3 consecutive wins, QS and 4 days break… There is no limit to Jang Won-joon’s resurrection and challenge

Expectations for Jang Won-jun (38, Doosan Bears) are rising day by day. He토토사이트, who has not even met the requirements for a winning pitcher for five years, is now a part of the team’s starting lineup and challenges to pitch twice a week for the first time in the season.

Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop announced Jang Won-joon’s appearance on the 18th prior to the 2023 KBO League regular season away game against the NC Dinos at Changwon NC Park on the 14th.

Earlier, on the 13th, against Changwon NC, Jang won 3 wins in 6 innings, 3 hits, 1 walk, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts, and no runs. It was the first quality start in 1865 days (less than 3 earned runs in 6 or more starting innings).

Not even beyond expectations. It’s more than that. Jang Won-joon, who had not been able to pursue victory for the last time in 2018, started against the Samsung Lions in Jamsil on May 23 and scored 4 runs in 5 innings and became the winning pitcher in 5 years. At that time, there were a lot of conceded points and we won the victory with scoring support, but in the two games after that, we played perfectly well and took the victory. His season earned run average went down to 2.76.

Even when he finished his first appearance, coach Lee expunged two days later. Jang Won-jun, who is the oldest and unfamiliar with the starting rotation, was not appointed as a normal rest day. After a good pitch against the Hanwha Eagles in Jamsil on the 6th, he had 6 days of rest until he started against the NC on the 13th.

But this time I only take 4 days off. The reason is, after all, the lack of selection right now. As Doosan releases Dylan Pile, a foreign pitcher’s seat is vacant. Kim Dong-joo, who was sluggish last week, was eventually canceled and is resting. A replacement foreigner Brandon Waddell was announced, but his first-team debut is possible only before Gocheok Kiwoom Heroes on the 23rd and 25th. Kim Dong-ju is also expected to return to the first team on the 22nd. As two seats were vacated, there was no one to add as a starting pitcher on the 18th. In the end, it was best to trust Jang Won-joon.

Coach Lee said, “It’s the first two times a week, so your body will be tired, but there is no reason not to use a player in good condition. There was a gap in the team’s starting lineup, so Jang Won-joon naturally took a chance, and the results of all three games were good.” The ball is better than before. The two-seam fastball is powerful, so there are a lot of ground balls.”

Regarding the use of two-seam in particular, Lee said, “It is a great decision for a 129-win pitcher to throw away what he had and change to survive. It seems to have yielded results.”
