Samsung in crisis of ‘falling to the bottom’, the older brothers are coming back


Will the trio of veterans become a force for the Samsung Lions in crisis? 

Oh Jae-il (37), Oh Seung-hwan (41), and Woo Gyu-min (38) Samsung Lions veterans are about to return. As of the 26th, Oh Jae-il and Woo Kyu-min, who have completed the entry cancellation period for 10 days, will be registered in the first team for the match on the 28th, while Oh Seung-hwan, who has one more day left, will play against the Busan Lotte Giants on the 27th. 

The three players were canceled from the first team in mid-June due to sluggish performance. Oh Jae-il appeared in 57 games this season, batting average of 0.177, 7 home runs, and 32 RBIs, and was canceled on the 16th due to extreme sluggish batting. Woo Kyu-min was also sluggish with an average ERA of 7.71 in 5 games in 4⅔innings in 5 games in June and went down to the 2nd team on the same day, and Oh Seung-hwan slowed down with an ERA of 7.71 in the last 3 games, followed by a mutiny drunk at the time of the steel plate in the game on the 16th on the 18th. Discontinued from group 1. 

The three players checked their condition while playing in the second team in the Futures League. Oh Jae-il raised the sense of hitting with a batting average of 0.222 (2 hits in 9 at-bats), 1 RBI and 3 walks in 3 games in the 2nd group, and Woo Kyu-min prepared for a comeback by fighting hard with 3 scoreless innings in 3 games. Oh Seung-hwan appeared in 1 game and recorded 1 run in 1 inning. Samsung coach Park Jin-man said, “We received reports that all three players are well prepared. I hope to come up to the first team in good shape,” he said, looking forward to the joining of the three players. 

Samsung escaped from a 5-game losing streak by winning 5-2 against SSG Landers in Incheon on the 25th, the most recent match. However, it is still at the bottom of the ranking, and the win rate is ‘-14’ with a 30% win rate (0.397). The situation is still not good as the ride with the 5th place has been extended to 6 games. 토토사이트

Furthermore, Samsung’s team ERA in June was 5.18, far exceeding the league average of 4.32, and the team’s batting average was 0.264, ranking 8th in the league. The average ERA of the bullpen reaches 5.45 (9th) and the batting average in scoring position is 0.260 (8th), which is disastrous. The fielding team, which was made up of young players, continued to be insecure, committing 17 mistakes during the month of June. Attention is focusing on what effect the joining of veterans will have in a situation of total impasse. 

Manager Park Jin-man said, “In this (lowest) bad time, veteran players need to focus and release, but I expect them to come back in good shape and center the team and turn the atmosphere around.”
