He only said, “I will endure it.” He ranked No. 1 on the last day of the first half. Choi Won-tae and Oh Ji-hwan, who are supportive, will return in the first week of the second half

LG Twins manager Yeom Kyung-yeop, who said he had to “stand” throughout the season, ranked first on the last day of the first half.

“Overall, the team was difficult,” Yeom said, looking back on the first half before the final game of the first half against the Kiwoom Heroes at Gocheok Sky Dome on the 4th. “However, it is the first half of the year that the players worked hard to create conditions to challenge for first place in the second half.”

The team won the title for the first time in 29 years last year, and its goal was to build a dynasty this year. However, it was hard to talk about winning the title during the season. As the main players were sidelined due to injury throughout the season, it was not easy to properly fight with all strength. As foreign pitchers were sluggish, they even officially replaced and engaged in survival competition.
The disappointing game also came out, but it was ranked first in early June, and it was included in the second-place group and was able to finish the first half of the year in a position where it could aim for first place.

“Anyway, our team’s goal is No. 1, our players’ goal is No. 1, and fans’ goal is No. 1. The situation is not important. We should talk about the outcome from now on. We have created an environment to challenge for No. 1 in the second half of the year. We have to go after Kia, which is currently No. 1,” Yeom said.

“We had a good flow in the first half of the year, but it’s a pity that we couldn’t continue that flow as two starters were injured,” manager Yeom said. “I think the bullpen can also stabilize if the starting rotation goes back to normal in the second half of the year. Also, the hitting pace has never risen properly. I think it will come up once a year, so I think it will be a game if it comes to the second half of the year,” he said, expressing his expectations for the No. 1 ranking in the second half of the year. 토토사이트

The main pitchers and hitters will return from the start of the second half of the season. They are Choi Won-tae, the ace in Korea, and Oh Ji-hwan, the MVP of the Korean Series. After suffering from side pain, Choi started the game against the Goyang Heroes in the Futures League, and finished his preparation to take the mound in the second half of the season by allowing three hits, two strikeouts and no runs during three innings. He recorded a maximum of 147 kilometers. He is expected to take the mound against the Hanwha Eagles in Daejeon on Saturday.

Chances are high that Oh will also join the team when the latter half begins. “(Oh) Ji-hwan will likely come one of the first three consecutive games in the second half of the year. He was the designated hitter in today’s game,” Yeom said. Oh, who initially suffered from a sprained wrist, suffered a hamstring injury while preparing for his return, which delayed his return. He played as the first designated hitter in the game against independent team Hwaseong Coreyo at the Icheon LG Champions Park, not the Futures League, and recorded three hits and one walk from four times at bat on the day.

If Choi Won-tae and Oh Ji-hwan return, they will be able to fill up five starting players and nine starting players and start the second half of the season. How to fill the mid-term pitching lineup is important. If Ham Deok-joo and Park Myung-geun return healthy and left-handed Lim Joon-hyung, who will be discharged from Sangmu, show what they expected, the bullpen will also be solid.

Manager Yeom said, “Myung-geun is likely to come up in the second week of the second half, and Deok-ju could come as early as late July or early August,” adding, “Our team has never played 100% this year,” and expected the injured to return in the second half.
