Doosan’s bullpen is shaking. Although it is said to be the beginning of the season, the Doosan bullpen allowed 35 runs (31 earned runs) in 53.1 innings until the 19th. With an ERA of 5.23, it is the second highest among 10 clubs. It is the same ranking as last year’s Doosan bullpen ERA, which fell to ninth place in the season.
Initially, Doosan had more concerns about selection. As foreign pitcher Dylan Pyle (registered name Dylan) left due to an injury before the season, a hole was created. Young pitchers Kim Dong-ju (21) and Choi Seung-yong (22), who were planning to compete for the 5th starter spot, had to be put into the starting rotation. Concerns arose because neither of them had much selection experience.
So far, the pattern has been reversed. Kim Dong-ju is active with an average ERA of 1.80 in 15 innings in three starts. Choi Seung-yong was also sluggish in the opening game, but pitched well in the following two games. Thanks to the two people holding up well in the lower selection, Doosan’s starting rotation is running stably. With an ERA of 3.38, it is next to NC (2.71) and Kiwoom (3.30).
Rather, the bullpen is the problem. The lower stone was removed and the upper stone was well blocked, but the lower stone is shaking. Other than Jeong Cheol-won, there is no other pitcher he can trust and send out yet. Pil Seung-jo and Park Chi-guk, who were showing ups and downs, failed to catch an out count against Hanwha on the 19th and gave up three runs. Kim Myung-shin, who faithfully played the role of a link between selection and finishing last year, also has a bad start. Given the circumstances, the burden on Jeong Cheol-won is bound to be great. Now he has played 15 games and he has already pitched 11.1 innings. Statistical WAR (contribution to victory over substitute players) is 0.74, ranking first among team pitchers. It is said that the performance of one Jeong Cheol-won in the bullpen stood out that much, but it is not a good sign when viewed from the team as a whole.
If Dylan returns to his expected form,토토사이트 the relief team will be able to breathe. One of Kim Dong-joo and Choi Seung-yong can go down to the bullpen to share the burden on Jeong Cheol-won. It remains to be seen who will go down to the bullpen after Dylan returns. Choi Seung-yong is the only left-handed starting resource in the team. Kim Dong-ju has a very good pace at the beginning of the season. Doosan expects that no matter which of the two goes down to the bullpen, they will be able to stably digest multi-innings.
Dylan will start a practice game against Yeoncheon Miracle on the afternoon of the 20th. After throwing around 30, he’ll make about two starts in the Futures League next week. If everything goes smoothly, you can enter the starting rotation early next month.
