Lee Dae-soo, head coach of the Futures, said, “Considering today’s 11 o’clock game and adaptation to the mound due to rain, it seems that the first team will have more speed and more fastball power in the future.” “First of all, the overall ball control was good, and the pitching rhythm and balance It was also good. In particular, the changeup was easy to steal timing against right-handed hitters, and the curve was also powerful.”

As long as Elias has no problems with his physical condition, he will start preparing for the mound next week. Director Kim Won-hyung said, “I think it will be decided naturally. It was decided naturally as the game was canceled yesterday (19th). Next Wednesday is empty, but we will play on Wednesday.” 

Elias’ debut game was set for the match against the LG Twins at SSG Landers Field on the 24th.

In the case of Song Young-jin, who was originally included in the starting rotation, he will now return to the bullpen. Manager Kim Won-hyeong said, “Song Young-jin waits in the bullpen for three consecutive weekends.” /
