‘Exhibition match successful’ Bae Ji-hwan joins the opening entry for the first time in his life

Bae Ji-hwan (24) of the Pittsburgh Pirates was included in the opening roster for the first time since advancing to the United States. 

The Pittsburgh Tribune Review, a local Pittsburgh media, quoted a source on the 29th (Korean time) and said, “Bae Ji-hwan will join the opening roster.” Other local media outlets, including MLB.com, also reported on the day that “utility resource Bae Ji-hwan, who can see various defensive positions, will be included in the opening roster.”

This is the first time Bae Ji-hwan has been named to the 26-man opening roster in the major leagues. Bae Ji-hwan, who joined Pittsburgh in 2018, recorded a batting average of 0.289, 8 home runs, and 53 RBIs in 108 games in Triple A last year, and was called up to the major leagues in September to enter the big leagues. 온라인카지노

Bae Ji-hwan played in 10 major league games last year and showed potential with a batting average of 0.333 (11 hits in 33 at-bats), 6 RBIs, 3 stolen bases, and an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.829.

Bae Ji-hwan, who proved his potential, completed all major league spring camp schedules for the first time this year. Bae Ji-hwan, who played 19 games, recorded 0.234 (12 hits in 47 at-bats), 2 RBIs, 2 walks and 4 stolen bases. In the last demonstration game on the 29th, he appeared as a substitute for a major defense and went 0-2 in 2 at-bats, but was included in the opening entry. 

Meanwhile, Pittsburgh will play the 2023 season opener against Cincinnati at Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati, Ohio on the 31st.
