“The defense is stable and sincere…” Will KT’s right-handed catcher Yoo Ja-won demonstrate his true value at NC

Will Moon Sang-in be able to make the NC Dinos’ home turf thicker by showing his skills in full bloom.

Moon Sang-in, from Gaeseong Middle School and Gyeongnam High School, is a right-handed right-handed catcher with a physique of 185 centimeters and 79 kilograms. He was considered the best catcher in high school based on his outstanding defensive skills, and entered the professional league with the 41st pick of the KT Wiz in the second fifth round in the 2017 draft.

The professional stage, however, was far from easy. He joined the main league for the first time in the 2020 season, but he failed to display remarkable performance. Since then, he has played in only 12 games and one game in the 2022 and 2023 seasons, respectively. His overall performance in the pro league was 0.167 with a batting average of 0.000 (no hit in five times at bat), two runs, three strikeouts and an on-base percentage of 0.167.

His performance in the Futures League was not good either. He had a batting average of 0.233 (144 hits in 619 at-bats) with eight homers and 65 RBIs in 304 games thus far. Fortunately, he displayed the best performance in this season. Playing in 38 games, Moon recorded a batting average of 0.298 (28 hits in 94 at-bats) with 10 RBIs and a slugging percentage of 0.394 with an on-base percentage of 0.371.

However, Moon Sang-in couldn’t avoid the fierce wind of his release after the season due to his lack of performance in the first division. Fortunately, NC reached out to Moon. The NC Dinosaurs said on Wednesday that they recruited Moon by informing them of changes in the team’s roster.

NC already has two outstanding catchers in its main league: Kim Hyung-joon and Park Se-hyuk. Among them, Kim Hyung-joon is most likely to play as a starting member for next season. 랭크카지노 He joined the team at the end of this season, but he showed off his natural skills by wearing a catcher mask as a starting member in NC’s fall journey from the wild card decider to the playoffs. He played as the main homeowner for the Korean national team at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games and the Asian Professional Baseball Championship (APBC) 2023, and resolved military issues early on through the 2021-2022 Sangmu.

Park Se-hyuk’s presence cannot be ignored. Since he was designated as 47th overall by the Doosan Bears in the fifth round in 2012, he has been wearing the NC Dinos’ uniform since this season, and is an experienced catcher with a batting average of 0.253 (559 hits in 2206 at-bats) with 30 homers and 291 RBIs in 870 games overall. Ahn Jung-yeol, who has a batting average of 0.213 (169 hits in 793 at-bats) with 16 homers and 74 RBIs in 400 games overall, is also holding out.

Why did NC hold Moon Sang-in in its arms despite the fact that there are catchers who can be used immediately in the first division? There has been a series of recent departures of catcher resources. NC had to give up Park Dae-on, who had a batting average of 0.212 (77 hits in 364 times at bat) with two homers and 23 RBIs in 259 games in the last 2nd draft, to SSG Landers. On the 18th, even Park Sung-jae, who played for the Futures Team, joined Sangmu.

NC Dinosaurs had suffered from string injuries to their catchers this season. Kim Hyung-joon, who underwent cruciate ligament surgery in August last year, only appeared in August due to ligament damage in his right ankle, and Park Se-hyuk was also hit in the face by a bat early in the season. Since then, Park had to leave the battlefield again in August due to tendinitis in his wrist, and Ahn Jung-yeol also groaned from damage to his adductor muscles in late August.

Through these dizzying experiences, NC deeply realized that in order to play well in a season, there must be many catchers. However, it has not been able to avoid the recent outflow of many catchers, and as a result, it has chosen to hold a statue in its arms.

” (Moon Sang-in) is recruiting catcher Debs in consideration,” NC Dinosaurs General Manager Lim Seon-nam said in a recent telephone conversation with a reporter. “As Park Dae-on was transferred in the second draft, I thought catcher was insufficient. We have recruited him to strengthen catcher Debs.”

Although KT has not performed properly, NC has no doubt about Moon Sang-in’s potential. Above all, his work style is good.

“Moon Sang-in is a player who sincerely works hard. His defense is also stable,” Lim said. “I think that as a catcher, it will help the team’s chemistry. I think there will be more things I can show.” It remains to be seen whether Moon, who is still 25 years old, will be able to display his skills and performance in full swing by responding to the NC Dinosaurs’ belief.
