Dropped a replacement for the vacant captain → Was the burden too great… A painful mistake Geelong international student eventually expunged from the 1st team

 Was it because of too much pressure?

KIA Tigers infielder Kim Kyu-seong (26) was eliminated from the first team. KIA excluded Kim Gyu-seong from the first team entry announced on the 14th. Kim Kyu-seong, who has been playing a backup role ever since entering the opening entry on April 1st, goes to Futures (2nd division).

Kim Gyu-seong missed a straight-on hit hit by Lee Jung-hoon on the 1st and 2nd bases with no outs at the end of the third inning when the score was 0-0 against the Lotte Giants at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 13th. In this situation where it was possible to erase two runners and increase two outcounts, KIA gave up the first run and continued the crisis. Starting pitcher Mario Sanchez gave up 4 more runs after this mistake, and in the end, KIA lost to Lotte, ending the weekend’s 3-game series with a losing series.

KIA manager Kim Jong-guk replaced second baseman with Choi Jeong-yong after Kim Kyu-seong made a mistake. It was a scene that was rarely seen when KIA changed players during the innings at the beginning of the game, not at the point of the second half of the game when the KIA was injured or winning or losing this season. An analysis came out that the bench’s regret for Kim Kyu-sung’s play was reflected in the replacement. The day after the defeat in Busan, the news of the expulsion of the first team was delivered.

After finishing last season, Kim Kyu-seong took up training in Geelong Korea, an Australian professional baseball team. He proved his potential by recording a batting average of 2.8 1, 3 home runs, and an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.764 in 27 Australian league games, and he received a passing score during the camp this season and served as a backup role. Since then, he has contributed to the strength of the first team as a backup second baseman for captain Kim Seon-bin and as a major runner and defensive agent.메이저놀이터

On the 6th, KIA left Kim Kyu-seong as second baseman when Kim Sun-bin left due to a hamstring injury. Even if it was not possible to completely fill the vacant position of Kim Seon-bin, the immovable main player, Kim Kyu-seong had hopes that he would settle down through his first-team experience. Kim Kyu-seong played a role in the offense, recording 3 hits in 9 at-bats and a batting average of 30% after Kim Sun-bin left. However, he was very disappointed in the most important defensive part.

With the exception of Kim Kyu-seong, KIA is in a situation where it has to start looking for a new second baseman alternative. Currently available second base resources are infield utility Choi Jeong-yong (26) and fourth-year veteran Hong Jong-pyo (23). From the 15th, attention is focused on KIA’s choice ahead of three consecutive matches with Kiwoom Heroes during the week.
