Lee Kang-in’s fantastic goal! Clinsmanho leads Bahrain 2-1 again…The assist is Kim Minjae

The South Korean men’s national soccer team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, is facing off against Bahrain in the first Group E match of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup Qatar 2023 at 8:30 p.m. on the 15th (Korea Standard Time) at the Jasim bin Hamad Stadium in Doha, Qatar. Lee Kang-in scored a goal to take a 2-1 lead.

South Korea took out a 4-4-2 formation. Son Heung-min and Cho Kyu-sung matched the attacking combination, while Lee Jae-sung, Hwang In-beom, Park Yong-woo and Lee Kang-in stood in the midfield. Lee Ki-je, Kim Min-jae, Jung Seung-hyun and Seol Young-woo set up a four-back, and goalkeeper Kim Seung-gyu kept the goal.

Bahrain faced off with a 4-5-1 formation. Abdullah al-Hashashi was placed on the front line, while Komail al-Aswad-Mohamed Maroon-Mohamed al-Hardan-Moses Atede-Ali Madan stood in the midfield. Hajj Ali-Walid al-Hayam-Amin Benadi-Mohamed Adel bagged four back. The goalkeeper’s gloves were worn by Ebrahim Rutfala.

The first half ended with South Korea leading 1-0, thanks to Hwang In-beom’s goal. South Korea faced a crisis. In the fifth minute of the second half, Al-Aswad connected with a shot to the ball that Al-Hashashi had stabbed, and Kim Seung-gyu made a difficult hit.

Korea lost a point. In the sixth minute of the second half, a penetrating pass in the box led to a shot, which Park Yong-woo blocked. However, the ball passed to Al-Hashashi, who was waiting in the box, and he shot straight to score a goal.

Korea went ahead again. Lee Kang-in, who caught Kim Min-jae’s fast pass in the 11th minute of the second half, fired a powerful left-footed shot from far from the box. The ball was perfectly wrapped and shook the net. 사설 토토사이트

Werner said in an interview with Tottenham, “First of all, I’m very happy to come to Tottenham.

I moved to a very big club. I’ve already played against Tottenham many times. Whether it was playing for Chelsea or Leipzig, to face Tottenham was a very big game. Now I’m happy to be a part of Tottenham and I’m really looking forward to it,” he said in a statement.

He admitted that his conversations with Enze Postecoglou were important in his transfer. He said, “Most of all, a lot of things led me in my conversations with the coach. It was a really good conversation. Postecoglou immediately explained how I felt like I was a necessary player for Tottenham, how I wanted to feel in the conversation, how I wanted to play football and how I let my team play football. I thought it suited me perfectly.”

Postecoglou said in a pre-press conference, “As Sonny (Son Heung-min’s nickname) has been away for a long time, I thought we needed another player for the final third. The center back was a priority, but I wanted to move quickly if the opportunity arises. I had a conversation with Johan Lange, the technical director, and I thought Werner would fit our team well in style.”

He continued, “Berner can play all three positions, left, right and center, adding depth and quality to the front. I was really motivated and loved the opportunity at Tottenham. Sonny was away and Dejan Kulusevski has been used as a side and attacking midfielder due to injuries. Werner has the flexibility to play in any position depending on the game. It was attractive to be able to play in any position.” 토토사이트 순위

Dragushin is also wearing a Tottenham uniform. Romanian center back Dragushin is from Juventus. When his playing time was limited at Juventus, he gained experience on loan in Sampdoria and Salernitana to improve his skills. The next destination was Genoa. After making a complete transfer on loan last season, he stayed in Genoa. After playing for Genoa for two seasons, Italy’s Serie A is drawing keen attention as a center back.

“Dragushin is a rear build-up leader in Genoa. He has a very high rate of success in tackling and has dribbled throughout this season. He ranks first in the center-back competition (58 times) and second in clearing (82 times). He boasts of fairly good covering ability. As a defender, he is a warrior and sweeps the backside. One of his strengths is not to be afraid of competition. With good coaching, he can become a better player. Dragushin will follow Coach Postecoglou’s soccer well. He has shown good performances as a native of Juventus (Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancur) came to Tottenham, and Dragushin can be one of them.”

