LG 42SV Salvation King’s return is imminent, the Seoul Rival will be skipped

Finally, the return of the King of Salvation is imminent.

Woo-seok Ko (25), LG’s finishing pitcher who became the league’s salvation king with 42 saves last year, is expected to register for the first team entry in time for the match against NC at Jamsil Stadium on the 18th at the earliest.

On the 13th, LG coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop talked about the timing of Ko Woo-suk’s return ahead of the Lotte match.

Director Yeom Kyung-yeop, who said, “I’m planning on next Tuesday (18th) for now,” said, “I have to come from next week. I’ll come back if I can.”

Currently, Ko Woo-seok is undergoing actual inspection in the Futures League. Go Woo-suk, who was selected for the World Baseball Classic (WBC) team last March and had the Taegeuk mark engraved on his chest, complained of a sore throat before even playing the first round of the WBC, and eventually had to return home without pitching in a single match. Ko Woo-seok, who returned to his team, LG, was diagnosed with shoulder inflammation through a re-examination, and started a strong start to his return through the Futures League match against KT on the 11th. The pitching at the time was 1 inning, 1 hit, 1 walk, 1 run.

Ko Woo-suk, who was originally scheduled to pitch in the Futures League match against KT held in Iksan on the 13th, was canceled due to fine dust, so his pitching schedule was postponed to Hampyeong KIA on the 14th. As a result, Go Woo-seok’s return to the first team is expected to be slightly delayed. According to the original schedule, it seemed possible to return on one day during the three-game series against Doosan on the 14th and 16th, but it was decided to skip the first-team registration for the weekend three-game series.스포츠토토

It is a matchup that is attracting attention as it is the first matchup of the season against Seoul rival Doosan, but coach Yeom Kyung-yeop does not intend to advance the return schedule of Go Woo-seok. “It was delayed anyway, and it’s not like we only play 3 games against Doosan,” said coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop.

LG is realizing how the absence of the best finisher in the league affects the team in the absence of Ko Woo-seok. At least, LG almost suffered a painful come-from-behind defeat in the match against Sajik Lotte on the 12th. In the bottom of the 8th inning, provisional closer Lee Jung-yong was put in for relief with one out, but Lee Jung-yong hit a come-from-behind 3-run home run by Ko Seung-min and recorded his third blown save of the season. LG won a come-from-behind victory 12-8 thanks to Kim Hyun-soo’s come-from-behind two-run gun in the beginning of the 9th inning, but the game had to be finished without shaking off the anxiety about the back door.
