The LG Twins sent 43 players to this Arizona camp, and 26 of them, more than 60%, are pitchers.
Manager Yeom plans to develop the 3rd, 4th, and 5th starters and create long relief at this camp. LG has a strong foreign one-two punch of Casey Kelly, who took first place with 16 wins last year, and Adam Plutko, who took second place with 15 wins. On the other hand, the domestic selection team was weak. Kim Yun-shik led the team in ace mode in the second half of last year, and Lee Min-ho won 12 wins and improved further, but it was not at the level of being able to face the domestic ace of other teams. This season, they should grow further and reach a level where they can lead the LG starters. 5 Selection is a competition. Kim Yoo-young, who came as a reward player for Yoo Kang-nam, veteran Lim Chan-gyu, and Kim Young-joon, Lee Ji-gang, and Kang Hyo-jong, who steadily accumulated selection lessons in the 2nd division last year, are candidates for the 5th selection. Director Yeom said, “Basically, we plan to prepare for the 6th start and then make the 7th and 8th starts.” 먹튀검증
The reason why we are paying more attention to the domestic starting lineup is to ensure that the one-two punch ability continues into the postseason. Director Yeom said, “If you look at last season, Kelly and Plutko threw more than 5 innings in almost every game. Even if they couldn’t throw 5 innings, there were a lot of them who made up to 100 pitches.” Bonnie, there was a lot of bullpen consumption at this time, so the one-two punch had to take responsibility for many innings to reduce the bullpen consumption.”
Next, coach Yeom said, “There was a break period because we used up 100% of our strength during the regular season, but we didn’t have enough time to recover again.” “We need to be able to perform well in the season. To do that, we need to help domestic starters digest a lot of innings and reduce the consumption of the bullpen so that even when one-two punches are thrown, the bullpen can be put in.”
He also emphasized the need for a long relief that can prevent 2-3 innings when the selection collapses. Manager Yeom said, “Our team’s batting line is good. Even if the starting lineup collapses, if the long relief blocks it, it has the power to turn it over in the second half.” Among the 26 pitchers, will the starting lineup and long relief that coach Yeom envisioned emerge? This is why the Arizona camp is attracting attention.
