“What would have happened if (Yoon) Dong-hee hadn’t gone?”
Lotte Giants acting manager Lee Jong-woon said in the 13th home game of the season between the teams and the LG Twins in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 4th. Earlier, he smiled brightly at the performance of Yoon Dong-hee, who is hitting hard on the national team at the Hangzhou Asian Games (AG).
Dong-hee Yoon, who was selected 42nd overall in the 2nd 3rd round of the 2022 Rookie Draft and wore Lotte’s uniform, had the joy of being selected to the Hangzhou Asian Games national team after swinging a bat with 106 hits, 2 home runs, 39 RBIs, 41 runs, and a batting average of 0.296 and OPS 0.701 in 100 games this year. I tasted it. Originally, Donghee Yoon was not selected as the final member. However, the KBO Strength Enhancement Committee judged that Lee Ui-ri (KIA Tigers) would not be able to show off his skills due to finger blisters, and selected Dong-hee Yoon as a replacement player.
Initially, Dong-hee Yoon had a very low chance of being appointed as a ‘starter’ in the Asian Games, but he showed off his hot batting ability by playing for Sangmu in an evaluation match against Sangmu Phoenix and scoring ‘multi-hits’, and on the 1st, he played against Hong Kong in the first match of the Group B league. Participated as a starter in the match. Dong-hee Yoon showed off his hot batting ability by recording multiple hits in the match against Hong Kong, and struggled against Taiwan on the 2nd, scoring 3 hits alone.

The good feeling continued. Dong-Hee Yoon also participated in the match against Thailand, the last game of the group stage, the previous day (3rd), and is soaring with 7 hits in 12 at-bats, 1 home run, 5 RBI, 5 runs, and a batting average of 0.583 and OPS of 1.666, including his first arch in the group. He is currently ranked first in various indicators, including the most hits, most bases, and most RBIs in the national team. Acting Director Lee Jong-woon also smiled happily as if he was unaware of Yoon Dong-hee’s performance.
Before the game on the 4th, Acting Manager Lee Jong-woon smiled and said, “What would have happened if (Yoon) Dong-hee hadn’t gone?” and added, “From our perspective, it’s good that (Yoon) Dong-hee went, but as a joke, we took two starters and even Dong-hee, so it was a bit like that. This is because Chi-hong (not) is not in good shape recently. Still, it is good that Dong-hee is doing well. If he had not performed well, there would have been another story, but it is good that he is playing well. If our players do well on the national team and help, it will be good. “It is,” he said, unable to hide his smile.메이저사이트
It is certainly gratifying to see the players playing for the national team performing well, but the road Lotte has to take is difficult. Still, the good news is that ‘Pilseungjo’ Koo Seung-min and Kim Sang-soo both returned to the first team on this day. Kim Sang-soo was recently absent due to a hamstring injury, and Koo Seung-min was absent due to shoulder inflammation. On this day, Lotte called up Kim Sang-soo, Koo Seung-min, Lee In-bok, and Woo Kang-hoon and deleted Choi Young-hwan, Moon Gyeong-chan, Jeong Seong-jong, and Kim Jin-wook.
Acting manager Lee Jong-woon said, “The training part said it was okay, and the players seemed sorry for missing out. They are very responsible players,” and added, “They started pitching two days ago.
Meanwhile, Lotte has Ahn Kwon-soo (right fielder) – Hwang Seong-bin (left fielder) – Jeong Hoon (first baseman) – Jeon Jun-woo (designated hitter) – Noh Jin-hyuk (shortstop) – Yoo Kang-nam (catcher) – Kim Min-seok (center fielder) – Lee Hak-ju (third baseman) – Park Seung-wook (2nd baseman) The lineup was formed in the order of baseman.
