‘Futures total 130 stolen bases’ outfielder Choi Seung-min, first team call-up after transferring to LG

Outfielder Choi Seung-min, the ‘hidden card’ LG Twins believe in, was called up to the first team.

LG made changes to the first team entry ahead of the 8th game of the season against the Doosan Bears in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the 28th. Choi Seung-min was registered, and Song Chan-eui went down to the 2nd division. 

Choi Seung-min, who moved the team by trade from the NC Dinos on the 18th, has been on the first team for the first time since the transfer. It’s been exactly ten days. Choi Seung-min played in two games in the Futures League with LG, and his performance was 5 at-bats, no hits, 1 run and 3 steals.

Although he did not hit, it is noteworthy that he displayed his strong point, his quick feet. His Futures League career stolen bases reached 130. At the time of the trade, LG introduced Choi Seung-min, saying, “With a quick focus, I evaluate his ability to perform drafts as a major runner, and I think he will be of great help to the team in the second half of the game.”먹튀검증

Originally, Choi Seung-min was scheduled to come up to the first team a little later, but the call-up time was accelerated due to Moon Seong-joo’s poor physical condition. LG coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop said ahead of the game that day, “Moon Seong-ju injured his heel in the course of defense the previous day, so he was put in as the designated hitter, and Moon Seong-ju was put up faster than expected.”

However, Choi Seung-min did not immediately put his name on the starting lineup.

Regarding the plan to utilize Choi Seung-min, coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop said, “I will use it as a large runner or large defense. Originally, I was going to call it to the first team after playing about 10 games.” I think I will have to adapt while playing in the military.”
