Na Seung-yeop was selected by Lotte in the 2021 rookie draft and is the first rookie fielder to open the era of 500 million won in down payment. 토토사이트 When he was at Deoksu High School, he was evaluated as an elementary and high school hitter and declared his entry into the Major League.
Many clubs gave up their nominations because they announced their entry into the Major League early, but Lotte boldly nominated him, and Sung Min-gyu, the head of the team, tried to dig into the gaps where his trip to the U.S. was delayed due to various circumstances, and finally returned Na Seung-yeop’s mind. That’s how Na Seung-yeop came to wear Lotte’s uniform.
But the wall of the first team was high. Na Seung-yeop, who was evaluated as an “elementary and high school level, was frustrated with a batting average of 0.204 with two home runs and one stolen base in 60 games in the 2021 season in his first year of debut. In the end, Na decided to join the military quickly and played baseball for Sangmu Baseball Team for the past two years. Na Seung-yeop, who joined Sangmu and steadily participated in the game, has grown remarkably and was selected as the Futures League All-Star MVP last year.
Na Seung-yeop, who learned how to use his lower body from coach Park Chi-wang in Sangmu, has turned into a player who gives stability at bat. Last year, he recorded a batting average of 0.300 86 hits, seven home runs and 64 RBIs in 82 games, and this year, he recorded a batting average of 0.312 92 hits, five home runs and 57 RBIs in 84 games. Above all, the on-base percentage has risen beyond recognition. Last year, he ranked third in the Futures League with an on-base percentage of 0.443, and this year, he ranked second with a 0.435.
In modern baseball, the on-base percentage is the most notable statistic. You have to score to win, and you have to live to first base to score. The on-base percentage is a figure that better reflects the productivity of batters than the batting average, and batters with a on-base percentage of 40% are evaluated higher than those with a batting average of 30%.
This is because the on-base percentage contains the results of at-bats that are not included in the batting average. It can be seen that the on-base percentage calculation reflects everything at bat, except for the sacrifice bunt and the catcher’s defense obstruction. The batting average focuses on whether the batter hit or not, but the on-base percentage focuses on whether the batter was out or survived. It can be seen that the on-base percentage hitter is more helpful to the team than the .300 hitter.
For this reason, it is worth paying attention to Na Seung-yeop’s on-base rate, which has increased remarkably. It is also why many experts are already looking forward to what kind of performance Lotte Na Seung-yeop will perform next season.
However, Lotte needs to organize its routes. This is because Na Seung-yeop’s main position is third baseman like Han Dong-hee. Han Dong-hee is a valuable right-handed big gun infielder in the league, although he has been sluggish this season. He is called the post-Lee Dae-ho and has shown promise over the past three seasons. Attention is focusing on how Lotte will utilize the two third base resources at the center of next season’s generational change.
