LG Twins had a strong performance. Choi Won-tae (26), a right-handed starting pitcher who had been acquired through a trade to win the championship, was eventually expunged from the first team entry list.
The Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) announced on the 11th that a total of nine players were expunged from the first team entry. The ‘big name’ is Choi Won-tae. He played for his home team, Kiwoom Heroes, this season and was traded to LG last July. He had 8 wins, 6 losses and an average ERA of 4.47 this season.
Until his transfer, Choi Won-tae was a high-level starting pitcher with 6 wins, 4 losses, and an ERA of 3.25. He was the second starter for his team Kiwoom, following Ahn Woo-jin, and his performance could be considered the first starter in the league as a whole. LG, which wanted to solidify first place in the regular season, targeted him, and gave outfielder Lee Joo-hyung, pitcher Kim Dong-gyu, and the first round pick in the rookie draft to be held on the 14th to Kiwoom to receive him.온라인바카라
However, after the transfer, Choi Won-tae failed to show the performance he expected to win. In the first game after being recruited, on July 30th against the Jamsil Doosan Bears, he met the team’s expectations by pitching 6 innings, allowing 2 hits and no runs, but in the next 6 games, he collapsed with 1 win, 2 losses, and an average ERA of 10.13. Even in his last appearance, against the Gwangju KIA Tigers on the 10th, he could not even take responsibility for the inning, allowing 8 hits, 5 walks, and 7 runs in 2 and 2/3 innings. So far, it has been a clear recruitment failure. The reason LG erased him rather boldly may have been because they aimed to recharge before the postseason (PS) rather than ‘declaring failure.’
Meanwhile, SSG Landers, who recently fell into a slump (2 wins, 7 losses, 1 draw in 10 games) and dropped from 2nd place to 5th place, removed infielders Kim Chan-hyung and Jeon Eui-san and pitcher Lee Ki-sun from the first team at once. Kiwoom, the lowest ranked team on a 7-game losing streak, eliminated pitcher Byun Si-won and outfielder Lee Hyeong-jong. KIA, which is continuing its recent upward trend, sent pitcher Kim Geon-guk to the second team, while NC Dinos, which also did the same, sent outfielder Jae-Hwan Chun to the second team. The Samsung Lions also canceled pitcher Kim Si-hyun.
