“Lee Won-seok is adjusting well.”
Lee Won-seok is now a member of Kiwoom Heroes rather than Samsung Lions. He left familiar Samsung through a trade on the 27th of last week and wore a Kiwoom uniform. Instead of sending Lee Won-seok to Kiwoom, Samsung received pitcher Kim Tae-hoon and the right to pick in the 3rd round of the 2024 rookie draft.
Lee Won-seok is playing an active role as soon as he comes to Kiwoom. He is playing against Gocheok KT Wiz on the 27th and is making a big success with 9 hits, 1 RBI and 1 point in 4 games. He has a multi-hit streak in three consecutive games.
His batting average was .362 before coming to Kiwoom, but now he has reached .400. He is tied for first place in batting with LG Twins Kim Hyun-soo. He is also fearless, ranking first in on-base percentage (0.494) and sixth in slugging percentage (0.507).
The day before was the day Wonseok Lee came to say hello to Rapac. Lee Won-seok, who has become an enemy, was greeted by Samsung fans with applause. Lee Won-seok bowed to the crowd, starter David Buchanan greeted Lee Won-seok with applause, and Kang Min-ho gave a high-five.
Director Hong Won-ki Kiwoom,메이저놀이터 whom I met on the 3rd, said, “Because I am a veteran, I don’t just scream. However, seeing fellow hitters come in after hitting a home run, or cheering them on when they come in with a good hit, I think I’m adapting well,” he smiled.
Lee Won-seok will also play as the fifth hitter and first baseman in the game on the 3rd. The starter against him that day was Oh Seung-hwan, who was his best friend.
On the other hand, Kiwoom is Lee Jung-hoo (center fielder) – Park Chan-hyuk (designated hitter) – Kim Hye-seong (2nd baseman) – Russell (shortstop) – Lee Won-seok (3rd baseman) – Lee Hyeong-jong (right fielder) – Lim Byeong-wook (left fielder) – Kim Hui-jib (3rd baseman) – Lee Ji-young (catcher) ) in order. The starting pitcher is Ariel Furado.
