The New York Post paid attention to Lee Jung-hoo… “Attention to WBC Group B”

The American media New York Post suggested paying attention to Lee Jung-hoo (Kiwoom) at the World Baseball Classic (WBC).

On the 9th (Korean time), the New York Post said, “Please also pay attention to Group B, which the United States does not belong to.” There is,” he said. In addition, “Lee Jung-hoo signed a contract with Boras Corporation, led by large agent Scott Boras. Last year, he had a batting average of 0.349, 23 home runs, and 66 walks while striking out only 32.” After this season is over, Lee Jung-hoo plans to advance into the Major League Baseball (MLB) through the posting system (private competitive bidding).

The New York Post also pointed out Lee Jung-hoo’s weaknesses. The New York Post said, “It is difficult to maintain the performance in Korea in MLB. The only hitters who have performed well in MLB are Choo Shin-soo and Choi.” I’m not used to ‘rapid speed’ yet. Also, my long hitting power is lacking,” said an MLB scout.

It has its weaknesses, but its charm remains. Scout Lee said, “Lee Jung-hoo has some talent. He has the ability to make contact, he has the ability to focus, and he has a good throwing ability. He can do a lot on the ground.” I know how to do it, and I have a good pioneering plan,” he emphasized.

Regarding Yamamoto, he explained that he is “a pitcher who will play an active role as an ace in MLB right away.” Yamamoto recorded 18-5 with an ERA of 1.39 and 206 strikeouts in 2021 and 15-5 with an ERA of 1.68 and 205 strikeouts in 2022, winning four crowns for two consecutive years (most wins, win rate, strikeouts, average ERA) and Pacific League MVP, Sawamura Award. occupied 온라인바카라

An MLB scout said, “Yamamoto does not need to show anything more in Japan now. He is a pitcher with tremendous competitiveness in the major leagues.” He also has top-notch pitches in the big leagues. He is a much better pitcher than Senga Godai (who signed with the New York Mets).”

Lee Jung-hoo is looking forward to the confrontation with Yamamoto. In the 2019 World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) Premier12 final, he struck out three pitches from Yamamoto, who came out as a relief pitch. At that time, Lee Jung-hoo pledged, “If we meet next time, I will definitely take revenge,” and at the Tokyo Olympics held in 2021, Yamamoto, who started the game against Korea, got 2 hits in 3 at-bats. This year’s WBC Korea-Japan match will be held at Tokyo Dome, Japan, at 7:00 pm on March 10th.
