Na Kyun-an will start in the 2023 Shinhan Bank Sol KBO League match against the Hanwha Eagles at Hanwha Life Insurance Eagles Park in Daejeon on the 4th.
It is the first appearance in 13 days since the match against KT Wiz in Suwon on the 21st of last month.
Na Kyun-an, who was shaken with 10 hits and 6 runs in 5 innings in the game at the time, complained of discomfort in his elbow after the game.
He wasn’t seriously injured. Na Gyun-ahn, who quickly recovered from his injury, joined the rehabilitation group to prepare for his comeback, and he returned after missing only one start.
Even though ace Na Kyun-an was missing, the Lotte starters persevered. In the 9 games since the 22nd without Na Kyun-an, Lotte’s starting average ERA complied with 2.96. In particular, Park Se-woong, who led Lotte’s native starting lineup with Na Kyun-an, showed powerful pitches in two appearances.
Jeong Seong-jong, who received a chance as a replacement for Na Gyun-an, showed his potential by fighting hard against the Sajik Samsung Lions on the 27th of the same month with 2 hits and no runs in 4 innings.
The return of Na Kyun-ahn is a great boost to Lotte.
Na Gyun-an, who turned to pitching in 2020 and made his pitching debut on the first team stage in 2021, is proud of his skills in full bloom this year in his third year. In 14 games, he went 6-2 with a 3.14 earned run average.
In particular, during the month of April, he performed outstandingly with 4 wins and an ERA of 1.34 in 5 matches, winning the MVP award for the first time in his life.
Na Gyun-an, who has been slowing down in terms of wins since May, is aiming for his 7th win of the season in his return from injury.
Starting with Na Kyun-an, injured soldiers return to Lotte one after another. The return of Choi Jun-yong, a key resource in Lotte’s bullpen, is imminent, and starting shortstop Noh Jin-hyuk is expected to join before the end of the first half.
Lotte, which had been fighting for the lead until May, was pushed back to 4th place as it stagnated with 9 wins and 16 losses in June. With the atmosphere slumping, rumors of a disagreement between the manager and coach seemed to be facing a crisis.
However, Lotte coach Larry Sutton expects that key resources who left due to injuries will rebound in July. In other words, Na Kyun-an is at the forefront.
