Young players under the age of 25 are attracting attention as they play this season. This is because of the Hangzhou Asian Games held in September.
Athletes who have to fulfill military service have a strong desire to participate in the Asian Games. The selection of the national team is of course based on grades, so the grades at the time of selection are important, and you have to hit from the beginning.
If the batting average as of the 24th decides the position, who will be selected for the national team? There are certain players in the infield, but there are no suitable players for catchers and outfielders.
As for the first baseman, Koh Seung-min (23) of the Lotte Giants is showing the best hitting. He has a batting average of 2.9 and 1 Lee (16-for-55) with one home run and eight RBIs. He is a multi-position player who can also play in the outfield. Second baseman Kim Hye-seong shows the best performance. He has a batting average of 3.1 and 3 (25 hits in 80) with 5 RBIs, and with 7 stolen bases, he is tied for first place in stolen bases with NC Dinos Park Min-woo.
Noh Si-hwan is the most interested third baseman. He is batting . 3.2 9 Lee (25 hits in 76 at-bats) with 1 home run and 8 RBIs. LG Twins Moon Bo-gyeong is competing with a batting average of 209.6 (21 hits in 71 bats), 1 home run and 15 RBIs. Another competitor, Lotte Han Dong-hee, is showing sluggish batting average of 10.5 (9 hits in 60 at-bats) with 2 homers and 8 RBIs먹튀검증.
As for the shortstop, NC Kim Joo-won stands out. He was batting 2.9 with 2 home runs and 9 RBIs (20-for-67). SSG Landers’ Park Seong-han (25) has a batting average of 201.8 (12 hits in 55 at-bats), 2 home runs and 5 RBIs, and the initial flow is not good.
Kang Baek-ho is the best outfielder. Kang Baek-ho, who was sluggish due to an injury last year, is showing a good batting average this season with a batting average of 3.29 (23 hits in 79 at-bats), 3 home runs and 11 RBIs.
However, there are no young sluggers besides Kang Baek-ho (24, KT Wiz). Last year’s MVP Lee Jung-hoo (25, Kiwoom Heroes), who had to leave a spot in the outfield unconditionally, is off to a bad start with a batting average of 109.7 (13 hits in 66 at-bats), 3 home runs and 11 RBIs. Everyone has no doubt that Lee Jung-hoo will survive, but it is clear that such sluggishness is unfamiliar.
There is no other outfielder besides Kang Baek-ho and Lee Jeong-hoo. Defensive ability is obviously important for an outfielder, but batting ability should be good, but there are no young outfielders with good hitting skills.
There are no catchers. Even last year, there was a lot of opinion that it should be selected as a wild card, but the catcher is hard to see at the beginning of this season.
Among the current catchers in the 1st team, SSG Cho Hyeong-woo (21, 3 games, 7 at-bats, 1 hit) Lotte Lotte Jeong Bo-geun (249 games, 7 at-bats, 1 hit, 1 RBI) KT Kang Hyeon-woo (22, 6 games, 12 at-bats, 2 RBIs) Kiwoom There are Kim Dong-heon (19, 12 games, 5 hits, 1 RBI in 23 at-bats) and Samsung Lee Byung-hun (24, 3 games, 3 at-bats, no hits), but there is no clear starting catcher.
The Asian Games national team can select only three wild cards over the age of 25. We need an experienced senior to hold the center of the team.
Now that it is the beginning of the season, we do not know how the selection flow for the Asian Games will change in the future. A hitter who was good at it may fall into a slump, or it may suddenly pop out of nowhere after being invisible now. Along with the ranking fight, another highlight is how the national team will be formed to compete for the 4th consecutive gold medal.
