KT Wiz’s Kang Baek-ho (24) made his first appearance in a practice game for the franchise in about three weeks.온라인카지노
Kang Baek-ho batted second and started in right field in a practice game against the Hanwha Eagles developmental team at Iksan Baseball Stadium on the 1st. After being dropped from the first-team roster last month due to cold symptoms, Kang entered a rest period to recover from physical and mental fatigue. The game was his first practice in about three weeks since he was suspended against the Sajik Lotte Giants on 6 March.
After striking out in his first at-bat, Kang Baek-ho hit a sacrifice fly in his second at-bat. The ball was caught just in front of the left-centre field fence. In the third, he grounded out to shortstop, in the fourth, he struck out, and in the final at-bat, he flied out to third base to end the game. His final line was 4-for-4 with a walk and an RBI.
KT head coach Lee Kang-cheol revealed Kang Baek-ho’s plans ahead of the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ match against NC Dinos at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on Monday. “It’s still a long way (to join the first team). He needs to play in the Futures League,” he said, adding, “He’s a player who should be in the team, but he needs to recover completely,” adding that he will take his time until he is back to full fitness.
KT has been finding its form over time, going 15-8 last month (June) with a winning percentage of 0.652. In addition, backup resources such as Moon Sang-cheol (32) and Ahn Chi-young (24), who have been playing first base and right field in place of Kang Baek-ho, have been performing adequately, so there is no need to push for a call-up.
Meanwhile, Kang Baek-ho is batting .276 (50-for-181) with five home runs, 29 RBIs and an OPS of 0.771 in 49 games this season. He can certainly hit, so if he can stay healthy and make the first team, KT could have a new offensive option.
