Five ‘lowest’ KT, Bae Jung-dae, and Kim Min-hyuk are eliminated from the first team

The KBO revealed the change in the entry of the first team on Tuesday afternoon. Twelve players from the five teams were removed from the first team entry.

KT has excluded Bae Jung-dae, Kim Min-hyuk, Song Min-seop (fielders), Kim Min-seong, and Moon Yong-ik (pitchers) from the entry list of the first team. Bae Jung-dae and Kim Min-hyuk, who have been tablesetters since the opening game, have both left due to injury.

Bae has been sluggish in recent six games with three hits from 28 times at bat (batting average of .17 percent). He suffered a fractured foot after being hit by a foul ball at a game against LG on Tuesday. Kim Min-hyuk played an active role as he recorded seven hits from 14 times at bat and a batting average of .500 in six games last week, but was replaced due to pain in his right shoulder during the game against LG on Tuesday.

Kim Min took the mound as a starter against LG on the 7th and was sluggish with six runs in one inning, while Moon Yong-ik was also hit with five hits and three outs and eight runs in one inning.

Kiwoom, which has achieved a seven-game winning streak, also excluded rookie pitcher Kim Yeon-joo and outfielder Park Chan-hyuk from its entry into the primary league. LG sent pitcher Woo Kang-hoon, who was acquired in a trade with Lotte, to the secondary league. Doosan removed pitchers Park Shin-ji and Choi Jong-in from its entry into the primary league.

Hanwha sent pitcher Kim Ki-joong and infielder Jung Eun-won to the second division. Rookie Hwang Joon-seo remained in the first division entry. He is expected to be used as a bullpen pitcher.

“After Kim Min-woo throws the ball and checks his body, I will decide whether to use Hwang in the bullpen or go down to the second division for a starting class. I will decide after today’s game,” Choi Won-ho said.

Hwang Joon-seo is expected to help in the bullpen for the time being as Kim Min-woo pitched well with seven strikeouts and three runs in seven innings.
