LG bullpen pitcher Ham Deok-joo’s return to the first team has been delayed. More time is needed to recover. 

Coach Yeom Kyung-yeop reported on the current status of Ham Deok-ju, who was sent down to the second team to recover from fatigue and prevent injury ahead of the game against KT in Suwon on the 5th.

Ham Deok-ju was excluded from the first team entry on August 29th. It was not because there was a specific injury, but as a preventive measure. At the time, Coach Yeom explained, “It’s not because of the injury. Maybe it’s because he threw a lot of innings, but there’s a feeling that his recovery is slow. He hasn’t been feeling well recently, so I asked him to rest as a precaution.” He said he would be called up after the 10-day re-registration period.

However, Coach Yeom said of Ham Deok-ju that day, “He played catch after resting for 5 days, but he said his elbow is still a little uncomfortable. He plans to return safer and with more rest time.” 

He continued, “It won’t help if you come in with a low level of recovery. If you get hurt, it could interfere with the postseason. If you get greedy, you could end up with even bigger losses. This is a season where you haven’t pitched much for a while and then pitched a lot. You have to go safely. “I’m going to throw it (once) at Futures,” he explained. 

Ham Deok-ju has pitched in 57 games this season, recording 4 wins, 4 saves, 16 holds, and an ERA of 1.62. Ranks 1st in holds in the team. He pitched 55⅔ innings. He is playing a lot of innings compared to the last two years. 

Ham Deok-ju, who was traded from Doosan to LG in 2021, was limited to 16 games and 21 innings due to an elbow injury in the 2021 season, and only 12.2 innings in 13 games in the 2022 season due to a minor injury. The number of innings pitched this year is the most since 67 innings in 2018. After completing the 2021 season, he underwent surgery to remove bone fragments from his elbow and succeeded in making a comeback this season. 

I also talked about the preparation process with Lee Min-ho and Lee Sang-young, who are in the second group.

Lee Min-ho appeared as a starting pitcher in the Futures League game against Goyang Heroes held at LG Champions Park in Icheon on the 5th, and pitched 77 pitches over 6 innings, allowing 3 hits, no walks, 7 strikeouts, and no runs. He has won his last three games in a row. He pitched 5⅔ innings, allowing one run, six scoreless innings, and six scoreless innings. 카지노사이트

Coach Yeom said, “First of all, Son Ju-young is preparing to be selected for the double header on the 9th. It was reported that Son Ju-young was the best in the second group, so we decided.” He added, “If the next opportunity arises, Lee Min-ho can be recommended. Lee Min-ho’s arrest was recently reported. “He said.” 

Left-hander Lee Sang-young, who was discharged from the Sangmu position and was given a chance to be the 5th starter but failed, is also participating in second-team games again after correcting his pitching form. On this day, he took the mound as the second pitcher following Lee Min-ho in the game against Goyang, pitching 32 pitches in 3 innings, allowing 1 hit, 2 strikeouts, and no runs. 

Coach Yeom said, “Lee Sang-young will continue to increase the number of pitches in second-team games. His velocity has reached 145 km/h. A left-handed pitcher is needed in the postseason. There must be one left-handed pitcher who throws a fast ball. Prepare as a starter and start the season. “I will throw it as a starter at the last minute. After watching the pitch, I can use it as a starter, long reel, or bullpen,” he explained.
