SSG coach Kim Won-hyung, whom we met at Gocheok Dome on the 6th, said, “Mccarty asked for a replacement, saying he would like to throw only this far (6 innings).

Was McCarty bothered by the request for a replacement? He expressed his apology to director Kim Won-hyung. Manager Kim said, “I came the next day and said I was sorry.

McCarty teamed up with Cho Hyung-woo, a catcher in his third year, to make a perfect match against KT. SSG is just a reliable

presence. Director Kim said, “McCarty is working with Cho Hyung-woo without saying anything. So it seems that Cho Hyung-woo is showing a good appearance when he goes to the game, and there are situations where he can trust and send him to the game.”

Coach Kim continued, “I think that a good pitcher is the process of making a good catcher. McCarty is now in charge of one axis of the starting rotation, and he continues to show good performance while working with a young catcher. It is a combination that can gain confidence together. “, he was satisfied.

McCarty’s next appearance is likely to be against KIA in Gwangju on the 10th. Attention is focusing on whether McCarty will be able to maintain the updraft by showing off his breath with Cho Hyeong-woo again.
