There are veteran third basemen such as Choi Jeong (SSG Landers), Hwang Jae-gyun (KT Wiz), and Heo Gyeong-min (Doosan Bears), but they are unlikely to play as wild cards with only three players. There is a high possibility that wild cards will be drawn from the pitcher and catcher.
Since the current KBO decided to select players under the age of 24 or less than 3 years old, it should be seen that a young third baseman is selected.
If we look at the candidates based on this season, we can narrow them down to Bo-gyeong Moon (22) of the LG Twins, Dong-hee Han (23) of the Lotte Giants, and Si-hwan Noh (22) of the Hanwha Eagles.
Han Dong-hee can be said to be a geopo. He is seen as a ‘post-Lee Dae-ho’ at Lotte and is growing by giving opportunities to participate steadily. 메이저사이트 He batted 3.7 this season (140 hits in 456 at-bats) with 14 home runs and 65 RBIs. He has a good bat, but his defense is unstable. As a third baseman, he pitched 975 innings, allowing 19 errors. So, there is an opinion that it would be better for him to become a first baseman, but it is not easy in reality because Lotte has a lot of first base resources.
Moon Bo-kyung took the starting third baseman position this season, beating veteran senior Kim Min-seong and foreign batters Rio Ruiz and Mabel Garcia. In 126 games he played, he posted a batting average of . It is evaluated that he is quite good at defense. As a third baseman, he pitched 749 innings, allowing just four errors.
Roh Si-hwan hit 18 home runs last year and scored 84 RBIs, drawing attention as the next-generation fourth hitter. As a third baseman, he had 7 errors in 594⅔ innings pitched.
Since the Asian Games entry only has 24 players, he cannot include many fielders. So his batting skills are important, but equally important is his defensive skills.
In the end, it is highly likely that selection and elimination will be decided based on the results of next season rather than this season. It may also be considered that only a minimum of one and a maximum of three per team can be selected.
