Moon Dong-joo’s replacement starter → 5 runs in ⅔ innings… ‘ERA 11.57’ Hanwha Lee Tae-yang cancels first-team entry

May 7, 2024 | by

Hanwha Eagles veteran pitcher Lee Tae-yang (34) went down to the second division after a slump.

Hanwha removed pitcher Lee Tae-yang and outfielder Lee Jin-young from the first division entry on the 6th, when there was no KBO league game.

Lee Tae-yang pitched 100 ⅓ innings in 50 games (12 starts) between starters and bullpens last year, recording 3 wins, 3 losses, 2 holds and an ERA of 3.23, showing excellent performance as a yardstick for Hanwha’s pitching staff.

However, Lee Tae-yang, who served as a bullpen pitcher this season, was sluggish with one loss and an ERA of 7.27 in nine games he pitched as a relief pitcher. He was the first starting pitcher of this season against the KIA Tigers on the 4th, but even then, the result was not good.

Lee Tae-yang, who started as an alternative to fill the gap in Moon Dong-joo’s starting rotation, which went down to the second division on the 29th of last month, expected to play an opener, but collapsed with five hits, one home run, one walk and five runs in the ⅔ innings.

Hanwha, where Lee Tae-yang collapsed after not being able to fill one inning, later added seven more pitchers and was completely defeated 2-10. Hanwha, which became 14 wins and 21 losses in the season (0.400 win rate), has fallen to ninth place in a month since it last ranked first (8 wins, 2 losses, 0.800 win rate) on April 4.

Meanwhile, Hanwha will play three consecutive games of inevitable fate with Lotte (11 wins, 1 draw, 22 losses, 0.333) at Sajik from the 7th. Hanwha will face off with “Monster” Ryu Hyun-jin (2-3, 5.21 ERA), who has reached 100 wins in KBO, and Lotte’s “Glasses Ace” Park Se-woong (3-2, 4.03 ERA) as starters. 스포츠토토
