“It’s an item.” There was only praise for 4.6 billion compensation players…I’ve been waiting for the failed moment, why?
Doosan Bears infielder Park Joon-young (26) had no choice but to be praised since he was called up to the first division for the first time on the 7th. At the end of the first half, starting third baseman Huh Kyung-min filled the vacancy well when he needed a break due to an injury, and flew around at-bat. He had a batting average of 0.467 (7 hits in 15 at-bats), one home run, and eight RBIs in five games until the 21st. The productivity of long balls was so excellent that the slugging rate reached 1.133, and even though he joined belatedly, he contributed quite a lot to Doosan’s 11-game winning streak.
Doosan manager Lee Seung-yeop said, “Park Joon-young is waiting for failure when he is on the road to success.” It meant that he wanted to confirm his potential to take a position in the team in the long run, not a player who glitters for a while. This is why third baseman Huh Kyung-min continued to use Park Joon-young as a starting shortstop to test his potential.
Park Joon-young came to Doosan as a compensation player for catcher Park Se-hyuk, who moved to the NC Dinos for four years and 4.6 billion won ahead of this season. After graduating from Gyeonggi High School, he was a pitcher when he joined NC in 2016 as the first nomination, and it was from the 2020 season that he turned into a fielder in earnest due to his chronic poor elbow. He is not experienced as a fielder on the professional stage, so he needs to be confirmed continuously.
Coach Lee said, “When Park Joon-young played for NC, I only heard rumors that he was a rising star.” I was in good shape when I was rehabilitating in the second division due to a shoulder injury (after coming to Doosan). I liked the report even when I started batting. Head coach Junghoon Lee said, “I think a very good player has come,” and “I think it’s an object.”
“It’s a relief if you’ve gained confidence (with good performance in the first division), but you have to try to fail once. He has been showing only good performance in every game since he came to Doosan, and when he made a mistake and stepped down from the chance, he will have to see the play next. I want to see if I will be depressed because I failed, and how I will respond to important situations. “If that goes well, I think I’ll be a very good player,” he added.
It didn’t take long to confirm the failure. Park Joon-young began to make mistakes in detailed play when he moved to shortstop, who was certainly burdened with defense. In the game against Lotte Giants in Jamsil on the 25th, Yoo Kang-nam’s ground ball was handled after two outs in the first inning He made a throw error to first base. There was no need to hurry because Yoo Kang-nam’s foot was not fast, but it was the result of failing to throw the ball strongly to the first baseman while rushing to throw the ball behind the port. Since then, there has been no situation in which the defense has collapsed, but he has been silent with no hits in four at-bats at bat.
Coach Lee said, “A little difficult batting went, but I think I was embarrassed. He didn’t have much sense of play, so he went out as a third baseman rather than a shortstop. It’s not too upsetting. “I showed a bad performance yesterday (25th), so I’ll see what I’ll look like today,” he said, expressing his intention to continue to trust and use him.
Park Joon-young also got a chance to start as the eighth batter shortstop against Lotte in Jamsil on the 26th. I must have wanted to make up for it on this day, but it wasn’t the same as my heart. At the top of the second inning, Park Seung-wook hit a ball that fell to the right of the left fielder with one out and runners on first base. It could have been a ball that could have been blocked with one out and runners on first and second bases, but shortstop Park Joon-young failed to determine whether the left fielder would throw to second base or third base, making Lotte runners one out and second and third base.
Kim Tae-hyung, a baseball commentator, said, “Park Joon-young had to decide whether to catch the second baseman or the third baseman, but he stayed still. I didn’t mean to throw either. “I don’t think he even thought that the first baseman would go to second base,” he pointed out.
Since then, Doosan has lost 2-7 in the aftermath of starting pitcher Kwak Bin’s four runs in the top of the second inning alone, ending its 11-game winning streak. Park Joon-young remained silent on the day with no hits in three at-bats at bat. In the bottom of the third inning, the ball that hit the first at-bat well was blocked by second baseman An Chi-hong’s good defense and was not released.
Now, all we have to do is see how Park Joon-young will shake off the disappointment of the last two games. Coach Lee watched the situation by giving Park Joon-young a chance to play until the end of the game even if he made a mistake. 스포츠토토
Coach Lee said, “I’m still a young player, and it’s hard to find all the joys and sorrows in one game.” When he shows bad performance, he is a young and inexperienced player, so he has no choice but to go on for a day. The only thing that can rebound is at-bat, but if the opposing pitcher throws a good ball, he can hit no hits in three at-bats and no hits in four at-bats. Park Joon-young’s personality and ability to solve the game will be recognized only after watching the game today (26th). “I’m looking forward to today,” he said. Now that we have confirmed the long-awaited failure, we wonder what kind of judgment coach Lee would have made.
