Kim Tae-hyung can’t help but smile when he talks about Son

Kim Tae-hyung, manager of the Lotte Giants in the Korean Baseball Organization, can’t help but smile when he talks about Son Ho-young, an infielder from LG.

And for good reason. In 28 games, Son is batting .301 (31-for-99) with three home runs, 18 RBIs, 15 runs scored, and six stolen bases. He’s a candle in the dark for Lotte.

Against Sajik Kiwoom on Feb. 2, Son went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer in the fifth inning and a triple in the eighth to help Lotte snap a five-game losing streak.

When Kim Tae-hyung met with the media before the game against Samsung in Daegu on March 3, he laughed at the expression ‘it’s like bringing in a free agent’ and said, “He’s very good. I’m 100% satisfied with his defense. He has good basics and quickness. 카지노사이트 He has a strong bat, so he’s doing a good job. He’s playing beyond expectations.”

The batting lineup has also improved.

“With two left-handers (Ko Seung-min and Na Seung-yup) coming in, the batting pace has improved and we feel more weight,” said Kim Tae-hyung.

Kim Tae-hyung said of Na Seung-yeop, who went 5-for-12 with two RBIs and two runs scored in the three-game series against Kiwoom, “He has improved a lot from the beginning. He will get better if he continues to play consistently. He is a player who should be responsible for Lotte’s center field in the future.” Manager Kim Tae-hyung said he plans to utilize Na Seung-yup as a first baseman to make the most of his batting ability.

Foreign-born Victor Reyes has struggled a bit in his last 10 games, batting 2-for-5 with one home run and six RBIs in 39 at-bats. “His pace has dropped a bit, so I’ll give him a rest once in a while, alternating with Jeon Jun-woo,” 안전놀이터 said manager Kim Tae-hyung, adding, “He says it’s good to play defense, but we know it when we see it.” He also used him as a designated hitter to keep him fresh.

Lotte’s batting order was left fielder Kim Min-seok, second baseman Ko Seung-min, right fielder Victor Reyes, designated hitter Jeon Jun-woo, third baseman Son Ho-young, first baseman Na Seung-yup, center fielder Yoon Dong-hee, shortstop Park Seung-wook, and catcher Yoo Kang-nam. Na Kyun-ahn will start on the mound.
