Veteran infielder Seo Gun-chang is preparing for his last chance.
The 13th game of the season between LG and SSG will be held at Jamsil Stadium on the 16th. LG is leading the league, but has won two and lost three of its last five games. The previous day, they escaped a three-game losing streak with a victory over Hanwha with a Kang Woo-cold. They have a 5.5-game lead over second-place KT, but it’s too early to rest on their laurels.
LG Twins veteran infielder Seo Geon-chang joined the first team in September as part of the expanded roster.
Seo hasn’t performed well in the first team this season. In 35 games this year, he is batting just 2-for-9. At the beginning of the season, he was expected to be the starting second baseman by his old mentor Yoon Kyung-yup, but he didn’t even make the opening roster. Due to his erratic performance, he was released from the first team on May 19.
After being traded from Kiwoom to LG during the 2021 season, Seo Gun-chang was expected to solve LG’s second base woes, but he failed to do so.
He was supposed to declare free agency for the 2022 season but opted for a second chance at free agency due to his poor record. However, his performance did not improve last year. In his 22nd season, he played in 77 games, batting 2-for-2, with a slugging percentage of no more than 3 percent.
The desperate Seo opted for free agency this season. However, his performance plummeted further. Seo’s dominance at the plate, which saw him reach the 200-hit plateau for the first time in 2014 with 201 hits, is fading.
Born in 1989. At 34 years old, Seo doesn’t have many opportunities left.
He has one last chance to redeem himself, and he could be the last man standing for LG, which is trying to win the regular season and Korean Series for the first time in 29 years, since 1994. It would be a huge boost for LG if he can play as well as he has in a long time.메이저놀이터
In big games, the experience of a veteran is invaluable. For a team that hasn’t won a championship in over 30 years, experience is the biggest concern.
Seo Gun-chang has had a terrible season this year, but if he can be LG’s go-to guy for the championship, he can make up for it in one fell swoop.
LG has 24 games left in the season. They need the veteran to step up.
