Samsung Lions Kim Tae-gun was called up in 13 days.
Kim Tae-goon joined the first team ahead of the season’s first match against KT held at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on the 28th.
Kim Tae-gun, who was hospitalized on the 15th with symptoms of acute hepatitis, was discharged on the 22nd and focused on recovering his condition. With a quick recovery, he accelerated his return to the first team by wielding 5 hits (0.714) in 7 at-bats in 3 futures league games against NC Dinos on the 26th and 27th.
Samsung coach Park Jin-man explained, “I called him quickly because he is in good shape.”
On this day, young catcher Lee Byung-hunㅋㅋㅋ벳 will play as a starter and work with Albert Suarez, who is returning after 13 days. Kang Min-ho starts as the designated hitter.
Kim Tae-gun, who was discharged after five days, laughed, saying, “This has never happened before in my life. Normally, I was hospitalized for about 10 days, but my levels dropped quickly and I was able to leave the hospital early.”
Samsung’s Energizer injects energy into the dugout on and off the field. He is a player with clutch ability, so he is expected to start as a pinch hitter at the crucial moment in the second half. It is hoped that Lee Won-seok will be a great help to the missing batting line.