Bayern Munich tried to hijack Dragushin, but the Dragushin option was Tottenham. “Our player has decided to respect and believe in Tottenham’s promise. Everyone is shocked that they turned down Munich,” the Dragushin agent said. The Dragushin deal included Jed Spence’s loan to Genoa. Dragushin came and Eric Dier went to Bayern Munich. Munich, which was as urgent as Tottenham, brought Dier in to fill the gap.

Dyer, who has been named Tottenham’s defensive leader after Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld, was considered a key player after the two left. Sometimes he showed brilliant performances, but he showed the worst defensive performance, and was blamed for Tottenham’s collapse last season. Postecoglou completely excluded Dyer and formed a defensive line. Christian Romero and Mickey van der Pen formed the main center back line. Dyer was not deployed even after both were injured at the same time. Regarding Dyer’s future, Postecoglou said, “I don’t know. He is not on my radar. Dyer has a contract with Tottenham and is controlling his fate.” In the end, Dyer left Tottenham after 10 years.

Dyer said in Munich, “My goals are the same as the team’s. I think our goals are the same. I came here to win. My goal is to help the team succeed as much as possible. (Not playing often for Tottenham) was the decision of the club and the manager, and I accepted that. I always put a lot of effort into keeping myself in shape, and I have done so over the past few months and I am in good shape. When you join these big clubs, there is always a fierce competition for a place. I am looking forward to playing with the whole team. We have great strikers on the team. I am also looking forward to playing against them on the training ground.”

Meanwhile, Dragushin said in a joining interview, “I can say that I decided to join after hearing about Tottenham. After thinking a lot and considering all aspects, I think it is the best choice for my career. I was looking forward to joining Tottenham because I knew it had a huge fan base and great staff and players. I had already made the decision in my heart. It’s amazing. I didn’t imagine all this, and I’m looking forward to getting to know everyone and playing on the pitch. First of all, basically, Manager Enze Postecoglou said he wanted me to join the club, that he liked the way I played, and that he thought I would fit into this team well. It definitely helped me, and as soon as I talked to the manager, I felt a really good bond.”

“I like soccer like this, with a high defensive line, aggressive, and a lot of room at the back to defend. I’m really looking forward to it. It’s a big step for me, but I feel like it’s the right step. I want to play the best level of football my whole life, and I want to play in the Premier League, so I can say that all my dreams have come true, and I’m excited. I’m ready to take on the challenge. I’ve always loved the intensity of this league, the physicality of this league, and I think it’s a really good league to grow and expand my career. I’m really happy to be here, really excited, and I want to step on the pitch as soon as possible,” he said. Dragushin’s number is six, which was worn by Nabil Bentaleb, Tom Huddleston, and Davinson Sanchez.

Dragucin was welcomed, but his agent’s interview became controversial. The agent said, “Of course, Dragucin thought about Munich’s offer. We made a decision in the morning, and it’s not easy to make that choice. Munich strongly wanted him, but the official offer only came last night. There was more money in Munich, but he said it was the right step for his career. We thought all night, and I couldn’t sleep at all. Both Napoli and AC Milan wanted him. But Dragucin dreamed of playing in the Premier League since he was a little boy. In three to four years, you will see Dragucin at Real Madrid. We are only just beginning, and we hope to reach the best club in the world. Munich is one of the biggest clubs, but his dream is either Real or Barcelona,” which has sparked controversy among fans.

Along with Werner and Dragucin, news of Romero’s return to injury stood out. Van de Pence has completed his return to injury. In the third round of the English FA Cup against Burnley, he was listed on the bench. He did not force himself to play. Romero was also set to make an early return. He was originally expected to miss about a month. As a result, Romero was expected to return to England’s FA Cup match against Manchester City. However, according to The Athletic, Romero recovered quickly. Werner will start and Dragucin will start on the bench. Van de Pence and Romero were the starting players and defended their defense.

