Doosan’s future is eventually a ‘first nomination’ duo? Is it possible to return with Daehan and Jaesuk in June?￼
- on May 07, 2023
The Doosan Bears are worried about a team bat that has been stagnant in the early stages of this season. In addition to the rebound of the existing key hitters, there are still big concerns for each spot in the infield and outfield. The atmosphere has become desperate for the return of outfielder Kim Dae-han and infielder Ahn Jae-seok, who were injured due to an overall crisis.
Doosan failed to achieve a winning series with 1 win and 2 losses in three consecutive home matches against the Hanwha Eagles during the week. Doosan was completely defeated by Hanwha in the firepower battle, and at the same time, the mound collapsed and suffered a complete defeat two days in a row. Fortunately, the match against the LG Twins on May 5 and 6, the Children’s Day series, was postponed due to rain, giving them time to breathe.
However, the team’s bat is still a concern. As of May 6 this season, Doosan ranked 9th in team batting average (0.240), 8th in team on-base percentage (0.329), and 7th in team slugging percentage (0.352). In a situation where the team’s batting line was generally depressed, the team’s scoring range batting average (0.214) also fell to 9th in the league.
If you look at the situation of Doosan fielders at the beginning of this season, there is a hole that cannot be filled one by one in the outfield and infield. Since there is no solid starting player, various faces are filling the seats alternately, but there is a limit to a few flashes of activity in the end. We need a picture that stably blocks even the defense in a steady flow of blows.
In the end, the atmosphere of waiting for the ‘first nomination duo’ Kim Dae-han and Ahn Jae-seok is getting more desperate. Both players are players with so-called high ‘shilling’ in both hitting and defense. Doosan’s future depends on how much the two players explode as they have been consistently evaluated as having excellent potential as ‘5-tool players’.
A Doosan official said, “In the process of advancing to the Korean Series for 7 consecutive years, the rookie draft order has been pushed back every year. Usually, if a fielder and pitcher are of similar level, there was a limit to appointing a good fielder resource to pick a pitcher first. It was fortunate that when there was the first nomination, we were able to select two beasts (Kim Dae-han and Ahn Jae-seok) with excellent potential.”
Team Yasujin Even considering the future, the best scenario would be for Kim Dae-han to be in center field or right field and Ahn Jae-seok to be a shortstop for the long term. If the two players can explode their potential while roaming the Jamsil ground together, there is no happier picture in the eyes of Doosan fans.
Of course, it is a realistic problem for the two players who are currently injured to come back healthy as soon as possible. Daehan Kim, who received the most expectations among the young players in the team, suffered a fractured metacarpal bone in his finger during an exhibition game and is still in the process of rehabilitation. Ahn Jae-seok was removed from Team 1 last week due to back pain, so he needs about two weeks of rest.
In the case of Kim Dae-han, his bones are still less attached, so his return may be pushed back until early June. Coach Lee Seung-yeop said, “I heard that Kim Dae-han still has (the aftermath of the injury) left in the X-ray. He said, “I thought it was attached because it was okay when I moved or applied strength.” I think he will take a little longer,” he sighs.
Regarding the timing of Kim Dae-han’s return, Director Lee said, “I expect to return in early June. Shouldn’t it be that fast? He got hurt at the end of March and it’s been about 5 weeks, and he hasn’t played a real game. Next week it will be 6 weeks. Can he take 6 weeks off and come back in 3 weeks. No matter how good a player he is, his sense of practice cannot be ignored. Assuming 100% performance, 3 weeks can be a little burdensome. It would be nice if he returned at the end of May, but if he is in poor batting condition and his grades are poor, he may have a harder time himself.”
In the end,메이저사이트 it is expected that it will be difficult to set the timing of Kim Dae-han’s return in a hurry, as he has a finger fracture injury and lack of sense for actual combat. Coach Lee said, “While playing the game, there should be no risk of injury and you should find confidence in your performance. Wouldn’t it be around the beginning of June?” “Depending on the person, the senses may suddenly come up. You have to watch. I’m not in a hurry,” he said.
