Brian O’Grady (31), a foreign hitter for the Hanwha Eagles, appeared in 10 demonstration games, all batting 4 times. He changed slightly from game to game, but he played a role in holding the center of the batting line by being placed between Chae Eun-seong in the 3rd and No Si-hwan in the 5th.
The core of Hanwha’s attack that has changed this season are the newly added Chae Eun-seong and O’Grady. They create opportunities on the center line. You have to save the chance.
O’Gredi, a left fielder, hit three homers and racked up nine RBIs in 10 games. Along with Noh Si-hwan, he is tied for first place in home runs on the team, and is the only one in RBI.
Even though it is an adaptation stage, there are regrets. The exhibition game batting average was 4 hits in 29 at-bats in 32 at-bats, and the batting average was 103 8. Three of the four hits are home runs. It’s a record that catches your eye quickly.
Also, his slugging percentage is 4/48, but his on-base percentage is 1/8. The fourth hitter’s OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) is 0.636. If a foreign hitter has this kind of performance, if he is in the position of the coaching staff or the front desk, there is no choice but to worry. No matter how much it is an exhibition game, it is a batting average of 10%.
However, coach Carlos Subero saw it differently. He said, “There are times when the numbers of demonstration games or practice games come out opposite to the regular season, and sometimes they are meaningless. There is one positive side.
This targeted ball definitely swings on its own. In this case, the quality of batting balls is very good.”
Even if the batting average is low, you just need to be strong in chances. He praised it, saying, “I am showing it. 먹튀검증
The number 4 hitter can hit the ‘oriental shot’ when it is most important.
