Doosan Bears outfielder Kang Jin-seong and SSG Landers right-hander Kim Jeong-woo were traded one-on-one.
SSG traded 24-year-old young gun Kim Jeong-woo for Doosan outfielder Kang Jin-seong.
Kim Jeong-woo,안전놀이터 who moved to Doosan, is a pitcher who joined SK (SSG predecessor) as the first nomination in 2018. He has a first-team record of only one game in 2019, and this year he played as a closer in the Futures League. He was 2-1, 4-year-old, and 4-year-old in 14 appearances in the Futures League this season.
Kang Jin-seong, who moved from Doosan to SSG, joined NC in the 4th round of 2012 with the 33rd overall. He played an active role in NC, showing off his one-shot ability, but transferred to Doosan as a compensation player for Park Kun-woo, who transferred while signing a FA contract with NC in 2022.
Kang Jin-seong, who moved the team, played in 40 games last year and was sluggish with a 106.3. He didn’t show his presence in the new team. He wore a Doosan uniform this year and was recording 1 hit in 3 at-bats in 3 games.
Wearing the new SSG uniform.
Kang Jin-seong swinging vigorously.
Kang Jin-seong immediately joined the SSG squad on the 25th when the trade was announced. Kang Jin-seong, who greeted his new colleagues, posed in a new uniform at Landers Field.
Kang Jin-seong made a big contribution to the NC championship in 2020. In the 2020 season, he played an active role as NC’s first baseman and played a big role in 121 games with a batting average of 309, 122 hits, 12 home runs, and 70 RBIs.
I look forward to seeing if Kang Jin-seong, who was sluggish last year, will be able to fly again at Landers Field, who will wear his third professional uniform.
