Kim Gwang-hyun is back. He returns to the first team mound this week.
SSG Landers left-handed pitcher Kim Gwang-hyun was canceled from the first team entry on the 11th. The reason is inflammation of the left shoulder area. This is Kim Gwang-hyun, who did not have good results from the previous pitch. He showed a shaky appearance with 8 hits (1 home run), 1 strikeout, 4 walks and 5 runs in 3 innings against the Hanwha Eagles on the 8th. The team took a breather with a come-from-behind victory, but the pitching content was not up to the name of ‘Ace’ Kim Gwang-hyun.
There was an injury problem. After finishing the mound, Kim Gwang-hyun complained of discomfort in his shoulder area, and as a result of a close examination at the hospital, his shoulder bursitis was found to be inflamed. Afterwards, Kim Gwang-hyun took a break and went into reorganization. At the time of the cancellation, director Kim Won-hyung explained, “I can come back if I take a break for about 10 days, which is the period of cancellation of the entry.”
While Kim Gwang-hyun was missing, SSG succeeded with Song Young-jin, a first-year high school graduate, as a substitute starter. Song Young-jin made his first professional debut on the 14th against the Incheon NC Dinos. The result was a winning pitcher with no hits, 7 strikeouts, 2 walks and 1 walk in 5 innings. His first win in his professional debut was a starter win. 안전놀이터
Manager Kim Won-hyeong plans to give Song Young-jin another chance to start. It’s not unreasonable for him to make another appearance as he pitched impressively in his debut. Manager Kim Won-hyung announced, “Young-jin will go out in the next turn, the 20th, against Suwon KT Wiz.”
With Song Young-jin in the starting rotation twice, he could buy Kim Gwang-hyun enough time. Director Kim Won-hyung added, “Kwang-hyeon fills up the period for about 10 days and returns next week. Next week’s rotation is a temporary 6-man rotation. With Kim Gwang-hyun joining, 6 players go to the game in order,” he added an additional explanation. Starting with Moon Seung-won, Park Jong-hoon, Song Young-jin, Kirk McCarty, Oh Won-seok and Kim Gwang-hyun fill the week in order. From the 18th, SSG will play three consecutive matches against KT in Suwon and three consecutive matches against Kiwoom Heroes in Incheon on the weekend.