Samsung on Lee Dae-sung ‘prior contact’ allegations: “He wasn’t a registered KBL player”

The Seoul Samsung team, which has been accused of having ‘prior contact’ with Lee Dae-sung, who returned to South Korean professional basketball after a one-year absence, claimed that there were no clear ‘guidelines’ involved.

Lee Dae-sung, who signed a two-year, 600 million won contract with Samsung on Nov. 21, chose to ‘break through’ the controversy surrounding him by calling a press conference on Nov. 22.

Lee, who boasted of his top-notch performance in the league, including being the top scorer among domestic players for two consecutive seasons, curiously announced a year ago that he was leaving Korea because he wanted more competition, much to the dismay of basketball fans.

He has been very vocal about his disagreements with his former team, Daegu KOGAS, stating that he is “sorry” but “there was no sincere offer,” and referring to the club’s response as “embarrassing” 메이저 토토사이트 seven times.

Another point of interest is whether Lee and Samsung engaged in “prior contact,” which is prohibited by the KBL.

Some suspect that Lee, who is close to Kim Hyo-beom, who became Samsung’s official head coach last month, agreed to join Samsung early on and acted as if he was waiting for an offer from KOGAS.

It is believed that he had already decided to join Samsung before registering with the KBL as a ‘non-contracted’ player to enter the free agency (FA) market.

“When I received the offer (from Samsung), it was actually a situation where (the club) could not make an official offer (until the termination of his contract with Japan’s Shihoshis Mikawa), and I think there was no big problem with opinions and things like that because I was close to coach Kim Hyo-beom, so I was comfortable with it, to the point where I knew it even if I didn’t say it,” Lee said.

“In fact, at the end of the negotiations with Mikawa, my contract had to be terminated before I could do anything, so that’s how it happened,” he added.

As for his relocation, he explained that he and Kim were “on the same page” with the same management company, but it wasn’t until he received an official offer from the club that he began negotiations with Mikawa.

He declined to comment on how much detail he discussed joining Samsung with the commander while having an enemy in Mikawa.

“The exact details of the contract we talked about were negotiated during the free agency period,” said a Samsung representative at the press conference, adding, “We haven’t heard of them saying, ‘Hey, do you want to play for Samsung?’ because they are acquaintances.”

“I think that’s between them. It’s a private relationship,” he said, adding, ‘Honestly, I don’t know exactly what their status is.’

The official asked whether Lee, who played in Japan’s B League, which has a different system from Korea’s, and a different method and duration of free agency negotiations, could be strictly judged by KBL standards for prior contact.

“(Lee Dae-sung) was not a registered player in Korea until now,” the official said, “I don’t know if (what we did) was pre-contact, but we need to confirm that. There should be clear guidelines,” the official said.

“Also, we need to see if unsigned players (like Lee Dae-sung) are subject to the pre-contact ban during the free agency period. An unsigned player is just someone who has been a free agent for a year,” he pointed out.

“Since this is the first case, it should be used as a lesson learned and clearly defined in the new system.”

The KBL announces free agents the day after the end of the playoffs each season. Clubs and players are prohibited from contacting each other for contracts or negotiations until the announcement is made.

However, even if Lee and Kim can prove that they actually talked about joining the league, it’s hard to say how far the league can go in regulating such close “Saddam” exchanges.

KBL said, “We will look into this case and comprehensively review whether there is any violation of regulations.”

Brown saved it, Tatum finished it—Boston tops Indiana in overtime thriller

They were on the brink of defeat and then came back with a dramatic three-pointer. The Boston Celtics, the National Basketball Association’s (NBA) top-seeded team in the regular season, took the first step toward the championship game with a hard-fought Game 1 victory.

