Final mock test for two days from the 6th

2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) Ha-seong Kim (28, San Diego Padres) and Tommy Hyeon-su Edman (28, St. Louis Cardinals), who will form a keystone combination, the core of the defense, as the “unique” major leaguers of the Korean national team, were given heavy responsibility in the batting line. The two players, who have both slugging power and mobility, are expected to play the role of serving as table setters, setting the table, and at the same time connecting opportunities created in the lower batting line to scoring.먹튀검증

The Korean baseball team, led by coach Lee Kang-cheol, left for Japan on the 4th. Director Lee said at a press conference before leaving the country, “I feel the infinite glory, responsibility, and various weights, but I will prepare well to bring about good results.”

On the 5th, the national team briefly warmed up for about 1 hour and 30 minutes at Maishima Buffaloes Stadium, the 2nd team stadium of the Orix Buffaloes located in Osaka, and then returned to their lodgings. On the 6th, they will have a practice game against the Orix Buffaloes at Kyocera Dome in Osaka, and at noon on the 7th, against the Hanshin Tigers, before moving to Tokyo, the final match.

Coach Lee is still thinking about mound management, such as the selection for the game against Australia on the 9th, but it seems that the main batters have roughly decided. Before his departure, he said, “The batting order is almost decided,” and “depending on the type of opposing starting pitcher, one or two may change.”

The exact batting order was not disclosed, but the batting order Lee drew of ‘Kim Hye-seong – Oh Ji-hwan – Lee Jeong-hoo – Kim Hyun-soo – Park Byung-ho – Kang Baek-ho – Yang Eui-ji – Na Seong-beom – Choi Jeong’ shown in the practice match against the SSG 2nd team held at Gocheok Dome on the 3rd. expected as a sketch. Major leaguers Kim Ha-seong and Edmund are not allowed to participate in matches other than official WBC practice matches. Considering that Kim Hye-sung and Oh Ji-hwan’s main positions are second baseman and shortstop, Edmon and Kim Ha-seong will be used instead of Kim Hye-seong and Oh Ji-hwan in this game.

Edmon and Kim Ha-seong are players who can fully play the role of table setters due to their abilities.

Last season, Edmon showed high-level punching power and quick mobility with a batting average of 0.265, 13 homers, 57 RBIs and 32 steals. Although his on-base percentage dropped somewhat to 0.324, his 32 stolen bases was second in the National League and his steal percentage of 91.4% was first overall. He is a hitter who can pose a threat to the opponent’s battery as long as he gets out. Ha-seong Kim had a batting average of 0.251 last season, 11 homers, 59 RBIs and 12 stolen bases. Kim Ha-seong, who is entering his 3rd year in the big leagues this year, has risen to the top of the major leagues in defense over the past two seasons, but his hitting has not been able to reproduce what he showed in the KBO League. Kim Ha-seong showed off his hot hit qualities with a batting average of 0.306, 30 homers, 109 RBIs and 23 stolen bases in the KBO League in the season immediately before his advance to the major leagues. He is the right person to play the role of ‘strong number 2’ who can solve the problem directly while passing on chances.

Edmund and Kim Ha-seong set the table, and Lee Jung-hoo, who established himself as the KBO League MVP and national team hitter last season, Kim Hyun-soo, a veteran captain who will compete in his 10th international tournament, and Park Byeong-ho, the KBO league home run king last season (35), eat them. how much can it come out The more they come out, the closer they can get to a semi-final or higher for the first time in 14 years since the 2009 WBC.
