The Armed Forces Sports Unit (Sangju) announced the results of the second physical measurement of athletes in 2024 on the 8th.
Those who passed the exam will be disclosed anonymously with one letter empty. However, Han Dong-hee and Lee Jae-won were included in the 25 candidates who passed the exam.
Sangmu will announce the final acceptance list in March. Considering their past careers, both players are virtually confirmed to join Sangmu in June.월카지노
Han Dong-hee hit 48 home runs during the three years from 2020 to 2022. His average OPS was 0.807, and he grew well after going through adjustments for the first two seasons since his debut. Lee Jae-won also hinted at the possibility with five home runs in 2021, and he seemed to break the record with 13 home runs and 43 RBIs with an OPS of 0.769 in 2022.
After a hot year in 2022, Han Dong-hee left a disappointment in 2023. Han Dong-hee, who seemed likely to jump into the race to become the home run champion any time soon, experienced an incredible fall with a batting average of 223 and an OPS (on-base plus slugging percentage) of 0.583.
Due to repeated injuries, Lee only played 129 times in 57 games. His record was also on a sharp decline, and he failed to make the roster of the Korean Series. LG manager Yeom Kyung-yeop vowed several times that he would be a member of the Korean Series, but even if the coach decides, it is difficult for him to give a chance if the player fails. He failed to enjoy the first win in 29 years at the dugout together.
Eventually, the two players chose to go to Sangmu side by side. Han Dong-hee visited Kang Jung-ho Academy in Los Angeles before the season with Lee Dae-ho and Jeong-hoon, and was enthusiastic about his revival, but he had already decided to join Sangmu after discussions with the club. Lee Jae-won also decided to join Sangmu.
What will happen to the two players after their business trip? At least, the team has no better talent than this.
For Lotte, Jeon Joon-woo (17) hit the largest number of home runs in his team last year, and veteran Noh Jin-hyuk and Yoo Kang-nam hitters. It is unknown how many promising players such as Na Seung-yeop, Yoon Dong-hee and Kim Min-seok will step up this season, but it will not be easy for them to surpass 20 home runs. Victor Reyes, a foreign hitter, is not a big hitter either.
Except for three veterans including Kim Hyun-soo, Oh Ji-hwan and Park Dong-won, Lee Jae-won has hit the most home runs in a single season in his team over the past five years, excluding Lee Hyung-jong (Kium), Yoo Kang-nam (Lotte), and Chae Eun-sung (Hanwha). In Jamsil Stadium, where home runs are precious, it is rare for a batter to hit double-digit home runs.
