1:1 trade! Lotte received left-hander Shim Jae-min “resources to strengthen bullpen depth in the second half”

The Lotte Giants received Shim Jae-min (28) and Lee Ho-yeon (27).

On the 19th, Lotte announced that it had “a 1:1 trade with KT Wiz for pitcher Shim Jae-min and giving infielder Lee Ho-yeon to KT.”

Shim Jae-min, a left-hander from Gaeseong High School in Busan, wore a KT uniform in 2014 through a priority nomination for a new team.

Since his debut in 2015, he has appeared in 293 games in his career, and has played more than 40 innings each season until last year. Last season, he went 4-1 with a 3.74 earned run average with 43.1 innings in 44 games. In this season, he conceded 5 runs in 2 innings in 4 games.

Seong Min-kyu, general manager of Lotte, said, “Sim Jae-min’s current physical condition is not good, but we judged him as a resource that can strengthen the bullpen depth in the second half.” He also said, “Lee Ho-yeon is a good hitter, so it’s regrettable, but Kim Min-soo and Park Seung-wook are playing a backup role, and with Na Seung-yeop’s return next year, it’s hard to give him a chance to play.”체스카지노

Na-Hyun Na, general manager of kt, said, “Lee Ho-yeon, who has experience in the first team, is an infield resource recognized for her batting ability by ranking high in key batting indicators such as batting average and on-base percentage in the Futures League this season.” Lee Ho-yeon recorded a batting average of 0.431, 3 home runs and 16 RBIs in 17 Futures League games this year.
