In the end, we have no choice but to wait until Tuesday the 19th.
It was an important game that could determine whether or not to return to the first team and further advance to the Hangzhou Asian Games. As the date was postponed, the already insufficient time became tighter.
Koo Chang-mo, who successfully completed three rounds of bullpen pitching and 30-pitch live pitching, was scheduled to be called up to the first team next week after appearing in the Futures League on the 16th.
NC manager Kang In-kwon shared the news of live pitching on the 13th and said, 메이저사이트 “If there are no inconveniences or problems with bullpen pitching on Saturday, we would like to move him up to the first-team bullpen next week. We talked after pitching and he said it was good.”
The call-up to the bullpen is a kind of showcase with the Asian Games in mind. As it takes more time to prepare as a starter, the goal is to quickly promote him to the first team through the bullpen and show him a healthy appearance.
Koo Chang-mo is scheduled to throw about 30 pitches over two innings in the Futures League game on the 19th. The national team convocation date is the 23rd.
The KBO Strengthening Committee plans to finalize the list of national team players who will travel to Hangzhou before convening. The vacancy of Kiwoom Lee Jeong-hoo, who was unable to participate in the tournament due to injury, is expected to be filled by other players. It will also be decided whether Koo Chang-mo and Jang Hyun-seok will ultimately board.
Koo Chang-mo is running out of time to show off in official games. Depending on the situation, it is impossible to rule out the possibility that the actual appearance in the Futures League will be the final rehearsal.
