Samsung manager Park Jin-man mentioned a warning message to captain Oh Jae-il (37).
I have been waiting for Oh Jae-il’s blow to come back to life after the opening, but there is no sign of a rebound. Oh Jae-il, who is in the third year of a 4-year, 5 billion won FA contract, is at the bottom of the league batting average. The sluggishness of the center hitter in the Samsung batting line with low batting indicators is painful.
Oh Jae-il played in 57 games and had a batting average of 107.07 (33 hits in 186 at-bats), which is the lowest among 55 batters who filled the required number of at-bats. He doesn’t. He’s hitting 7 homers and has 32 RBI and a .612 OPS.
When coach Park mentioned Oh Jae-il’s sluggish batting prior to the game on the 15th, he said, “In the meantime, I’ve talked about this aspect of psychological pressure a lot, but now I think I should make a change. It’s more of a technical problem now than a psychological one.”
“Since the three months are almost approaching, I think I need to make sure to prepare once more. Now, apart from the psychological pressure, it is a technical problem, so it is judged that there must be a change in technology.”
Oh Jae-il has the most stability in the first base defense. At the reporter’s comment, “Isn’t first base defense the best?” Manager Park emphasized the role of solving RBIs as a center hitter, not as a defensive agent. “Currently, Samsung’s biggest problem is batting rather than defense,” he said.
Coach Park said, “In the case of Jae-il Oh, you have to play the role of the team’s central hitter. The defense is doing very well, but what our team needs first is a time when we need more players who can raise RBIs when we need to focus on the batting line or play the role of a central hitter. Oh Jae-il will have to make sure to prepare a little more.”
On the 15th, Jae-il Oh started as a first baseman 6 times against LG and scored 1 run, 1 walk and 3 hits in 3 at-bats. He still hasn’t shown a rebound. He struck out on a swing with two outs and first and third base chances in the first inning. After he struck out, he took his anger out on himself by slamming his bat on the ground.
He came out as the lead batter in the 4th inning, went on base with a walk, and scored with Ryu Seung-min’s timely hit from 1st out and 2nd base. He was out on a fly ball to shortstop with two outs on first base in the fifth inning, and a fly ball to center field after one out in the eighth inning.
Oh Jae-il exploded once with 4 hits in 5 at-bats against Lotte on the 10th. He had doubles – strikeouts – solo home runs – solo home runs – singles. However, in the following 4 games, he was silent with 12 at-bats, 1 walk, 6 strikeouts and 1 run.안전놀이터
Oh Jae-il played as a pinch hitter in the 8th inning, 1 company, 1st and 2nd base, behind 2-3 against LG on the 14th. Oh Jae-il, who had been left out of the starting lineup, came out of the tie-up opportunity and scored an advantageous 3-ball count against LG pitcher Park Myung-geun. He watched the strike on the 4th pitch, and it became a foul with an awkward check swing on the 5th pitch. I was sorry for the number of goals. He retired on a float to second base on a full count. The role of the solver in Chance is disappointing.
Samsung suffered a 3-game sweep loss to LG and is being chased by the lowest-ranked Hanwha by one game. The center hitter’s shoulders are getting heavier.
