Shin Min-jae leaping forward as an all-around second baseman “Ji-hwan hyung’s Bentleg sliding, I unconsciously come out… I get hurt when I train”

He is also doing well with the second hitter mission. He helped runners on base steal earlier and he hit two timely hits on chances. After joining as a pro, he was unable to become a first-team backup agent, but he leaps forward by creating a new drama every month this season. LG’s main second baseman Shin Min-jae (27) did it again.안전놀이터

On the 19th, Shin Min-jae played as second baseman in the Munhak SSG match and played an active role with 2 hits and 4 RBIs in 5 at-bats. At the beginning of the third inning, he made a bunt-hatched swing motion that helped the two runners double steal on first and second base safely. 2nd base runner Park Hae-min and 1st base runner Hong Chang-ki succeeded in stealing the base and hit a 2 RBI double that became the winning run on 2nd and 3rd base. Attacking his opponent pitcher Kim Gwang-hyun’s slider, he proved that his current batting average (0.323) was no coincidence.

Afterwards, Shin Min-jae, who continued to show solid defense, scored a wedge in the second big inning, the top of the 8th inning. He hit left-hander Lim Jun-seop’s slider at 1st and 1st and 2nd base and scored 2 RBIs on time. He also played the role of a solver as the second hitter and scored the most RBIs in a single game in his personal career. LG won a complete victory over SSG 11-2 and booked a winning series of 3 matches over the weekend.

The following is the Q&A of Shin Min-jae and reporters.

  • Not long after the 3 RBI game, I played the 4 RBI game. He also set a new personal RBI record.

I was trying to play comfortably. It seems that a good batting ball came out. It was thanks to his older brothers getting on base in front of him.

-What about batting order 2?

I think it’s the same as the 8th or 9th hitter. However, I think that it should be more clearly applied in a bunt situation. A lot of prostitutes are surviving, but compared to him, Bunt is still lacking.

-Looking back at the 3rd double steal situation?

When a good ball came, bunt it. But runners came first. I thought I would live to see Haemin run, so I just faked a swing and bunt.

  • It is also impressive that the defense has improved. What is your mindset when defending?

The mind is the same as the first. As I continue, I see a bound. Then you decide whether to go forward or backward. As long as it’s not physically tough, I think the defense will continue to be fine.

  • There was also an image of Oh Ji-hwan handling batted balls with Bentleg sliding, which he is good at.

I saw Jihwan hyung do it before. When a fast runner came out, I felt like I couldn’t do it normally. So I thought about what to do to deal with the half timing first, but it came out unconsciously without me knowing. No separate training. You’ll get hurt if you do.

  • Please look back on the situation where you scored 2 RBIs by targeting Kwang-Hyun Kim’s slider.

I became 2nd and 3rd base by stealing. I thought I could save a chance if I looked at the defensive position and passed the infield. I focused on passing the infield and swung, and the results came out well.

-Are there any physical problems?

There are no physical problems. It’s been a bit cooler lately. The weather is much better than two or three weeks ago.

  • Contact is really good. It seems that he is good at hitting to make use of his strengths.

In the past, I just hit the ball that I thought I couldn’t hit and tried to run. These days, I’m trying to swing. There are times when I unknowingly try to guess and run, but I don’t think that’s the case. Coach and (Kim) Hyun-soo-hyung talk a lot about this part. It’s right to hit and run clearly, so I pay attention to my swing.

  • It was also impressive to see director Yeom Kyung-yeop holding and guiding you during the camp.

When I went to camp, I always played defense or base run. In this camp, there was a blow to the early work and extra work. I thought you cared about me, so I prepared more. I think my batting is going well thanks to the help of the manager and coaches.

Shin Min-jae, LG’s second hitter, celebrates his 1 RBI triple at the bottom of the 8th inning of the 2023 professional baseball LG Twins and Kiwoom Heroes game held at Jamsil Stadium on the 12th. 2023.08.12.Reporter Kang Young-jo

  • How much do you think of the stolen king title?

Greed comes naturally. But now the team is in a good mood and is winning. I’m thinking about letting go if I’m not sure later. But for now, I want to play King Doru.
