The reason why Lotte, which is staying in 7th place, is in trouble, because of the mound.

Starting and bullpen ERAs are 5.46 (ninth) and 8.10 (lowest), respectively, which are not very satisfactory even considering that it is early in the season.

In the starting lineup, Kyun-an Na is struggling alone. He recorded an average ERA of 1.45 with 3 wins in 3 games and 18⅔ innings, leading the team in most wins. In his most recent appearance, against Samsung on the 15th, he showed off his crisis management skills and won the game by pitching 5 scoreless innings.

In contrast, the rest of the pitchers are continuing a somewhat sluggish flow. Neither pitcher Dan Strayley nor Charlie Barnes has yet won their first win of the season. On the 16th, against the Samsung Lions, Barnes recorded 10 hits (1 home run), 5 walks, 3 strikeouts and 8 runs in 5⅔ innings, taking on the “disgrace” for the most runs in an individual game since his debut in the KBO League.

The bullpen is no different. There was an unexpected turn of events. Seo Jun-won, who was involved in a sexual offense against a minor, cannot play, and Min-seok Lee, 메이저사이트 who is on the operating table, is also out for the season.

As two key pitchers were missing, the coaching staff was inevitably embarrassed. Nonetheless, most of the pitchers on the mound, with the exception of “veteran” Kim Sang-soo, failed to play their part. ‘Rookie’ Lee Tae-yeon and Lee Jin-ha need more time to gain experience.
