Samsung Reinforces Bullpen Bats are Also Important.

Samsung is busy in the off-season. We are accelerating efforts to strengthen the bullpen. 

The results are also certain. However, the bat also attracts attention. 

It’s better than the mound, but it’s not that powerful. There is a side that needs resurrection. 카지노사이트랭크

Samsung ranked 6th with a team batting average of 0.263 in the 2023 season.

 Home runs are 88, ranking 8th, and OPS is 7th, with 0.702. It can be said that he showed below-average attack power. 

This is one of the reasons why the team ranked 8th.

The most disappointing part, of course, was the bullpen.

 Lowest in the league with an ERA of 5.16. Samsung was the only team with an ERA in the 5-point range.

Samsung also knows. Accordingly, in the off-season, they signed Kim Jae-yoon for a total of 5.8 billion won over 4 years. 

A large amount of money was spent. Together with Oh Seung-hwan, he has established a solid ‘bullpen one-two punch’.

 In the second draft, they succeeded in strengthening their team by bringing in Seong-Hoon Choi and Hoon Yang. 

The fire was quickly put out. 

Reinforcement is also continuing. The bat side is relatively quiet. 

Unless there is another method such as trade, existing resources must provide strength.

The player who ranks first is Oh Jae-il. It’s safe to say that he’s had his poorest season since becoming a starter. 

He played in 106 games, batting average of .203, 11 home runs, 54 RBI, and an OPS of 0.658.

At the beginning of the season, he was like, ‘That’s it.’ This is because he has always been a slow starter. 

However, the slump prolonged. By May, he was struggling with a batting average of .100. As the trusted ‘4th hitter’ performed poorly

Samsung also had no choice but to lose strength.

The 2024 season must be different. 

Although there are good hitters such as Koo Ja-wook and Kang Min-ho, Oh Jae-il’s strength is essential. 

Only then can Samsung’s batting lineup gain weight.

It is nice to see a rebound at the end of the season. In September he batted .289, with 2 home runs and 11 RBI, and an OPS of .874. 

He went 0-for-4 as a pinch hitter in October due to a hamstring problem, but September certainly wasn’t bad.

He is a player who erased his worries about first base after joining Samsung.

 It is absolutely necessary. Furthermore, 2024 is also important for Oh Jae-il. 

This is the final year of his free agent contract. If you look at it from afar, ‘resurrection’ is essential.

There is also the other side. He is a foreign batsman. Jose Pirella recorded 139 games in 2023

a batting average of 0.285, 16 home runs, 80 RBI, and an OPS of 0.764. It’s not all that bad. Instead, it wasn’t good.

Because the 2022 season was so exciting, it had no choice but to stand out. 

He played in 141 games, batted .342, had 28 home runs, 109 RBI, and had an OPS of .976. 

He showed MVP-level performance. It was natural for him to renew his contract. 

He took home a total of $1.7 million. However, in 2023, the results plummeted.

Samsung has a lot to worry about. Born in 1989, he is quite old. 

It may be judged that it has reached its peak in 2022 and is on its way down. If so, you need to find another player.

Instead, the reputation within the team is good. According to club officials

the players especially think highly of Pirella. There are quite a few players who express their wish to go together.

This means that Pirella devoted himself to the team. In fact, he served as interim captain for the 2022 season. 

I integrated well into the team. It would be best if the grades were good

but the numbers that came out are disappointing.

Nothing has been decided yet. Whether someone new comes or they continue with Pirella

Samsung’s foreign hitters must do well ‘absolutely’. Only then can the team’s batting lineup be purchased.
