NC announced its roster in January 2024
NC announced its roster in January 2024. On July 18, last year, it was announced that right-handed pitcher Chae Ji-sun, who was traded from LG to wear the NC uniform, had changed her name to Chae Won-hoo. LG, which was challenging for the championship at the time, had traded Chae Won-hoo in return for Choi Seung-min.
Chae Won-hoo was a top prospect who graduated from Gwangju Il-Go and was selected by Doosan with the 8th overall pick in the second round of the 2015 rookie draft. He showed promise in the 2020 season, going 1-0 with a 4.91 ERA in 37 appearances for Doosan. After returning from military service as a social worker, he earned his first win and hold in his first five years in the organization.
His confident delivery raised expectations, and he was included in a trade between the Jamsil rivals ahead of the 2021 season. Chae Won-hoo wore the LG uniform alongside Ham Deok-joo. Conversely, first baseman Yang Seok-hwan and left-hander Nam Ho went to Doosan. Chae Won-hoo never really blossomed in LG. In 2021, 온라인카지노 he finished with a 3.12 ERA in 14 games and 17⅓ innings pitched. In 2022, he only appeared in three games. Yang Seok-hwan has since signed a 4+2 year, 7.8 billion won free agent contract and Ham Deok-ju also signed a 4+4 year, 3.8 billion won free agent contract.
They were unable to break through LG’s thick bullpen depth.
Eventually, in 2023, LG manager Yeom Kyung-yeop, who was looking for the big prize, traded Chae Won-hoo to acquire Choi Seung-min, a top prospect. Chae Won-hoo received some expectations after the NC transfer. At the time of the trade, manager Kang Myung-ho said, “His slider and changeup pitches are valuable. He has a good ball and his fastball reaches the low 140s. His game sense is a problem, but he has a good delivery and is short, but he is not inexperienced.”
However, Chae Won-hoo was also not used in the NC. He appeared in one game in LG and two games in July after his transfer to NC, but his performance was not good. Last year, he pitched 3 games and 3⅓ innings with an 8.10 ERA, 4 hits, 4 walks, 2 strikeouts, and 3 earned runs.
He changed uniforms twice in two years. Chae Won-hoo wanted to settle down and show what he could do. She eventually decided to change her name. “Chae Won-hoo has been thinking about changing her name in the past, and now that she has been traded twice, she wants to stay with the same team for a long time,” the club explained.
Chae Won-hoo had his name changed at the Hangul Phonetic Society in Busan.
It is famous for being the naming place of Son Asup. Son changed his name from Son Kwang-min to Son As-seob in 2009 and has since grown into one of the hitting machines of Korean baseball. Last year, he won his fourth career batting title and his first ever batting title.
After Son, SSG Oh Tae-gon (renamed Oh Seung-taek), Han Yoo-seom (renamed Han Dong-min), and Na Kyun-an (renamed Na Jong-duk) have all gone on to successful careers after being renamed by the Korean Sonography Society. 바카라사이트 순위 Jeon Rugan (formerly known as Jeon Chang-min), who was at Doosan with Chae Won-hoo and settled in NC first as a free agent compensation player for Yang Ji, also changed his name from Son Asub. “I consulted with my parents and went to a place where there was a good example of Son Ah-seop,” Chae Won-hoo explained.
For Chae Won-hoo, changing her name is a way out and a new hope, and it remains to be seen if she can join the myth of the renamed players.
