When will coexistence happen?
KIA Tigers’ May market is not easy. After falling to the bottom in April, it climbed up to 4th place with a steep upward curve. His concentration on the mound and batting line stood out. So, I expected it to be a hopeful May, but fell into a five-game losing streak and turned to a deficit with 2 wins and 6 losses. The reason is the silence of the other ships.
In particular, Hwang Dae-in’s bat looks too heavy. In 100 at-bats, he has a batting average of .201, 2 home runs, 13 RBIs, and an OPS of .581. His on-base percentage is 2.7 and his slugging percentage is 3.1 and 1. Last year, he hit a career high with 14 homers and 91 RBIs. It was a double-digit home run for the second year in a row. It was thanks to the table set by Na Seong-beom, Choi Hyung-woo, and Socrates that the team scored more than 90 RBIs.
This year, with the experience of the past two years, expectations were raised that he would become a reliable center hitter with 20 home runs and 100 RBIs. I also gained confidence through fruitful training during the off-season and spring camp. The goal has also been raised. However, when the lid is opened, the 100 at-bats are far below expectations.토스카지노
There are 25 strikeouts. 1 strikeout in every 4 at bats. There is no zone of one’s own that is firm at bat. As he continued to fail, his self-confidence plummeted. He still has 113 matches left. His experience of the past 2 years will never be in vain. Like life, trials keep coming. He can be reborn as a central hitter only when he creates the momentum of his own rebound.
Woota Geopo Byun Woo-hyuk and Sangsaeng are also at a standstill. Byun Woo-hyuk is recording 10.69 ri in 73 at-bats. 20 strikeouts in 73 at bats. In the opening second game against SSG Landers, he hit 3 home runs, including a transfer home run and a grand total, and scored 11 RBIs. His batting average is low, but he is making little progress under given conditions. There were many opportunities to participate, but before I knew it, the opponent’s lure and attack slowed down.
Manager Kim Jong-guk expected a win-win situation between Hwang Dae-in and Byun Woo-hyeok. When Kim Do-yeong, who was the main player at third base, was injured, Byun Woo-hyeok, who could play not only first base but also third base, was the first alternative. It would have been the best picture if the two players established themselves as corner infielders. Coach Kim Jong-guk appointed Choi Hyung-woo as the left fielder to utilize both players at the same time.
The picture of coexistence did not last long. Both players couldn’t do their part. Ryu Ji-hyeok hit 30% and established himself as the starting third baseman, and Choi Hyeong-woo perfectly rejuvenated as a designated hitter. Ko Jong-wook, a pinch hitter, is playing left field. As Byun Woo-hyeok’s utilization has narrowed, he is competing again with Hwang Dae-in for first base. No one has a solid first base starter.
Anyone must explode to energize the KIA lineup. First of all, Hwang Dae-in’s recovery is desperately needed. There are still expectations that Byun Woo-hyuk will step up as a central hitter, but he still has little first-team experience and is still in the process of growing. It is also a way of coexistence for Hwang Dae-in, who has made achievements, to be in the center and Byun Woo-hyuk to support him.
