Choi is making good progress in his comeback.

Doosan Bears left-handed pitcher Choi Seung-yong (23) is making good progress in his comeback.

Doosan manager Lee Seung-yeop said before the first game of the doubleheader against the Samsung Lions at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu on Wednesday, “Choi Seung-yong is slowly getting back into shape. He said he has no pain at all. I received a report that he is now up to half-pitching. There is no problem at all.”

Choi was diagnosed with a stress fracture in his elbow earlier this year and began the season on rehab.

Since joining the organization, Choi has split his time between starting and relieving. Last year, he went 3-6 with one save and a 3.97 ERA in 34 games.

Given his strong showing as a starter in the second half of last year, 토토사이트 it seemed likely that he would retain his starting spot this season, but he has been slowly building up to the injury.

He recently threw a half-pitch, and with nothing out of the ordinary, he’s looking at the next step.

“If there is no problem in half-pitching, we will raise his physical condition step by step. Since (Choi) Seung-yi has been resting, I plan to use him as a middle reliever rather than a starter from the end of July if possible. I’m talking to the staff and I think I’ll call him up after July 20. If there are no problems, I think I’ll be able to see him at the end of July.”

Choi’s return will be a big boost for Doosan. This season, Doosan has been utilizing their bullpen to help them through the season. The hot summer months naturally put a physical strain on them.

“I think it’s about three weeks after the All-Star break. (Lee) Byung-heon has pitched a lot, (Choi) Ji-gang has pitched a lot, (Hong) Gun-hee has pitched a lot, (Lee) Yeong-ha has pitched a lot, and (Kim) Kang-ryul is a veteran. “Having more pitchers who can pitch after the sixth inning is a big boost for the team and reduces the chances of being upset a little bit more,” he said. “I think having a solid pitcher behind you will help you win.

However, with the risk of injury, 사설 토토사이트 the team won’t be rushing to call him up. “If there’s something wrong, we’ll take it slow, even if it means delaying the week. We won’t be greedy,” Lee said.
