The transfer students who changed their uniforms are raising their pace from the spring camp. It already feels like it will be a win-win trade.
On November 10 of last year, KIA and Hanwha made the first offseason trade. KIA traded pitchers Han Seung-hyuk (30) and Jang Ji-su (23) to Hanwha on the condition of receiving infielder Byun Woo-hyuk (23). The trade was made because the needs of KIA, which needed reinforcement of the batting line, and Hanwha, who were looking for a fastball pitcher, met. Expectations for the trade effect are growing on both sides from the spring camp preparation process. 토토사이트
The potential of Byun Woo-hyuk, who joined Hanwha as the first nomination in 2019 but failed to blossom, is wriggling at KIA. On the 20th of last month (hereafter Korean time), which was his first real match, in a practice match against the national team of the World Baseball Classic (WBC) in Arizona, USA, he hit a home run to Lee Eui-ri and began to break the shell.
Even after moving to Okinawa, Japan, he is continuing a good trend with 3 hits in 9 at-bats, 1 RBI and 2 walks in 3 practice games. In the match against Samsung on the 1st, both hits were decorated with double hits, and in the match against Lotte on the 3rd, he succeeded in multi-on-base with 1 hit and 1 walk. On the 5th, Samsung Electronics also came out as a substitute and walked, going on base in 4 consecutive games.
He showed a sense of stability in the first base defense and jumped into the competition for the starting position at once. Hwang Dae-in, first baseman, and Choi Hyung-woo, designated hitter, are threatening the position. He himself said, “It feels like starting over while transferring. The trade motivated me. KIA wanted me, and it gave me a pleasant sense of responsibility,” he said, revealing his will.
