NC Dinos left-handed pitcher Koo Chang-mo (27)소닉카지노 shook off an injury and returned to the first team on the 20th. On this day, when we met after the Jamsil Doosan Bears game was postponed due to rain, he started by saying, “I felt sorry for the team.”
Koo Chang-mo suffered from poor health, including being placed on the injured list twice this season. In particular, in the game against the LG Twins in Jamsil on June 2, after being replaced with only one out, he was diagnosed with a stress fracture of the ulna in his left arm and had to sit out for 109 days. He only made 9 first-team appearances (1 win, 3 losses, ERA 3.26). He was also named in the final entry of the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games national team, but was in a position where he could not just smile because he could not be sure of his physical condition.
However, thanks to his steady rehabilitation without overexerting himself, doubts about his physical condition were somewhat erased. On the 19th, which was his first actual appearance since his injury, he started against the 2nd team Iksan KT Wiz and recorded 1 hit, 4 walks, 2 strikeouts, and no runs in 2 innings, and his highest fastball velocity was 145 km. Koo Chang-mo said, “It was a satisfactory pitch without any major problems in terms of practical feel,” and “The velocity was better than I expected, and there were no major problems with my body condition other than my muscles being strained.”
The NC starting lineup was momentarily shaken by Koo Chang-mo’s departure. I also had to prove that I was healthy to join the national team. The resulting impatience must have made the rehabilitation period seem very long. He said, “As the injury continued, I felt sorry for the team. I wanted to return quickly, but the hospital said, ‘I need a period of stability,’ so I tried to protect myself as much as possible. “Fortunately, after hearing that he was okay, I prepared as much as possible without overdoing it so that he could quickly join the team,” he explained.
NC coach Kang In-kwon expressed his plan, saying, “We will hire Koo Chang-mo as a bullpen first.” Koo Chang-mo said, “First of all, I want to throw for the team,” and added, “I will prepare as much as possible for any situation. “I am ready for any position,” he emphasized.
