Bae Ji-hwan, who stepped onto the big league stage last fall, showed impressive performances with .333/.405/.424, 6 RBIs and 3 stolen bases, even though he only played 10 games in the major leagues. Bae Ji-hwan is expected to be a candidate to be included in the starting lineup this season.

Bae Ji-hwan said, “I don’t have a lot of emotions because it’s an annual departure, but I still have a different idea of ​​going to camp. When I participated as a minor league invited player, I went to camp knowing that I would return to the minor league anyway. But now I think it’s up to me to do it.” The resolution has also changed in the changed position. Big league seniors such as Ryu Hyun-jin, Choi Ji-man, and Kim Ha-seong have already headed to the United States. Bae Ji-hwan, who left Korea rather late, laughed and said, “I want to eat a lot of home-cooked meals, so I’m leaving late.”

Bae Ji-hwan laughed, saying, “Second baseman and center fielder are the most comfortable, shortstop is difficult, and left fielder is unfamiliar. Bae Ji-hwan expressed confidence, “I feel comfortable in any position. I am greedy to be in the lineup, but I am not greedy for any position or batting order.”

The major leagues strategically send talented prospects to the minor leagues early in the season to retain them longer. Bae Ji-hwan is also likely to be a target. Bae Ji-hwan laughed, saying, “I’ve seen a lot of things like that. I have tolerance.” “If I start the season in the minor leagues like that, I’ll be happy because I feel like I’m being managed rather.”

Bae Ji-hwan, preparing for his second year season, said, “Last year was too short. It was because of an injury. My goal is not to get hurt. I want to test myself by playing a full season in the major leagues.”
