Samsung manager Park Jin-man first proposed a trade to our coach.”
The trade between Ryu Ji-hyuk and Kim Tae-gun between KIA and Samsung on the 5th is a case in which discussions between head coach Kim 토토 가입머니 즉시지급Jong-kook and head coach Park Jin-man took shape, leading to confirmation by working-level officials and leaders. Ryu Ji-hyuk and Kim Tae-kyun’s case were slightly different in that the KBO League trade these days is often led by the general manager with working-level officials.
Shim Jae-hak, head of KIA, talked on the phone on the 5th. If this is true, Samsung moved both big trades first this year. Kim Tae-hoon and Lee Won-seok + 2024 Rookie Draft’s second round nomination trade with Kiwoom on April 27 was also a deal that Samsung contacted Kiwoom first.
Who brings up the subject first is not that important. The most important thing is whether the transaction itself is completed and succeeded according to each other’s needs. However, if Samsung moved to get Kim Tae-hoon and Ryu Ji-hyuk first, it should be considered that they still have a firm sense of goal for their performance.
Samsung is on the verge of finishing at the bottom for the first time since its foundation this season. The first half is not over yet, and many schedules await in the second half. However, there is no easy team in the middle when it comes to coldness. It has already been pushed back by six games by ninth-ranked KIA, and the recent momentum of sixth- to eighth-ranked Kiwoom, KT, and Hanwha is better than any other top-ranked team.
The lineup is not working, the bullpen has collapsed, and the defense is unstable. He hurriedly gave up Lee Won-seok and brought Kim Tae-hoon, but so far, it has had little effect. Kim Tae-hoon has two wins, three losses, two saves, and a five-hold ERA of 7.80 in 33 games this year, and one win, three losses, two saves, and a two-hold ERA of 8.46 in 25 games after moving to Samsung, while Lee Won-seok will play in Kiwoom from June after going through the adjustment in May.
However, he had no choice but to try to trade again. As a result, Ryu Ji-hyuk seems to fill the gap between Lee Won-seok and Lee Won-seok. Ryu Ji-hyuk is a contact heater that can play all infield positions and can reach 30%. However, in a way, there is a sense of taking advantage of the advantage of being a catcher kingdom too late. There is also an external assessment that if the deal was made in the off-season and early season, it would have received more benefits than Ryu Ji-hyuk. At this point, Samsung is in a hurry, and it should be said that he got a batter named Ryu Ji-hyuk because he is the main catcher Kim Tae-gun.
For Samsung, Ryu Ji-hyuk must succeed first. There is a good chance. In 67 games this season, he has a batting average of 0.269 18 RBIs, 29 points, and an OPS of 0.663. After hitting .300 all season, he was sluggish with a batting average of .203 in 22 games in June. Still, it is likely to rebound to a batting average of 0.273 in three games in July. Although the body seems to be slightly lifted at the heating point, it is evaluated that it makes a sophisticated hit in its own way. He recently took the second baseman to fill the gap of Kim Sun-bin in KIA, but he is basically familiar with the third baseman. The first baseman is also available.
To be sure, even if Ryu Ji-hyuk succeeds, there is no guarantee that Samsung will escape the bottom. But I couldn’t stay still. As such, Samsung is not working out this season, and on the other hand, it is a desperate season.
