If Ko Woo-suk goes to ML, LG’s finish… Why did Yeom Gal-ryang choose a career-high one-save rookie as the finish

The only major power leak is expected to be Ko Woo-seok’s entry into the Major League. Ko Woo-seok is challenging the big leagues by posting. St. Louis, which needs to strengthen its bullpen pitcher, met with Ko Woo-seok’s agent. SB Nation’s New York Yankees community insisted that the Yankees should recruit Ko Woo-seok. The media said, “There are rumors that he will sign with St. Louis, but he is also reportedly negotiating with several American League teams, including Boston. Yankees should move, too.”

LG internally expects Ko Woo-suk to succeed in entering the Major League after being offered a satisfactory contract. If Ko Woo-suk advances to the Major League, he is preparing for the finish and bullpen operation plan.

LG strengthened its bullpen depth this season, and the increase in several must-win groups was a big advantage. Ham Deok-ju, who made a comeback from injury, and newcomers Yoo Young-chan, Baek Seung-hyun, and Park Myung-geun have grown into a must-win group.

LG manager Yeom Kyung-yeop has already decided to finish his next job in preparation for Ko’s absence. Yeom said, “If Ko Woo-suk advances to the Major League, next year’s finish will be Yoo Young-chan.” 안전한 파워볼사이트

“Baek Seung-hyun has a burden of consecutive throws. Park Myung-geun has a deviation in his performance against left and right hitters. Yoo Young-chan can also throw consecutive throws, and he is preparing Yoo Young-chan to finish,” he added.

Yoo Young-chan has a 150-km fastball, crystal ball slider, and guts. He also has good performance against left-handed hitters. Side arm Jung Woo-young, veteran Kim Jin-sung, and Ham Deok-ju, who will likely sign FA contracts with LG, will play the role of setup man in the closing stages depending on situations.

Yoo Young-chan was drafted by LG in the fifth round of the second draft in 2020. After graduating from Konkuk University, Yoo immediately completed his mandatory military service as a social service worker after playing in the Futures League in 2020. After returning to the team last year, he recorded 12 games with one loss and three holds with an ERA of 4.50 in the second division.

Yoo Young-chan made his debut in the first division this year. He allowed no run in one inning in the opening game against KT on April 1. He pitched in a chasing group at the bullpen session to gain more experience, and since June, he has been deployed in a must-win situation. He pitched in 67 games and recorded six wins, three losses, one save, 12 holds and an earned run average of 3.44. He pitched 68 innings with 40 walks and 55 strikeouts. His earned run average was 3.75 in the first half and 3.09 in the second half.

After a successful first season in the Korean Series, Yoo Young-chan pitched brilliantly in the Korean Series. He pitched in three games and displayed stellar performance with a one-hold ERA of 1.50. He pitched six innings and allowed three hits, six strikeouts and one run. He gave up two strikeouts in the second ⅓ of Game 2, one hit, one walk, two strikeouts in the second inning of Game 3, and two strikeouts in the first ⅔ of Game 5, giving up two hits and two strikeouts in the first ⅔ of Game 5.

After starter Choi Won-tae gave up one out and four runs in a shocking first inning in Game 2, LG sent in all bullpen pitchers. Yoo Young-chan took the mound in the top of the fifth inning with two outs and runners on the first and second bases when his team was losing 1-4, and struck out a strikeout. He pitched perfectly through the sixth and seventh innings to create an atmosphere for pursuit.

In Game 3, Yoo took the mound in the sixth inning when LG turned the game around 5-4, and managed to block two innings without allowing a run. In Game 5, Yoo took the mound as the second pitcher following starter Kelly in the sixth inning when his team was leading 5-1, and ended the game with three strikeouts, strikeouts and groundouts in the sixth inning. After allowing a leadoff hit in the seventh inning, Yoo allowed a wild pitch with two outs and a runner on the third base.

Manager Yeom Kyung-yeop pledged that if he wins ahead of the Korean Series, he will award prize money (10 million won) to one player in addition to the MVP of the Korean Series. Oh Ji-hwan won the MVP of the Korean Series. Yeom decided to give the prize money to catcher Park Dong-won and bullpen pitcher Yoo Young-chan, who had a come-from-behind winning home run in Game 2 and a come-from-behind home run in Game 3. Originally, he wanted to give 5 million won each to Park Dong-won and Yoo Young-chan, but decided to give 10 million won to both players. Yoo Young-chan, who became a must-win member of the bullpen in his first season in the first division, will take charge of finishing touches in his second year.
