KIA formed a starting lineup with Lee Chang-jin (right fielder), Ko Jong-wook (designated hitter), Kim Do-young (third baseman), Socrates Brito (center fielder), Kim Sun-bin (second baseman), Lee Woo-sung (left fielder), Byun Woo-hyuk (first baseman), Kim Tae-gun (catcher), and Park Chan-ho (striker) against Changwon NC on the 26th.
KIA’s batters lost four key players from the match against Samsung in Daegu on the 12th to the match against KT in Gwangju on the 24th, including Park Chan-ho (left fourth finger ligament), Choi Won-joon (Hangzhou Asian Games), Na Sung-bum (left hamstring), and Choi Hyung-woo (clavicle). Choi Won-joon will return after the Asian Games final on the 7th of next month, but Na Sung-bum and Choi Hyung-woo are out for the season. 토토사이트
Fortunately, Park Chan-ho (28) returns to the starting lineup and will play normally from this day. Park has been in batting training since last week. Coincidentally, with Park Chan-ho out, the team is falling to 1 win and 9 losses in the last 10 games. Park was placed in the ninth batting order.
Meanwhile, Kim Seok-hwan was called up in the absence of Hwang Dae-in. In 79 Futures League games this season, Kim Seok-hwan had 82 hits in 267 at-bats, a batting average of 0.307, 18 homers, 73 RBIs, 48 runs batted in, 0.413 slugging percentage of 0.573 OPS, 0.986 in the Futures League. He ranked first overall in homers, RBIs, third in slugging percentage, sixth in on-base percentage, eighth in batting average, and tied for ninth in runs scored.
Director Kim Jong-kook said, “Chan-ho got better after the examination yesterday. The symptoms have improved. They say it’s okay, but I think we’ll have to wait and see. I’ve been in batting training since last week,” he said. “I think Socrates should do some work at the center line. Jongwook, Changjin, and Woosung should do it in general. I ordered him to prepare for a situation where he would not have many home runs and he would not have consecutive hits. “I think I should use good players.”
