“Corresponding to the breaking ball” AVG .179 foreign hitter, reason for confidence in success

“Has the ability to attack breaking balls”.

LG Twins coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop predicted the possibility of success for foreign batter outfielder Austin Dean (29). Attention is focusing on whether LG will clear up the brutal history of past foreign batters. 

Austin is still sluggish in exhibition games바카라. In six games he appeared in, he went 3-for-17 in 19 at-bats with a batting average of 1.17 and 9. He has no RBI, no doubles and no long hits, including home runs. He walked two and struck out two. OPS is just .439. He hasn’t shown anything yet. 

Director Yeom saw it from a different perspective. “He has the ability to attack a breaking ball. The first thing I always check is his ability to cope with a breaking ball. He must have hit a lot of fast balls over 150km in the US. It’s a problem if you swing too hard on a breaking ball.” 

He continued, “I don’t have a sense of the game yet. I’m positive that my form doesn’t collapse or my swing doesn’t have a big gap with the ball. If I cope with the breaking ball, I can hit more than 27. was the opposite,” he added.

Lastly, he gave a positive evaluation, saying, “He has a good starting point, good selection of the ball that falls to the ground, contact with the ball entering the strike zone, and good timing.” 

Expectations are high, such as sophistication and contact skills, as well as efforts to adapt to the team. It is difficult for foreign hitters to do well from the demonstration game. You need to check the strike zone and learn the characteristics of Korean pitchers who throw manned pitches well. Taesan has to adapt to the team culture and communication with colleagues. 

In the past, LG has not had much fun as a foreign hitter. Last year, Rio Luis and Mabel Garcia were also appointed, but they were sluggish.  

LG is looking forward to the progress of young hitters such as Lee Jae-won, Song Chan-eui and Son Ho-young this year, but the scoring power can increase only when outside hitters perform well.  

Director Yeom Kyung-yeop has a good understanding of improving the ability of hitters. The same goes for foreign hitters. He’ll give Austin plenty of opportunities and help him adapt. With such expectations, the 10% batting average does not seem to be sluggish.
