Gu Chang-mo, who spent the first year of a multi-year contract with a maximum of 13.2 billion won in 6+1 years, made a start against LG in Jamsil on June 2, threw 5 balls, and voluntarily gave up. His reason was an injury. He was diagnosed with microscopic damage to the flexor muscle between the elbow and wrist during two close examinations, and a three-week rehabilitation was obtained. After that, Chang-mo Gu went to Ijima Osteopathic Center in Japan, which is called the holy land of rehabilitation, and received treatment for two weeks, but her condition deteriorated due to a stress fracture at the end of June. 

It has already been over two months since he was excluded from the first team. Coach Kang said, “Currently, Chang-mo Koo started playing the 20m catch ball. He is training with a schedule of training one day and resting one day,” he said. It is a little difficult to say with a certainty when he will return. He needs to watch the process more,” he said. 

Despite the injury, Koo Chang-mo had the joy of being selected as a wild card for the Hangzhou Asian Games, which will open on the 23rd of next month. Along with Park Se-woong (Lotte), who boarded together as a wild card, he was selected as a one-two punch to lead the national team. However, due to an unexpected fatigue fracture injury, it became a situation where it was impossible to guarantee participation.

Coach Kang said, “I hope I return to the team before going to the Asian Games and play one or two games. Only then can we improve our performance,” he said. In the national team, Chang-mo Koo has a role to play.”

On the other hand, the NC to meet Doosan starter Choi Seung-yong is Son A-seop (DH) – Park Min-woo (2nd baseman) – Park Gun-woo (right fielder) – Jason Martin (center fielder) – Kwon Hee-dong (left fielder) – Seo Ho-cheol (3rd baseman) – Yoon Hyung-jun (1st baseman) – Kim Joo-won (shortstop) and Ahn Joong-yeol (catcher) formed the starting lineup. Starting pitcher Eric Peddie. 

Song Myeong-gi, whose starting pitching was canceled due to the cancellation of rain the day before, will wait for the bullpen in the games on the 19th and 20th. Coach Kang announced plans to readjust the starting rotation with Lee Jae-hak’s return next week.
