LG Twins outfielder Moon Sung-ju has signed a contract worth 200 million won per year. In the LG Twins’ announcement of the 2024 salary renewal status of LG players on the 19th, Moon Sung-joo signed a contract for 200 million won, up 150 million won from last year’s 95 million won. That’s a 110.5 percent increase. Moon, who earned 42 million won in 2022, had a breakout year that year, batting .327 (99-for-39) with six home runs and 41 RBIs, earning a 53 million won (126 percent) increase to 95 million won. It was the second consecutive year he received a raise of more than 100 percent.
Moon, who was in contention for the outfield batting title in the 2022 season until August, and whose batting dropped off at the end of the season due to a decline in fitness, surprised the coaching staff in spring training last year.
His swing became bigger. 바카라사이트 He came to Arizona with a long swing, which he tweaked during the offseason to hit long balls to be more competitive. Hitting coach Lee Ho-joon saw this and had an emergency meeting with manager Yoon Kyung-yeop, and Yoon and Lee convinced Moon. They told him that he didn’t need to change his swing to hit long balls, and that he could produce plenty of long balls with his current swing.
Moon went back to his strengths of making contact, and it worked like a charm.
When we were planning the season, there was no place for him. He had hit well in 2022, but he couldn’t fit into an outfield that included Kim Hyun-soo, Park Hae-min, Hong Chang-ki, and foreign hitter Austin Dean. Yoon had vowed to keep Lee Jae-won at first base. But when Lee suffered a side injury in an exhibition game and Austin moved to first base, the opportunity opened up for Moon, and Moon seized it. In April alone, he went 3-for-47 (106-for-37) with one home run, eight RBIs, and 19 runs scored in the bottom of the order, and in 136 games, Moon batted 2-for-9 (132-for-449) with two home runs, 57 RBIs, 77 runs scored, and 24 stolen bases.
Having set a goal of 100 hits and 10 doubles at the start of the season, Moon far exceeded it.
In the Korean Series, he continued to showcase his high-sensitivity hitting. In five games, he batted 3-for-5 (16-for-6) with three home runs, three RBIs, three runs scored, and one stolen base.
He’ll have some work to do this season. Even last year, 토토사이트 추천 he was weak in the second half. In 2022, Moon’s batting average dropped to 1-for-47 (7-for-9) in September, and last year he was 2-for-8 (16-for-62) in August and 2-for-6 (23-for-90) in September and October. He needs to improve his physicality.
A promising hitter who was drafted with the 97th pick in the 10th round of the 2018 second round has become a 200 million won hitter in just two years after moving up from the first team. It is the fruit of a hardworking hitter that Kim Hyun-soo recognizes.
