It was natural for KIA to adjust the first division entry on the 25th. This is because Choi Hyung-woo was diagnosed with a fracture of his left collarbone for four months. However, Kia did not exclude only Choi Hyung-woo from the first division. Infielder Hwang Dae-in (27) was also excluded from the first team. There is a reason why Hwang Dae-in was excluded from the first division, although one batter who can hit one shot is precious.
If it is not an injury at this point, which has expanded to 40 entries, it should be attributed to poor batting in the end. In 60 games this season, 37 hits in 174 at-bats, batting average of 0.213 five home runs, 26 RBIs, 19 runs, and a slugging percentage of 0.322 on-base percentage of 0.296 OPS 0.618 runs batted in 0.259. 토토
It is the fourth cancellation of the first team this season following May 29, July 23, and August 18. In addition to poor performance, injuries such as hamstrings were the cause of the four cancellations. In any case, he is a batter who has established himself as the main first baseman with a batting average of 0.256 14 home runs and 91 RBIs in 129 games in the 2022 season.
Looking at the steps so far, it proves that last year’s performance is not an avid one. Head coach Kim Jong-guk expected Hwang Dae-in to grow into a big gun representing the team as a full-time first baseman, but he has not come up as much as he thought. Given that KIA still does not have a main first baseman, it is impossible to excuse the team’s situation.
Moreover, starting with Park Chan-ho over the past two weeks, KIA’s Na Sung-bum, Choi Won-jun, and Choi Hyung-woo have left the lineup one after another. Park Chan-ho is likely to return to the starting lineup this week, but Na Sung-bum and Choi Hyung-woo, the two pillars of the clean-up trio, are out for the season. It is a time when the team has to rely more on Hwang Dae-in, and KIA and Hwang Dae-in are heartbreaking.
Instead, Byun Woo-hyuk (23) survived in the first team. In fact, it is natural to survive and it is time to show to some extent. It is true that Byun Woo-hyuk had fewer opportunities than Hwang Dae-in. It is also true that Kim Do-young’s position has become relatively obscure as he has completely established himself as a third baseman.
However, there was also Hwang Dae-in’s poor performance, and there was also a time when Kim Do-young was not there. There was a time when Kim Do-young played shortstop instead of Park Chan-ho. I had plenty of time to show you something, but it hasn’t popped up yet. In 66 games this season, he had 39 hits in 166 at-bats, a batting average of 0.235 six home runs, 22 RBIs, 20 runs on-base percentage of 0.298 slugging percentage 0.367 OPS 0.665 runs batted in 0.304.
Most experts who broadcast KIA games this season, including SBS Sports commentator Lee Soon-chul, praised him as a batter with a proper batting posture. The weakness is that he has a lot of strikeouts, but he is evaluated as having his swing in any situation.
However, due to lack of experience in the first division, there is an evaluation that it is behind in the number battle with the battery. This has to be filled to some extent with side effects in practice. With Choi Hyung-woo out, KIA can also rotate as a designated hitter. A situation in which Byun Woo-hyuk can be used alternately as a first baseman and a designated hitter. In the first place, it seemed possible for Byun Woo-hyuk and Hwang Dae-in to coexist in the dramatic lineup, but anyway, now is another opportunity for Byun Woo-hyuk. For KIA, whose centerline has been loose, Byun Woo-hyuk’s shot is now really desperate. KIA’s dream is to have a 50-year-old promising duo explode together. It is all the more urgent at this point. First of all, we have to look forward to Byun Woo-hyuk once again.
