Lotte catcher Yoo Kang-nam, with heavy shoulders, returns to the first team after 15 days

Scheduled to register for the first team ahead of the Kiwoom match in Busan on the 30th

Professional baseball Lotte Giants starting catcher Yoo Kang-nam (31) returns to the first team after 15 days.

Lotte plans to add Yoo Kang-nam, infielder Oh Seon-jin (34), and infielder Jeong Dae-seon (19) to the first team for the home game against Kiwoom Heroes to be held at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 30th.

Yoo Kang-nam, who was downgraded to the second team on the 15th, will play in the first team again after 15 days.

Previously, on the 29th, catcher Jeong Bo-geun (24), infielder Han Dong-hee (24), and outfielder Hwang Seong-bin (26), who had guarded the home field in place of Yoo Kang-nam, were expunged from the first team.

Lotte, currently in 10th place, 1.5 games behind KT Wiz in 9th place, is confirmed to end April in last place.

Lotte played two of three games against SSG Landers last week and was balanced with 1 win and 1 loss.

However, they lost all 3 consecutive games against NC Dinos in the weekend 'Nakdong River Derby'. 메이저사이트

They started the season ambitiously by appointing 'master' manager Kim Tae-hyung, but their bat shows no signs of recovery and they are at the bottom with 8 wins, 20 losses, 1 draw, and a winning percentage of 0.286.

For Lotte to rebound, the so-called 'FA trio' including Yoo Kang-nam, Noh Jin-hyuk (34), and Han Hyun-hee (30) must survive.

Among them, Han Hyun-hee appears to be coming back to life little by little, recording one inning of no runs in the game against Changwon NC on the 27th.

Noh Jin-hyuk, who has not been able to get out of a slump with a batting average of 0.154, returned to the first team on the 23rd, but was expunged from the first team again on the 28th, five days later.

Lotte, which is unable to find any tricks to regain its scoring ability, hopes that Yoo Kang-nam will return to his form from last season.

Yoo Kang-nam's first-team batting performance this season is a batting average of 0.122 (5 hits in 41 at-bats) and an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.363.

Ahead of this season, he worked hard to prepare by modifying his batting stance, but it has not yet shown any results.

Even after being sent down to the Futures League, he performed poorly with a batting average of 0.143 (1 hit in 7 at-bats).

Inside the club, it is predicted that Yoo Kang-nam, who has lost confidence, will need more time to regain his skills, but while Yoo Kang-nam was away, Jeong Bo-geun, who was the starting player, was sent down to the second team and returned earlier than expected.

Lotte will play a three-game series against Kiwoom this week at home, and then move to Daegu from the 3rd of next month to play a three-game series on the weekend against the Samsung Lions.

Lotte, whose gap has widened to 12 games with the 1st place KIA Tigers and 7 games with the 5th place LG Twins, is expected to have an even more difficult season if they do not rebound this week. 안전 슬롯사이트
