Lim Chang-min, who made his debut in the first division in 2009 wearing the Heroes (currently Kiwoom) uniform, moved to the NC Dinos through trade in 2012.
He recorded 17 holds in the 2021 season, but received a release notice from NC, and defended the Doosan Bears mound last season, but was released again.
In November last year, his former team Kiwoom reached out to Lim Chang-min and reunited for the first time in 11 years.
This year, Lim Chang-min overcame the sorrow of release and stood up as if to see. He pitched 39 innings in 43 games this season and had a good record of one win, two losses, 21 saves, and one hold ERA of 2.08. 토토사이트넷
Lim Chang-min, who made only five saves in the past five seasons, has achieved 20 saves in six years since 29 saves in 2017. In addition, he enjoyed the joy of surpassing 100 saves (currently 117 saves) in his personal career.
Kiwoom swept three consecutive games against the Lotte Giants last weekend, achieving a sweep victory in 59 days.
Closer Lim Chang-min’s contribution was high. In all three consecutive games, he showed his fighting spirit to take the mound in a save situation and kept the team’s lead. In particular, he completed his mission with experienced game management in a tough save situation by one point twice.
The head coach is proud to have watched Closer’s performance throughout the season
Kiwoom manager Hong Won-ki said, “I may feel differently, but I feel the same way. He watched the growth of Heroes and Nexen (now Kiwoom) together. “I came to our team after many twists and turns, and I’m very moved to set such a record (20 saves).”
Kiwoom is a team full of young pitchers. Experienced veteran Lim Chang-min is a great example of his juniors.
Head coach Hong said, “In the current difficult situation, Lim Chang-min is telling young pitchers a lot of stories, including his experience,” adding, “It is a good example for young pitchers.” “There is an indescribable gratitude,” he said.