The Celtics defeated the Indiana Pacers 133-128 in overtime in Game 1 of the best-of-seven 2023-2024 NBA Eastern Conference Finals at TD Garden in Boston on Wednesday. 스포츠토토존 The two teams will meet in Game 2 on Nov. 24 at the same location.

Boston, which finished the regular season with a 64-18 record and a .780 winning percentage to lead the NBA, came back from the brink of defeat in dramatic fashion. Trailing 114-117 with six seconds left in the fourth quarter, Jaylen Brown’s three-pointer off a pass from Jrue Halladay hit the rim to dramatically tie the game at 117-117 and send the game into overtime.

The balance of the game continued to tip in Boston’s favor in overtime, with Jayson Tatum hitting a three-pointer off a pass from Derrick White with 42.2 seconds left in regulation to give Boston a 124-123 lead. White followed with a layup to make it 129-123 with 25 seconds left in regulation. With 12.2 seconds left, Indiana’s Obi Toffin hit two free throws to pull within 131-128, but Tatum hit two free throws with 8.2 seconds left to seal the deal.

Tatum led the way with a 36-point, 12-rebound performance, including 10 points in overtime alone. Halladay and Brown chipped in with 28 and 26 points, respectively. Indiana was led by Tyreese Halliburton’s 25 points and 10 assists and Myles Turner’s 23 points and 10 rebounds.

“I was going to resign,” Kim Hyun-Seok confesses shock→KU’s faith wins against Suwon… Players who heard the news said, “Don’t go!”

After 12 games in charge this season, Kim Hyun-seok decided to hang up his boots at Chungnam Asan FC. However, the club refused and Kim was rewarded with a win over Suwon Samsung Electronics.

Ahead of this season, Chungnam Asan has undergone a major change. Park Dong-hyuk, who had been in charge since 2017, left for Gyeongnam. He was replaced by Kim Hyun-seok, who served as the club’s general secretary until last season. Kim had previously coached at Gangneung Jungang High School and Ulsan University, but had no professional coaching experience.

Under Kim, Chungnam Asan played a much different style of soccer than before. Chungnam Asan played an aggressive attacking style of soccer with a high defensive line. The team’s goal-scoring prowess has definitely changed. Last season, Chungnam Asan scored 39 goals in 36 games. They were 10th in the league in goals scored. 카지노사이트킴 This season, they’ve scored 17 goals in 13 games, good for fifth in the league.

While the offense has become more potent, the defense has been the problem. Their high defensive line left them vulnerable in the back. The defense also faltered physically as they defended a wide area. Chungnam Asan conceded goals in 12 consecutive games after the start of the season, and the number of games they lost or tied after scoring the first goal increased. Chungnam Asan, which was ranked first in the league, has fallen to ninth place.

Poor results have led coach Kim Hyun-seok to make a decision. Chungnam Asan lost 1-2 against Gimpo FC in the last match of the first round robin on March 15, and the team finished ninth, and Kim Hyun-seok handed in his resignation to the club. Generally speaking, when a coach is appointed to a new team, he needs time to find his feet. However, Kim Hyun-seok had a different opinion.

“When you take charge of a team, you have to take responsibility and lead the players. I think soccer is a game where teams are strong and weak, and when you start a league, you have to produce results. If I can’t put tactics on the players, I have to take responsibility, and if I don’t get results, I can take responsibility early, whether it’s for a long or short period of time. I started with the determination to quit if I didn’t get results, so I thought I had to take responsibility as a coach after the first round robin.”

Despite Kim Hyun-seok’s resignation, CEO Lee Joon-il did not approve his resignation, wanting him to finish the season. Kim took heart and prepared for the 14th round match against Suwon on the 21st. “I kept analyzing Suwon to dig into their weaknesses,” said Kim Hyun-seok about the preparation process. Before this match, I prepared by sleeping for two hours every day. I had a cold and couldn’t sleep even though I took medication,” he said.

