Infielder Park Joon-young (25), who became Doosan Man as a free agent compensation player for Park Se-hyeok, was released.
On the 19th, Doosan Bears posted two photos of Park Joon-young wearing a Doosan jumper on the club’s official SNS, along with the words, “Park Joon-young, a new member of the Doosan Bears, visited the Jamsil home for the first time. We ask for a lot of support from the strongest 10th hitter.
Doosan designated infielder Park Jun-young as a compensation player for Park Se-hyuk, who obtained FA qualification on the 2nd and transferred to the NC Dinos. Park Se-hyuk, who signed a free agent contract with NC on November 24 for 4 years and 4.6 billion won, is grade A. After discussion, Doosan received 200% of Park Se-hyuk’s previous annual salary (300 million won) and one player other than 20 protected players.
Park Joon-young left Gyeonggi High School and received the NC 1st nomination in the 2016 rookie draft. At the time, he was a promising pitcher who threw a fastball in the mid-140 km range, and in the first year of his debut, he left a possibility with an average ERA of 6.95 with 1 win, 3 losses and 5 holds in 32 games. However, he underwent elbow surgery later in the season, and decided to become a batsman while serving in the military as a community service worker.
Park Joon-young stepped on the plate in earnest from the 2020 season. On defense, he played both pitcher and shortstop in high school, so he was in charge of shortstop without much difficulty. However, he did not stand out much, leaving a low performance with a batting average of 2.7, 109 hits, 12 home runs and 53 RBIs in 221 games in his career. This season, too, he was sluggish with a batting average of 2.16, 4 homers and 19 RBIs in 75 games. 메이저사이트
Park Joon-young underwent surgery for a dislocated shoulder on October 12 and is currently undergoing rehabilitation. At the time of the surgery, he received an 8-month rehabilitation, and accordingly, it is expected that he will be able to greet Doosan fans for the first time only in the second half of next season.
Nevertheless, the Doosan club, which nominated Park Joon-young, said, “We put more weight on future possibilities than on the present. He’s not immediately energized, but he’s a player I’ve been watching since high school. His potential is highly appreciated. Our team also needs a next player at third base someday,” he said, paying attention to his future.
Park Joon-young, who moved the team for the first time in his debut, said, “I want to think that Doosan picked me because they needed me. I’m in rehabilitation, but I picked it up, and I will prepare well to repay you at the stadium as much as you picked me up,” he pledged to become a reward player success story.
