Lee Jung-hoo, who has hit in four consecutive games ‘to hit + walk + steal’, is expected to rise vertically over gusts of wind

Lee Jung-hoo started as the first hitter in the 2024 Major League exhibition game against the Cleveland Guardians at Goodyear Ball Park in Arizona on the 4th (Korea time).

Lee successfully got on base from his first at bat in the top of the first inning. He calmly picked out the ball of opposing starting pitcher Tanner Bibi (24), and managed to survive by garnering a walk. Lee garnered his first walk in the exhibition game, and even scored a run when third batter Ramonte Wade Jr. hit a two-run homer. It was Lee’s third run in the exhibition game.

Lee Jung-hoo, who handled Jose Ramirez (31)’s liner-like ball neatly in defense in the bottom of the first inning, stepped into the batter’s box in the top of the second inning with two outs and a first base, and stepped down with a grounder to first base.

Lee’s batting was remarkable in the fourth inning. Lee took the batter’s box with runners on the first and second bases with two outs in the bottom of the fourth inning when his team faced off 2-2, and Lee hit a timely hit to the right field off opposing pitcher Hunter Gaddis (25) to bring home runner Blake Sabol (26). (Score 3-2) Lee’s RBI was his second in an exhibition game since the game against Arizona.

Afterwards, Lee Jung-hoo even succeeded in stealing the first base in the exhibition game, responding to the expectations of manager Bob Melvin, who said, “[Lee Jung-hoo] is quite fast.”

Lee finished today’s game by replacing his pinch hitter Tyler Fitzgerald in the top of the sixth inning. The final result was one hit, one walk, one RBI, one run scored, and one stolen base in two times at bat. Lee, who has recorded hits in all four exhibition games, is living up to San Francisco’s expectations by posting a batting average of 0.455 OPS 1.318, although it is a small sample.

What’s more encouraging is that Lee is showing off his strengths in the KBO League. Lee is recording five hits (one homer) and one walk at 12-bats in exhibition games. His on-base percentage is at .500, and he has only struck out one time. He has demonstrated why he showed interest in the Major League in person.

San Francisco recruited Lee Jung-hoo and right-handed hitter Jorge Soler (32) this winter, and has been continuing to strengthen itself by signing a three-year, $54 million (about KRW 72.1 billion) contract with Matt Chapman (30), who was recently evaluated as the biggest infielder of the FA (Free Contract). Since San Francisco has been criticized for not having any major recruitment recently and lacking star players, the performance of “Korean superstar” Lee Jung-hoo is even more welcome.

San Francisco won the game by 6-5 points in the ninth inning when Isabel Mungua (25), hit the winning home run.

San Francisco will play its third victory in an exhibition game against the Colorado Rockies tomorrow (5th).