Chungnam Asan came out with their own brand of soccer against Suwon. They took the lead early on, with Kang Min-kyu finding the back of the net. They also capitalized on their numerical advantage when Kazuki was sent off. The dramatic goal came at the end of the game. In the fourth minute of second-half stoppage time, Hwang Ki-wook found the back of the net with a left-footed shot from the front of the penalty box. Chungnam Asan kept their first clean sheet in 13 matches and secured a valuable victory.

After the game, the players learned that head coach Kim Hyun-seok had announced his intention to resign after the match against Gimpo. The players reacted as if they couldn’t let him go. “Don’t go! Don’t go!” Hwang Ki-wook shouted in the locker room. “The good atmosphere in Chungnam Asan right now is thanks to the coach. When I heard the news, I was shocked,” he said, expressing his affection for Kim Hyun-seok.

Now, Kim Hyun-seok plans to put everything into Chungnam Asan. “I won’t think about resigning anymore. I will try again with my mind set on helping Chungnam Asan achieve good results until the end of the season. I will forget about the past and focus on the upcoming matches. I will do better than last season,” he said. Chungnam Asan moved up to fifth place with the win over Suwon.

Changnyeong Superstar FC wins group at ’10th Gyeongsangnam-do Developmental Football Tournament’

Changnyeong Superstar FC, affiliated with the Changnyeong County Welfare Center for the Disabled, won the Group C title at the 10th Gyeongsangnam-do Developmental Disability Football Tournament on March 18.

A total of 17 teams participated in the tournament, which was held in a five-a-side match according to the Korean Special Olympics soccer rules, and played a full league in four groups arbitrarily divided into A through D. 홀덤사이트 The group winners were then determined.

In Group C, Changnyeong Superstar FC won all three of their matches to win the group title.

Meanwhile, Changnyeong Superstar FC defender Nam Ki-seon was awarded the Most Valuable Player award for his outstanding performance.

Changnyeong Superstar FC was founded in February 2013 and won the inaugural Gyeongsangnam-do Intellectual Disability Football Tournament in April of the same year.

Since then, the team has continued to participate in national competitions, including the Korea Special Olympics, and has won a total of eight titles.

“I’m very happy that my hard work paid off, and I’m proud of the fact that I was able to help the team,” said Nam Ki-seon, who won the Most Valuable Player award.

Shin Kwang-hoon, a 19-year K League player who is still a mainstay of Pohang…“The moment I decided to limit myself, it was over”

Shin Kwang-hoon (37) of the Pohang Steelers is in his 19th year in the K League. He made his professional debut in Pohang in May 2006 and has played in 445 K League games. He has played for Jeonbuk Hyundai, Ansan Mugunghwa, FC Seoul, and Gangwon FC, and was selected for the national team in 2012.

Although he has entered his twilight years as a player, he is still the mainstay of the team. He has appeared in nine matches of the Hana Bank K League 1 2024, bringing stability to the team’s defense. His fighting spirit and daring dribbling, as well as his versatility beyond his years, 온라인카지노 make him a great addition to the squad.

Thanks to him, Pohang has been flying high this season. In Pohang’s “Taeha Drama,” which has maintained its lead under coach Park Tae-ha (7 wins, 4 draws, 2 losses, 25 points), Shin Kwang-hoon is the most senior player and plays the role of a “luxury supporting actor” who leads the juniors and sets the tone.

While he has established himself as an iconic player for Pohang and the K-League, there have been bumps along the way. When he joined Seoul in 2017, he was sidelined for a year and 10 months with osteitis pubis and almost lost his ability to play. Fortunately, he was able to rehabilitate and returned to his hometown team Pohang in 2021 after a stint with Gangwon in 2019, making his 400th K League appearance the following year.

The secret to his ‘long run’ is positive thinking. “You need to be good, but your mindset is more important. If you set yourself a limit of ‘no more’ because you’re getting older, your career will be over at that moment,” Shin said. ”Even if you don’t spit out negative thoughts, you hear them in your mind. So I try to make my thoughts as good as possible from the beginning.”

