It’s a rainy day at the Gwangju-Kia Champions Field.토스카지노 A player came out in front of the third base dugout and played catch in the rain. It was Hwang Dae-in.
Hwang Dae-in of the KIA Tigers has returned to the first team. Hwang Dae-in joined Choi Jeong-yong in the first team ahead of the LG Twins game on Tuesday at Gwangju-Kia Champions Field. Kim Ho-ryung and Yoon Jung-hyun were designated for assignment.
Hwang Dae-in was released from the first team on July 8 due to a hamstring injury and has been preparing to return to the first team since July 29.
In the Futures League, Hwang went 8-for-21 with eight RBIs in eight games. He didn’t have a home run, but he did have three doubles.
The team is looking forward to seeing what Hwang Dae-in can bring to the table both offensively and defensively, as he is batting 2-for-43 (33-for-166) with three home runs and 22 RBIs in 42 games for the first team this season.
KIA manager Kim Jong-kook said, “The addition of Hwang Dae-in is a reinforcement at first base. I think he’ll help with the batting as well,” he said, adding, “We’re thinking of using Choi Won-jun in the outfield instead of (Kim) Ho-ryung.”
Choi Won-jun has been playing first base recently, but his defense has been lacking. The previous day at LG Electronics, he also made a number of disappointing plays. Coach Kim said, “He has been playing only in the outfield for the past two or three years, so his footwork and handling as a first baseman are a bit lacking. I think there are some areas where he is awkward,” Kim said, adding, “I think he will improve as he trains and plays.”
On the day, KIA’s starting lineup consisted of Kim Do-young (third base), Park Chan-ho (shortstop), Na Sung-beom (right field), Choi Hyung-woo (left field), Socrates (center field), Ko Jong-wook (designated hitter), Hwang Dae-in (first base), Han Jun-soo (catcher), and Kim Kyu-sung (second base). Coach Kim said, “(Choi) Won-joon is also tired from playing full-time. I think I need to give him some physical training. He will wait for the second half today.”
