As the San Francisco Giants of the US Major League became known to be interested in Lee Jung-hoo (25, Kiwoom Heroes), local media also began to pay attention.
The McCovey Chronicle, which covers San Francisco in the American media SB Nation, said on the 5th (Korean time), “San Francisco is interested in KBO superstar center fielder Lee Jung-hoo, who will advance (to the major leagues) with a posting system after this season.”
Salt River Field, located in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA, where Kiwoom is currently staying, is located about 10 minutes by car from the stadium San Francisco uses during spring camp. It was an easy environment for San Francisco scouts to find, and it was confirmed that they had recently observed Lee Jung-hoo.
The McCorvey Chronicle reported this news and said, “It is near impossible to know how Lee Jung-hoo’s KBO record will change (in the major leagues). He struck out 32 at the plate, walked 66 and hit 23 home runs, showing great middle field defense.”
Ha-seong Kim (28, San Diego), a senior of the Heroes and currently active in the major leagues, was an appropriate comparison target. 카지노 The McCovey Chronicle said, “For reference, Ha-seong Kim appeared in 625 at-bats at Lee Jung-hoo’s age, hitting 0.307, 19 home runs, 0.389 on-base percentage, and 0.491 slugging percentage, and while getting 70 walks, he struck out 80. Admittedly, Ha-sung Kim was in the major leagues He wasn’t a particularly good hitter, but he was still a usable hitter.”
He then recommended Lee Jung-hoo’s batting video, saying, “If you want to make someone’s heart flutter more for someone who will never play on the team you support, watch Lee Jung-hoo’s swing.”
San Francisco, which finished third in the National League West with a record of 81 wins and 81 losses last year, is a club that needs talent in all directions. In the outfield, this winter’s free agents Mitch Haniger (33, 3 years, $43.5 million) and Michael Conforto (30, 2 years, 3600 dollars) in addition to the existing Mike Yastrzemski (33), Lamonte Wade Jr. (29), and Zak Pederson (31). 10,000 dollars) is sufficient, but it is regrettable that the accuracy is poor. In addition, Oracle Park, the home stadium of San Francisco, has a wide outfield, so a high level of defense is required even for corner outfielders.
