After weekend 3-game sweep, NC deletes Park Gun-woo from first team… NC says “it’s not an injury issue”

For the first time this season, NC’s star outfielder Park Gun-woo has been dropped from the first team roster.

According to the player registration status posted by the KBO on its official website on Wednesday, a total of 10 players, including Park Gun-woo, were removed from the first team on Monday, a day off from professional baseball games.

Park has been one of NC’s top hitters this season, batting .286 with 73 hits, seven home runs, and 41 RBIs. While his batting average is in the low 20s this season, his career batting average is .324, which ranks third all-time and second among active hitters with more than 3,000 at-bats. The all-time leader is Kiwoom’s Lee Jung-hoo (0.339). “It’s not an injury or anything unusual about his body,” the NC team said of Park’s expungement. If it’s not an injury issue, it’s hard to understand why the team would remove the centerpiece of their batting order from the first team.메이저사이트

Kiwoom also removed outfielder Lim Byung-wook and national team catcher Kim Dong-heon from the first team roster. Lim Byung-wook, who hit .246 on the season, has slumped to a .207 average in his last 10 games, while “high school rookie” Kim Dong-heon, who was selected for the Hangzhou Asian Games, will head to the Futures (second-tier) League to readjust after serving as the backup catcher since the start of the season.

The Samsung Lions, who have slipped to the bottom of the standings, will call up outfielder Kim Dong-yeop and infielder Kim Ho-jae, while the Lotte Giants, who were swept by the Doosan Bears in a three-game series over the weekend, will remove pitcher Shin Jung-rak and pitcher Choi Yi-jun from the roster. The Hanwha Eagles, who saw their recent eight-game winning streak come to an end with a loss to Samsung on Feb. 2, removed pitcher Nam Ji-min and pitcher Jang Ji-su from their roster, while the SSG Landers expunged pitcher Song Young-jin.
