‘5G ERA 0.28’ Ace, a foreigner, is taking a break due to finger inflammation
Kirk McCarty, a foreign pitcher for the SSG Landers, is taking a break from one rotation due to finger inflammation.
Head coach Kim Won-hyung said, “Mccarty got an inflamed finger. He had pus between his nails, so he inevitably skipped an hour.” Director Kim said, “I removed the inflammation on Monday’s day off. I don’t think it will be easy to throw this week,” he said.
McCarty struggled with 8 runs in 3⅓ innings in his first appearance in the regular season against Munhak KIA, but after that, he quickly adapted to the Korean mound by recording quality starts in 5 games in a row. McCarty recorded 3 runs (1 earned run) in 32⅔ innings in 5 games and played the role of an outside ace with an average ERA of 0.28.
In the absence of McCarty, Lee Kun-wook is expected to pitch as a substitute starter. As there is no appearance in the first team this season, it is expected to serve as an opener. Coach Won-hyung Kim said, “I thought about pulling the rotation of the existing players one day at a time, but (Oh) Won-seok was able to throw only 85 pitches in the last game, but (Park) Jong-hoon exceeded 100 pitches, so I thought it would be difficult to rest for 4 days and pitch. We will start as substitutes, and the other players will start normally.”메이저사이트
