Doosan Bears coach Seung-yeop Lee put foreign pitcher Raul Alcantara, who has been underperforming since returning from injury, to the test.

Coach Lee met with reporters at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 12th and announced that Alcantara’s next appearance has been postponed from the Jamsil game against the Hanwha Eagles on the 13th to the Gocheok Kiwoom Heroes game on the 14th.

Director Lee’s intention to produce good results is evident as long as he is given an extra day. On the 13th, Choi Won-jun will pitch in his place.

Alcantara was diagnosed with a right elbow sprain on April 25, underwent a detailed examination in the United States, and returned to the first team on the 26th of last month.

However, in the next 3 games, he performed poorly with 1 loss (no win), 14⅓ innings, 16 hits, 8 walks, 4 strikeouts, and 12 runs.

It is completely different from the 2023 season when he achieved 13 wins, 9 losses, and an average ERA of 2.67 in 31 games.

Coach Lee explained, “Alcantara was originally scheduled to rest for five days and pitch tomorrow, but I decided it would be a good idea to rest one more day and regain his pitch.

He then emphasized, “Now enough time has passed. I believe there is now enough time to restore the status quo.”

Regarding Alcantara’s sluggish performance, he said, “As the number of pitches increased, he lost strength and the ball often flew. I think there is a problem with stamina due to the lack of actual pitches,” but added, “I think he is in perfect condition now.”

Regarding Kwak Bin (5 ⅓ innings, 8 hits, 6 runs), who suffered the loss the previous day, Coach Lee said, “It is natural to lose 7 or 8 times in a season. Yesterday was one of those days.” 토토사이트
