“I’ve never seen anything like this before. I don’t know what to do.”
Doosan Bears bullpen Kim Myung-shin (30) leaves for Seoul before the start of the Pohang Samsung Lions game on Saturday. Doosan manager Lee Seung-yeop ordered the rest. During Doosan’s recent four-game winning streak, Kim appeared in all four games and threw 91 pitches in six innings of work. This has helped Doosan climb from sixth place to sole possession of third place. In a way, it was a reward vacation for Lee, who has struggled the most 꽁머니사이트.
“During the game, Kim Myung-shin and Lee Young-ha rested, and if the game goes to extra innings, Lee Young-ha can go out, but Kim Myung-shin is resting. Kim Myung-shin will go to Seoul as soon as he finishes his conditioning training.”
This was a last-ditch effort to find Kim Myung-shin. While it’s important for the team to win, he’s also wary of overdoing it and missing more games.
“If there’s an emergency, they might look for him, so we’re trying to keep him out of sight. The idea is to rest. If he gets a good night’s rest, I think the fatigue will go away.”
While it’s common for starters to travel early without watching their last game on the road, it’s unusual for bullpen pitchers.
“They told me to go and get a good night’s rest, but it’s the first time I’ve done this, so I don’t know what to do. Honestly, it’s uncomfortable. I’ve never been treated like this before,” he said with a wry smile.
When asked about his role in helping Doosan climb to third place, Kim Myung-shin said, “Even if another player went out, I would have stopped it. I wasn’t in much better shape. I did the same thing and got lucky. I don’t know how long it will last,” he said, adding that he was grateful for the support and vowed to come back recharged.
He’s in good shape. “I don’t know how long it will last,” Kim said. I don’t have any pain right now. Honestly, my arm feels heavy when I throw. I’m throwing even if I can’t recover. But it’s okay because everyone does it,” he said, adding that he hopes to improve his condition in time for a three-game weekend series against the Kiwoom Heroes in Jamsil on the 7th.
