 innings in 5 games and showed potential. Lee Woo-chan, who was canceled on the 23rd, will return on the 2nd after completing 10 days. Recording 3.42 ERA with 1 win, 2 losses and 3 holds this season, he is expected to add great strength to the mound from the bullpen.

Doosan, starting pitcher Park Shin-ji and bullpen Lee Hyeong-beom reinforcing in tough schedule스포츠토토
Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop announced his intention to bring in Lee Hyung-beom and Kim Jeong-woo as pitchers, Lee Yu-chan and Park Ji-hoon as infielders, and Park Shin-ji, who was announced to be selected for the Busan Sajik Lotte Giants match on the 3rd of next month.

Hyung-beom Lee was the pitcher who was in charge of finishing the team when Doosan won the championship in 2019. Since then, ups and downs have been going on, and this season, it was disappointing with 1 win and 1 hold, ERA of 6.33 in 22 games, but I called up in the hopes of helping the team with an expanded entry. In the Futures League, he had a good fight with 1.93 ERA with 2 wins, 1 loss, 2 saves and 1 hold in 14 games.

Kim Jeong-woo also left a disappointment with an ERA of 8.53 without a win or loss in six games this season, but in the Futures, he showed an extremely strong appearance with 3 wins, 1 loss, 7 saves, and an ERA of 1.47, so he got another chance.

Prior to this season, Park Shin-ji, who was considered one of the top 5 starting candidates, spent most of her time in the second team as she was out of competition with Kim Dong-ju and Choi Seung-yong. As the rest of the game schedule progressed, he needed more starting pitchers due to double headers, etc., and he was given a chance as a starter again.

Lee Yu-chan steadily gained opportunities until the middle of the season, but was canceled on the 10th due to frequent mistakes. He was called up again because he is a power that can add enough strength in terms of defense and hitting. Park Ji-hoon fills the remaining spot. After joining the team in 2020 and completing the 2021 season, he completed his military service, and showed an excellent batting average of 0.377 in the Futures League, giving him a chance in the second team this season.
