Sending a promising pitcher, why did you trade for a large runner… A specialist with a 67% stolen base success rate

The LG Twins strengthened the runner specialist with a trade in preparation for the postseason.

On the 18th, LG agreed to a one-on-one trade to send right-handed pitcher Chae Ji-sun (28) to NC and recruit Choi Seung-min (27), right-handed left-hander outfielder from NC.

In a press release announcing the trade, LG said, “Choi Seung-min is expected to be of great help to the team in the second half of the game and evaluates his ability to carry out operations as a large runner with a quick focus.”

At the end of the first half, coach Yeom Kyung-yeop said, “We need to reinforce one professional runner.” This is because Shin Min-jae, the number one runner in the early season conception, showed good performances not only in running base but also in offense and defense, and rapidly grew to the starting second baseman.

Shin Min-jae, who played mainly as a large runner at the beginning of the season, became the 1st ranked second baseman due to Seo Gun-chang’s 2nd division and utility Kim Min-sung’s hamstring injury. Shin Min-jae played in 66 games in the first half and recorded a batting average of 3.44 (33 hits in 96 at-bats), 7 RBIs, 24 points, 21 stolen bases, an on-base percentage of .400, and an OPS of .754. In particular, he is ranked first in base stealing (75% success rate), beating out the Junjok who are said to be strong.

Director Yeom said of Shin Min-jae, “As the ninth hitter, he plays more than 90% of his role. His feet are fast, there is little risk of double death, he has good maneuverability, he picks up the ball well, and he has good contact skills, so he is expected (as a second baseman) in the postseason.”

As Shin Min-jae was often included in the starting lineup, it was necessary to increase the depth of the bench runner, and Choi Seung-min was recruited through a trade.

Choi Seung-min joined the NC as a foster player in 2015 and was registered as an official player in 2017. He debuted in the first team in 2019 after completing military service in the Sangmu baseball team, and played in 116 games in his career until last year, scoring a batting average of 2.9 and 7 (22 hits in 74 at-bats) with 5 RBIs and 32 points메이저사이트. Last year he batted 3.2 3 (11 hits in 34 at-bats).

Choi Seung-min, who has quick feet, stole 16 bases for three years and failed 8 times. His stolen base success rate was 66.7%. He has some stealing ability.

Choi Seung-min did not play in a single game in the first team this season and has been playing in the Futures League all along. In 24 games, he had a batting average of 2.3 9 Lee (16-for-67) with 6 RBI. His steals were 7 successful and 4 missed. He recorded a career stealing 127 bases and a stealing success rate of 69% in nine Futures League seasons.

LG used a promising pitcher as a trade card to bring in a runner-up specialist. Chae Ji-seon, who was traded to NC, joined Doosan in the second round (8th overall) in 2015, and wore an LG uniform as a trade in 2021. At the time, he came to LG with Ham Deok-joo, and it was a 2-2 trade with Yang Seok-hwan and Nam-ho.

Chae Ji-seon pitched in 55 games (54 innings) for the first team and recorded an average ERA of 4.00 with 1 win and 3 holds. This year, one game and ⅔ innings are scoreless. He pitched in 17 games (17⅓ innings) in the Futures League, posting a 3.63 earned run average with 2 wins, 1 loss and 3 holds.

NC expects Chae Ji-sun to strengthen the depth of the pitching staff and help in bullpen operation.