Shin is a “shogi enthusiast. He is so good at it that not only his coworkers but also his coaches are usually not his opponents. He even projects his life onto the organ. He has set his future goal as ‘sacrifice’ and says, “In shogi, there is a ‘master’ who protects the ‘palace’ (宮). I think my role right now is to be the ‘guardian’. As a senior, my goal is to play for the team and the younger players,” he concluded.

A half-billion shortstops are going through a tough time

“We’re ready to defend first and third base. Our shortstop defense is a little disappointing.”

A half-billion shortstops are going through a tough time for change.

Noh Jin-hyuk, 35, of the Lotte Giants, is facing his biggest crisis since his debut. He is batting just 1-for-8 with no home runs, two RBIs, and a .497 OPS (on-base plus slugging percentage).

He’s already been sent to the second team twice since the start of the season. He’s more desperate than anyone for a chance to bounce back.

In his time with the NC Dinos, Noh played more at third base than shortstop, but rarely at first base. However, manager Kim Tae-hyung gave Noh Jin-hyuk a mission to prepare for first and third base defense in the second team.

On June 16, he was enrolled in the first team and immediately started at first base against the Suwon KT Wiz. 안전놀이터 추천 It was his first appearance at first base since June 6, 2021, against the Hanwha Eagles, and his first start at first base in 1074 days.

His defense at first base hasn’t been perfect yet.

Even when handling foul flies, he looked awkward against the foul territory fence, which is the opposite side of the field from his usual third base side. In the second inning, he made an error on a ground ball by Chun Sung-ho.

On the 18th, he started at third base against the Doosan Bears in Jamsil. On the 19th, he came in as a pinch-hitter in the top of the seventh inning and played shortstop. So far, he looks more comfortable at shortstop and third base than at first base.

However, Noh will have to compete for a starting spot despite being a free agent worth up to 5 billion won. Earning a spot on the first team is not easy.

The first base position was solidified in May with the hard-hitting Na Seung-yup. Na has been a favorite of manager Kim Tae-hyung since the original camp, and he’s been showing the promise of late.

At shortstop, Lee Hak-joo and Park Seung-wook are a step ahead. Noh Jin-hyeok is already facing criticism for his lack of range and quickness. If Noh wants to return to the shortstop position, he’ll have to show a dominant bat or improve his defense.

The competition at third base is also fierce.

He will have to overcome competition from Son Ho-young, who is returning from injury, and veteran Jung Hoon.

When Noh was originally signed, the expectations were for him to provide the strong leadership and 20-homer power that led the NC to its first championship. With Han Dong-hee having been expunged from the first team again, and Han set to enlist in the military in June, Lotte’s batting lineup will have to rely heavily on Noh or Yoo Kang-nam.

The good news is that he’s not hitting too badly. 카지노사이트 순위 He’s been making his presence felt in every game he’s played, including a double against Doosan.

Can Noh bring a smile to manager Kim Tae-hyung’s face? At 35 years old, the suspicion of an aging curve is inevitable. It’s up to him to prove himself.

A No. 4 batsman for life?

A No. 4 batsman for life?

Choi Hyung-woo (40), the oldest player on the Kia Tigers, is making a name for himself as an inexorable fixer. As of May 20, he is batting 3-for-3. His numbers don’t stop there. He has eight home runs and 42 RBIs. He’s a perfect 3-for-4 with runners in scoring position. He has an OPS (on-base plus slugging percentage) of .899. This is for a player who is over 40 years old and will turn 41 in December.

He leads the team in RBIs. He has 42 RBI in 45 games. That’s far more than Lee Woo-sung (30), who is second on the team. With 98 games remaining, he is on pace for 130 RBIs. He is also on pace to reach triple digits for the first time in four years after collecting 115 RBIs in the 2020 season. He will become the oldest player to reach 100 RBIs. 스포츠토토 That’s possible if he stays healthy and doesn’t get injured, as he has a good batting lineup that creates chances, including Park Chan-ho, Kim Do-young, Choi Won-joon and Na Sung-beom.

