KT genius hitter Kang Baek-ho is preparing to return to the 1st team in earnest from the 2nd team.
KT coach Lee Kang-cheol met with reporters ahead of the 7th game of the season against the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League NC held at Suwon KT Wiz Park on the 30th and reported the current situation of Kang Baek-ho, who is preparing to return to the 1st team.
Kang Baek-ho was excluded from the first team entry prior to the Suwon Kiwoom match on the 9th. The reason for the expungement announced by the club at the time was a cold. He was absent from the game against Lotte on the 7th and 8th due to a sudden deterioration in physical condition, and was eventually notified of the second army. Director Lee said at the time, “Kang Baek-ho is not in good condition. He gave me a break to rest until I got better,” he said.
Kang Baek-ho is known to have complained of considerable fatigue in both his physical and mental health, in addition to his cold body aches. Along with the forced march that started with the 2023 WBC (World Baseball Classic), the national team and the team made mistakes one after another, and the mind and body were exhausted. Accordingly, Kang Baek-ho devoted himself entirely to rest and recovery without participating in the game.
Kang Baek-ho finally appeared at Suwon KT Wiz Park ahead of the match against Suwon Lotte on the 22nd. And while the team went on an expedition to Gwangju and Daejeon, he remained at Wiz Park and raised his pace through individual training, and was selected to participate in the rehabilitation team practice match that day. Although the game was canceled due to rain, Kang Baek-ho will play in the Futures League soon after practicing. As much as he devoted himself to his recovery, this time he plans to make sure to build his body in the 2nd group and return to the 1st group.
If so, when will Kang Baek-ho be included in the first team entry? Director Lee said, “It is up to you to do it. He has to show good form in the Futures League so he can register for the first team entry. We will monitor the situation,” he said.메이저놀이터
Fortunately for KT, despite Kang Baek-ho’s absence, a new face named Ahn Chi-young has appeared and is doing his part. In addition, Cho Yong-ho was also called up, and the depth of the outfield became thicker. This is the reason why the command tower is not in a hurry to make Kang Baek-ho return.
Meanwhile, KT, who meets NC starter Taylor Widener, is Kim Min-hyuk (left fielder) – Kim Sang-soo (shortstop) – Anthony Alford (designated hitter) – Park Byung-ho (1st baseman) – Hwang Jae-gyun (3rd baseman) – Kang Hyun-woo (catcher) – Cho Yong-ho (right fielder) – Park Kyung-soo (2nd baseman) – Baejeongdae (center fielder) The starting lineup was organized. The starting pitcher is William Cuevas.
