Returning Pil Seung-jo Choi Jun-yong, strong Lotte Sutton coach “It is possible to start right away” 

“It is possible to start immediately.”

Choi Jun-yong (22), the key bullpen agent of the Giant Corps, is back. Choi Jun-yong, who has played a clear role as Lotte’s Pilseung-joo, was excluded from the opening entry after showing a shaky appearance in this year’s demonstration game. And joining the first team 3 weeks after opening. The command tower expressed anticipation, saying that he could start the mound right away. Can Lotte’s bullpen become stronger with Choi Jun-yong’s addition?

Lotte coach Larry Sutton met ahead of the season’s first ‘Nakdong River Derby’ against NC in the 2023 KBO League held at Changwon NC Park on the 21st and explained Choi Jun-yong’s first-team registration.

Regarding Choi Jun-yong’s condition, manager Sutton said, “It’s very good. The expression on his face before today’s game was also very bright,” he said. “I heard that the second group worked hard. And I heard that he worked harder than anyone else to recover his form that he showed last year.”메이저사이트

It means you are in good shape. He hinted at the possibility of starting the game that day. Sutton said, “There is a possibility that he will start today. As you know, (Choi Jun-yong) came up after fighting in the 2nd Army, and took a day off yesterday,” he stressed, “there is a high possibility of starting today.”

Choi Jun-yong, who has established himself as Lotte’s key bullpen, recorded an average ERA of 4.06 with 3 wins, 4 losses, 14 saves and 6 holds last year. In particular, he firmly guarded Lotte’s back door by filling the gap left by finisher Kim Won-joong’s injury at the beginning of the season. In the 2021 season, the second year of his professional debut, he recorded 20 holds and even reached second place in the Rookie of the Year vote. With the joining of Choi Jun-yong, Lotte is able to operate a more flexible bullpen.

On this day, Lotte also called Choi Lee-jun to the first team. Coach Sutton said, “Choi Yi-joon’s condition is similar to Choi Jun-yong. He is very good,” he said. “I heard that Choi Lee-joon recovered his speed and that he had a good angle of change and control. So he signed up for the first team,” he explained.

On the other hand, Lotte dropped Kim Chang-hoon and high school graduate Lee Tae-yeon from the list as Choi Jun-yong and Choi Lee-jun registered for the first team.
