The number 4 hitter was changed.
Nick Williams, a foreign hitter for the Hanwha Eagles, will step up as number 4. On the 18th, Chae Eun-seong was named in the starting lineup for the Daejeon KT Wiz match. Chae Eun-seong starts from the bench. Kim In-hwan returns to the first team and will play No. 6-1 baseman. Kim Tae-yeon will play as number 5 and third baseman, and Noh Si-hwan will play as number 3 and designated hitter.
It is a desperate measure.토토사이트
Chae Eun-seong played full-time throughout the season. There was a hamstring injury. It is a difficult situation physically. I couldn’t rest properly and continued to play. Because of this, the batting quality has decreased significantly in the second half of the season, especially recently.
In the last 10 games, he had 7 hits in 36 at-bats, a batting average of .194, 1 home run, and 6 RBIs. As a number 4 hitter, this is a very disappointing result. In 74 games in the first half, he recorded a batting average of .291 (84 hits in 289 at-bats), 11 home runs, 47 RBI, and an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.820. In the second half of the season, he hit just .202 (35-for-159), 6 home runs, and 23 RBI in 42 games.
He went 3.333 (27-for-81) in the first half with runners in scoring position, and went .206 333 (27-for-81) in the second half.
His season batting average fell to .266 (119 hits in 448 at-bats).
Manager Choi Won-ho said, “Chae Eun-seong is very tired. Today, I plan to bring her in as a pinch hitter in the second half of the game.”
Hanwha, which is on a 4-game losing streak, trained independently before the game on the 18th. We are now two games out of a nine-game series from hell.
