The 1st and 2nd place match between SSG Landers and LG Twins, which was scheduled to take place on the 22nd, was canceled due to sudden heavy rain. On the 23rd, the starting matchup announced on the last day of the three-game series has changed.
SSG will also sortie on the 23rd as Roennis Elias announced that day. On the other hand, LG switched to Lee Jung-yong instead of Adam Plutko. Lee Jung-yong was scheduled to start on the 23rd.
The game was delayed due to heavy rain just before the start. Plutko, who had to pitch in the first inning, had already warmed up, making it difficult to pitch again the next day. It seems that he decided not to overdo it because he could not perform well and get injured at the worst moment. For LG, Plutco is the hope of the starting team. He pitched in 17 games in the first half, going 11-1 with an earned run average of 2.21. In 17 games in which Plutko started, LG recorded 14 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss, with a win rate of 90%. Indeed, the formula ‘Plutko = Victory’ was created.
Casey Kelly, who played the role of an ace for the past four years, was sluggish in the first half with an average ERA of 4.44 with 6 wins and 5 losses.
This is Lee Jeong-yong’s fourth starting appearance. As LG’s 4th and 5th starters continued to show sluggishness, LG coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop took out the starting card as a desperate measure. Lee Jeong-yong, who has been active as a bullpen pitcher since joining the team, plans to join Sangmu next year, but he plans to change from Sangmu to a starting pitcher, so he decided to take starting classes in advance. Lee Jeong-yong, who recorded 3 hits and 1 run in 2 innings against Lotte on June 25, posted 3 hits and no runs in 3 innings against KIA on the 2nd. However, the match against Lotte on the 9th was sluggish with 7 hits and 6 runs (5 earned) in 3 innings. He also threw only 58 pitches, and did not reach his scheduled 70 pitches.
In order to settle down as a starting pitcher, he is reorganizing the pitch design by using a forkball instead of a changeup and learning a new curve.메이저사이트
He pitched in practice games during the All-Star break and found potential as a starting pitcher. Lee Jung-yong took the mound as a starter in a practice game against Doosan on the 17th and recorded 4 hits, 1 walk, 6 strikeouts and no runs in 5 innings. He threw 71 pitches in 5 innings. His highest speed was 145 km, showing a stable appearance.
In particular, he said that the curve he received from Lim Chan-gyu got better. Lim Chan-gyu said, “I received a curve while playing catch with Lee Jeong-yong on a break, but the rotation rate was not right. The velocity was fast, so I did not fall from the position where I was supposed to fall and the angle was small.”
He threw 70 in the practice game, so he can throw 805 to 90 before SSG on the 23rd. One,
