He’s a great swimmer downstream. But I can’t do much in the upper water.
Hanwha Eagles fifth-year outfielder Eui-yeol (23). He hasn’t grown much. Starting this season with the Futures (second division) team, Eui-yeol got off to a good start with a 2-for-9 batting average in 11 games. On March 23, he was called up to the first team alongside Lee Sung-gon.
His first-team performance, however, was 2-for-35 (78 at-bats) with no home runs and four RBIs in 19 games. His OPS (on-base percentage plus slugging percentage) was just .445. His plate discipline wasn’t great either, as he struck out six times while drawing just one walk. It wasn’t much of a change from his previous four seasons in the first team. As a result, Hanwha head coach Choi Won-ho dismissed him from the first team on June 22.
A product of Gwangju First High School, Uribe was regarded as an infielder with a strong batting eye and quick feet in high school. Hanwha recognized his talent and selected him with a high pick in the second round of the 2019 Rookie Draft. Converted to an outfielder after joining the team, Uribe earned playing time with the first team in his first year. However, he batted in the low teens for four straight seasons until last year. In 2021, the first year of Carlos Suvero’s tenure as manager, he was given nearly 100 at-bats, but batted just 1-for-43.
Luck wasn’t on his side. In August 2021, he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in a game for the Futures (second team) and was lost for the season. He was renamed from Yoo Jang-hyuk to Euromae after the season and hoped to rebound, but here we are.
Choi, who has been following the Euros closely since his days as head coach of the Futures, said, “The coaches of the Beast part said that I should take him out of the Euros now for mental management.” He explained the reason behind his first-team expulsion. “I would have wanted to do well,” he said, adding, “I’m not an outgoing player. He’s not an outgoing person, and I think he’s stressed because he’s not getting results at the plate,” he added. He added, “I talked to my coaches about it. I told him that if he recovers well from the Futures and improves his batting, he will have good results 토토사이트.”
Another first-team challenge, another failure, another trip to the Futures. It’s a Euro final with a lot to think about. But it’s still an exciting time, with the focus on the possible. What they need now is an unbreakable spirit.
