‘Lee Seung-yeop-ho’ faced another major crisis.

The All-Star Game was held last July. Yang Eui-ji (Doosan Bears) pledged to “more business trips” in the second half.

Yang Eui-ji, who obtained the second FA qualification after the end of last season, signed a 4+2 year contract with Doosan for a total of 15.2 billion won. Yang Eui-ji, who joined Doosan in 2006 and obtained his first FA qualification after the end of the 2018 season, returned to Doosan with a change in five years.

Last year, Doosan finished the season in 9th place, the lowest ranking since its foundation, and parted ways with coach Kim Tae-hyung, who led the team for 8 years, and appointed new coach Lee Seung-yeop.

Yang Eui-ji was considered an important key to “rebuilding the dynasty,” played as a batter who could hit 20 home runs in the batting line, and was the right person to help the pitcher grow while wearing a catcher mask.

In the first half, Yang Eui-ji fully lived up to expectations. He showed off his robustness by recording 3.3 runs, 5 runs, and 8 home runs in 75 games. As familiar as he is, he has excellent communication with pitchers.

As it is a big part of the team composition, Lee Eui-ji said, “I pray that Yang Eui-ji is not sick.” Regarding this story, Yang Eui-ji said, “In the second half, I will work harder without getting sick. I will try to wear more catcher masks.”

August, which contains the earnest desire of the command tower and the strong will of the main catcher, began to be “nightmare month,” but Yang Eui-ji showed symptoms of tonsillitis from the 4th, coughing and even having some pain in his side. As the uncomfortable feeling continued, I had a hospital checkup on the 7th and heard an abnormal opinion. A Doosan official said, “There was an abnormality in the side muscles complaining of discomfort.” First of all, the entry was not canceled immediately on the 7th, but a break was inevitable after discussions with the coaches.

With a busy road to go, it became the biggest negative factor for Doosan. Doosan has won 11 consecutive games from the end of the first half to the beginning of the second half, but has recently weakened, recording 3 wins and 7 losses in the last 10 games. The third-place ranking remained in fifth place with 47 wins, 1 draw, and 44 losses until seventh, while the third-place NC Dinos (48 wins, 1 draw, 43 losses) and fourth-place KT (49 wins, 2 draws, 44 losses) are one game apart from the sixth-place KIA Tigers (44 wins, 2 draws, 43 losses). If we don’t find a rebound atmosphere, we could be at a disadvantage in the fifth-place fight.

First of all, the activity of the resource who is acting as a backup catcher has become desperate. Currently, Jang Seung-hyun and Park Yoo-yeon are registered as catchers in Doosan’s first team entry. In the Futures League, there is Ahn Seung-han, who showed a good performance last year. Yoon Jun-ho, who made his name known as the catcher of the variety show ‘Strongest Baseball’, is also preparing.

In the first half of the year, due to the injury of foreign pitcher Dylan Pyle, Doosan started to ‘endure’.
