“I often look for videos of senior Oh Jae-il (Samsung)”
Jeon Eui-san of SSG Landers first stepped on the first team stage in June of last year. Foreign hitter Kevin Cron was sluggish with 1 hit in 23 at-bats in early June, and SSG chose Jeon Eui-san as an alternative resource. Jeon Eui-san proved that SSG’s choice was not wrong. He had 22 hits, 3 home runs, and 17 RBIs for a 0.333 OPS of 1.002 in June. He continued his good hitting feeling in July, finishing the first half with 31 hits, 7 homers, 24 RBIs, a batting average of 0.341 and an OPS of 1.099.
However, Jeon Eui-san began to show a disappointing appearance in the defense in the second half. On August 26, against KT Wiz in Suwon, he made a mistake throwing to second base and shed tears during the game. As Jeon’s mountain faltered in defense, his batting also fell into sluggishness. Eui-san Jeon recorded 29 hits, 6 homers, 21 RBIs, a batting average of 0.193, and an OPS of 0.612 in the second half.
Jeon Eui-san said, “I think there was a mistake in the defense and it was a little shaken at the plate. What I felt once was that I should be good at defense. I am practicing with an emphasis on defense in this spring camp.” I’m trying to forget it, but it seems that there was an effect on the batting as a defensive mistake came out.”
Coach Won-hyeong Kim said, “If Jeon Eui-san improves his defense, he will be able to play as a starter.” It means that the strike ability of Jeonuisan is acknowledged. Manager Kim said, “(Former) Uisan-i always told me, ‘If you play well, you can become a starting player.’ I also told Uisan that there is no way to do well without practicing.” He emphasized the importance of defensive practice.
Jeon Eui-san also knows the importance of defensive training. At the beginning of spring camp, he personally visited defensive coach Sohn Ji-hwan and asked for defensive training. He worked hard on his defensive stance while undergoing additional training with coach Sohn Ji-hwan. Jeon Eui-san said, “I’m paying attention to my defensive posture. My posture has gotten a little lower.”
Jeon Eui-san said that he sometimes refers to the defense video of Samsung Lions first baseman Oh Jae-il. Oh Jae-il, who has a similar physique to Jeon Uisan, is evaluated for his good defense. According to the baseball statistics site ‘Staties’, Oh Jae-il played 949 innings as a first baseman last season and recorded a 5 error defense rate of 0.995. Also, former San said that he listens to a lot of advice from his roommate Choi Joo-hwan. 카지노사이트
Jeon Eui-san said, “I often look for videos of senior Oh Jae-il. He is very good at defending.” “And my roommate is senior Choi Joo-hwan. He also gives me a lot of advice. I see. The senior asked me to come first, so he showed me the video.”
SSG will return to Korea on the 26th after the 1st spring camp held in Vero Beach, Florida, USA. Then, on the 28th, they will go to Okinawa, Japan, and hold the second spring camp. SSG plans to improve their sense of practice by playing practice matches against Lotte Giants, Hanwha Eagles and Samsung in Okinawa. Attention is focusing on whether Jeon Eui-san’s defensive training results will come out.
