The long-awaited reserve left-handed pitcher

The Samsung Lions opened the season this year without being able to solve the problem of starting five.

A lot of pitchers challenged me, but none of them took a chance.

Still, Samsung had a corner to trust.

This was because there was a left-handed pitcher, Choi Chae-heung

who served in the military in Sangmu.

Choi Chae-heung

a graduate of Daegu Sangwongo-Hanyang University

joined Samsung in 5 as a first-round pick.온라인카지노

Since then

he has alternated between the starting and bullpen positions

and in 2018 he joined the Senate.

He played primarily as a starting pitcher in Sangmu and showed his future with seven wins and a 1.2022 ERA in 10/55 innings in 7 games.

This year, he has faltered a bit, going 1-79 with a 5.21 ERA in 1/1 innings in five games

but there were expectations that he would take over as Samsung’s fifth starter.

In his return game against the LG Twins on June 6, he seemed to live up to expectations.

Chae-Heung Choi pitched 13 5/3 innings

allowing three hits

two walks

and two strikeouts.


they were unable to carry on the momentum.

Since then

he has not been able to maintain his performance

and in eight games this season

he has lost three and has a sluggish 2.2 ERA.

In the end

Choi Chae-heung was notified of the second team after finishing the game against Doosan on the 8th

(3 innings, 7 hits, 27 home run, 8 strikeouts, 5 runs).

Choi Chae-heung’s sluggishness is a pity.

It is a judgment that he has not yet fully demonstrated his skills.

Head coach Park Jin-man

who met with reporters ahead of the away game against SSG Landers at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 8th diagnosed,

“I think Choi Chae-heung’s ball still has less power.”

“In order for the changeup to be more powerful

the fastball has to be backed up to some extent.

In this way, the sphere of change becomes more alive.

Now that he doesn’t have power on the ball, he seems to be more familiar with the changeup in the eyes of the opposing batsman.

As a result, it seems that he cannot enter the head-to-head match. When the ball is strengthened, the change-up will work better,”

he said, urging Choi Chae-heung to return to the first team with a different look.

Samsung has been struggling to make a solid starting five this year.

Park said Dokdo “The starting pitchers are stable, but the starting five is not complete.

The bullpen is stabilizing a little bit, so if we put the last button on the starting pitching staff

we’ll be able to get even more upward trajectory than we are now.”
