It has just been more than a month since manager Kim took the helm of Hanwha. “I can’t say I know everything perfectly, but I’ve finished to some extent,” coach Kim said, expressing his intention to carry out more active mercenaries in the second half of the year.

What stands out is right field and first baseman clean-up of traffic. Coach Kim had Chae Eun-seong as the starting right field in the first game of the last three consecutive games in the first half against KT Wiz. However, he deployed Kim Tae-yeon in the second game, and Kim Tae-yeon also played in the last game. Chae was not selected in the second game, and was at the first base in the third game.

Chae Eun-sung, who signed an FA contract worth a total of 9 billion won with Hanwha ahead of last season. He played mostly right field when he was with the LG Twins, but transferred to the FA while playing at first base increased due to the defense radius in Jamsil.

For the Hanwha Eagles, Carlos Subero used Chae Eun-seong as a right fielder at first last season, but eventually turned him to first base. So did Choi Won-ho.

The reason was clear. Given the Hanwha team’s weak outfield compared to its infield resources, Chae Eun-seong’s position in right field would have facilitated the hiring of players for the first base and designated hitter position.

That has intensified this year. It is because An Chi-hong signed an FA contract. An Chi-hong’s main position was second base, but he actually turned to first base as he got older. The roles overlapped too much with Chae Eun-sung.

Immediately after Kim’s inauguration, he also brought out cards of right fielder Chae Eun-seong and second baseman Ahn Chi-hong. Kim, who had good batting performance, has settled on first base to constantly field players. However, as his limitations in defense were finally revealed, Kim is facing a situation to end his experiment.

“Since Kim Tae-yeon is from third base, I thought that if she enters the first base, her infield defense will be more solid,” Kim said. However, I had to think about Eun-sung’s slow foot in the outfield. Also, her physical strength needs to be reduced, but that also affects her. I have played first base, and since she is tall, first base is not bad. Also, Kim Tae-yeon is good at defense in the outfield,” he said. “We have decided to take turns taking Kim as right fielder and Chae as designated hitter along with An Chi-hong.”

As mentioned above, Kim joined the pro league as an infielder. However, Noh Si-hwan settled down as a substitute at the third base, and after returning to the military, he tried to switch to the outfield from the end of the 2021 season. Still, he was often deployed to the first base rather than the outfield, but he is expected to meet Kim and start full-time as an outfielder.
