Crisis can be an opportunity.
For the Samsung Lions, adjustments to the starting rotation are inevitable. This is because Albert Suarez, who was in charge of one axis of the mound, was away for a while due to personal circumstances. In addition, Yang Chang-seop, who was the 5th starter, did not give a sense of stability throughout the pitching, and plans to appoint him as a long relief player out of the starting lineup. For now, Jang Pil-joon (35) and Lee Jae-hee (22) will be appointed.
Jang Pil-joon has been preparing as a starting pitcher in the 2nd team. The command tower intended to appoint Jang Pil-joon’s card when a variable occurred. Manager Park Jin-man said, “Jang Pil-joon prepared as a starter at Futures. If a variable arises, he plans to raise it at any time.”
Jang Pil-jun made two appearances in the Futures League. He recorded 4 ⅓ innings, 5 hits, 4 walks, 2 runs and 1 strikeout against the KIA Tigers on the 7th, and 4 hits, 1 home run, 1 walk, 1 run and 2 strikeouts in 3 innings against the NC Dinos on the 15th. 먹튀검증
After completing his military service at Sangmu, Jang Pil-joon, who graduated from Bukil High School, signed a minor league contract with the Los Angeles Angels in 2008 and challenged the American stage. Then he returned to Korea again, and in the 2015 draft, he joined Samsung with the 9th overall pick in the 2nd 1st round.
