‘At this rate, even 10 home runs are dangerous’ Is the captain’s slump, 3 consecutive RBIs a green light?
SSG Landers captain Han Yu-seom, who is experiencing the worst batting slump this season. Are RBIs in 3 consecutive games a green light for revival?스포츠토토
Ahead of this season, Hanyu Island tried to modify its batting form to prevent injuries. However, it was not easy for him to adapt to his new form, and as the slump got longer, he declared a return to his original form, saying, “Now is not the time to be stubborn.” Although the player himself would like to have enough time in his new form to prevent further injury, it was a problem that could not be easily thought of when considering the impact he had on the entire team lineup.
However, once twisted, the thread was not easily untied. He could hardly untie the knot. Hanyu Island continued to struggle with a batting average of 10% after the opening, and was feeling a lot of psychological pressure. In the end, on June 10th, he went down to the 2nd team because it was difficult to hold out in the 1st team anymore. He had time to readjust.
Two weeks later, Hanyu Island returned to the first team. Still, his hopeful thing is that hits are coming out little by little from before going down to the 2nd team. After his return to the first team, his batting performance was 7 games with a batting average of 2.6 and 3 Lee (5 hits in 19 at-bats). In particular, in three consecutive away matches against Kiwoom Heroes last weekend, he hit two doubles and also raised RBIs in three consecutive games. In the game on the 2nd, he was applauded for his body-flying play in which he exquisitely avoided the opponent’s catcher’s tag with perfect timing and scored. He was willing to help the team somehow.
This season is more difficult than at the beginning of his professional debut. Hanyu Island also hit 41 home runs in the 2018 season, and broke 20 home runs in the last two seasons in a row. Even when the bat was not hitting well, he was the one who consistently recorded a batting average in the 20% range and a double-digit home run.
However, this season, the batting average is still in the 10% range and the trademark of Hanyu Island is only 2 home runs. If this continues, there could be a shocking situation in which he cannot continue the double-digit home run record even after filling the required at-bats for the first time since his debut this season.
In order for SSG to win, the power of Hanyu Island is absolutely necessary. SSG has a strong batting order in the center, with Choi Jeong and Guillermo Heredia in the top batting order starting with Choo Shin-soo and Choi Ji-hoon. In the lower batting order with ups and downs recently, Hanyu Island is the key. Only when Hanyu Island survives, the lower batting order leading to Choi Joo-hwan and Park Seong-han becomes even stronger. As Hanyu Island’s slump is prolonged, the power it has in the batting order after Choi Jeong and Heredia will inevitably decrease. The difference between the presence and absence of long-hit guns is quite large.
RBI streak in 3 consecutive games, defense and running base play. Will Hanyu Island’s struggles to escape from sluggishness have a definite effect? The second half is now approaching.
