“Jihyeok is easy~” The 29-year-old KIA’s multi-man’s unexpected charm? Samsung’s confidence, I saw this 

“Ji-hyeok easily raises the RBI.”

Samsung acquired Ryu Ji-hyeok (29) through trade and used it in four games. Ryu Ji-hyeok’s performance was 2 hits, 3 RBIs, 4 runs, 1 walk and 1 stolen base in 13 at-bats. There are not many hits, but RBIs and runs are more than hits. Manager Park Jin-man highly values ​​Ryu Ji-hyeok’s ability to produce RBIs.

Ryu Ji-hyuk, who joined Doosan in 2012, has a batting average of 0.270, 12 home runs, 205 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.670 in 791 games. In the past two years, he averaged more than 2.7 pennies, and this season in the KIA, he had a high batting average of more than 30% until early June.온라인카지노

And, as always on defense, his greatest strength is that he can play all positions in the infield. At KIA, he saw all positions except shortstop. In fact, in the early days of Doosan, I saw a lot of shortstop backups. He was a defensive infielder and his feet were a bit fast, but as time passed, he gained strength in hitting.

Coach Park Jin-man even pays attention to Ryu Ji-hyeok’s RBI rather than his average. Ahead of the KIA game in Gwangju on the 11th, “What we always lacked was the ability to score runs from chances. If the runner was on third base, there were many cases where I couldn’t score an RBI.” In fact, the clutch ability of Samsung’s lineup is not good in the league.

Manager Park Jin-man said, “He has not played a few games, but he is a player with such points that solves the lack of RBI. He’s also capable of making sacrifice flies, even if he doesn’t necessarily hit. He easily and easily raises RBIs in the middle of the game and doesn’t lose the flow.” In fact, on the 8th and 9th, the Changwon NC Game also produced an RBI with a sacrifice fly in the second half.

When a player changes teams, the environment around them changes, so they need time to adapt, and sometimes it takes time for their skills to come out. However, when the team changes and the leaders watching around them change, they discover these unique strengths and charms and are highly evaluated. KIA was also well aware of Ryu Ji-hyeok’s RBI production capacity. However, it is true that KIA has mainly used Ryu Ji-hyeok as a table setter.

Samsung also currently uses Ryu Ji-hyeok as the first baseman instead of Oh Jae-il, who is out due to injury. He paid attention to his unique multi-position ability. Here, we are paying attention to the RBI production capacity, and we are going to use it more widely. For Ryu Ji-hyeok, it may be an opportunity to experience another baseball game at Samsung and broaden the spectrum of baseball. It is also a good effect of trade.

Manager Park Jin-man said, “Ji-hyeok has a lot of experience, so he is good at batting and defending. Our team has the ability to fill in the gaps. He’s a player with clutch ability, so I’m looking forward to it. There are not enough players who do their part when it is important, but Jihyeok is doing well.”
