KIA infielder prospect Yoon Do-hyun (20) has been named to the first team.
KIA removed infielder Hong Jong-pyo from the first team and added Yoon Do-hyun to the first team ahead of the Gwangju LG game on the 28th. Yoon Do-hyun is an infield prospect who was drafted with the 15th pick in the second round of the 2022 First-Year Player Draft. He graduated from Gwangju First High School with honors. He showed great potential in the outfield, with some calling him a rival to Kim Do-young in middle and high school.
Yoon’s first-team dreams were cut short on March 14, 2022, when he fractured his metacarpal bone while handling a fly ball in the left middle of the field against Daegu Samsung Electronics in an exhibition game. Yoon has been plagued by bad luck this season, with a hamstring injury sidelining him, but he recently caught the eye of manager Kim Jong-kook after batting .237 with three home runs, six RBIs and six runs scored in 11 games in the Futures League.토토사이트
Kim Jong-kook said two weeks ago that he needed to wait to see how Yoon Do-hyun would perform in the three-game weekend series against Doosan, but his recent performance has changed his mind. Yoon is expected to serve as an all-weather backup in the infield for the first team. The importance of backups in the KIA infield has increased in recent days, especially with the loss of star third baseman Ryu Ji-hyuk to a sore side.
