Lee Jae-hak, who improved his physical condition through treatment and rehabilitation, appeared in a practice game against Dankook University on the 8th and threw 39 balls. On the 17th, he will face the SSG Futures team and accelerate his return to the first team.
As of the 14th, NC, which is in 4th place with 50 wins, 1 draw and 46 losses, and is fiercely fighting for the middle rank, is also waiting for Lee Jae-hak to return quickly. NC, which consists of the league’s best ace Eric Peddy and new foreign pitchers Tanner Tully, Choi Seong-young, Song Myeong-ki, and Shin Min-hyuk, etc., can further deepen the mound when Lee Jae-hak returns in good health.
