On the 27th, through his social network service (SNS), Yang Chang-seop said, “Hello! It seems like I’m greeting you after a long time.” “he said.
Next, Yang Chang-seop said, “I was enlisted in the military without being able to finish this season to the end. First of all, I would like to apologize to the Samsung Lions fans and fans who supported me for not being able to finish (the season) and show a better image.” In the 2025 season, I will come back healthy and improved.”
Yang Chang-seop, who graduated from Cheongnyang Middle School and Deoksu High School, has attracted a lot of attention with his extraordinary potential since high school, and wore a Samsung uniform with the 2nd place in the 2nd round of the 2018 rookie draft. In the first year of his professional debut, he also showed the potential to grow as a starter, going 7-6 with an earned run average of 5.05 in 19 games and 87⅓ innings.스포츠토토
But injuries always got in the way. Yang Chang-seop complained of elbow pain ahead of the 2019 season, and had to go through a rehabilitation period of more than a year while on the operating table in March of that year. In 2021, due to a back injury, he only appeared in nine games in the first team.
Yang Chang-seop, who only pitched in 6 games in the first team last season due to a shoulder injury, is one of the players the coaching staff had high expectations for, as he got a chance to start in the demonstration game. He had two starting chances at the beginning of the season, but he dropped out of the starting competition when he failed to produce satisfactory results.
Yang Chang-seop, who got another chance at the end of May, was sent back to the second group with his worst record since his debut on June 1 against Incheon SSG Landers, with 10 hits (4 home runs), 2 walks, 2 strikeouts and 11 runs in 4 innings. After being called up in mid-June, he showed stable pitching as a reliever and seemed to add strength to the Samsung bullpen, but he could not complete the season.
Yang Chang-seop, who enlisted as a full-time reserve, is expected to return in the 2025 season as planned. Fans, colleagues, and coaching staff still have expectations for his potential. Attention is focusing on whether he will be able to stand on the mound with a more developed appearance as he wishes.
