LG Twins manager Yeom Kyung-yeop is 꽁머니사이트 breaking through with a card as he faced a crisis this season. At every moment of crisis, Yeom’s amazing pinch-runner card is saving the team from the crisis.
First of all, the LG Twins had a lot of regrets at second base this season. I thought of Song Chan-ui, who played a big role in Geelong Korea, but he was not satisfied. There were especially many regrets in defense.
On top of that, as Oh Ji-hwan was injured at the beginning of the season, Kim Min-sung was also forced to turn to second base. Kim Min-sung, who was good at overcoming LG’s crisis in the first half, disappeared from the first division due to a hamstring injury just before the All-Star break. I did my best, but there was a limit to the veteran’s body.
Shin Min-jae is the player who emerged from this crisis.
Shin Min-jae was LG’s pinch-runner at the beginning of the season. However, LG fans criticized him for his lack of base play sense compared to his fast feet. However, he continued to play and gained Yeom’s trust, and at the end of the first half, he even began to show off his explosive blow.
In the past month when he played as a main player, he made full use of his skills by hitting 16 hits in 40 at-bats and stealing six bases. While stealing six bases, he failed to steal only two bases. There was not a single double play. The OPS reached 0.892 points.
In addition, he did not make a big mistake in defense and showed off his ease. It was the moment when the second baseman problem, which had been pointed out as a chronic weakness of the LG Twins since the beginning of the season, was completely solved. Shin Min-jae is still in full swing because he is young.
Therefore, it can be interpreted that Shin Min-jae was able to afford to trade Lee Ju-hyung from LG’s point of view. It didn’t stop here. Manager Yeom Kyung-yeop made a one-on-one trade between pitcher Chae Ji-sun (28, right-handed/left-handed) and NC outfielder Choi Seung-min (27, right-handed/left-handed) on July 18 (Tuesday).
Choi Seung-min graduated from Shinil High School, joined NC in 2015, went through Sangmu, and played 116 games in the first division from the 2019 season, recording a batting average of 0.297 with 22 hits, 5 RBIs, and 16 steals in 74 at-bats. In the 2023 season, he had 0.239 in 24 games and 16 hits and 7 steals in 67 at-bats in the Futures League.
Literally, it is a trade of ‘subject agents’. Many expressed doubts about the trade, but Yeom’s thoughts were different. This is because Shin Min-jae has to fill the gap. Head coach Yeom evaluated that Choi Seung-min will have excellent operational performance as a pinch-runner with his fast focus.
It will help the team a lot later in the game,” he said, expressing his intention to appoint him. And so far, it’s a huge success. The results are coming out sooner than expected. This is because Choi Seung-min is proving to be perfect as a professional runner.
Choi Seung-min showed his true worth against Doosan on July 29. It was time for LG to finally enter the winning streak again after winning five consecutive games. However, he was on the verge of a come-from-behind defeat while leading Doosan.
Choi Seung-min, who played as a pinch-runner after Kim Hyun-soo’s double in the top of the 10th inning of extra time, rushed to third base on a fly to second base and stepped home on Oh Ji-hwan’s infield hit. 7-6 come-from-behind victory. It was a victory that could never have come without Choi Seung-min’s sensuous base play.
LG manager Yeom Kyung-yeop solved LG’s chronic second baseman’s concerns with a “big runner” and won two consecutive games against rival Doosan. On top of that, he solved the second baseman’s concern, so he was able to endure the bleeding that was the basis for bringing Choi Won-tae.
In many ways, LG manager Yeom Kyung-yeop’s use of a pinch-runner this season is meaningful enough that the team’s trade becomes a mark. It goes without saying that it is being used as the driving force for the lead race.
