“I want another catcher.” LG Twins manager Yeom Kyung-yup gave a mission to Kim Bum-seok, a “big gun prospect” who is accompanying the first team on a major tour.
Kim Bum-seok, who was selected with the seventh overall pick in the first round of the 2023 KBO Draft, visited Jamsil Stadium on the second 토토사이트 day of the Major Tour, a first-team experience program for second-team players. While he has yet to make an official first-team appearance, Kim has shown promise in 34 Futures League games so far, hitting .376 with 41 hits, six home runs, 24 RBIs, 13 runs scored and 13 runs batted in.
Bum-seok Kim has been a power hitter since his amateur days. Coach Yeom Kyung-yeop, who watched Kim’s training closely, said, “It looks good. The lines and things like that are good. His style is similar to (Park) Dong-won, but his line is much better than Dong-won’s. The swing itself has a swing that can hit far.”
“The hitting coach will tell me the basics and direction. For defense, Coach Park Kyung-wan will teach him. As a catcher, I think he will start to work on his finishing touches,” he said, adding, “I think we will have another catcher by next year’s camp.”
Until then, Kim Bum-seok was given homework. “I think he needs to lose 10 kilograms. He’s gained too much weight. I told him to keep it off until the final training. If you lose weight overnight, your body will get unhealthy, so I’ve already set a goal for them to lose a few kilograms gradually.” The team is excited about the mission.
