Expectations are high whether the Lotte Giants and Doosan Bears will be able to smile with the recruitment of the hostess.
The 2023 professional baseball demonstration game, which shows the results of Stove League beads of sweat, is less than a week away. Lotte and Doosan, who had a disappointing season last year, were the busiest in the Stove League. Ahead of the 2023 season, both teams reinforced the catcher, which was considered a weakness through free agency. 먹튀검증
Last year, Lotte finished the season in 8th place with a win rate of 0.457 with 64 wins, 74 losses and 4 draws. Lotte showed weakness in defense. This is because WAAwithADJ (defensive win contribution to average, including position correction) -5.788 and RAAwithADJ (defense scoring contribution to average) -56.97 in the defense index, which was the lowest in the league.
In particular, Lotte ranked at the bottom of the league with 0.779 in the 2021 season and 8th with 0.576 in the 2022 season in Pass/9 (blowball + foil per 9 innings), showing a lack of blocking. There is also the influence of the Lotte pitching team, which uses a lot of breaking pitches, but it has been pointed out that it is a weakness in the Lotte catcher defense itself.
