Lee "Scout" Ye-Chan will be EDward Gaming's starting mid laner in the 2016 LPL Summer Season, sources close to the team have confirmed to theScore esports.

Scout joined EDG in March, but has yet to play for the team. He will be replacing Heo "pawN" Won-seok, who is being pushed off the starting lineup due to ongoing back pain. Pawn played in 25 games during the Spring Season, picking up a 3.87 KDA and helping the team place second in their group and second in the playoffs.

Scout came to the team from SK Telecom T1, where he was a mid lane substitute. He played only two games for SKT, losing both.
