LG manager Yeom Kyung-yeop selected Moon Bo-kyung as the new batter 4th

LG Twins infielder Moon Bo-kyung will be in charge of the fourth batter for the time being.

LG manager Yeom Kyung-yeop said, “I thought I should raise Moon Bo-kyung as the fourth hitter from a long time ago,” adding, “I was going to use it as the fourth hitter from next season, but I’ve advanced that period.”안전놀이터

Coach Yeom said, “For the time being, we will play in the order of batting by No. 1 Hong Chang-ki, No. 2 Moon Sung-joo, No. 3 Austin Dean, and No. 4 Moon Bo-kyung.”

LG, which ranked first in the team’s batting average (0.279) last season, fell to fourth place (0.281) this season.

The absolute performance has risen slightly, but it is a bit disappointing considering that this year is the season of Tagotjeo.

Notably, LG has shown poor batting performance recently. LG posted a batting average of 0.244 in 13 games it played since May 20, ranking eighth among the 10 teams.

During this period, only the NC Dinos (0.235) and the Samsung Lions (0.211) have lower team batting average than LG.

Manager Yeom Kyung-yeop decided that the change was necessary, and accordingly, he replaced the fourth batter, the center of the batting order, from the existing Austin to Moon Bo-kyung.

It is Austin’s first time as the third batter since joining LG.

Manager Yeom Kyung-yeop said, “It is a batting order that can maximize Hong Chang-ki and Moon Sung-joo’s on-base ability,” adding, “Moon Bo-kyung will be able to expect growth in terms of long-range power while serving as the fourth batter.”

Catcher Park Dong-won was placed at No. 5 and outfielder Kim Hyun-soo at No. 6, while Koo Bon-hyuk, Park Hae-min and Shin Min-jae were listed at No. 7, 8, and 9.

Oh Ji-hwan, the main shortstop who is out due to injury, will return on the 11th.

Coach Yeom Kyung-yeop said, “Oh Ji-hwan will join the first team tomorrow after playing in the Futures League,” adding, “Oh Ji-hwan will start in the bottom batting order for now.”

Oh Ji-hwan injured another muscle (hamstring) behind his left thigh during recovery after being listed as injured on May 30 due to a sprained right wrist extensor tendon.

Oh Ji-hwan, who had been out of power for more than a month, has played a real game since the 4th after recovering his physical condition.
