KIA Tigers Kim Tae-gun was excluded from the selection.

KIA will play the 15th game of the season against the Doosan Bears at Kia Champions Field in Gwangju on the 18th.

On this day, KIA played the game with the following lineup: Wonjun Choi (center fielder), Doyoung Kim (3rd base), Seongbeom Na (right fielder), Hyeongwoo Choi (designated hitter), Sunbin Kim (2nd base), Socrates (left fielder), Woohyuk Byun (1st base), Junsu Han (catcher), and Gyuseong Kim (shortstop).

Kim Do-young, who had played as shortstop and leadoff for three consecutive games until the previous day, returned to batting second and third base. Kim Do-young’s return to third base adds stability to the infield defense, and as he went no-hit in 3 consecutive games as a leadoff player (0-hit, 1 walk in 12 at-bats), it is meaningful in creating a turning point for the batting sluggishness.

KIA coach Kim Jong-guk said, “Kim Do-young played shortstop in high school, but he only played third base in the pros. It may be a little different in terms of batting quality and fielding range.” He added, “We will leave the shortstop role to Kim Gyu-seong, who has a lot of experience in the pros, and give Kim Do-young third base.” “I will leave it to you,” he explained.스포츠토토

Han Jun-su replaced Kim Tae-gun as the starting catcher. The KIA team said, “Tae-gun Kim has a left ankle sprain, so he will not play in the game and is resting.”
