Even if you hit 2 hits, your batting average will drop, a man with 70% in exhibition games… Kim Ha-sung’s colleague Soto wakes up

 Even if you get 2 hits in 3 at-bats, your batting average will drop. Superstar Juan Soto (25), who failed to live up to expectations after moving to San Diego last year, is wielding hard blows every day in demonstration games, revealing the prospects for the 2023 season. 

Soto started as the second left fielder in the 2023 major league demonstration game against the Seattle Mariners held at Peoria Stadium in Peoria, Arizona, USA on the 3rd (hereinafter Korean time) and played an active role with 2 hits and 1 RBI in 3 at-bats. 

From his first at-bat, his recent good feeling was the same. He appeared as a safe first baseman in the first inning when it was 0-0, and hit a heavy hit against Seattle starter Logan Gilbert, succeeding in hitting in four exhibition games in a row. Soto reached second base on Nelson Cruz’s hit, but failed to score on the follow-up. 

In the second inning with a 2-0 lead, 2nd out and 3rd base chance, he met the changed pitcher Travis Kuhn and hit a timely hit with 1 RBI running away. It was the moment when he hit multi-hits in three consecutive games. 

Soto then took the lead in the fifth inning for a 3–2 lead and retired on a grounder to second base to finish the game with two hits in three at-bats. He was replaced by Preston Tucker with the defensive start in the fifth inning. Soto’s batting average in the exhibition game, which hit multi-hits, fell from 75% to 7227.

As can be seen from his batting average, Soto’s batting sense is at its peak. After reporting his first hit against the Seattle Mariners on February 25, his first game, he met the Arizona Diamondbacks on the 27th and performed a one-man show with 3 hits and 5 RBIs in 4 at-bats including a home run. swung Soto’s record in 4 demonstration games reached a batting average of 70.27 (8 hits in 11 at-bats), 1 home run, 7 RBIs, and an OPS of 2.023. 

Reborn as a major league superstar at a young age, Soto moved from the Washington Nationals to San Diego through a trade in August of last year. Unlike the Washington days, after the transfer, he did not live up to expectations with a batting average of 2.36, 6 home runs, 16 RBIs, and an OPS of .778 in 52 games after the transfer. .토토사이트

Meanwhile, San Diego was defeated 4-5 by Seattle despite Soto’s performance. Fernando Tatis Jr., who is being punished for taking a banned substance, scored 1 point with 1 walk in 2 at-bats, and Tucker from KIA was silent with 2 at-bats and no hits.
