He made his presence known at the same time as joining the 1st team camp.
On the 21st, Samsung held a blue and white match at Akama Stadium in Onna-son, Okinawa, Japan. The result was an 8-7 victory for the White team.
In the victory of the white team, there was a big success of Kim Dong-yeop.
In the first at-bat, Kim Dong-yeop, who withdrew with a floating ball to right field, hit a big ball in the second at-bat. In the bottom of the 4th inning, when he was trailing 1-6, he hit two run fours from 2nd out and 1st base. It was a signal flare for the pursuit.
And at the bottom of the 6th inning, when the score was 3-7, he completed a big inning by hitting 2 RBIs and 2 bases with 2 fourth bases loaded. After that, a series of timely hits came out, completing the band electrode.
On this day, Kim Dong-yeop recorded 2 hits (1 home run) and 4 RBIs in 3 at-bats.
Kim Dong-yeop is from overseas. He joined the Chicago Cubs in 2009. After returning to Korea, he wore the uniform of SK Wyverns (predecessor of SSG Landers) with the 86th overall ranking in the 9th round in the 2016 2nd draft. At that time, during the three seasons playing for SK, he participated in 306 games, marked a batting average of 0.275, 55 homers and 169 RBIs. Unfortunately, he did not live up to expectations, and after the end of the 2018 season, Nexen (currently Kiwoom) joined in a triangle trade to wear a Samsung uniform. 먹튀검증
The potential never exploded. To make matters worse, as injuries and sluggishness continued, last year, he only posted a batting average of 0.221, 2 home runs and 4 RBIs in 30 games.
In the end, Kim Dong-yeop was not included in the first team roster for this spring camp. He was pushed out by younger players and had to start camp in the second team. However, he improved his condition well, and joined the first team camp that day. And at the same time as he joined, he appealed for his presence.
Starting team Park Yong-min was sluggish with 5 runs in 2 innings (3 earned runs), but Sang-min Lee (1 run in 1 inning), Choong-yeon Choi (no run in 1 inning), Jae-Ik Lee (no run in 1 inning), and Yong-ha Kim (1 run in 1 inning), who came out as bullpens, were the least. He blocked it with a goal and contributed to the victory.
On the other hand, in the blue team, Lee Won-seok and Kim Jae-seong recorded multi-hits side by side, but the team’s defeat faded the light. The mound couldn’t stand the big innings of 5 runs in one inning. Starter Yang Chang-seop gave up 1 run in 1 inning, and right-handers Lee Seung-hyun and Park Se-woong pitched a scoreless pitch in 1 inning each. It was disappointing that Moon Yong-ik allowed 2 runs in 1 inning and Seo-jun Kim allowed 5 runs in 2 innings.
