Lee Jung-hoo, the unfortunate 1st pick who raised the ranks of stars, will we protect the Gocheok outfield together next year?

Will Kiwoom Heroes outfielder Lim Byeong-wook stir up the Gocheok Dome outfield next year?

On the 12th, Kiwoom recruited infielder Addison Russell as a new foreign hitter. An infielder filled the gap left by outfielder Yasiel Puig this year. The Kiwoom infield is expected to be composed of Kim Hye-seong, Russell, Kim Hui-jip, and Shin Jun-woo, forming various keystone combinations.

The problem is outfield. In this year’s Kiwoom, center fielder Lee Jung-hoo and right fielder Puig were almost built-in, while Lee Yong-gyu and Kim Jun-wan split the left fielder. With Puig’s departure, Lee Jung-hoo is the only outfielder who has defended over 500 innings this year.

Kiwoom’s reliable corner is outfielder Lee Hyeong-jong, newly recruited as a Futures free agent, and first-choice outfielder Lim Byung-wook, who was discharged from business last September. Despite being a free agent with Futures, Lee Hyung-jong signed a contract for 4 years and 2 billion won, showing Kiwoom’s expectations. And Lim Byung-wook is also evaluated that it is time for his potential to explode.

Lim Byung-wook played more than 100 games for the first time in 2016 and was scheduled to play from the opening game in 2017, but suffered an 토토사이트 elbow injury during an exhibition game. The spot was filled by Lee Jung-hoo, a rookie who just joined. It was a brutal injury to Lim Byung-wook, but Lee Jung-hoo was able to rise to the rookie of the year as he quickly took over his place from the opening game.

Lim Byeong-wook returned in June, but suffered a ligament rupture in his thumb while sliding again in July, and only played 21 games for the first team that year. A leader from Kiwoom later regretted Lim Byung-wook’s injury at the time, saying, “That’s why injury is a player’s skill. If he is away, anyone can hit and come in.”

Lim Byung-wook, who seemed to be blooming again with 13 homers and a batting average of 0.293 in 134 games in 2018, felt the wall again in 2019 with 0 home runs and a batting average of 0.243 in 117 games. .

In Sangmu, he showed good condition by recording 66 hits in 221 bats (7 homers) and 42 RBIs with a batting average of 0.299 in 70 games over two seasons. In particular, his slugging percentage rose to 0.514 this year. At the time of the first nomination, the position has changed from Geopo shortstop, which Kiwoom expected, but there is a possibility to blossom the long hitting power.

Lim Byeong-wook himself was very tired from the continuous injury and lengthy rehabilitation after joining the professional team. The two-year business life, where you can try your own baseball to your heart’s content instead of the warlike first team, must have been an opportunity to refresh yourself. Attention is focusing on whether Lim Byung-wook will be able to swiftly defend the outfield of Gocheok Dome next year with Lee Jung-hoo.
