Director Yeom was preparing alternative resources in preparation for the departure of the existing starting lineup.
He said, “Kim Yoon-sik, Lee Min-ho, and Son Ju-yeong were ready to come up to the 1st team at any time from the Futures (2nd team) team.”
“The number 1 alternative resource is Kim Yun-sik
If Kim Yun-sik is shaken, he will give other players a chance.”

Son Ju-young is scheduled to start.”
Kim Yun-sik started the 2023 season with the 4th starter, but was sluggish with 3 wins and 4 losses with an average ERA of 5.29 went down to the 2nd team on June 9th.
Initially, coach Yeom planned to bring Kim Yun-sik to the first team in mid-August, but changed his plan after recruiting Choi Won-tae as a starting resource on July 29.
