Lotte Giants acting manager Lee Jong-woon talked about Park Se-woong and Na Kyun-an’s future pitching schedule in an interview before the game against Kiwoom Heroes in the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 15th.
Park Se-woong and Na Kyun-an, who are leading Lotte’s starting lineup, were selected as the national baseball team for the Hangzhou Asian Games to be held on the 23rd. The national team plans to convene national players on the 23rd. Park Se-woong has 6 wins, 7 losses, and an average ERA of 3.44 in 24 games (136 innings) this season, and Na Kyun-an has 6 wins, 6 losses, and an average ERA of 3.45 in 21 games (120 innings).
Lotte announced Park Se-woong as the starting pitcher in the Gwangju KIA game on the 14th, but it was canceled due to rain, and the starting pitcher for that day’s game was changed to Charlie Barnes. Acting manager Lee Jong-woon said, “I plan to have Park Se-woong pitch one game and one more game, but we have to look at the situation. “First of all, Park Se-woong will be the starting pitcher tomorrow,” he said.
Na Kyun-an, who sparked controversy by throwing 110 pitches against KT on the 27th of last month, 115 against Samsung on the 6th, and 122 against NC on the 12th, is expected to throw just one more game before joining the Asian Games national team. Coach Lee Jong-woon said, “I plan to let Na Kyun-an pitch just one game and get enough rest. “He is not in a position to overdo it right now, so he scheduled his appearance that way,” he explained.
Before Coach Sutton resigned, Lotte made an all-out effort to advance to the postseason by inserting Barnes and Aaron Wilkerson into the rotation after four days of rest. However, the current ranking remains at 7th place in the league (56 wins, 64 losses). There is a 7-game gap with 5th place SSG (62 wins, 2 draws, 56 losses).
Coach Lee Jong-woon said, “Barnes has a 4-day rotation, but there are rest days during the remaining game schedule, so it seems that the 4-day rotation is no longer possible. “There will be games with five days off in between,” he said, suggesting that Barnes and Wilkerson will now play a normal starting rotation.
