‘Little Lee Jung-hoo’ talent confirmed in Australia, started KBO verification at spring camp

A certain portion of his talent was confirmed in Geelong Korea, an Australian professional baseball team. Now, the KBO league needs verification work.

Lotte’s spring camp advance team departed for Guam early. Preparations for the sweat and fierce competition for the 2023 season have already begun.

On the 25th, head coach Larry Sutton will arrive in Korea and make a final check on the spring camp roster and training schedule. The people who have already departed as a starting lineup are pitchers such as Choi Jun-yong, Na Kyun-an, Lee In-bok, Kim Won-joong, Lee Min-seok, Jin Seung-hyeon, Yoon Myeong-jun, and Shin Jeong-rak, as well as beasts such as Noh Jin-hyeok, Kim Min-soo, and Han Tae-yang. After that, key players will be additionally released, and the coaching staff and the main team will depart on the 1st of next month.

While one or two rookies from each club participate in the spring camp, such as Kim Seo-hyun (Hanwha), Yoon Young-cheol (KIA), Kim Kun-hee (Kiwoom), Shin Young-woo (NC) and Yoon Jun-ho (Doosan), Lotte’s rookie draft 1st rounder Kim Min-seok (19) also springs. included in the camp roster.

A native of Whimoon High School, he was called ‘Little Lee Jeong-hoo’ as he was praised for having the same talent as Lee Jung-hoo (Kiwoom), his senior in high school. Last year, in his senior year of high school, he played 20 games with a batting average of 5.44 (37 hits in 68 at-bats), 1 home run, 10 RBIs, 33 runs, 20 stolen bases, and an OPS of 1.508. Now, Kim Min-seok is being tested in front of seniors in the first team and the coaching staff for the potential he showed during his high school days.

Kim Min-seok experienced professional level before joining. He was sent to Geelong Korea, an Australian professional baseball team, for the 2022-2023 season, where he spent time gaining experience and confirming his potential. In 20 games, he posted a batting average of 2.3 5 Lee (16-for-68), 1 home run, 1 RBI, 11 runs batted in, and an OPS of .612. Compared to the flashy early days, as the season went on, it was clear that it was somewhat overpowered. This is the reason why his record gradually fell.

In defense, I experienced various positions such as first baseman (64⅔ innings in 11 games) second baseman (52⅓ innings in 8 games) third baseman (18 innings in 3 games) center fielder (11 innings in 2 games). His batting 슬롯사이트 talent is outstanding, but his defensive ability was lacking in comparison. It was a situation where there were questions about his position in the future. It was Kim Min-seok’s Australian League experience that was able to build a variety of experiences and make a sample.

Now, he will participate in the 1st team spring camp and go through the work of verifying Kim Min-seok’s talent. He will show how he came to be called ‘Little Lee Jung-hoo’ in front of the coaching staff. Also, during the spring camp, the future development direction of Kim Min-seok and the establishment of a defensive position are expected to accompany the process.
