LG Twins manager Yeom Kyeong-yeop selected starting pitcher Son Ju-young and closing pitcher Yoo Young-chan as the team’s best players in the first half of the 2024 professional baseball season.

Manager Yeom Kyung-yeop said, “The best players in the first half are Son Joo-young and Yoo Young-chan,” ahead of the away game against the Kiwoom Heroes at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 2nd. “Son Joo-young effectively took over the starting spot in June, a crucial month, and prevented mound overload, while Yoo Young-chan had a huge impact on the team atmosphere by preventing a close game.

He continued, “Thanks to the two players, we were able to prevent the worst situation,” and added, “First of all, I’d like to give our team a ‘good’ score among the best in the first half.”

Defending champion LG suffered a setback in May when left-handed starting pitcher Kim Yun-sik was sidelined with an elbow injury and Choi Won-tae with a gluteus medius injury. 메이저사이트

Even native ace Chan-gyu Lim was left out of the starting rotation due to back pain.

Meanwhile, Son Ju-young, the fifth starter, steadily maintained his position.

If Son Ju-young was in charge of the front door, Yoo Young-chan blocked the back door.

Yoo Young-chan, who was selected as the closing pitcher for this season, appeared in 36 games this season, recording 5 wins, 3 losses, 17 saves, and an ERA of 1.89, which was better than expected.

With key bullpen pitchers struggling due to injuries and poor performance, Yoo Young-chan’s great pitching was a great help to LG.

Manager Yeom Kyung-yeop mentioned the two pitchers’ names and expressed his gratitude ahead of the All-Star break.

Coach Yeom also said that managing injured players will be a key point in the fight for rankings in the second half.

Coach Yeom said, “Many teams had a difficult first half of the season due to injuries, and as a result, the league has become more level-headed,” and “the final rankings will also be greatly affected by injuries.”

First of all, LG is smoothly gathering momentum for the second half ranking battle as injured players return one by one.

Manager Yeom said, “Won-Tae Choi will return as scheduled as the fourth starting pitcher in the second half.”

Outfielder Moon Seong-ju, who had been out with a thigh muscle injury, returned to the first-team roster today.

Manager Yeom said, “Moon Seong-ju will be waiting as a pinch hitter today and tomorrow, and he can appear as a designated hitter in the game on the 4th.” 토토사이트
