The Hanwha Eagles are unable to escape from the bottom of the league. With pitcher Kim Min-woo’s injury overlapping, this week he will play against the Kia Tigers and the NC Dinos.
Last week, Hanwha achieved a winning series with 2 wins and 1 loss in 3 consecutive matches against Lotte, 4th in the league. It was the second consecutive winning series following the LG Twins on the 9th. With two wins against Lotte, Hanwha’s win rate exceeded 40%.메이저놀이터
However, in the confrontation with Kiwoom Heroes, who are in 7th place in the league, they showed a somewhat sluggish appearance and missed the chance to get out of last place.
As of the 18th, after two consecutive matches with Kiwoom, Hanwha has 1 draw and 1 loss. On the 16th, the first game, Hanwha and Kiwoom fought fiercely until the 12th inning, but the game ended in a 2-2 draw without any additional points.
In the second game, on the 18th, they lost 6-9. Hanwha reversed the game from 0-4 to 6-5, but eventually suffered the bitter taste of defeat as the bullpen continued to lose points.
Hanwha, who failed to get out of last place, faced bad news of injury.
In the game against Lotte on the 14th, Kim Min-woo suddenly complained of pain in his right shoulder and went down the mound. Kim Min-woo, who had a checkup at Sejong Sports Orthopedic Surgery the next day, was diagnosed with a tear in his right shoulder, and is scheduled to undergo rehabilitation for 2-3 months.
Kim Min-woo recorded an average ERA of 4.00 with 14 wins and 10 losses in 2021, and last season, he kept the starting rotation and recorded 6 wins and 11 losses with an ERA of 4.36. He has been sluggish this season with a 6.79 earned run average of 1 win and 6 losses due to large and small injuries, but he is the only player in the starting rotation among Hanwha domestic pitchers over the past three years. The long-term departure of proven starting pitchers is inevitable for Hanwha.
Hanwha plans to replace Kim Min-woo’s vacancy with fourth-year right-hander Han Seung-joo. Manager Choi Won-ho explained that Han Seung-joo is a pitcher who received starting classes in the Futures League, so he will be able to handle the rotation without much difficulty.
Coach Choi praised Han Seung-ju, saying, “Han Seung-ju is fast-paced and aggressive, so I liked him a lot even when I was a second-team coach.”
In this situation, Hanwha will face off against the Kia Tigers and the NC Dinos this week.
On the 20th, we will play against Kia in Daejeon for 3 consecutive games, and on the 23rd, we will play against NC in Changwon.
Kia, 6th in the league, has a win rate of 0.466 with 27 wins and 31 losses. It is 2.5 games away from Doosan Bears, 5th in the league, and is on the way to the top.메이저사이트주소
