“The agent asked for release.” Can Seo Geon-chang’s new team recover his honor and realize his fourth FA move

LG Twins’ Seo Kun-chang was excluded from the pending list and found a new team. LG announced on the 25th that it excluded 12 players, including Seo Geon-chang and Song Eun-beom, from the deadline for submitting suspended players.

Seo Geon-chang (34) is the most notable player who came out of LG. Seo Kun-chang, who was named MVP with 201 hits in the KBO League in 2014 and the Rookie of the Year in 2012, was responsible for the second base of the Nexen Heroes as a teaching hitter with accuracy.

After the first half of 2021, LG gave up starter Jung Chan-heon and made a one-on-one trade to receive Seo Geon-chang. He recruited a “winning contractor” who would solve the second base position, which was LG’s hole, and lead him to the championship. However, Seo Geon-chang did not perform as well as expected in LG. 토토사이트

Seo Kun-chang, who received the lowest performance since his debut with a batting average of 253, became an FA after the season. Seo Geon-chang, who chose to return to the FA after much consideration, unfortunately suffered a worse blow last year. His batting average has fallen further to .224. Due to sluggishness and injury, he also spent more time in the second division. The second FA opportunity was also missed in the end. Choose FA Samsoo.

This year seemed like a golden opportunity for him. Yeom Kyung-yeop, who worked with the Nexen Heroes, came to LG. Manager Yeom gave Seo a chance to revive by giving him the starting position at second base. Seo Kun-chang, who tried during the winter, raised expectations by ranking first with a batting average of 362 in the exhibition game.

However, Seo Geon-chang was different from the exhibition game in the regular league. He had a batting average of 0.22 percent (18 hits in 81 at-bats) during the month of April. He even made a ridiculous mistake, increasing anxiety in defense. In the end, coach Yeom also made a decision. On 19 May, he went down to the second team. And Shin Min-jae, who was a pinch-runner agent, became the main second baseman with a hit like Altoran and an increasingly stable defense.

Seo Geon-chang returned again during the September expansion entry, but there was no place for him. Seo Geon-chang was not needed for LG, which was already in first place. Seo Geon-chang was not named in the Korean Series entry. Forty-four games, a batting average of .20 (22 hits in 110 at-bats) and 12 RBIs were Seo’s report card for the 2023 season. Seo Geon-chang has been batting .229 (129 hits in 564 times at bat) with four home runs and 54 RBIs for three years since he came to LG.

Also, the FA season has come, but Seo Geon-chang did not apply for FA again this time. Instead, I asked LG to release it.

“The agent Seo Kun-chang asked us to release him,” said Cha Myung-seok, head of LG. “We decided to release Seo Geon-chang and other veterans who are currently having difficulty in getting a chance in our team.” The same goes for Song Eun-beom, and Lee Chun-woong was also more of an opportunity than an illegal gambling problem.”

If a team needs a veteran second baseman, it would be okay to give Seo a chance. Will Seo Geon-chang get his last chance to recover his honor.
