KIA Tigers Lee Ui-ri was dismissed early due to a finger problem.
On the 9th, he started in the second game of the doubleheader against the LG Twins held at Gwangju-Kia Champions Field and finished pitching with one out in the fifth inning. His performance on this day was 4⅓ innings, 3 hits, 5 walks, strikeouts, and 4 runs (3 earned). The team won big, 12-7, but failed to achieve the victory requirements and failed to win 11 games.안전놀이터
I was out of control from the first inning. Three walks were allowed to Hong Chang-gi, Kim Hyun-soo, and Moon Bo-kyung. On 1st and 3 with one out, he was hit by Austin, gave up a walk, loaded the bases, and gave up another run with an infield ground ball.
In the second inning, Kim Ki-hyun and Jeong Joo-hyun got consecutive hits, and Hong Chang-gi walked, putting the bases loaded again. He contributed one run with his infield ground ball and another run with his own throwing error. From the 3rd inning, he regained control and held on to the 4th inning without allowing a run.
However, in the top of the 5th inning, he struck out Kim Hyun-soo on a missed swing and left the mound. Coach Seo Jae-eung and trainer came up to the mound, took a look, and decided on a steel plate. This is because the calluses on the middle finger of my left hand came off. Pitching has become difficult.
Lee Ui-ri has a finger issue. This is a unique constitution in which the entire middle finger joint peels off when a blister occurs. There are also cases where a starting pitcher got a blister and had to cancel it. Even in spring training, his pitching was halted for an extended period of time due to blisters.
So the calluses on the middle finger, which are absolutely necessary, have come off. Although it is not a major injury, whether or not he will pitch in the next game is also a question. It appears that he will first decide whether to pitch or not after monitoring the condition of his fingers.
The disappointing part is that Lee Ui-ri returned after 10 days of recharge time due to shoulder pain, but was unable to play the innings properly. He pitched against SSG on the 3rd, but lasted only 3 innings, and that day he also fell short of 5 innings.
The next appearance is the Gwangju game against Doosan on the 15th. After today’s appearance, he is scheduled to join the national team for the Hangzhou Asian Games on the 22nd. Attention is being paid to whether he will resign from his remaining one game appearance and board the Taegeukho.
