NC Dinos’ starters have never formed a complete team since the opening. Beginning with foreign pitcher Widener from the exhibition game, injured players are taking turns.안전놀이터
When local ace Chang-mo Koo left due to an injury in early May, Seong-yeong Choi, who came in as a substitute starter and filled the vacant position, left due to an orbital fracture after being hit by a ball.
On the 20th, against LG in Changwon, Choi Seong-yeong collapsed after being hit in the left cheekbone by Moon Bo-kyung’s batted ball. He was diagnosed with an orbital fracture after examinations at two hospitals, but fortunately, surgery was not necessary. He will rest for 4 to 6 weeks and enter rehabilitation with natural healing. Director Kang In-kwon said, “It’s fortunate out of misfortune,” sweeping his chest.
[OSEN=Changwon, Reporter Lee Seok-woo] On the 20th, the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League NC Dinos and LG Twins match was held at NC Park in Changwon. NC Dinos Choi Seong-yeong is being taken to the hospital after being hit by LG Twins Moon Bo-kyung’s batted ball in the top of the 3rd inning.
Another member was missing from the starting rotation. Director Kang expected Peddy’s return. After winning his 10th win of the season against SSG on the 9th, Peddie was canceled from the first team entry on the 14th due to right arm forearm pain.
Coach Kang said on the 21st, “Peddy played long toss and ground pitching today. I received a report that there is no such big problem now,” he said. If there is no major problem, I am thinking that Pedi will return in the place where Choi Seong-young is missing.”
The best-case scenario is that Peddie pitches in the bullpen on the 22nd and returns to the first team on the 25th. Peddy is 10-1 with a 1.74 ERA in 12 games. He is first in wins and earned run average. He is regarded as the best pitcher in the league. Peddy’s early return will be a thousand and one thousand horses.
Director Kang said, “I’m thinking of Jeon Min, who is in charge of long in the bullpen, as an alternative starter” in case Peddy’s return is delayed.
NC, which conceived a starting lineup with two foreign pitchers (Peddy and Widener) and Koo Chang-mo, Song Myeong-ki and Shin Min-hyuk, currently has Widener, Lee Yong-jun, Lee Jae-hak and Shin Min-hyuk in the rotation.
