LG Twins coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop left for the United States after thinking about how to use the players this year.
Director Yeom met reporters before boarding a plane to the United States via Incheon International Airport on the 27th and said, “Excitement, hope, and anxiety coexist,” and “the basic idea has been completed.”
Hong Chang-ki, Kim Hyeon-soo, and the new foreign player Austin Dean’s positions have been decided. Director Yeom said, “Kim Hyun-soo will be the designated hitter and Hong Chang-ki will be the left fielder.”
Coach Yeom continued, “To win the game, we must prevent the opposing team from advancing. The right fielder must have a strong shoulder to prevent him from going to base. With a strong right field shoulder, he doesn’t even think about going all the way to third base. That’s why I’m going to leave right field to Dean.”
The third outfield owner has been decided. Hong Chang-ki is the left fielder, Park Hae-min is the starting center fielder, and Dean is the right fielder. Kim Hyun-soo is the designated hitter. Until last season, Hong Chang-ki played right fielder, but he changed his position and is determined not to allow the opposing team to advance further. 메이저사이트
Dean, who will play for the first time in front of LG fans this year, is evaluated as a right-handed hitter with good contact and long hitting power. He can watch first base and the outfield, but coach Yeom plans to take the right outfield rather than first base.
Lee Jae-won is being considered as the first baseman. However, in order not to burden the defense, he tries to make use of it by making substitutions in the second half of the game.
Lee Jae-won is expected to have long hitting power. Director Yeom said, “Basically, the lineup is all drawn,” and “I tried various batting order. I will observe more during the camp to see if what I envisioned is correct or not.”
Meanwhile, the LG team will camp in Arizona, USA from the 1st of next month to the 6th of March. Including coach Yeom, 19 coaching staff and 43 players including captain Oh Ji-hwan will participate. The first-team camp consisted of 26 pitchers, 4 catchers, 6 infielders and 7 outfielders.
