LG coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop “Im Chan-gyu is the 3rd starter… I will win at least 13”

 “I have decided. Lim Chan-gyu is the 3rd starter.”

LG Twins Lim Chan-kyu captured the heart of the commander. LG coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop nailed Lim Chan-gyu, who started the season with a long relief, as the third starter.

Coach Yeom nailed it as “Lim Chan-gyu is the 3rd starter” ahead of the 2023 Shinhan Bank Sol KBO League SSG Landers match held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 24th.

Coach Yeom praised Lim Chan-gyu, saying, “Chan-gyu is almost in a stable position. He seems to have settled down with his pitches and mindset. He doesn’t just try to throw hard, but the game management itself has changed.”

He continued, “I told Chan-gyu, ‘Think about what your strengths are from the start.’ He said that he had to erase velocity from his mind. It seems to have fallen,” he said.

After two months of opening, the status changed.

Even when preparing for this season, Lim Chan-gyu was in charge of long relief. It is the role of a relief pitcher who can take care of multiple innings when the starting pitcher collapses early.

After the opening ‘as planned’, he went out as a relief pitcher in 4 games. He pitched 8 innings in 4 games, from KT Wiz on the 2nd of last month to Lotte Giants on the 11th, and recorded an earned run average of 5.63.

The opportunity came sooner than he expected.

As starting pitcher Lee Min-ho left due to injury, Lim Chan-gyu was given the starting pitcher as a substitute.

On the 16th of last month, when he stood on the mound for the first start of the season, he scored 1 run in 3⅓ innings against the Doosan Bears. Since then, he has been on the mound only as a starter.

In the previous day (23rd) against SSG, he overpowered the opponent’s lineup with 6 innings, 3 hits (1 home run), 1 walk, 3 strikeouts and 1 run.

As a starter this year, his performance in six games was 4 wins, 0 losses, and an average ERA of 1.47.

The commanding tower has higher expectations for Lim Chan-gyu, who has been guaranteed a starter spot with a brilliant pitch. Manager Yeom expressed solid trust in Lim Chan-gyu, saying, “I think we will win over 10. We will win at least 13.”메이저사이트

Lim Chan-gyu, who entered the professional league in 2011, was originally able to exercise his free agent (FA) qualifications after last season. However, as his sluggishness last season, such as 6 wins and 11 losses and an average ERA of 5.04, he did not apply for free agency and chose a second try.

For Lim Chan-kyu, who can exercise his FA rights again after this season, the role of ‘third starting’ can be a greater motivation.
