Anticipation for Guillermo Heredia, the new foreign hitter of SSG Landers, is growing.

The SSG team headed to Florida, USA via Incheon International Airport on the 30th of last month. While SSG’s new foreign players joined locally, they started preparing for the season in earnest from the 1st.

Foreign batter Heredia’s presence is growing. Hitting coach Lee Jin-young expected, “In a situation where there are many giant hitters in our team, there are many advantages as a mid-to-long-distance hitter with speed and contact ability.”

Born in Cuba, Heredia started his career in the Cuban league and played for Cuba in the 2013 World Baseball Classic. He later signed with the Seattle Mariners in 2016 and made his big league debut.

He went through the Tampa Bay Rays, Pittsburgh Pirates, New York Mets, and Atlanta Braves, and recorded a batting average of .231, 27 homers, and 114 RBIs in 591 major league games over seven seasons. 카지노사이트

He is evaluated as a ‘higher version’ of outfielder Juan Lagares from ‘Gold Glover’ who played as a substitute last year. At the time of the recruitment, the club evaluated that he had “stable skills in all aspects, including not only hitting indicators, but also defense and running.”

He also said, “I expect to show active movement and productive batting ability on the ground.” Coach Lee, who saw Heredia at the campground, said, “I saw Heredia for the first time in training yesterday, but he has the advantage of fast bat speed and contact ability. He seems to be a versatile player who can create a lot of opportunities for center hitters with a lot of on-base in the top lineup.”

Coach Lee said, “He has a good personality on the field as well as baseball. I expect that he will adapt well with other players in a short period of time.”
