MLB.com “Lee Jeong-hoo, batting average of 0.205 and no stolen bases” SF ranking falls

San Francisco Lee Jeong-hoo

MLB.com dropped the San Francisco Giants’ power ranking from 17th to 23rd, citing Lee Jeong-hoo’s (25) poor performance as the ‘reason for the drop in ranking.’

On the 9th (Korean time), MLB.com released the second power rankings of the season for the 30 Major League Baseball (MLB) clubs.

There was a big difference from the ‘first power ranking’ made ahead of the mainland opening game.

San Francisco, which was ranked 17th before the start, fell to 23rd.

MLB.com said, “The San Francisco team expected Jeong-hoo Lee to be a spark plug (a player who boosts the team’s morale),” and added, “However, to date, Jeong-hoo Lee has a batting average of only 0.205 (8 hits in 39 at-bats) and has not succeeded in stealing a single base.” “I couldn’t do it,” he pointed out. The nuance is that Lee Jeong-hoo’s poor performance is the cause of San Francisco’s decline in ranking.

Lee Jeong-hoo, who stepped onto the MLB stage for the first time this year, was selected as San Francisco’s top hitter. He reported a hit in his MLB debut, and completed the opening four games without incident, including hitting his first home run in three games, but his batting average plummeted as he did not hit a batted ball after that.

Lee Jeong-hoo will start as the number one hitter and center fielder in the home game against the Washington Nationals on the 9th, aiming to produce hits.

The San Diego Padres, where Kim Ha-seong plays, also fell in ranking from 14th to 19th.

However, MLB.com said, “Don’t just look at the current situation. Fernando Tatis Jr. is hitting harder now than before he was disciplined (due to using banned substances),” and added, “Tatis Jr. is getting better.” highlighted.

The Los Angeles Dodgers, who were second in the power rankings before the opening, rose to first place in the ‘first power rankings after the opening’.

MLB.com cited Mookie Betts, who posted a batting average of 0.386, 5 home runs, and 11 RBI, and Shohei Ohtani, who is recovering his batting skills, as the reasons for the Dodgers’ jump to first place. 토토사이트
