It is a pace that can break through 20 homers with a batting average of 30%. Here, they are aiming for a rebound in the scoring situation. How far will the value of the ‘preliminary free agent giant’ rise?
At Jamsil Stadium on the 7th, when Doosan defeated Hanwha 6-3, Yang Seok-hwan (32), Doosan’s fourth hitter, became the protagonist of the final stroke.스포츠토토
At the end of the 7th inning when the score was tied 3-3, Yang Seok-hwan hit Kang Jae-min’s 143 km fastball with second out and second and third bases.
Yang Seok-hwan, who played an active role with 2 hits and 2 RBIs in 4 at-bats that day, is about to return to a 30% batting average. In April, he posted a batting average of .314 with 6 homers and 16 RBIs, but Yang Seok-hwan, whose batting average dropped to .277 for the season at one time, has raised his batting average to .297 this season. He boasts an excellent hitting feeling with a recent 6-game hitting streak.
This year, Yang Seok-hwan is hitting 8 home runs. He has not been able to keep up the pace of hitting 6 home runs in April alone, but Yang Seok-hwan himself is worth considering even more.
Yang Seok-hwan said, “I think home runs are an extension of hits. If there are a lot of home runs, of course it’s good, but I think it’s better to keep hitting and aiming for home runs instead of just hitting home runs and not getting hits.” I am determined to focus on scoring because my greed is greater.
Currently, Yang Seok-hwan is showing the pace to hit 22 home runs. Of course, he has the ability to drive, so he is expected to break through 20 home runs. Having already exploded 28 home runs in 2021, the first season after moving to Doosan, he somehow managed to hit 20 home runs even while his batting average dropped to .244 last year.
What remains now is a rebound in scoring position. Yang Seok-hwan’s batting average in scoring position this season is .262, which is not very impressive. Attention is focusing on whether he will be able to continue the momentum he scored in the match against Hanwha in Jamsil on the 7th.
If Yang Seok-hwan, who has booked 20 homers for three consecutive years, achieves a batting average of 30% for the first time in his life and increases his dominance in scoring, his stock price is expected to soar even more in the upcoming free agent market.
