Third baseman Heo Gyeong-min’s lake performance stood out.

Doosan is looking for two starting pitchers to succeed Raul Alcantara, Choi Won-jun, and Kwak Bin in this demonstration game. Doosan’s initial plan was to find a fifth starter, but new foreign pitcher Dylan Pyle suffered a bone bruise from a batted ball during the Australian spring camp and was forced to fill the two starting positions. Dylan needs stability until mid-April.
Director Lee Seung-yeop puts Park Shin-ji, Choi Seung-yong, and Kim Dong-ju into the candidate pool and is conducting a survival audition in which only one person is eliminated. However, along with Kim Dong-ju with an average ERA of 13.50 in the demonstration game, even Park Shin-ji showed a four-run search with exactly one week left before the opening, and the coach’s worries deepened.
Choi Seung-yong, who has an average ERA of 3.09 in 3 exhibition games, is likely to enter the rotation, and coach Lee will continue to worry about the pitcher who will occupy one spot for the remaining week.
