Samsung, who chose ‘internal reinforcement’, rehearsal is over…Now it’s time for ‘verification’

 I turned away from the roaring FA market and chose ‘internal reinforcement’. The test is over. I definitely saw hope in the demonstration game. It’s the regular season now. It’s time for ‘validation’. It’s a Samsung story.

Samsung’s 2023 season has already started in November last year. I left for finish camp in Okinawa. Severe training took place. The director’s intention was simple. He said he would make it habitable through repeated training.

The camp was successfully completed and 메이저놀이터returned to Korea. “Even if it’s a shame, I’ll have to spend the off-season well,” they said in unison.

The team spent the off-season faithfully as they did. But Samsung was silent. It was a FA market with a total of 80.3 billion won, but Samsung did not budge. He drew the line, saying, “There is no property that we can covet.” Internal free agents Kim Sang-soo and Oh Seon-jin also left. In fact, it must be said that he did not catch it.

It is a calculation to try to win with the resources available. In fact, the power isn’t even that bad. This is a team that rose to second place in the regular league in 2021. At that time, the power was almost intact. Rather, it is expected that players who have been sluggish will do well.

A representative player is Ja-wook Koo. If normal, he’s a nerdy player with -20 home runs and -80 RBIs for 3. In addition, David Buchanan-Albert Suarez-Jose Pirella are the best foreign players in the league.

He can’t just be blindly looking forward to it. At spring camp, I once again sweated. He called it ‘training hell’. It was a difficult time, but he faithfully built up his skills.

A good performance came out in the trial game. He finished second, with a record of 10 wins and 4 losses in 14 games. Samsung is the only team that has achieved a double-digit multiplier. 1st place was Hanwha, but 9 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses in 13 games.

Ja-wook Koo posted a batting average of 0.400 and an OPS of 1.067. It clearly shot a signal to wash away last year’s sluggishness. Kim Tae-gun, who said, “He is confident,” also made a batting average of 0.429 and an OPS of 1.143.

‘Park Jin-man’s man’ Kang Han-ul is also good with a batting average of 0.333, 1 home run, and OPS of 0.857. Pirella’s bat is also still hot. Oh Jae-il and Kang Min-ho have not yet come up, but they have prepared diligently for the regular season.\

It’s not that there are no bad things. Kim Hyeon-joon left due to a fracture of the hip bone, and Kim Jae-seong also leaves with a torn side muscle. However, Kang Min-ho and Kim Tae-goon are enough catchers. There are also backups such as Lee Byung-hun.

Lee Seong-gyu, the first in home run in the exhibition game, will take the place of center fielder. He posted a batting average of 0.333, 5 homers and 11 RBIs, and an OPS of 1.146. He was called a ‘permanent prospect’, but this time it’s different. The bat spins back cheerfully. The center field defense is good enough.

The mound is fine too. Buchanan-Suarez each had an ERA of 1.59-0.69. Baek Jeong-hyeon also finished the inspection, and Won Tae-in, who went to the WBC national team, showed off his good pitch. The 5th selection belongs to Yang Chang-seop, who showed the most stable appearance among the candidates.

The bullpen, which raised concerns, is also solid. The duo of right-hander Lee Seung-hyun and left-hander Lee Seung-hyun recorded an ERA of 0 side by side. Lee Jae-ik (1.42) and Hong Jeong-woo (1.80) are also good. In particular, it is evaluated that Hong Jeong-woo’s ball has improved. Oh Seung-hwan and Woo Kyu-min are invincible.

In this demonstration game, he showed good pitching balance. It’s the regular season now. It is different from the trial game. You have to do well here for real. It is necessary to prove that the time of ‘reinforcement’, which lasted for a long time from November of last year to March of this year, was not wrong. The results speak for themselves.
