Lotte’s ‘Second Lee Jung-hoo’ and ‘Bullet Man’… I’m still full, but is there another top prospect?

Lotte, who has been frustrated by failing to advance to the postseason for the past few years, has been given the right to nominate a newcomer every year in return. The nomination rights were invested in prospects who fit the team’s tone, and the team’s farm energy was quite different from before.

It seems that those players are coming up to the first team one by one and taking their place. In the other lineup, left-handed hitter Koh Seung-min (23) and rookie outfielder Kim Min-seok (19) stand out. The two players have good athletic ability and have a common point of batting material. They are in the limelight as players who will lead the future of Lotte.

Ko Seung-min showed off his batting talent by recording a batting average of 0.316 in 92 games last year. There were times when he was trapped in Platoon’s swamp, but this year he feels like he’s getting a little bit free. Ko Seung-min’s talent is confirmed by his batting speed, which is the highest in the league. He said that he has all the technical mechanisms such as the material to hit, the power, and the trajectory.

According to ‘Trackman’, which provides tracking data to 9 KBO league teams, Ko Seung-min’s measured average batting speed far exceeds 140 km/h. Last year, he averaged 142.4 km, 8th overall in the league (based on the number of batted balls over 50), and this year, he was 9th in the league with 142.1 km. The expectation is that if he adds strength to this talent, he will grow into a better player. 먹튀검증

Kim Min-seok, a rookie this year, has some areas to improve, but his talent itself is not inferior to Ko Seung-min. There are also evaluations that he is better than Koh Seung-min in comprehensive tools such as batting, running and defense. He is athletic, has a good starting lineup, and has the potential to develop into a top-class defender in addition to his ability to hit hard balls.

Lotte coach Larry Sutton also said ahead of the KIA game in Gwangju on the 3rd, “First of all, the confidence of the two players is growing every day. He is pleased to say that he is showing maturity as a baseball player and maturity as a teammate,” and said, “It seems that he is growing by 1% every day. And the attitude of the players has changed during training and they are showing that they are working hard. Personally, I work very hard. We have to make up for the shortcomings, but the players are working hard in the direction of maximizing the strengths.”