Lee Beom-ho’s plans were also thrown off track.

Before the start of the season, he envisioned an elite batting lineup. Na Sung-beom was the No. 4 hitter in the lineup. The plan was to put the speedy Park Chan-ho, Choi Won-joon, and Kim Do-young in the 1-3 spots and use Na Sung-beom in the No. 4 spot. Socrates Brito at No. 5 and Choi Hyung-woo at No. 6 would be the strongest combination in the batting order. He also thought about Lee Woo-sung, who has good baserunning ability, at No. 9.

Choi Hyung-woo agreed, saying, “I think it would be good to bat around No. 6.” However, the manager’s plans changed when Na Sung-beom went down with a hamstring injury before the opening day. Choi Hyung-woo opened the season as the No. 4 hitter and was hot at the plate. In three games, he collected two home runs and five RBIs. Even he was surprised by his opening pace.

However, he cooled off in the next three games and went 2-for-5 in April. His OPS was just .739. Still, he hit three home runs and collected 22 RBIs. He was a solid No. 4 hitter who did his share of work in scoring chances. In the warmer months of May, he really came alive. In 15 games, he’s batting 4-for-15 with three home runs, 15 RBIs, and an OPS of 1.143.

Na Sung-beom is still batting fourth despite his return.

There was a reason why Na went into a severe slump early in his comeback. He’s been bouncing back lately, but he’s mostly batting third. Choi Hyung-woo has been showing off his clutch ability to the point where he’s been able to fill in where Na hasn’t been able to. His batting average is up to 30% and he’s playing as well as he did in his prime.

He even played left field defense for Na and the team. He”s back in the lineup, but the risk of re-injuring his hamstring makes it difficult for him to play full games. He will have to play one or two games a week as a designated hitter. Choi Hyung-woo will then play left field. When Na Sung-beom was injured, he immediately asked the coach to play left field, 토토사이트 순위 something Lee Bum-ho is most grateful for.

When the team’s bullpen struggled in a three-game series against Changwon last weekend, Lee urged the batters to “show more strength,” and he himself had three hits in the three-game series. His contributions are not limited to his walks. He signed a two-year, 1.8 billion won contract after last season. At this rate, he will likely sign another multi-year contract after next season. There are even jokes around him that he should bat No. 4 for the rest of his life. Choi Hyung-woo is in the midst of an unstoppable youth.

“I don’t think I have faith in him yet.”

“I don’t think I have faith in him yet.”

That’s what Lotte Giants manager Kim Tae-hyung said in late April when asked about left-handed pitching prospect Kim Jin-wook (22), who he believes should be utilized as a starter. Entering his fourth year with the team after being drafted in the first round of the 2021 rookie draft, Kim failed to realize his full potential and failed to catch the eye of new manager Kim Tae-hyung. “I think too much. I’m in a hurry. Trying to do things too perfectly.” However, Kim Jin-wook still wandered.

For now, Kim Tae-hyung has limited his utilization to the starting lineup. No more position changes are expected. He had been bouncing between the starting rotation and the bullpen, unable to settle into one position. This year, however, Kim was given the opportunity to rotate consistently in the starting rotation with the second team.

It was a roller coaster in the first four games.

On March 26, he pitched a no-hitter with three innings of two-hit, four-strikeout ball against the NC, but on April 5, he gave up seven runs on eight hits (two homers), two walks, one hit batsman, and one strikeout in four innings against Samsung Electronics. In his start against Doosan on April 11, he pitched 5 innings with 3 hits, 2 walks, 6 strikeouts, and no runs, but on April 18, he had another disappointing outing against KT with 4⅓ innings with 6 hits, 4 walks, 1 strikeout, and 3 runs. 안전놀이터 However, after about a month of readjustment, Kim has been pitching consistently since May. He has surprised everyone with his smooth and relaxed pitching style and content, rather than his powerful and wild mid-to-high 140-kilometer fastball.

