“I can’t decide yet.”
The ‘national hitter’ does not yet know satisfaction. Doosan, which has been newly reborn under manager Lee Seung-yeop, is considered a shortstop as one of the ‘fierce battlegrounds’ this year.
In the meantime, ‘genius shortstop’ Kim Jae-ho has been active as an immovable starting shortstop, but Kim Jae-ho has already become a 38-year-old veteran. It is unreasonable to demand the same skills as he did in his prime. The defense still boasts a sense of stability, but the batting average is .209 with 1 home run and 24 RBIs in 2021 and .215 with 1 home run and 21 RBIs last year. Naturally, many opportunities were headed for Ahn Jae-seok, a prospect from the first pick, but Ahn Jae-seok also fell short of expectations last year with a batting average of .213, 3 home runs and 17 RBIs. His batting average dropped sharply from 2021 (batting average .255), which was the first season of his professional debut.
Currently, Doosan has three players, Kim Jae-ho, Ahn Jae-seok, and Lee Yu-chan, continuing to compete for the shortstop position. It is still unknown who will be the main shortstop for Doosan in the 2023 season.
Coach Lee Seung-yeop, ahead of the demonstration game against KT on the 20th, when the topic of starting shortstop came up, he said, “I can’t decide yet. There are three of them, Kim Jae-ho, Lee Yu-chan, and Ahn Jae-seok, but there is no player who jumps out of nowhere. Everyone seems to be stubborn. In fact, my last name. I don’t,” he said. 안전놀이터
Coach Lee Seung-yeop said, “If you want to be the main player, you have to be a little more greedy.” Coach Lee Seung-yeop said, “I can’t play myself. I have no other role than to encourage you. It’s better to support you so that you can play well.” best,” he added. If you have greed as a starter, you have to ‘appeal’ with your polished skills.
Next, coach Lee Seung-yeop said, “Kim Jae-ho is a veteran player with a lot of track record, and Lee Yoo-chan and Ahn Jae-seok are players with great potential.” invisible,” he said.
The shortstop is known as the flower of the infield. So director Lee Seung-yeop is watching more carefully. The reason why he does not hesitate to ‘whip’ the three candidates for shortstop is also because he knows the importance of the position. Coach Lee Seung-yeop said, “I can’t help it because the professional world is a competitive world. I think I need to make a quick decision.” Which player will coach Lee Seung-yeop pick as Doosan’s starting shortstop?
