Lotte Sutton’s manager talked with pitching coach Bae Young-soo for a long time.
From the 18th, KBO League Lotte and KIA played three consecutive matches at Sajik Baseball Stadium in Busan. Prior to the game, Lotte head coach Sutton visited coach Bae Young-soo and talked about the pitchers. We talked through an interpreter, but the conversation continued for a long time, probably because of the frustration.
Although 20 days have passed since the opening of the season, 메이저사이트Lotte’s starting pitchers are sluggish. Foreign pitchers Strayley and Barnes, who should be responsible for the first and second selections, are sluggish together. Both pitchers are still winless. The two players started in 5 games, but none of them were winless.
Lotte’s ‘Glasses Ace’ Park Se-woong is also sluggish. Last year, he had 3 wins in the month of April, but this season, he has started 3 games since the opening and is recording 1 loss without a win.
In the match against KIA on the 18th, he had a good fight with no runs until the 4th inning, but in the 5th he was shaken for a moment, and after 5 runs, he was beaten without completing the inning.
Han Hyun-hee, who moved to Lotte under an FA contract, is recording 1 win and 1 loss in 2 starts. On April 13, he became the winning pitcher against LG, but allowed 3 runs in 5 innings. He also has a 7.84 earned run average for the season, which is not good.
The only consolation thing is Na Gyun-an, who has three wins as a starter. After transitioning from catcher to pitcher, Kyun-Ahn Na is in his third season as a pitcher. He is showing the most perfect form this season and showing an iron wall mound with an average ERA of 1.45 in 3 starting games.
Due to the sluggishness of foreign pitchers Straley and Barnes, who played the role of a one-two punch last year, and the sluggishness of native starters Park Se-woong and Han Hyun-hee, Lotte, which was called ‘Bomde’, is not communicating the results in April. At the beginning of the season, the team atmosphere should be revived, but it is not.
Manager Sutton had a long conversation with coach Bae Young-soo, who is in charge of the pitchers. He asked several questions about the pitching staff management, and coach Bae Young-soo also conveyed the pitchers’ condition and training details through an interpreter.
Coach Bae Young-soo shook his head during the conversation to show his frustration.
In mid-April, when the temperature is rising in the warm spring sunshine. Lotte’s starting lineup is not stable, so the fans are frustrated, and the coaches are also frustrated.
