Doosan coach Seung-yeop Lee asked Kim Jae-hwan, the ‘4th hitter’ of the professional baseball Doosan Bears who is going through a rough time, to work harder.

Kim Jae-hwan was excluded from the starting lineup for the Kiwoom Heroes match to be held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 7th.

Kim Jae-hwan’s exclusion from the starting lineup is the second consecutive game following the game against Jamsil LG Twins on the 4th.

This is the first time that Kim Jae-hwan has been missing from the starting lineup for two consecutive games this season.

On this day, Kiwoom’s left-handed pitcher Jong-min Lee will take the mound as the starting pitcher.

Kim Jae-hwan, whose batting average for the season fell to 0.224 due to no hits in the last five consecutive games, was left out of the starting lineup when the opponent started with a left hand.

This is a cold reality that he, who is supposed to take on the number 4 position as the team’s main hitter, must accept.

Manager Lee said, “It’s not that Kim Jae-hwan’s pace has dropped, but when he’s at bat, a lot of good balls come in. To be precise, it’s not good balls, but balls that fit the automatic judgment system (ABS) perfectly.”

This season, Kim Jae-hwan struck out 49 times in 151 at-bats and walked into the dugout once every three at-bats.

He has 7 home runs, the second most on the team after Kang Seung-ho (9), but his hitting accuracy is very poor.

Coach Lee said, “In the end, you have to overcome it yourself. The ideal for our team is to have Jaehwan take on the role of batsman number 4. We have to try until (his skills) come back somehow.” 스포츠토토
