“I miss the 1st team stage, of course.”

LG Twins pitcher Lim Jeong-woo (32) had a career high season in 2016. He appeared in 67 games, where he went 3-8 with 28 saves and a 3.82 ERA. After his first-team debut in 2011, he played the most games and was ranked second after Kim Se-hyun in the save category.

However, it was not easy to see Lim Jung-woo after that. Injuries continued to plague him. As his shoulder and elbow hindered his baseball life, he only played 17 games in the 2017 season and 2 games in the 2018 season.

Afterwards, Lim Jeong-woo enlisted as a public service worker in January 2019 and went to fulfill his military duties, and was discharged in November 2020.

Lim Jeong-woo steadily improved his physical condition and waited for the day to stand in the first team. However, it was not easy to see Lim Jeong-woo in the first team. He did not come up easily. He appeared in 4 games in the 2022 season exhibition game. He had a not bad record with 3.2 innings giving up 2 runs (1 earned) in 4 games, but no first-team call-ups. He only made a mound in September in the Futures League as well, but appeared in all three games. 온라인바카라

The last time LG fans saw Lim Jeong-woo on the first team stage was on March 27, 2018 against Nexen Heroes (now Kiwoom Heroes).

In the 2023 season, I met Lim Jeong-woo, who was sweating heavily at Icheon LG Champions Park to return to the stage in Jamsil for the first team.

Lim Jung-woo said, “I can’t say my condition is very good right now, but it’s not bad. He said last year was the worst. He couldn’t play a lot, and he couldn’t get a lot of injections because of the rules when he was injured, so it seems to have had an effect.”

“Especially last year, I had a bad back. It hurt a lot. He’s not completely better now, but he has to get over it.”

He has not been on the first team ground for 1,774 days. While Lim Jeong-woo could not climb to the mound for the first team, the manager changed twice, and his teammates also changed a lot.
