Will the reversal of the ‘lot, two, one’ reversal of the massive power reinforcement succeed?

The 3 teams that stayed in the lower ranks of professional baseball last year, Lotte Giants in 8th place, Doosan Bears in 9th place, and Hanwha Eagles in 10th place, are preparing for the 2023 season of reversal after extensive power reinforcement in the winter free agent (FA) market. These three teams, who spent relatively less money last year, the first year of the salary cap (team salary cap system), made aggressive investments in Stove League this winter.

First of all, Lotte, which failed in the fall baseball challenge during Lee Dae-ho’s retirement season, returned as the ‘big hand’ in the FA market. Catcher Yoo Kang-nam, infielder Roh Jin-hyuk, and pitcher Han Hyun-hee spared no money to strengthen the infield center line. In addition, in the release market, many experienced pitchers with a sense of power were immediately recruited, such as Yoon Myeong-jun, Kim Sang-soo, Shin Jeong-rak, and Cha Woo-chan. He also brought in catcher Lee Jung-hoon, who has a good hitting.

It is to prepare for the new season with a ‘foreign club’ style competition system that does not stop at buying players with high ransom at full price, but provides an opportunity for resurrection to players who are released from their original team and are struggling to fight. Lotte, which is currently undergoing physical and technical training in Guam, plans to move to Okinawa, Japan, on the 20th and continue training, including practice games, at Ishigaki Baseball Stadium, a field training ground for the Japanese professional baseball Chiba Lotte Marines.

Hanwha, which has been at the bottom for three consecutive years since the 2020 season, also recruited first baseman and outfielder Chae Eun-seong, pitcher Lee Tae-yang, and infielder Oh Seon-jin from the FA market. This year is the last year of the 3-year contract of coach Carlos Subero, who took office while shouting to improve the constitution of the lower-ranking team. Hanwha is sweating hard at the spring camp set up in Arizona, USA to prove the results of the ‘rebuilding’ that it has been working hard on. As the blockade of Corona 19 is lifted, coach Subero, who will lead overseas training for the first time in the final year of the contract, has high expectations for Seoul High School’s ‘Ace’ rookie Kim Seo-hyun in addition to the three free agents.

Doosan, which finished last season in a shocking 9th place, declared a full-fledged rebuilding of the famous family under the leadership of Lee Seung-yeop, who was the ‘national hitter’. And the first card brought out was Yang Eui-ji’s recruitment, which was the biggest word in the FA market. Expectations are high that it will upgrade Doosan’s mound, which has a lot of young pitchers, not only with top-notch hitting, but also with seasoned command and game coordination at home plate. Doosan, which is training in Sydney, Australia, is determined to shake off the shocking humiliation of ninth place last year at once this season. 온라인카지노
