A top-notch prospect who switched positions from an infielder to an outfielder is in trouble again ahead of his military discharge. He is contemplating the survival competition with his thick team depth.
Lee Joo-hyeong (22) of the LG Twins is about to be discharged soon. Lee Joo-hyung, who went to the army on active duty during the 2021 season, will be discharged on the 22nd. During his last vacation, he entered the 2nd group camp held at LG Champions Park in Icheon, and has already devoted himself to building a body to the extent that he went back after undergoing rehabilitation training.
Lee Joo-hyung, who was nominated by LG for the 2nd round (13th overall) in 2020, was a promising player who stood out for both karate and defense during high school.
As an infielder, he competed for the second baseman position after joining LG. However, after playing one season, he attempted to switch positions to an outfielder.
Lee Joo-hyung, whom we met at LG Champions Park in Icheon, said, “I thought about it because I wanted to play in the first team, but I thought that if I played an outfielder, he would be competitive in the first team. He tried playing second baseman and outfielder together, but at the time there were seniors as infield backups, so he changed to outfielder.”
Lee Joo-hyung has batting talent. In his first year of debut in the 2020 Futures League, he batted . Even in 2021, he recorded a batting average of 3.3 in the second team, and then went to the army at an early age during the season. While his first-team performance did not overcome the psychological burden, he was 1.5 0.5 Lee (2 hits in 16 at-bats) in 2021. 카지노사이트
The point at which he is about to return after completing his military service. LG’s in-field depth has changed again. Now the outfield is thicker. Prominent seniors such as Kim Hyun-soo, Park Hae-min, Hong Chang-ki, and Moon Seong-ju are playing. Foreign players are also outfielders.
Lee Joo-hyung said, “I changed to an outfielder and then went to the army, and I thought I would be an outfielder even after returning, but he seems to have to think about it until he is discharged while talking about his position around him.”
Will he come back as an infielder, continue to try out as an outfielder, or try the super utility of playing both infield and infield? In the outfield, he played mainly in center field and right field.
There was also a throwing problem when he switched from playing second base to an outfielder. Lee Joo-hyung said, “I think there was a psychological factor because there were many seniors who did well in the first or second year. After serving in the army, he is now mentally at ease. This season, I have plans to play in and outfield together… ” he said.
Once Lee Joo-hyung is discharged from the military, he plans to build his body step by step with a 3-month rehabilitation program made with LG’s systematic system. He said, “I think I will go to the second team game around May. I want to be in the first team in the second half. And when LG wins, I want to play together (in the first team),” he said of hope.
