Professional baseball LG Twins rookie outfielder Kim Hyeon-jong (19) joins the first team entry for the opening game.

LG coach Yeom Kyung-yeop met with reporters ahead of the KBO exhibition game against KT Wiz at Suwon KT Wiz Park on the 10th and praised Hyun-jong, saying, “For now, we are going to bring (Kim) Hyun-jong to the first team’s opening entry,” adding, “He is a player who is still growing.” .

Outfielder Kim Hyeon-jong, who graduated from Incheon High School, was selected 18th overall in the second round by LG in last year’s rookie draft.

As LG brought in Choi Won-tae and sent a first-round pick for the 2024 season to the Kiwoom Heroes, Kim Hyun-jong is in fact LG’s No. 1 rookie player this season. 파워볼사이트

Considering the situation in LG’s outfield, which is full of left-handed hitters, right-handed hitter Kim Hyun-jong is a candidate to become LG’s starting center fielder in the future.

Kim Hyun-jong, who joined LG’s spring camp held in Arizona, USA, drew attention early on by performing well with a batting average of 0.517 (8 hits in 14 at-bats) in practice games.

And in the KBO exhibition game against Suwon KT on the 9th, he had 1 hit in 2 at bats and 1 stolen base.

Coach Yeom made a specific plan to keep Kim Hyun-jong in the first team for about a month from the opening game.

Coach Yeom said, “The goal is to build up your confidence to the point where you can take the second team lightly by being in the first team for about a month.” He added, “Our team has nine starting fielders, so there are few opportunities to leave the first team. Kim Hyun-jong spent a month in the first team. “I want to build my youthful mental strength and gain experience in the second team,” he explained.

In addition, Director Yeom expressed his intention to nurture Kim Hyun-jong looking forward three years.

He explained, “I have no expectations at all about how much Hyunjong will contribute to our team this season. What is important is what he shows later.” 온라인 슬롯
