Lotte, who only looked at the case of Noh Kyung-eun, will it become a myth of the release player?

There are many players who contributed to SSG winning this season, but if you are to choose one among them, veteran pitcher Noh Kyung-eun (38, SSG) cannot be left out.

Noh Kyung-eun, who was released from Lotte last winter, made a new nest at SSG. Initially, it was expected that Park Jong-hoon and Moon Seung-won, who were in rehabilitation after surgery, would fill the gap until they returned, but Noh Kyung-eun performed more than that. He led the team’s ‘Wire-to-Wire’ championship with 12 wins, 5 losses, 1 save and 7 holds with an ERA of 3.05 in 41 games while playing a starter, middle, and all-weather performance.

Looking at Noh Kyung-eun like this, Lotte feels sorry for her. Lotte said goodbye to Noh Kyung-eun, saying he was out of power, but at SSG, Noh Kyung-eun’s value was highly valued.

Is that why? Lotte diligently collected players who failed to shine in other teams this winter and said goodbye.

It started with bringing in Shin Jeong-rak, who had been released from Hanwha. After collecting pitcher resources such as Kim Sang-soo and Yoon Myung-jun, he also brought left-hander Cha Woo-chan from LG to draw attention.

He was also active in reinforcing beasts. Outfielders Lee Jeong-woo and Ahn Kwon-soo were assigned to Lotte, and catcher Lee Jeong-hoon was also signed.

Lotte’s move comes from confidence toward the next season. Lotte, which was supported by a strong ‘bullet’ from the group, reinforced its strength by recruiting free agent (FA) players. He filled the most desired catcher position with Yoo Kang-nam, and even brought in Noh Jin-hyeok, a shortstop for the big guns. 토토

In particular, the recruitment of catchers helps existing pitchers as well as released pitchers to rise anew in Lotte.

With the recruitment of Noh Jin-hyuk, it is expected to be a plus factor in terms of offense and defense as it reinforces the infield. In addition, with the departure of Son A-seop, the players who were released to the outfield, who have been able to afford it, can look for opportunities.

This season, Lotte showed an active performance, such as running for second place for a month after the opening, but fell down due to players’ line injuries. The shallow player base was one of the reasons.

This winter, Lotte is looking forward to good results next season while filling the barn with various players. If ‘the second Noh Kyung-eun’ comes out, it will be icing on the cake.
