SSG Landers head coach Kim Won-hyung hailed the recent performance of big-hitting prospect Jeon Eui-san, who is expected to lead the team’s batting lineup in the future. Speaking ahead of the team’s game against the Doosan Bears at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on Sunday, Kim said, “Jeon has been handling himself a lot better lately when faced with two strikes. His strikeouts have also increased and he has improved a lot.” In the previous day’s game against Doosan in Jamsil, Jeon hit a game-winning home run off Park Chi-kook in the eighth inning of a 5-5 tie, and in the ninth inning, he picked up a push ball from Doosan closer Jung Chul-won to help the Bears win 7-5.It was the grounder to Chung that caught Kim’s eye.In a two-ball, one-strike at-bat, Jeon swung wildly at a forked ball from Chung and missed a forked ball on the same pitch, then picked off a fastball on a full count. Kim said, “It’s okay that I took a full swing there (considering the impact on the pitcher facing Jeon). If you throw a good forkball, you can swing and miss. He didn’t get fooled by the same pitch after that and eventually walked,” Kim recalled. Jeon went 1-for-2 with a home run, two RBIs and three walks the day before. It was his first career three-strikeout game .After batting eighth the previous day, Jeon moved up two spots in the batting order to bat sixth against Doosan .Pitchers facing Jeon must have anxiety in the back of their minds because he is a “hit or miss” player .”If he hits a triple, he’s a very scary hitter, and if he hits a double, he’s a very scary hitter,” Kim said, referring to Yang Jun-hyuk, a commentator who was once known as the “God of Sunghuan”.”He has a similar body type to Uh San-i,” Kim said. When I played against him, he would throw balls that would fall off his knees, and I was scared because he had that kind of vision.” “I think it’s a process that Eui-san is going through as 카지노사이트킹 well,” Kim said.
