What would I have done if I hadn’t caught it?
The hottest hitter in the KBO League last week was NC outfielder Kwon Hee-dong (33). 11 hits in 21 at-bats in 6 games, batting average 0.524, 4 RBI, 5 runs, OPS 1.282. With a bit of exaggeration, it is not unreasonable to say that he has already paid for his annual salary. Kwon Hee-dong signed a contract with NC for up to 250 million won a year in the 2022-2023 FA market.
A much smaller amount than the standard non-FA single-year contracts of each team. The contract announcement date was February 27th. It was accomplished at the end of the Tucson spring camp. NC had no intention of signing a contract with Kwon Hee-dong in the first place. In fact, Park Gun-woo and Son Ah-seop, along with foreign hitter Jason Martin, formed the outfield, and Futures free agent Han Seok-hyun, Kim Seong-wook, who returned from military service, and Cheon Jae-hwan were envisioned as backups.
However, Han Seok-hyun has been unable to break through the wall of full-time first team and is down to the second team. Martin took a month off after suffering side pain right after the opening. Kim Seong-wook also had minor injuries. Son Ah-seop and Park Gun-woo also failed to get on the right track from the beginning.
In preparation for this situation, NC eventually eats rice with Kwon Hee-dong again at the Plan C-D level. Kwon Hee-dong has been consistently used in the first team since 2013, when he was former manager Kim Gyeong-moon. He was a right-handed outfielder with one-hit power, so he was not shunned by his predecessors.
As a result, this season coach Kang In-kwon did not forget Kwon Hee-dong and put him in the first team. However, coach Kang regretted the loss of the weight of the batting line after the opening. After the opening, Kwon Hee-dong occasionally talked about how the 2nd division was preparing well. 0.244 batting average, 1 home run, 6 RBIs, 카지노사이트 4 runs scored in 14 Futures League games.
There was no reason not to give Kwon Hee-dong a chance due to Park Seok-min’s injury and the sluggishness of hitters who were supposed to do some work. Park Gun-woo, whose style and role exactly overlap, does his part, but director Kang does not ignore Kwon Hee-dong. In fact, since Kwon Hee-dong is in the first team, he is doing better than when he was playing in the Futures League. 1st in the weekly batting average.
sample is small. It is correct to evaluate with a longer breath. Anyway, if NC hadn’t signed a contract with Kwon Hee-dong, it would have been a big deal. Each team starts with quality left-handed pitchers in the bullpen, and the value of right-handed sluggers is enormous. If Kwon Hee-dong is not pushed out of the first-team competition throughout this season, the one-year 250 million won free agent contract may be recorded as an all-time great contract.
