LG Twins Lee Jae-won, who hit home runs in the Futures League, is finally on the first team.
LG registered Lee Jae-won in the first team ahead of the match against the Doosan Bears in Jamsil on the 6th and canceled the congratulations.
The moment came when LG coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop said, “I’ll upload it when I’m in good shape.” On April 28, Lee Jae-won had his first real match after injury in the Futures League match against Doosan. On his first day, he recorded only one walk and was hitless in three at-bats, but after a day’s rest, on the 30th against Doosan, he reported his first hit as a home run. In the match 토스카지노 against SSG on the last 2 days, he was only hitless in 5 at-bats, so I thought it would take more time for the feeling of hitting to come up, but it wasn’t. Lee Jae-won, who scored his second hit with a solo shot against SSG on the 4th, recorded his first multi-hit by adding a hit that day, and scored another solo shot against Hanwha on the 5th. He had four hits in five games, three of which were home runs. He proved that he is no longer at the 2nd Army level.
His batting average was 2.5 (4-for-16), but he had three home runs and three walks, putting up a .813 slugging percentage, a .368 on-base percentage, and a 1.181 OPS.
All of LG’s outfield lines, including Kim Hyeon-soo, Park Hae-min, Hong Chang-ki, and Moon Seong-joo, are left-handed hitters, so Lee Jae-won is a right-handed hitter who can balance left and right in the batting line. In addition, batters on the bench can come out as a pinch hitter at critical moments in the latter half of the game, so they can show more powerful offense. Lee Jae-won, who prepared to be first baseman this season, can also help foreign hitter Austin Dean, who is currently the first baseman, manage his physical strength.
With Lee Jae-won coming to the first team, LG has been able to breathe freely in terms of physical strength management and pinch hitters. Now, Jaewon Lee just needs to do well. He has already shown that in District 2 he has nothing more to do. It is Lee Jae-won, who has been crowned the second-team home run king for two consecutive years in 2020 and 2021, but has not yet shown a clear start-up level in the first team. He hit 13 home runs in 85 games last year, signaling that he has the power to hit more than 20 if he plays full-time, but his batting average was low at 2.2 4 Lee. Dealing with Yoo In-gu was not easy.
Coach Yeom revealed his intention to use Lee Jae-won, who was planning to enlist as Sangmu last year, and decide to serve him for one more year through a meeting, so that he can play confidently in the bottom lineup.
His plan is to take on the 7th and 8th numbers with Park Dong-won, who is also a power hitter, to hit a long hit. Yeom said with a smile, “I also want to play ‘Pung Baseball’.” Now, Lee Jae-won and Park Dong-won’s ‘fun baseball’ begins.
