Lotte has to urgently find a replacement starter due to the unexpected departure of ‘local ace’ Na Kyun-an due to injury. Will Cha Woo-chan, a lefty with 112 wins, get a chance?바카라

Prior to the 12th game of the season against KT Wiz at Suwon KT Wiz Park on the 22nd, the Lotte Giants excluded right-handed pitchers Na Kyun-an and Park Jin from the first-team entry, and registered right-handed pitcher Lee In-bok and left-handed pitcher Shim Jae-min. Lee In-bok was the starting pitcher that day, and Shim Jae-min was registered for the first time after the trade.

Na Kyun-an’s reason for expungement was injury. Na Gyun-an started against Suwon KT on the 21st and became a losing pitcher with 10 hits, 2 walks, 3 strikeouts and 6 runs in 5 innings. To make matters worse, he complained of pain in his right elbow during the game, and was taken to the hospital on the 22nd.

As a result of an MRI examination at Good Samsun Hospital, a designated hospital for the Lotte club, Kyun-an Na received inflammation in the inner part of the right elbow. Fortunately, he can train after 2-3 days of treatment, and plans to join the rehabilitation group on the 23rd and focus on recovering his condition.

Lotte coach Larry Sutton, whom we met in Suwon on the 22nd, said, “The best scenario is for Na Kyun-ahn to return from rehabilitation for 10 days and immediately join the starting rotation. However, he has to check the injured area every two days and look at the situation.”

With the departure of Kyun-an Na, Lotte had a vacant starting position for the resignation Samsung match on the 27th. Regarding the replacement selection, Sutton said, “We are continuing to talk with the coaching staff to find a replacement. For now, I will decide after watching today’s game and the weekend LG match.”

If so, can Cha Woo-chan, a lefty with 113 wins, who is aiming for a comeback in the 2nd team, be an alternative? Cha Woo-chan, who left LG after the 2022 season, signed a contract with Lotte for an annual salary of 50 million won and extended his active service. Afterwards, he played in the Futures League match against SSG on the 10th and showed 1 inning, 1 hit, 2 strikeouts and no runs.

Regarding the possibility of Cha Woo-chan’s start, Sutton said, “I’m thinking of several people with various possibilities. Cha Woo-chan is also one of the many possibilities,” he said. “First of all, today’s game is more important. I have to bring the atmosphere back,” he avoided answering.

On the other hand, Lotte is facing KT starter Wes Benjamin, Koh Seung-min (1st baseman) – Yoon Dong-hee (right fielder) – Jeon Jun-woo (designated hitter) – Jack Rex (left fielder) – Ahn Chi-hong (2nd baseman) – Yoo Kang-nam (catcher) – Han Dong-hee (3rd baseman) – Park Seung-wook (shortstop) and Hwang Seong-bin (center fielder) formed the starting lineup. The starting pitcher is Lee In-bok, who has returned from elbow surgery.
