Rojas, first hit since returning to KT Director Lee Kang-cheol “I hope you continue to have confidence”

KT returns after 4 years No hits in 6 games including practice games

Mel Rojas Jr. (33, KT Wiz), the best player in the 2020 KBO League, wore the KT uniform again ahead of this season.

He dominated the league in 2020 with a batting average of 0.349, 47 home runs, 135 RBI, and OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 1.297, and joined the Hanshin Tigers of the Japanese professional baseball team in 2021.

However, he did not show much success in Japan, and after playing in Mexican professional baseball last year, he returned to KT after four years ahead of this season.

Rojas late hit his first hit since his return with a double in the first inning in a KBO exhibition game against the LG Twins held at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on the 10th.

This is the first hit in 6 games, including practice games.

Rojas appeared in four spring camp practice games and went silent with no hits in seven at-bats and three walks, and was unable to hit a hit in the first game of the exhibition game, against Suwon LG on the 9th.

KT coach Lee Kang-cheol was pleased with Rojas’ long-awaited first hit.

Although it was an exhibition game, I hoped it would be an opportunity to regain confidence.

Coach Lee met with reporters ahead of the Suwon SSG Landers game on the 11th and hoped, “I don’t know how long Rojas will be confident, but I hope he continues to have confidence.”

Perhaps because his batting sense has not yet fully returned, the ball rarely moves forward, but with nearly two weeks left until the start of the regular season, he is gradually regaining his sense of touch.

Coach Lee added that he will continue to trust Rojas.

He said, “Rojas doesn’t want to mess with (about training methods). I think he had that kind of problem in Japan (due to stress),” and “So I called him at the start of the Japanese camp and told him, ‘I’ll make it easy for you, so don’t worry.’ Rojas said he was grateful. “He introduced. 스포츠토토
