Joining the fostering player → Last year’s 2nd team battle → Entered the 1st team as a major runner → Main second baseman → Stolen king + Golden Glove competitor. Become the best Cinderella in the 9th year
I thought it would shine for a while. no. Rather, it becomes stronger. After becoming the main player, he aims for the Doru King. The batting average does not come down from 30%. Now, he is rapidly emerging as a Golden Globe nominee. Shin Min-jae of the LG Twins is making the 2023 season his own year.
Shin Min-jae graduated from Incheon High School and stepped into the pros as a foster player for the Doosan Bears in 2015. Afterwards, Shin Min-jae, who moved to LG in the second team draft, was registered as an official player for the first time in 2019 and stepped on the first team. At the time he played 81 games as an assistant runner and defensive agent. Unfortunately, the number of first-team games decreased as he went, and last year he only appeared in 14 games. He almost made a living in District 2. he was gradually forgotten.
Manager Yeom Gyeong-yeop took over and was called back to the first team. He was selected as the runner-up agent as the fastest player. He led his team to victory with a crucial stolen base, and then gradually expanded his territory by hitting the final hit.안전놀이터
Due to the sluggish performance of second baseman Seo Geon-chang, the position was lost. Kim Min-seong started as the starting pitcher at second base, but Shin Min-jae stepped into second base little by little. His hitting was unexpectedly good. As he showed his good hitting, his chances to start gradually increased, and before he knew it, he split into Kim Min-seong and the platoon system. During the period Kim Min-sung was missing due to injury, he held on to second base alone.
Now, if you ask who LG’s second baseman is, you can say Shin Min-jae. He has appeared in 82 games by the 13th and has a batting average of 3.3 3 (49 hits in 147 at bats) with 17 RBIs and 30 points. He succeeded in stealing 27 bases, leading Doosan Su-bin Su-bin (26) by one point.
Now it’s time to look a little higher. The Golden Globes are coming. There are fierce competitors.
Kim Hye-sung of the Kiwoom Heroes, Park Min-woo of the NC Dinos, and An Chi-hong of the Lotte Giants,
second baseman Golden Glove winner Kim Hye-seong is doing well this year as well. He is batting 3.2 (135 hits in 422 at-bats) with 5 home runs, 41 RBIs and 22 stolen bases. Park Min-woo also posted a batting average of .297 (91 hits in 306 bats), 1 home run, 27 RBIs and 18 stolen bases. An Chi-Hong has a batting average of .296 (95 hits in 321 bats) with 5 homers and 48 RBIs.
From the name value, there is a clear difference from Shin Min-jae. All three are Golden Glove winners at second base.
He started as a replacement member in the beginning, and since he mainly plays as the 9th hitter, the number of at-bats is small, but if Shin Min-jae wins the stealing title, he can enter the competition as a title holder. As a player who solved LG’s second baseman’s worries, if LG wins the championship, it will be a plus for Shin Min-jae.
How will Shin Min-jae, who has been active as a main player in the first team after 9 years of his debut, end this season? It is clear that he is LG’s Cinderella this season.
