After Heo Yun-dong and Yang Chang-seop, Jang Pil-jun also sortie… ‘Practical mode’ Samsung, eager to find the starting puzzle

The Samsung Lions, who are in the middle of spring camp, have entered the actual mode. The search for the missing selection puzzle also began in earnest.

Starting with a practice game against the Nippon Ham Fighters of the Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB) on the 9th, Samsung has been practicing and메이저놀이터 training at the same time. Since training started on February 1st, progress is quite fast, but the team, which has built up their bodies well through last year’s finish camp and inactive period, is digesting the schedule without much difficulty.

One of the tasks that Samsung needs to solve during this camp is ‘Finding the 5 starters’. The foreign one-two punch is reassuring. David Buchanan, who has just entered his 4th year in the KBO League, and Albert Suarez, who proved his competitiveness last year, will be the first and second starters.

The third selection is likely to be Won Tae-in, the native ace. Won Tae-in, who recently succeeded in winning 10 games for two consecutive years, moved to Miami, USA during his inactive period to conduct his personal training. He trained with active major leaguers such as Sandy Alcantara (Miami Marlins) and Arold Dis Chapman (Kansas City Royals) and acquired know-how he had never experienced before.

Starting with the 4th selection, Samsung is worried. There are no reliable resources that can be trusted, so they have to compete in the spring camp.

It is ideal for veteran Baek Jung-hyun, who has consistently played as a starter, to be in charge of the 4th starter. Last year, he was sluggish with 4 wins and 13 losses and an average ERA of 5.27, including 13 consecutive losses, but succeeded in rebounding with 4 wins and 1 loss and an average ERA of 3.13 in the six games he started in September. If you regain the form of 2021, when you posted 14 wins (5 losses), you can greatly ease your worries about Samsung selection this year.

The 5th selection is Muju Gongsan. Literally, it is ‘infinite competition’. Yang Chang-seop, Heo Yun-dong, Hwang Dong-jae, and Jang Pil-joon, who have experience as a starter, are candidates. The same goes for Choi Chae-heung, who will be discharged in June.

First of all, Heo Yun-dong and Yang Chang-seop cut off the start. On the 9th, they pitched side by side against Nippon Ham. Heo Yun-dong, who started as a starter, recorded 3 hits (1 home run), 1 walk and 2 runs in 2 innings. Rather than the result, it is more meaningful that he digested the first match without difficulty.

On the 11th and 12th, Samsung will play a practice match against Chunichi Dragons. On the 11th, Won Tae-in started as a starter, and on the 12th, ‘5th selection candidate’ Jang Pil-jun started as a starter. As such, Samsung plans to start looking for the right person by evenly appointing candidates for the remaining matches.
