José Rojas, a substitute for Jose Fernandez, is one of the concerns of Doosan batting line. His batting average of .400, slugging percentage of 60.67, and on-base percentage of .406 in exhibition games are nowhere to be found.
He has slugging power with 4 homers in the regular season, but his accuracy has dropped dramatically. As of the 26th, batting average of 107.07 and on-base percentage of 2.601 in 19 games. It is still in a different direction from Doosan’s expectations for a sophisticated mid-to-long range.
Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop firmly believes that it is only a transitional period, saying, “Coach Goto will somehow save it,” and “I haven’t turned a single lap yet (against the former club).”
The time of patience is running out. From the point of view of coach Lee Seung-yeop, who says, “When possible, you should accumulate as many multipliers as possible,” there are often days full of regrets.
Daegu Samsung Exhibition on the 26th was representative.
안전놀이터 It was good even when he made a hit by attacking Buchanan’s first ball cut in the second inning with no one on first base.
However, he was hit by the opponent’s battery from the second at-bat. Strikes out after 2 outs in the 4th inning.
The decisive moment was the 6th episode. 1 company, 1st and 3rd base, trailing 0-1. Kim Jae-hwan, whom he trusted, turned around with a strikeout.
Yang Eui-ji at bat with 2nd out, 1st and 3rd base. First base runner Jo Soo-haeng and third base runner Jeong Su-bin. Fast-footed runners who can do any maneuver. At bat Eui-ji Yang, the pitching coach visited the mound. I had a conversation with Buchanan Kang Min-ho Battery.
The choice was intentional 4 pitches. It was a difficult match and Yang Eui-ji was filtered with a straight walk.
It is extremely rare to use a 2-out strategy instead of 2-out 1st and 3rd bases in a one-run game.
This is because it can result in a minimum reversal or a large number of losses in one shot. It can be a very risky choice in front of an already powerful foreign hitter.
However, Samsung finally won the game with ‘Yanggeo-ro’, which skipped Yang Eui-ji and chose Lohas.
The result was successful. Rojas withdrew from the unfavorable ball count of 1B2S with a 144 km cutter on the inside with a fly out to the third baseman. The moment when Samsung’s adventure succeeds. It was the moment when Doosan’s bench deepened.
