Kiwoom Moon Seong-hyun canceled due to elbow pain… NC secured the main catcher spot?
Kiwoom Heroes, NC Dinos, and Samsung토토사이트 Lions reorganized their first-team entries ahead of the start of the three-game series on the 25th.
KBO announced on the afternoon of the 24th that Kiwoom pitchers Moon Seong-hyun and Lee Seung-ho, NC infielder Kim Soo-yoon, Samsung infielder Kim Ho-jae An Joo-hyung and outfielder Song Jun-seok were canceled from the first team.
NC seems to be preparing for Park Se-hyuk’s return to the first team. Park Se-hyeok was hit in the back of the head by Guillermo Heredia’s backswing in a match against SSG on the 14th. He was immediately diagnosed at the hospital, and although no major problems appeared, he was expelled from the first group to be stable. He can return to the first team on the 25th. Kim Su-yoon played in 2 games from the 16th to the 23rd after registering for the 1st team.
Lee Seung-ho of Kiwoom struggled in his first first-team game this season as a starting pitcher. He gave up three hits and three walks, including one home run, and gave up three runs in ⅔ innings against SSG Landers on the 23rd. Although he did not become a losing pitcher, he did not have an impressive performance.
Moon Seong-hyeon has not played since the match against Samsung on the 20th. According to Kiwoom club officials, Moon Seong-hyun dropped out of the first team due to right elbow pain, and is scheduled to undergo a checkup at the hospital.
Samsung has the most changes. Kim Ho-jae had a batting average of 0.214 in eight games this year. In 3 consecutive matches with KIA, he recorded no hits in 3 at-bats. Ahn Joo-hyung went 5-for-2 in 4 games, and Song Jun-seok went down to the Futures team with 2 hits in 6 games and 8 at-bats. The club explained that all three players were not expunged from the first team due to injury.