On the 9th, he pitched a no-hitter with 4 innings, 1 hit, 2 walks, and no strikeouts against KT, and on the 14th, he pitched 5 innings, 4 hits, 5 walks, and no runs against NC. It was a four-hitter. He also raised his pitch count to 81. On the 19th, he pitched five innings of two-hit ball with nine strikeouts and no walks against Hanwha.

In his last three games, he has gone 14 innings without allowing an earned run while walking just one. In his last two games, he’s gone five or more innings without allowing a walk, which is encouraging for a pitcher who has struggled with his command. His strikeouts have come naturally as he’s been able to get strikes on his pitches. In 14 innings, he struck out 16 batters.

Lee In-bok, who started the season as one of Lotte’s five starters,

He is now out of the first-team roster after going 2-2 with a 7.00 ERA in six games without a win. His struggles have been exacerbated by the number of games in which he has allowed runs. Fourth starter Na Gyun-an has also been disappointing this year with a 7.13 ERA in nine games. His ERA in May was a whopping 12.71.

The new starting staff had to be tested. First, Lee In-bok was dropped from the first team roster after his last appearance against Kiwoom on March 30, and since then, the players who have been rotating through the starting rotation in the second team have been given their turn.

The first player to get his chance was left-hander Hong Min-ki, a 2020 first-rounder who was selected in the same draft as Kim Jin-wook. After proving himself with a 1.59 ERA in six games (22⅔ innings pitched) in the second team, Hong was given the opportunity to make his first first-team start on Dec. 12. The results were less than satisfactory. He left the mound after 2⅔ innings, giving up two runs on four hits and two walks with one strikeout. With a fastball that topped out at 149 mph and a two-seam curveball, Hong struggled against a formidable LG lineup, but the defense didn’t help him in his first start.

Hong was promptly removed from the first team roster the next day.

The second player to earn a spot in the five-man squad was right-handed fireballer Lee Min-seok. The 2022 first-round pick was expected to take over the closer role last year after coming out of the bullpen in his rookie season. However, he suffered an elbow injury in the opening game of the season and underwent ligament splicing surgery and bone chip removal. He rehabbed well and has been in the starting rotation with the second team since his return, as the organization looks to develop him as a starter. In his first five games back, he didn’t score a run and didn’t easily regain his feel for the game. His record was naturally poor.

However, as he gradually improved his feel for the game and his pitches, Lee realized his potential as a starting pitcher. He started with a no-hitter against Samsung Electronics on April 26, pitching four innings of one-hit ball with four strikeouts and no walks, followed by a four-hitter against KIA on May 3 with one hit, three walks and six strikeouts, and finished with a five-inning no-hitter against KT on May 9 with two hits, one walk and six strikeouts.He made his first-team debut on April 19 against Doosan in Jamsil. Lee Min-seok was also sent down early. In 3⅓ innings, he allowed two runs on three hits with one walk and four strikeouts. 슬롯 보증 사이트 After giving up a single to Yang Ji-hyeon in the fourth inning, he signaled that something was wrong. He bruised his finger and had to leave the mound early for protection. However, his fastball, which topped out at 154 mph, gave him more promise for the future. For now, Lee Min-seok is back on the disabled list to recover from his finger injury.

After Hong Ming-ki and Lee Min-seok, who will be the next pitcher to get the fifth spot?

For now, it’s likely to be Kim Jin-wook. The pitching order is also a perfect fit. On the 19th, Lee Min-seok and Kim Jin-wook started side-by-side in the first and second teams, and with Lee Min-seok’s absence, the starting pitching spot for the 25th was vacant. We can naturally expect Kim to start in this spot with five days of rest. Will Kim’s recent performance earn him the trust of manager Kim Tae-hyung again, and will he get his first start of the year?
