Jeong Hoon, who started the season by being named in the opening entry, was canceled on the 4th after a severe hit with 1 hit in 13 at-bats (0.077) for a month in April. Coach Sutton explained the background, saying, “Jung Hoon’s batting pace hasn’t improved since spring camp, and we decided that he needed time (to improve his hitting).”
It was not excluded from the season plan. Coach Sutton said, “Jung Hoon is an important player on our team. He is an essential player for the team to have a long season and he plays a leading role within the squad. He played many at-bats in the second team for 10 days, improving his batting rhythm and feeling. I wish I could find it,” he said. He quickly regained the batting rhythm and feel Sutton expected. The time has come for him to return to the first team and add fuel to the roaring rising team.
