LG Twins coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop emphasized that “selection is the point of this camp” before leaving for the United States.
Director Yeom boarded a plane to the United States via Incheon International Airport on the 27th. The team will leave for Arizona on the 30th, but coach Yeom will head to the US ahead of time.
Coach Yeom said, “I will encourage the players (Ji-Hwan Oh, Woo-Young Jeong, Yoon-Sik Kim, and Hyo-Jong Kang) who left for the starting team (21st) and welcome the camp with local adaptation and planning.”
The LG team will camp in Arizona, USA from the 1st of next month to the 6th of March. Including manager Yeom, 19 coaching staff and 43 players including captain Oh Ji-hwan will participate. The first-team camp consisted of 26 pitchers, 4 catchers, 6 infielders and 7 outfielders.
Before leaving the country, coach Yeom said, “Through the coaching staff, the players were told in advance what they had to do during the camp. 토토사이트 What was done in December last year must be continued at this camp,” he said. Some players fix their form too much just because they failed. that causes failure. He emphasized that he should fill it, not change it.”
“Hope, excitement, and anxiety coexist,” said Director Yeom. “The most important point this year is ‘selection’. I think the most important thing during this camp is how stable the 3rd, 4th, and 5th picks are. First of all, Kim Yun-sik will be the third starter. The 4th pick is Lee Min-ho. The 5th selection has not yet been decided,” he said.
LG entrusts foreign pitchers Kelly and Plutko as the first and second starters. They are proven foreign pitchers. If the rest of the domestic selection resources show a sense of stability, it is evaluated as the team closest to winning. Pil Seung-jo and closer Go Woo-eun are called the strongest team in the league.
Director Yeom said, “We have a bat. However, even when Kelly and Plutko were bad on the mound, he threw 100 or more innings over 5 innings. He throws 100 balls every time he goes out, so he can’t use his strength in the postseason. I have to use only 90% and play (fall baseball), but the 3rd, 4th, and 5th starters can’t support it. That is why 100% of the 1st and 2nd starters are used up,” he pointed out.
As coach Yeom said, selection is the key for LG to challenge for the championship. Manager Yeom said, “This year, we will see how much the 3rd, 4th and 5th starters support the 1st and 2nd starters to see if we can use our strength in the postseason. That’s important,” he repeatedly emphasized, and got on the plane.
