[OSEN=Busan, Reporter Cho Hyeong-rae] Lotte Giants foreign player Jack Rex is not in very good shape.

Lotte coach Larry Sutton explained Jack Rex’s condition ahead of the match against the KIA Tigers at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 20th.

Lotte has a change in the lineup on this day. The starting lineup consisted of Ahn Kwon-soo (right fielder) Kim Min-seok (center fielder) Koh Seung-min (1st baseman) Rex (designated hitter) Jeon Jun-woo (left fielder) Roh Jin-hyeok (shortstop) Park Seung-wook (2nd baseman) Han Dong-hee (3rd baseman) Jeong Bo-geun (catcher). 

Rex plays as the designated hitter and Jeon Jun-woo plays left field defense. Jeong Bo-geun wears a catcher’s mask to match starting pitcher Dan Strayley. Gangnam Yoo takes a break. 

Director Sutton first explained Rex’s condition. In the game on the 18th, Rex provided an excuse for conceding by throwing a throw. In the game on the 19th, he showed a slow pursuit of the batted ball. In the game the previous day, he was out of the game during defense in the top of the 7th inning. These were scenes that could be interpreted as a lack of concentration.

However, manager Sutton shook his head at the opinion that it was a lack of concentration. He said, “It’s not a problem of poor concentration. I think that’s because I didn’t keep up with my physical condition. I’m in pain because my knee is inflamed. That’s why I had difficulty defending the last two games. That’s why I’m taking on the designated hitter today.” He explained, “Rex tried his best, but I think that his appearance came out because his physical condition did not keep up.”

In addition, it was explained that the selection of Park Seung-wook was due to the compatibility with KIA selection Adonis Medina. Medina is recording a .200 batting average against right-handed hitters, while recording a .462 batting average against left-handed hitters. Coach Sutton explained, “Medina is weak against left-handed hitters, so we placed Park Seung-wook. Today’s game plan is to quickly destroy Medina and when the bullpen pitcher is put in, Ahn Chi-hong will start a sortie right away.”
