Lotte Peters showed an exciting look in the match between Lotte and KT of the 2022 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at KT Wiz Park in Suwon, Gyeonggi-do, on the afternoon of the 3rd.
Peters, who started as an outfielder, looked innocent, chewing gum leisurely in the third base dugout to prepare for the game. The 26-year-old Peters is 202 centimeters tall and has a perfect physique at 109 kilograms. 스포츠토토탑
Peters was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the fourth round of the 2016 draft. In the minor leagues, he boasted a strong power to hit nearly 30 home runs every year, but he was also struck out a lot, so he needed contact skills.
Peters entered the KBO League in December 2021 with a $680,000 contract with Lotte and entered the country with his wife in time for spring camp.
As of the 9th, Peters has a batting average of 0.205, four home runs (11th), 24 hits, 16 RBIs (17th), and three stolen bases.
In the game against the KT Wiz on the 3rd, he played as the 6th batter and center fielder and hit 2 hits in 3 at-bats. He hit a two-run home run against KT’s So Hyung-joon at second base with one out in two seconds. He hit a walk in the top of the fourth inning, an infield grounder in the top of the sixth inning, and a left-handed hit in the top of the eighth inning.
In a match against Samsung at Sajik Baseball Stadium on the 7th, he showed his power to hit the fence directly against Buchanan with two outs in the top of the sixth inning, trailing 1-3. Lotte manager Sutton said, “Peters are gradually adapting to the KBO League.”
