The excitement within the San Francisco Giants organization for the “Grandson of the Wind,” Jung-Hoo Lee, 26, is soaring. As the Giants wrap up their exhibition games and approach the start of the regular season, they are already confident of his success.

As the San Francisco Chronicle reported on July 27, the Giants are enthusiastic about Lee. Here’s what they have to say about their new leadoff man,” and reported the team’s internal evaluation and expectations for Lee.

According to the report, fellow San Francisco outfielder Mike Yastrzemski is not only confident in Lee’s success, but also believes he will be one of the smartest hitters in the entire league. He expects Lee to hit few bad pitches this year, and he doesn’t think he’ll have many easy outs.

“We’re looking at how easy it is for him to get out of the batter’s box,” Yastrzemski said. I set the bar at seven, and I’m going to go lower than that,” he said. “It’s not just the first week or the first month. It’s the whole season. This is for real. That’s how impressive he’s been.”

San Francisco hitting coach Pat Burrell also said, “I’d take less than seven. He’s really focused. There’s a lot of intent in what he does. He knows what stage he’s in, and he wants it,” adding that he was confident he was ready for his major league debut.

After hearing the praise from his teammates and coaches,

Lee laughed and said, “I don’t deserve it,” adding, 바카라사이트 “I haven’t started the regular season yet. I need to adapt more. I’ll probably have 100 at-bats like that,” he said.

Coach Burrell said, “He definitely doesn’t follow the pitch. He makes a ton of contact. We don’t say anything about his swing or what he’s doing because we like what he’s doing.” “I have so much praise for him that I don’t want to say anything more. I think he’s going to take the big leagues by storm. There will be adjustments as the season goes on, but by the end of the season, we’ll be saying, ‘That was a great sign,'” he said, adding that he is confident in Lee’s success.

“He’s not going to make a pitcher comfortable in any situation,” Yastrzemski said, “and it’s fun to watch him play defense. Everything looks so easy, so fluid. He looks so comfortable,” he said, adding that he also praised his defense in center field.

An American League (AL) scout who saw Lee for the first time this spring said, “San Francisco got a good player, and I don’t think he’s going to miss a beat. He’s going to be the best player the Giants have acquired this offseason.” The Giants added two-time Cy Young Award winner Blake Snell, four-time Gold Glove winner Matt Chapman, and former AL home run king Jorge Soler, but Lee was expected to be their biggest success.

He’s not worried about skill or technical issues.

As the San Francisco Chronicle put it, “The biggest difference baseball-wise for Lee may not be a fastball or a slider, but the daily games he plays. The KBO season is 144 games with a Monday off day. He played only 86 games last year because of an ankle injury, so San Francisco will be careful to manage him early in the season.

The San Francisco Chronicle also reported, “Off the field, the cultural adjustment is going well. Lee is also getting help around him. His mother will be with him throughout the season. He also has one of his dogs, a Chihuahua named Lua, and his other dog, a Pomeranian named Kao, is too old to stay in Korea.

“Lee Jung-hoo loves Korean dramas and K-pop, 토토사이트 추천 and sings Korean ballads in karaoke. He loves all things American, including steak, In-N-Out, Netflix, and music, and he enjoys learning English and understands it well enough to answer questions without a translator.

After missing time with side and hamstring soreness in the exhibition games, Lee finished 13 games with a .425 on-base percentage, .486 slugging percentage, .911 OPS, one home run, five RBIs, six runs scored, five walks, four triples, and two stolen bases. He will start the season opener against the San Diego Padres at Petco Park on April 29, batting first and playing center field. He will bat first in his debut against San Diego Padres starter Darvish Yu.
