There is a man who became the only hope for the lowest-ranking KT Wiz. That is Moon Sang-cheol (32).
KT, led by coach Lee Kang-cheol, is currently at the bottom of the league. Season 9 wins, 21 losses, 2 draws, the only one in the league who is unable to win a double-digit multiplier and is not gaining strength.
Even before the start of the season, the evil spirit was injured, and it continues to this day. Even if only the key players missing from the current first-team entry are pitcher Ju Kwon-Kim Min-soo-So Hyung-jun, infielder Hwang Jae-gyun, and outfielder Bae Jeong-dae-Kim Min-hyeok. Center hitter Park Byung-ho is also not in 100% condition. Recently, he has been playing only as a pinch hitter.

There is a player who gives hope to KT. That is Moon Sang-cheol. It is no exaggeration to say that after his debut he is performing at his best. Moon Sang-cheol, who was called up on the 12th of last month, has played 22 games and recorded a batting average of .361, 22 hits, 3 homers, 12 RBIs, 5 runs, and OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of .953. It’s because he hasn’t yet filled the required at-bats, which is higher than Noh Si-hwan’s .359 of the Hanwha Eagles, the league’s No. 1 batting average.
In particular, in the match against the Lotte Giants in Suwon on the 12th, he recorded his first personal home run and is the main player who broke the team’s 6-game losing streak. If you limit his recent 10G, he is fierce with a batting average of .441, 15 hits, 2 homers, 6 RBIs and 3 runs scored. He also has only three multi-hit games out of his last five games. Even if it’s hot, it’s too hot.
Even until last season, Moon Sang-cheol was just called a ten thousand year old gun prospect. He raised expectations by hitting 58 homers and 179 RBIs in the Futures League in 2017 and 2018, but became small when only the first team came. In the 2020 season, he played in 74 games, the most since his professional debut, recording 40 hits, 8 home runs, and 25 RBIs, and played a sparkling performance, but then faltered again. In the 2021 season, he batted .219 with 21 hits, 2 homers and 16 RBIs in 53 games, and last season, he played in the fewest 28 games since his debut and had a batting average of .224 with 11 hits, 2 homers and 4 RBIs.카지노사이트

Moon Sang-cheol was not included in the Arizona spring camp, and had to remain in Korea to prepare for the season.
Did he say that if he waited, he would have an opportunity? He seized the opportunity that came his way, Moon Sang-cheol. He has been recording hits all season, regardless of left pitcher, right pitcher, or under. He is batting average of .375 (6-for-16) left-handed pitching all season, .333 (13-for-39) right-handed, and under .500 (3-for-6). This is a high figure considering that his career batting average for left pitchers is .211 (31 hits in 147 at bats), right pitchers are .242 (80 hits in 330 at bats), and under .233 (24 hits in 103 at bats).
How will Moon Sang-cheol’s season be? Whichever way you look at it, it is certain that he is the hottest player in KT’s lineup right now.
