Coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop (55) of “Yeomgalyang” has left spring camp for the first time since taking office as the LG Twins head coach. Manager Yeom cited his pitching ability, especially the ‘completeness of the starting lineup’, as an important point for this camp as well as this season. He expressed his anticipation by mentioning the names of the main characters in the competitive landscape one by one.
The LG Twins team will depart for the United States on the 30th and start spring camp at the San Francisco Giants Baseball Complex in Scottsdale, Arizona from February 1st. Coach Yeom departed through Incheon International Airport Terminal 2 on the afternoon of the 27th, three days earlier than the team.
Manager Yeom, who met with reporters before departure, said, “I thought a lot about baseball while preparing for this camp. I left with a complicated state of mind, such as anxiety,” he said with a laugh.
LG runs again with the goal of winning this season. Manager Yeom cited strengthening the mound and, among other things, stabilizing the starting lineup, as a task to be achieved at this spring camp to win the championship.
Director Yeom said, “First of all, the starting lineup is the most important. Above all, the 3rd to 5th starters to support the 1st and 2nd starters Casey Kelly and Adam Plutko must be stable.” He added, “Basically, Kim Yun-sik will be the 3rd starter and Lee Min-ho will be the 4th starter respectively. However, there is a variable that neither of them have played a full-time season yet.”
LG is called the ‘pitching kingdom’. In particular, Pilseungjo, which leads to Lee Jeong-yong, Jung Woo-young, and Go Woo-seok, boasts the strongest power in the league. However, compared to the bullpen, starting is considered a weakness. Director Yeom knew this better than anyone else.
Director Yeom said, “We plan to prepare up to eight starting pitchers,” and mentioned the main characters in the 5 starting candidates. Director Yeom said, “I haven’t decided on the 5 starters yet,” and said, “I have Kim Yoo-young, Lim Chan-gyu, Kang Hyo-jong, Lee Ji-gang, Kim Hyung-jun, and Kim Dae-hyun in mind. I will make 4-5 people here.” From veterans to newcomers, they are evenly mentioned and included in the competitive structure. 카지노
The KBO League this season could be a variable due to the Hangzhou Asian Games scheduled to be held in September. LG is highly likely to leave key resources such as Ko Woo-seok and Jung Woo-young during this period.
Director Yeom expressed his intention to prepare for this as well. He said, “It is also important to have a long reliever who will be responsible for 2-3 innings when the starting pitcher collapses early. There must be at least two players who can play that role. That way, we can win more games.”
