Won Tae-in’s current status in the rain…”My ankle is fine, but I need to watch my hand”

Samsung Lions pitcher Won Tae-in, 23, could be making his final start before the Asian Games after a gutsy performance in the rain.

On Thursday, Won pitched a quality start against the KT Wiz at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu, South Korea, giving up four runs (three earned) on six hits (one home run), two walks and six strikeouts in 101 pitches over six innings to lead his team to a 10-4 victory.

Once again, Won pitched in the rain. Won has been sensitive to rain interruptions in the past. In his previous two starts (Aug. 20 against KIA and Sept. 2 against NC), he was called out early due to rain. Won had a history of injuries in the past, so he was cautious. In the previous game, Won stayed on the mound in the rain and pitched his 17th quality start, the most in a single season.

However, it’s important to keep an eye on Won’s physical condition. He pitched through a sudden pain in his right thumb in the previous game, and he also twisted his ankle while handling Jang Jun-won’s surprise bunt with runners on first and third in the second inning. He is scheduled to make his first start for Samsung Electronics in Daegu on May 21 and will be called up to the national team for the Hangzhou Asian Games on May 23. However, it remains to be seen if the finger and ankle injuries will prevent him from making his final appearance before the Asian Games.

Ahead of the game against the NC Dinos at Changwon NC Park on the 15th, manager Park Jin-man said, “Won Tae-in is better than yesterday. I think we should check him while playing catch tomorrow (the 16th).” “His ankle is fine, but his finger is cautious. He didn’t sprain his finger, but he had some problems. I’ll have to catch the ball tomorrow and check it for sure.”먹튀검증

Still, Park was satisfied that Won Tae-in did his part and came down. “He’s a competitive player and he’s greedy. He’s a player who can grow up,” Park explained.

Samsung’s starting pitcher will be ace Buchanan. Kim Hyun-jun (center field), Kim Sung-yoon (right field), Koo Ja-uk (left field), Kang Min-ho (catcher), Pirela (designated hitter), Ryu Ji-hyuk (third base), Lee Jae-hyun (shortstop), Yoon Jung-bin (first base), and Kim Ho-jae (second base) are the starting lineup.
