“I hope SSG will be the last team.”
The Doosan Bears announced a surprise trade on Friday ahead of the fifth game of the season against Samsung at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul. It was a one-for-one trade that sent outfielder Kang Jin-sung to SSG for right-handed pitcher Kim Jung-woo. SSG first approached Doosan about the possibility of signing Kang Jin-sung on the 21st, and after internal discussions, Doosan chose pitcher Kim Jung-woo in return on the morning of the 25th.메이저사이트
Kang Jin-sung, who was sent down to the Future League on Aug. 8, pitched against Goyang at the Goyang National Baseball Training Center before heading straight to his room to say goodbye to the team. Dressed in his training uniform, he turned 90 degrees to coach Lee Seung-yup, who was coaching the team on the field, and then shook hands and hugged the coaching staff and players in anticipation of their next meeting.
Speaking before the game, Coach Lee Seung-yup said, “Last time, Kang Jin-sung didn’t get enough opportunities due to the team’s bad situation and was sent down to the second team. I was thinking of calling him up again next time, but the opportunity came and he was traded.” “Actually, I was worried a lot because there weren’t many opportunities in our team. The player himself is very sincere. He can play both infield and outfield defense, and his batting accuracy is high, so he has high utility value. I think it’s a good thing for Jin-sung. I greeted him earlier and told him to do his best with the idea that SSG is the last team. I hope Jinsung takes it positively,” he said, wishing his former student well.

Doosan’s pick, Kim Jung-woo, is a promising right-hander who was selected by SK in the first round of the 2018 rookie draft out of Dongsango. He fulfilled his military service obligations through his employer, and went 2-1 with a 1.84 ERA in 14 games and four saves in the Futures League this year. However, he has only appeared in one game (one inning, one run) in 2019.
Lee said, “For a first-round pick, his performance in the Futures this year is good. He’s young and has solved the military issue. It’s good to have one more pitcher, so we decided to take Kim Jung-woo.” “It’s a choice for the future rather than the immediate future. He is said to have taken a few days off recently due to a bad toe, but I would like to see it with my own eyes when I get the chance.”
Kim will have his first meeting with the team before the Jamsil SSG game on April 26. After that, he will go down to the Future League to check his pitching. Kang Jin-sung, on the other hand, was added to the Incheon LG Electronics first team roster on the 25th following the trade. After saying goodbye to the Doosan squad, Kang Jin-sung took a taxi to Incheon SSG Landers Field.
