Kim Hye-seong (24), the nucleus of Kiwoom’s infield, vacated second base for a day.
On the 25th, Kim Hye-seong started as the designated hitter against Suwon KT. It is the first time Kim Hye-seong has played as a designated hitter since the Lotte game on August 12 last year.
Kiwoom coach Hong Won-ki explained, “I thought I should take care of the players’ stamina.”
On this day, Song Seong-moon played as the second baseman. It is also the first time in two years since the Gwangju KIA match on October 30, 2021 that Song Seong-moon started as a second baseman.
Originally the starting third baseman, Song Seong-moon suffered a fractured right finger right after the start of this season. After completing his rehabilitation, he joined the entry for the first time on the 19th. However, after his return, he started two games as a third baseman, and after appearing as a first baseman before KT on the 23rd and 24th, he was named in the starting lineup as a second baseman on the 25th. During Song Seong-moon’s absence, Kim Hui-jip, who played almost as a shortstop last season, jumped in as the starting third baseman.
Shortstop Russell,스포츠토토 who had not been able to start for the past two days due to family health issues, returned as the 4th shortstop that day, and first baseman Lim Ji-yeol moved to the 2nd batter. got to rest
Coach Hong Won-ki said, “Song Seong-moon is in a state where he needs to increase his attack power a little more. He needs to start consistently, even if he wants to save his hitting.” He will likely change defensive positions frequently to keep starting.
