Doosan manager Lee Seung-yeop keeps touching the bullpen phone as if he's worried about it.

Doosan manager Lee Seung-yeop keeps touching the bullpen phone as if he's worried about it.

Choi Won-jun, who started the season as the 4th starter for the professional baseball Doosan Bears, was expunged from the first team entry.

Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop reprimanded Choi Won-jun unusually strongly and expected him to exert himself.

Coach Lee met with reporters ahead of the SSG Landers game to be held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 3rd and said, "Choi Won-jun was unable to overwhelm the opponent in the two games after the opening and pitched overwhelmingly," and "In fact, he did not have the advantage as a starting pitcher. He explained the reason for being excluded from the first team, saying, “I can feel it. I am not confident that I will win against my opponent.”

Choi Won-jun played poorly against Suwon KT Wiz on the 27th of last month, hitting three home runs and allowing five runs in five innings, but won with the help of the team's batting lineup.

However, in the game against Incheon SSG on the 2nd, he collapsed with 5 hits and 6 runs in 3 innings, becoming the losing pitcher. This time too, he hit three home runs.

The number of home runs he has given up since the opening game is 6 in 2 games. His earned run average is 12.38.

Coach Lee said, "I am not yet able to show the performance I showed during the exhibition game or camp," and added, "I was thinking too much after getting 2 strikes, so I tried to throw a full pitch, but I faltered. It's because my confidence was low."

Due to Choi Won-jun's departure, Doosan must find a starting pitcher for the game against the Busan Lotte Giants on the 7th.

Manager Lee predicted, "I am considering Kim Min-gyu and Park Shin-ji as replacement starters. Both players will be in the bullpen for today's game (3rd), and Park Shin-ji will likely be the starter on Sunday (7th)."

Rookie Kim Taek-yeon, who was considered a strong candidate for the Rookie of the Year Award, expressed his intention to be promoted to the first team within this month and utilize it.

Kim Taek-yeon, who pitched three times in exhibition games and earned two saves without giving up a single hit, garnered attention as a "future Doosan closing pitcher," but suffered from poor pitch control, giving up five walks in three games after the start of the regular season. He was expunged from Group 1 on the 30th.

Taek-yeon Kim took the mound in the Futures (2nd team) league game against Goyang Heroes on the 2nd and pitched well, allowing no runs with 1 walk, 2 strikeouts, and 1 inning.

Manager Lee said, "When he calms down, he will clearly show good pitching skills. He is not a pitcher who will be easily hit if he throws a strike where he wants. We need a pitcher who can suppress his opponent with strength." 한국야동
