Noh Jin-hyuk has returned to the first team.

Lotte Giants’ Noh Jin-hyuk has returned to the first team. It’s been 17 days since he was designated for assignment last month. His position is first base.

Lotte registered Noh Jin-hyuk in the first team ahead of their game against KT Wiz at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on Saturday. Lee Joo-chan was expunged.

This season, Lotte manager Kim Tae-hyung has used veteran Jeong Hoon in left field and third base, and Han Soo-soo at first base.

Noh, who made his debut in 2012 and is in his 13th year of professional baseball, has only played first base for five games and six innings in his career. 안전놀이터 추천 He played two games (two innings) in 2019, two games (three innings) in 2020, and one game (one inning) in 2021.

He was usually used at first base in extra innings or at the end of the game due to a defensive positioning ambiguity. It was also Noh’s first appearance at first base in 1074 days since June 6, 2021, against the Hanwha Eagles.

It’s also the first time he’s started at first base since his debut. He has only played shortstop and third base in his career.

Noh is having one of the worst years of his career.

It’s almost two months into the season, and he has only 45 total at-bats in the first team. He hasn”t been able to stay in the first team for long due to his poor form.

His numbers this season are disastrous. He’s batting just 1-for-5 (6-for-39) with no home runs and two RBIs, and his OPS (on-base plus slugging percentage) is just .446. Even Lotte manager Kim Tae-hyung, who trusted Noh at the beginning of the season as a “player who can do it,” has sent him to the second team twice in frustration.

It’s no wonder the second team stage is so narrow. In his last five games, Noh has seven hits in 20 at-bats, including four home runs.

Now he just needs to show it in the first team. Lotte, incidentally, ranks last among the 10 clubs in the division with 29 team home runs this season. Veterans like Noh Jin-hyuk and Yoo Kang-nam, who were expected to hit double-digit home runs, have struggled. 토토사이트 모음 Excluding Jeon Jun-woo (7) and Reyes (5), the team’s home run leaders, three is the most.

Lotte manager Kim Tae-hyung said, “I told Noh Jin-hyuk to prepare to play first and third base defense in the second team. Sooner or later, Han Dong-hee has to go to the army, and Kim Min-sung is a right-handed hitter,” he said, adding, ‘I received reports that his batting has improved a lot, not just because he’s hitting home runs.’
