‘1st place and 4.5G car’ KT, rotation adjustment…Quevas-Benjamin-Ko Young-pyo sortie against LG

KT Wiz, who had to adjust the rotation due to the cancellation of the rain, will send out foreign one-two punches and even native aces as starters against the ‘league leader’ LG Twins.

KT coach Lee Kang-cheol said, ahead of the 13th game of the season against the Samsung Lions in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Suwon KT Wiz Park on the 31st, “I thought a lot the day before (30th). It’s a bit burdensome to write on Tuesday (September 5) and Sunday (September 10),” he explained the reason for adjusting the starting rotation.

In particular, after the Samsung match on the 31st and the Gocheok Kiwoom Heroes match on September 1-3, KT has to play three consecutive matches against the LG Twins in Suwon from September 5th. On the weekend, KT is waiting for three consecutive home games against SSG Landers. Matches with top-tier teams may be an opportunity for KT to leap to a higher place, but on the other hand, it is also a burdensome schedule. In addition, KT had to consider the fact that if the rotation was not changed, ‘substitute selection’ Min Kim would have to come on the mound in the match against LG on the 5th and against SSG on the 10th.

In the end, KT decided to entrust the mound twice a week to the most reliable ‘ace’ William Cuevas. Naturally, Cuevas is taking a break without a pitching schedule this week. Coach Lee Kang-cheol said, “I came (in June) and didn’t take a break and continued to rotate, but if I want to go out (as usual), I have to start on Sunday (3rd). I think it is. I thought it would be right for Cuevas to enter the 5th and 10th because the rotation was planned in case there was no rain or the remaining schedule.”

As a result, KT operated the starting lineup in the order of Cuevas-Wes Benjamin-Ko Young-pyo in three consecutive matches against LG on the 5th and 7th. In fact, all the pitchers who are in the best condition in the starting lineup are all sortie against LG.메이저사이트

However, director Lee Kang-cheol drew a line about ‘target selection’. Coach Lee said, “I’ve been thinking about it for a long time. Is it inevitable that anyone can see it? I’m telling you in advance because I hope there won’t be any misunderstandings.” I thought it was right to go in, so I organized it like that.”

Then, “If Koh Young-pyo is also sent back, the first game on the remaining game schedule will be against SSG (Incheon on the 12th). At that time, if the condition is good and it is okay, it may go on the 4th,” he said. I thought about it, but I try not to make an irrational number.” I said don’t overdo it, so I went as it should,” he said.
