Samsung has been holding a ’10 home run shortstop’ for a long time. It’s a matter of time. The main character is Lee Jae-hyeon (20), a ‘baby lion’ in his second year. It will be five years since Kim Sang-soo (33, KT). He currently ranks first in home runs among shortstops. ‘Geopo shortstop’ That’s right.
As of the 7th, Lee Jae-hyun has played 95 games for the season, batting average 0.244, 9 homers, 40 RBIs, on-base percentage 0.298, slugging percentage 0.370, and OPS 0.668.
Overall, it’s hard to say it’s an outstanding attack indicator. His overall offensive power stat, wRC+ (Adjusted Rating Production), is also 78.8, the lowest among shortstops who have filled the required at-bats. 100 is average, so if you look at the attack alone, it’s below average.
Instead, the story is different when it comes to home runs. His nine homers are the most among shortstops in the league. He is hitting 3 more than runner-up Kim Joo-won (NC). Even if you expand the range to an infielder, you will be tied for 5th place.
One more hit and it’s a double-digit home run. He has already surpassed the 7 he recorded last year, his debut season. From his first year as a pro, he heard the sound of a ‘geopo shortstop’. His first 10 homers in his debut this year are just around the corner.
Samsung has been participating in the KBO League since the first year. For 42 years, top-notch shortstops have held their positions. There is a genealogy that leads to Oh Dae-seok, Ryu Joong-il, Park Jin-man, and Kim Sang-su. In between, Kim Tae-gyun and Tilson Britto engraved their names.
Basically, defense is an important position. Lee Jae-hyun is also keeping pace with prominent seniors. Even in offense, 10 homers are meaningful. Among the players who inherited the lineage of Samsung shortstops, Kim Sang-soo had a double-digit home run record in the last season. I hit 10 in 2018.
In front of Kim Sang-soo is director Park Jin-man. He hit 11 home runs in 2006. In the modern era, he hit 10 home runs for 5 consecutive years from 2000 to 2004, but after moving to Samsung, he hit only once in 2006.
Lee Jae-hyun is on the verge of making a double-digit cannon in 5 years among Samsung shortstops. He is practically left with only the part about when he comes out. He would hit only one of his remaining 49 games, a record.
The defense, which can be called basic, is already top-notch. He has pitched the most innings (786.2) among all shortstops this season. In WAA (defensive win contribution against average) compiled by statistics site Statties, he is also ranked first among all shortstops with 1.116. He is the only player over 1.000.메이저사이트
Although he lacks accuracy, he is a shortstop who has solid defense and can hit even one shot when necessary. Besides, it is now in its second year. only 20 years old There are endless ways to go further.
Kim Sang-soo’s second year was all with a batting average of 0.245 and a wRC+ of 72.3. Manager Park Jin-man also had a batting average of 0.185 and wRC+ 32.3 in the second year. Rather, it should be seen that Lee Jae-hyun is doing well compared to his annual year.
He spent the primary pick on the fielder in a long time. He was such a good resource and the player the team needed. After gaining a lot of experience points from his debut season, he became the main player in his second year. He is also ready to write a record. If this trend continues, it is expected that he will be proudly placed in the lineage of Samsung shortstops.
