Kim Yu-sung, 2nd team, Kim Dong-ju return Coach Lee Seung-yeop: “We will protect our young bullpen team.”

Doosan starting pitcher Kim Yoo-sung fights back

Professional baseball Doosan Bears right-handed pitcher Kim Dong-ju (22) returned to the first team sooner than expected.

Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop (47) sent Kim Yu-seong (22) down to the second team and registered Kim Dong-ju before the home game against the KIA Tigers held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 9th.

Player registration and cancellation heralds changes in Doosan's starting lineup.

Kim Yoo-seong took the mound as a starter against KIA on the 8th, but was dismissed early after allowing 3 hits, 2 walks, and 2 runs in ⅓ innings.

Kim Yoo-seong, who had the opportunity to pitch for the first team twice in June, came off the mound too early in the game against the LG Twins on the 2nd (5 hits and 3 runs in 3⅔ innings) and the KIA game on the 8th.

Coach Lee said, "Kim Yu-sung's control was greatly shaken in the KIA game. Since he couldn't throw a strike, we had no choice but to change it at least once."

In the end, Kim Yu-seong was notified that he would be sent to the 2nd Army on this day.

On the other hand, Kim Dong-ju, who was scheduled to start the Futures (2nd team) league game on the 11th, was promoted to the 1st team that day.

Manager Lee said, “The bullpen threw a lot this week and we needed a pitcher to throw long innings,” and added, “Once we confirm Kim Dong-joo’s pitch, we will decide who will take the starting spot left vacant by Kim Yu-sung’s departure.”

Kim Dong-ju, who went back and forth between selection and relief this year, was downgraded to the second team on the 17th of last month.

Kim Dong-ju, who returned to the first team after 23 days, will wait in the bullpen on the 9th and take the test as a starting pitcher candidate.

Another selection candidate, Kim Min-gyu, made his first live pitching today after undergoing a short rehabilitation due to shoulder pain. He is scheduled to appear in the Futures League game on the 12th, but it is expected that it will take time for him to return to the first team.

Doosan is operating its 1st to 4th starters normally, including Raul Alcantara, Brand Waddell, Kwak Bin, and Choi Jun-ho.

However, there is still no pitcher who has clearly secured the 5th starting position.

The absence of the 5th starter can cause the bullpen to be overloaded.

Coach Lee said, "Especially this week, we had a lot of close games. I'm worried that our players will get tired," and "It's a concern for us that the bullpen, including Kim Taek-yeon, Choi Ji-gang, and Lee Byung-hun, who are playing full-time for the first team for the first time, played many innings. “To protect these gems, we plan to give young pitchers adequate rest before they get tired,” he said.
