“I’m registering on the 29th.”
Guillermo Heredia, 32, SSG’s “filial foreign bat,” is back. He shook off his muscle injury and digested a live game. Manager Kim Won-hyung (51) had a smile on his face. He is hoping for additional effects.
“Heredia played in the Futures game,” said Kim Won-hyung ahead of the 27th game against Jamsil Doosan. She will register on Tuesday (29). We definitely felt a void, like we were missing a No. 4 hitter. It was a negative for the team because he left when he had good pace.”
In 85 games this season, Heredia is batting .332 with 11 home runs, 58 RBIs, 10 doubles, a .396 on-base percentage, a .492 slugging percentage and an .888 OPS. It’s no exaggeration to say that he’s one of the best hitters in the league beyond SSG.
The problem is injuries. He hasn’t played since the last 3 days against Suwon KT. It’s because of an injury. On the 4th, he left due to an injury to the anterior left thigh muscle (iliopsoas). It was expunged on the 4th, and he still hasn’t returned.
The body has recovered. Played in the Futures League against Doosan in Icheon on the 26th and 27th. On the 26th, he went 2-for-3 with a run scored, and on the 27th, he went 0-for-2.
The Futures League record doesn’t matter anyway. The important thing is that Heredia played well. He gave the OK sign, and manager Kim Won-hyung decided to call him up. On the 29th, it’s against Munhak Keum.
He is not a typical ‘big gun’ style hitter. Instead, he hits well and runs well. He also produces a lot of long balls. That’s why coach Kim Won-hyung bats Heredia in the fourth spot. His home field is the hitter-friendly SSG-Landers Field, which is a plus.
Without Heredia, Choi felt lonely. I’ve been used to batting fourth for a long time, but I’m more used to batting third. This season, she has also enjoyed the ‘umbrella effect’ in front of Eredia. As an opponent, it’s not easy to play against Choi with Eredia behind her.
It certainly shows in her record. Through the last three days, Choi is batting .315 with 20 home runs, 63 RBIs, a .399 on-base percentage, a .577 slugging percentage, and a .976 OPS in 83 games.
However, in the 18 games over the next four days without Heredia, the team batted just 0.206 with three home runs, eight RBIs, and a 0.727 OPS. The word “plummet” comes to mind. He’s even lost a bit of ground to Noh in the home run race.
Now things are different. Heredia comes in right behind Choi. As an opponent, it’s easy to get angry at Choi for avoiding him. And for the team as a whole, the weight of the batting lineup increases. Without Heredia, the team’s batting average (0.248) and OPS (0.683) dropped to ninth place.메이저사이트
The team has also dropped to third in the standings. They need to climb back up. Bat power is a must. Heredia returns, but the entire team could change. Boosters are on.
