Lee Jung-hoo (San Francisco Giants) is on the verge of becoming more isolated.

San Francisco placed Jorge Soler, a right-handed batter with a bad right shoulder, on the 10-day injured list on the 9th (Korea time). According to MLB.COM, the official website of the Major League Baseball (MLB), Soler felt more than his shoulder while swinging last weekend against the Philadelphia Phillies. At first, the pain was so severe that it felt like he had dislocated his shoulder. Although his condition improved in the past few days, he decided that he could not play, so he was excluded from the IL by retroactively applying the date to the 6th.

Soler is a slugger who signed a three-year contract worth a total of 42 million U.S. dollars ahead of this season. He was one of the key resources that San Francisco recruited along with Lee Jung-hoo to strengthen its batting lineup, but showed little performance in the game. His batting average of 0.202 (24 hits in 119 times at bat), five homers and eight RBIs in this season. His OPS, which combines his on-base percentage (0.294) and his slugging percentage (0.361), is low at 0.655. Despite the fact that his overall batting index has declined significantly, he was tied for second in homers after Michael Confoto (six homers).토토사이트넷

For San Francisco, which already has weak batting performance (21st place in home runs on its team), Soler’s departure would be more painful. To make matters worse, San Francisco’s center hitter Matt Chapman (38 games batting average of 0.211 with an OPS of 0.601) is also not in a good mood.

Meanwhile, Lee Jung-hoo started the game as a center fielder at the leadoff against the Colorado Rockies, recording one hit, one run and one RBI in five times at bat. His batting average for this season is 0.262 (38 hits in 145 times at bat). Although it is his first season since his MLB debut, he is leading the San Francisco lineup as the No. 1 hitter in his team. Lee’s batting performance is not that outstanding. As San Francisco batters are generally sluggish, however, his performance is easily highlighted.
