“I need 100% Choi Jun-yong” Lotte cries over injury, but never rushes into action

The Lotte Giants’ Choi Joon-yong rejoined the squad for the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League against the Samsung Lions at Sajik Stadium on the 28th. A month after being sidelined with micro-inflammation in his back, he returned healthy and immediately threw bullpen pitches in front of the first-team coaching staff.

However, he was not added to the roster. Lotte is waiting for Choi to be fit enough to play. On the 29th, manager Larry Sutton said, “I didn’t see him pitch in the bullpen. But I heard about it from the pitching coach. The first thing we need to do is make sure he’s in good shape,” Sutton said, emphasising the importance of his health.

“We are also checking how he recovers after pitching in the bullpen. Once he’s ready, we’ll decide at what point to bring him up. We don’t want him at 70-80 per cent. We need him at 100 percent. We’re not going to rush him,” he added.

If Choi comes back healthy, he could be a big addition to Lotte. In nine games this season, he has a 0.00 ERA in seven innings and two holds. Having ‘Mr Zero’ back at 100 per cent would be a huge boost for Lotte, who have been suffering from tailgate jitters as of late.

For now, Choi is with the squad. He’ll be with the team for the three-game weekend series against the Doosan Bears on the 30th at Munsu Stadium in Ulsan. “We’ll see him in Ulsan when he pitches out of the bullpen,” Sutton said.
