“I dream of Lee Jung-hoo, you talk like this… Kiwoom

outfielder Lee Joo-hyung (22) waved his hand. It is clear that he is burdened with the talk of ‘post-Lee Jung-hoo’. However, if you look at Lee Joo-hyung’s talent and athletic ability, you can see why he is a promising prospect LG cherished. A special rookie who even solved military service. Regardless of his own will, there is no choice but to talk about Lee Jung-hoo.

In 38 games, Lee Joo-hyung had 28 hits in 91 at-bats, a batting average of 0.308, 3 home runs, 15 RBIs, 17 points, 3 steals, an OPS of 0.855 and a scoring batting average of 0.353. In LG, where the composition of members was perfect, the role was limited, and the Futures League was narrow. He wears the Kiwoom uniform and explodes his potential as expected.

In particular, after transferring to Kiwoom, in 20 games, 24 hits in 76 at-bats, a batting average of 0.316 OPS, 0.882 and 3 stolen bases. He has fully established himself as the starting center fielder. If he plays full-time, he is evaluated as having 20 homers and 20 stolen bases at 30% someday, but 30% is possible right now this season.

He makes good contact and can make doubles with his quick feet. On the 20th, Gocheok Lotte Jeonseo slowed down with 3 strikeouts, and on the 8th Lotte Jeonseo also suffered 5 strikeouts. Number fighting and improvisational skills at the plate can, of course, be developed through experience.스포츠토토

However, his unique talent baseball makes Kiwoom fans happy. On the 19th, he appeared as the lead batter at the end of the 8th inning of the Gocheok Kiwoom game, and after getting on base due to an opponent’s error, he stole 2nd base with 1 out and 1 base on the ball count. Lotte Battery noticed Lee Joo-hyung’s start, but Lee Joo-hyung’s main focus was so fast.

Then, 2504 hits legend, KBS N Sports commentator Park Yong-taek, who was relaying the game, laughed and said, “It’s fast,” and said, “I dream of Lee Jung-hoo. You talk like this. Lee Joo-hyung would be better at Rusang. The only thing Lee Jung-hoo lacks is movement on the floor.”

It’s true. Lee Jung-hoo is not only overshadowed by his tremendous attack power, but his defense power is also quite good. However, relative mobility is not outstanding. I’m not on the slow side, but I’m not as fast as Hyesung Kim. She was so good at hitting that there was no reason for her to steal many bases. However, director Hong Won-ki said that Lee Joo-hyung’s explosive efforts are not inferior to Kim Hye-seong at all.

No one thinks Kiwoom will go to the postseason this year, he said. We have come too far to talk about the 5th River, even if it is just empty words. Anyway, the die has been cast, and now we have to nurture Lee Joo-hyung and Choi Won-tae’s gift from LG and use it well. Together with them, we must plan a bright future again. It is a club that is good at raising players, but recently, Kiwoom has been evaluated as not being able to stand out. You can laugh just by looking at Lee Joo-hyung.
