Peña out with fracture, but ‘Prince of Daejeon’ fills the void

Peña is out, but Moon Dong-joo is back!

The Hanwha Eagles have made an emergency change to their starting rotation. It’s due to the injury of foreign pitcher Peña.

Peña started the game against the NC Dinos at the Hanwha Life Eagles Park in Daejeon on April 15, but had a nightmare start. He gave up a run in the second inning due to a sudden change of pitches and was hit on the right wrist while trying to catch a grounder by Son Asub with his bare hands. He was immediately replaced and rushed to the hospital.

Fortunately, there were no major injuries such as fractures. However, Hanwha removed Peña from the first team roster ahead of the NC game on the 16th.

“Fortunately, it’s not a major injury,” said coach Choi Won-ho before the game. But it’s not something that will allow him to play in the next rotation. 토토사이트 I think he needs to pitch with the first team, recover, and then schedule his next start,” Choi explained.

The problem was who would fill Peña’s void in an already thin starting rotation. But the problem was easily solved. Moon Dong-joo was called up early.

Moon was inexplicably sent to the second team last month after struggling this season.

Choi received reports that Moon was improving, and initially planned to call him up to the first team after he pitched in starting mode in the second team game this weekend.

But now he has no other option. We have no choice but to use Moon Dong-joo. It’s a bit of a quick turnaround for a player who was going to be called up anyway.

Unfortunately, Moon was scheduled to pitch in a second-team game against the Samsung Lions in Gyeongsan on the same day, but the game was canceled due to rain. Hanwha will start a three-game series against Daegu on the 17th. 사설 토토사이트 Moon will stay in Gyeongsan and join the first team squad. From there, he’ll pitch out of the bullpen to check his mechanics, and then he’ll pitch in Peña’s next start, a home game against the LG Twins in Daejeon on the 21st.
