LG Salvation WAR No. 1 reserve free agent pitcher’s reason for expulsion from the 1st team?
“Fatigue also built up. Determining the level of prevention. The last 30 games are much more important.”
The LG Twins removed left-handed setup man Deok-joo Ham from the first-team entry along with Adam Plutko, who suffered a pelvic bruise, ahead of the match against the Doosan Bears in Jamsil on the 29th. In the case of Ham Deok-joo, there is no special injury. It is a decision to give rest under the judgment that fatigue has accumulated.
LG Twins coach Yeom Kyung-yeop explained, “Ham Deok-joo threw a lot of innings after a long time, so his recovery after pitching was a bit delayed.”
One of those who will receive the most attention in the free agent (FA) market after the season is Ham Deok-joo (28), who has been reborn as a special setup man for LG this year.
In fact, Ham Deok-joo appeared in 57 games this season and recorded 4 wins, 4 saves, 16 holds, and an average ERA of 1.62. Among the relief pitchers in the league, Ham Deok-joo’s WAR (contribution to victory over substitutes) is 2.65, which ranks 15th overall in the pitcher category.
In terms of relief pitchers, Seo Jin-yong (SSG) and Kim Jae-yoon (KT) rank third overall, next to the closers who are posting top-notch performances this year. In LG, he is definitely number one in the team. As such, it is impossible to explain the performance of the bullpen except for the presence of Ham Deok-joo in LG.
That is why it feels like a somewhat surprising decision to simply expunge Ham Deok-joo from the entry for a break.스포츠토토
Coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop said, “It seems that there is fatigue after watching recent games. (Since I threw many innings in a long time), my recovery was delayed. Even if you take a day off and take a day off, recovery is delayed, so I decided that if I give you a vaccination in advance as a preventive measure, I will be able to prepare for more important times and more important games later.”
It is an explanation that the LG coaching staff and coach Yeom felt tired from Ham Deok-ju’s most recent game, and decided to focus their efforts at a more important time.
Director Yeom said, “I think such appearances give some signs, and it is proof that the condition is not 100%. In the end, if you drag it further into this state, you can have damage when you have to fight,” he said. There is a high probability of winning,” he said, expressing his intention to bet on the match with Ham Deok-ju, who returned from a break in the second half of the pennant race, where the final rankings are determined during the Asian Games player hiatus.
