Lotte, who needs a selection, still seems not to reach out to Jeong Chan-heon… atmosphere skeptical

No comment, no comment.”

Seong Min-gyu, general manager of Lotte, was very cautious. He did everything he could to say, but his original appearance was nowhere to be found.

As such, he implied that he was carefully handling the issue of recruiting free agent pitcher Jeong Chan-heon.

The Lotte Giants met a major bad news ahead of the opening.

Seo Jun-won, who was competing for the 5th selection, has been먹튀검증 charged with sexual offenses against minors and has been indicted by the prosecution. Lotte immediately took action to withdraw from the group even before a legal decision was made.

It is a significant loss for Lotte. A pitcher who could be a starting pitcher suddenly disappeared.

We need players to compete for selection right away. You may be interested in starting pitchers on the market.

Jung Chan-heon is virtually the only pitcher released in the current market. A trade could paint a different picture, but it’s fair to say that few teams are willing to trade starting pitchers at this point.

This is why attention is focused on Jeong Chan-heon, who can compete for the 5th selection.

However, Chan-heon Jeong is unlikely to wear a Lotte uniform. Because the atmosphere inside is not good.

Lotte general manager Seong Min-gyu said, “I cannot comment on Chan-heon Jeong. The word ‘no comment’ can also be interpreted in different ways. As of now, we cannot say anything about Jeong Chan-heon

. ”

Regarding Chan-heon Jeong, a Lotte official said, “It’s a situation where we can’t say anything. However, it is possible to convey the atmosphere that developing internal power is a better way than recruiting Jeong Chan-heon. Myung-Jun Yoon, Lee-Jun Choi, and others are growing in their ability to serve as the 5th starter within the team. He thinks they will be given a chance first as he has prepared with all his might. Although I am not in a position to make decisions, I think I will fill the vacancy through internal growth rather than recruiting Jung Chan-heon. The possibility of recruiting Jeong Chan-heon seems very low.”

Regarding the recruitment of Jeong Chan-heon, Doosan completely pulled out first. Foreign player Dylan Pyle was injured after being hit in the head by a ball during training, so a hiatus of nearly a month is inevitable. It has become a situation where a starting pitcher is needed immediately.

However, Doosan decided to fill the void with internal growth. Following Choi Seung-yong, Park Shin-ji and Kim Dong-ju are competing.

In addition, even Lotte, where the starting competitor was eliminated, pulled out, and Jeong Chan-heon’s position could be said to have narrowed even more.

Although he is not saying it openly, it seems that Lotte is not very interested in recruiting Jeong Chan-heon.

The decision makers, such as the general manager and the coach in charge, are sparing their words, but in the comments from the club officials, it can be read that there is no intention in recruiting Jeong Chan-heon.

How will Jeong Chan-heon’s season unfold? With one or two teams stepping out, the possibility of standing on the professional stage again is gradually narrowing.
