KIA broke up with Park Dong-won (LG), who boasted the highest level of power in the KBO League in air defense in the 2022 season. Park Dong-won recorded a batting average of 0.242, 18 homers, 57 RBIs and an OPS of 0.770 in 123 games. In addition, based on the baseball statistics site Statties, WAA was 0.978 for catchers, 2nd for catchers, PASS/9 for 5th with 0.364, and stealing rate 40.3% for 3rd.
This season, the KIA 1st team’s home room will be packed with existing backup Han Seung-taek and Shin Beom-soo, as well as Joo Hyo-sang recruited from Kiwoom. The best scenario is when Han Seung-taek plays as a full-time starting pitcher while other catchers work together to fill the gap left by Park Dong-won.
Even so, there is a possibility that the power and productivity of the KIA home this season will be lower than in previous years. Instead, if the other center line members show good productivity in offense and defense, they can make up for the 카지노 weakness in the home. Even in the 2022 season SSG alone, the home power was at the bottom of the league, but with the support of pitchers and fellow fielders, they won the combined championship.
In the 2023 season, the KIA center line will change only the main catcher. The Park Chan-ho-Kim Sun-bin keystone combination and center fielder Socrates Brito are expected to remain unchanged. Park Chan-ho set a career high with a batting average of 0.272 in 130 games last year. After his 2014 debut, he finally woke up to blows. He recaptured the stolen base king with 42 stolen bases. He committed 22 errors on defense, but his skill itself is the best in the league.
There was an evaluation that Kim Sun-bin’s footwork slowed down in her 30s. In fact, looking at the secondary stats, Kim Sun-bin’s defense was not the highest among second basemen in the league. It wasn’t even a hole. Above all, the batting average of 0.287, 3 homers, and 61 RBIs in 140 games means that hitting is definitely powerful when healthy.
