South Korea’s baseball team, which will try to win its fourth straight title at the Hangzhou Asian Games, will watch the regular season of the Major League Baseball through this week before deciding on a replacement.
“Together with head coach Ryu Jung-il and the national team coaching staff, we will watch the games as much as possible and decide on replacement players,” Cho Gye-hyun, chairman of the KBO’s Power Enhancement Committee, which selects baseball players and runs the national team, said on Wednesday.카지노
An official familiar with the national team’s situation also said, “We will watch the baseball schedule this week and decide on the replacement players next week.”
The strength and conditioning committee will meet next week to finalize the replacement players and announce the roster after the Korea Baseball and Softball Association’s strength and conditioning committee approves it.
The players, who currently play for 10 KBO clubs, will be called up to the national team after playing until the 22nd.
The team will begin its first training session at the Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 23rd, followed by a practice game on the 26th, before flying to Hangzhou, China on the 28th.

(SEOUL) – The Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) and the Korea Baseball Softball Association (KBSA) on Monday announced the final 24-man roster for the Hangzhou Asian Games.
The team will need to find a replacement for Lee Jung-hoo (Kiwoom Heroes), whose season was cut short due to ankle surgery.
The team will also need to keep an eye on the status of left-handed pitcher Koo Chang-mo (NC Dinos), who was a late scratch after suffering a muscle injury in his left forearm (between the elbow and wrist) and a stress fracture in his left arm.
He recently threw three bullpen sessions, one each day, and will get a feel for the game this week with live pitches with batters on base.
According to the NC organization, Koo will throw two innings of live ball on the 13th, throwing 15 pitches per inning. Afterward, he will check his velocity and physical condition before pitching in a second-team game against Sangmu on the weekend.
Right-hander Jang Hyun-seok (Masan Yongmago), the only amateur to make the team, has recently resumed pitching and is likely to make the trip to Hangzhou without any major setbacks.
National team bullpen coach Chung Dae-hyun is keeping a close eye on Jang’s pitches, and Jang will soon pitch in a practice game to strengthen his shoulder.
“It’s going to be a tough tournament as the Chinese Taipei team is very strong and the Japanese unemployed baseball players are very good,” said Cho. “We need to win our group game against Chinese Taipei on October 2 to challenge for the gold medal, so we are focusing on planning a must-win strategy with the national team coaching staff.”
