Hanwha Recruited a Backup Outfielder With 23 Years of Professional Experience At The Age of 41

Kim Kang-min, who was discussing retirement games with SSG Landers early next year, will wear the Hanwha Eagles uniform. 스포츠토토 Hanwha called out Kim Kang-min in the fourth round of the second draft held on the 22nd. It’s a surprise nomination that no one expected.

A 41-year-old veteran outfielder on the verge of retirement will be able to continue his career. Fellow student Kim Tae-kyun will play for a retired team. Initially, the focus was on SSG infielder Choi Joo-hwan. Last year, Hanwha ranked last among the 10 teams in both batting average and scoring. It is the team that needs to strengthen its offense the most next season.

An Chi-hong, an external FA free agent, was brought in to strengthen the batting lineup. It signed a six-year contract for a total of 7.2 billion won. If Choi Joo-hwan was recruited in the second draft, it was possible to rebuild the Dynamite batting lineup. However, Kiwoom Heroes, the first round ahead, took Choi Joo-hwan.

Kim Kang-min’s role in Hanwha is a backup outfielder. New foreign hitter Jonathan Peraza and Chae Eun-sung are overflowing with outfield resources such as Lee Jin-young, Moon Hyun-bin, Choi In-ho and Jang Jin-hyuk. Im Jong-chan, who was discharged from the military, will also join.

In his heyday, Kim Kang-min showed off his monstrous outfield defense. He is better than most young players even though he has overcome his difficulties. Classes don’t go away easily.

Sohn Hyuk, the head of the team, said, It is still competitive as a major and major resource. Of course, he decided to recruit based on the value of use. The decision was made in consideration of not only performance but also positive effects. General manager Son said, Our team’s young outfielders have a lot to see and learn. It will be a great help for young outfielders to grow, he said.

Kim Kang-min graduated from Gyeongbuk High School and wore the SK uniform as a first-round pick in the second round of the 2001 rookie draft. He has played in 1919 games over the past 23 years, posting a career batting average of 274 1,470 hits in 5364 times at bat, 138 home runs and 674 RBIs. This year, he recorded 2206 runs, 31 hits, two homers and seven RBIs in 70 games. Na Ah-su Oh Sun-jin will go to Lotte Giants and Kim Kang-min will join them. It’s an unexpected picture.
