Doosan’s Lee Yoo-chan eventually goes to Futures ···Will Lee Yoo-chan be able to respond to the unwavering belief of the head coach

Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop’s baseball is, so to speak, “Baseball of faith.” A player who has once scored does not gain trust for a long time. Encourage and give opportunities to find their skills.

Infielder Lee Yoo-chan (25) is an example. Even when Lee Yoo-chan showed anxiety in defense, which is his strength, coach Lee expected to show his skills soon.

Lee Yoo-chan, who received the coach’s unwavering trust, was eventually excluded from the first division. This is the first entry cancellation of this season. Doosan sent Lee Yoo-chan down to the Futures League on the 10th and raised another infield prospect Ahn Jae-seok (21). 스포츠토토

On the day when the Jamsil Samsung match was canceled due to rain, coach Lee met with reporters and expressed regret, saying, “I can’t help but think about the team,” adding, “Lee Yoo-chan’s own skills were not coming out.”

Coach Lee appointed Lee Yoo-chan as the starting shortstop in the first month of the opening. Even when Park Gye-beom and Kim Jae-ho took over the starting shortstop position one after another, coach Lee used Lee Yoo-chan as the second baseman to guarantee steady opportunities. Lee Yoo-chan also lived up to his belief by batting .313 in May.

Recently, however, Lee Yu-chan was not good. He started as the ninth batter and second baseman against Samsung on the 9th, but made a decisive mistake in offense and defense. In the bottom of the seventh inning, when he was leading 3-2, he hit a hit with two outs and was caught in check. In the top of the ninth inning, when the score was tied at 3-3, the home throw fell significantly after the ground ball defense at second and third bases with one out. Both runners came in. Doosan lost 4-6.

Lee Yoo-chan and Lee had no choice but to lower their heads. Before the match, coach Lee covered up Lee Yoo-chan’s throwing error that came out the previous day. Rather, he praised, “If it weren’t for Lee Yoo-chan, I wouldn’t have been able to hold the ball and throw it.” It contains a message to play confidently without being intimidated. However, a decisive throwing error came out again.

The power of Doosan, which had won 11 consecutive games last month, came from defense. There were only two errors during the winning streak. The next 13 games were 11 errors. There was a mistake almost every game. Three of them are Lee Yoo-chan’s mistakes. Doosan had only four wins and nine losses in these 13 games.

Coach Lee’s appointment of Lee Yoo-chan was a choice for Doosan’s future. Doosan’s main shortstop position, which had been agonizing all season, turned around and eventually took over by veteran infielder Kim Jae-ho (38). There is no player yet to threaten Kim Jae-ho. Ahn Jae-seok, who came up from the first division, will also play second baseman, not shortstop.

Coach Lee said, “I have to catch it when the opportunity comes, but Lee Yoo-chan himself will be the hardest,” adding, “Since he is a young player, wouldn’t it be good to practice and study more?” Coach Lee is still counting on Lee Yoo-chan. It’s Lee Yoo-chan’s turn to respond to the season’s first trip to Futures.
