Half of the bats hit when they turn. Kim Min-hyeok (28), a founding member of kt Wiz, is wielding a hard hit at the beginning of the season.
Recently, Kim Min-hyeok is showing off a sharp blow. 토토사이트He is energizing the team’s batting line with a season batting average of 0.500 (9 hits in 18 at-bats), 3 RBIs, and an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 1.182. Although the sample is small, he ranks first in the league in batting average and third in OPS.
In fact, Kim Min-hyeok was not the main outfielder for kt this season. Starting with assault captain Cho Yong-ho (34), kt tried to build an outfield team with foreign batters Anthony Alford (29), Bae Jeong-dae (28), and Kang Baek-ho (24), who turned corner outfielder. Kim Min-hyeok was likely to start as a left-handed pinch hitter.
Ahead of the end of the demonstration game, a variable occurred in kt. The starting center fielder assignment team suffered a fracture in the left hand blade area due to a sand ball. In a situation where it takes 5 to 6 weeks to recover, kt coach Lee Kang-cheol mentioned Kim Min-hyuk’s name, saying, “We have to use the resources we have (in the team)” regarding the vacancy in the assignment table. Since then, Kim Min-hyeok has been playing as the team’s center fielder since the opening game to fill the void in the assigned squad.
He has been performing beyond expectations so far. After the opening game against Suwon LG Twins on the 1st, no hits in 3 at-bats, he has been hitting every game. He also does his share in various batting order, including leadoff and 7th hitter.
Kim Min-hyuk wore the kt uniform with the 56th overall pick in the 2nd 6th round of the 2014 KBO League Rookie Draft. As a founding member of the team, he played six seasons in the first team until last year, but he has little experience as a lead actor. He was far from the glitzy spotlight, filling the only regulation at-bat in 2019.
The trend is expected to change this year. There was a variable that the battalion was injured and left, but he is making good use of the opportunity. Minhyuk Kim’s career batting average was 0.279 (400 hits in 1634 at-bats). His sophisticated hitting sense has been recognized for a long time.
Kim Min-hyeok is ready to be reborn as a full-fledged lead. He also shows off his presence with his excellent hitting ability. Attention is focusing on whether he will be able to blossom his skills this year.
