Call-up on the 11th failed… The foreign command tower’s cold expression, a short reply in 10 seconds, “Soon (soon)…”
It’s a pity to use it, and it’s a foreign batter who has no alternative to throw it away.
The concerns of the Hanwha bench over the future of O’Grady, who has fallen into a ‘Gyereuk’, are sensed.
On the 10th,메이저놀이터 Hanwha’s bench ahead of the Daejeon Samsung game. The first question from the reporters was related to the timing of O’Grady’s call-up.
When asked, “Do you want to come tomorrow?”, Hanwha coach Carlos Subero shouted “Soon” instead of “Yes” with an expressionless face without a second’s thought. “Not tomorrow, but then sometime” is the last answer. It was over in about 10 seconds.
It’s worth worrying about. This is because the results of the Futures League are not very good. As of the 10th, he had 6 walks and 1 RBI with a batting average of 10.7 and 9.0 in 8 games in the Futures League. There is not a single expected home run in the 1st and 2nd teams.
At least, from the game against LG on the 27th of last month to the game against NC on the 29th, he tortured his hopes by recording at least one hit in three consecutive games. However, in the match against Sangmu on the 10th, he only had 3 hits and 1 walk, including strikeouts. His batting average, which briefly rose to 20%, fell back to 10%.
O’Grady has been staying in the Futures League since the 23rd of last month with a low batting average of 1.207 in 17 games for the first team. He’s rarely been able to send strong signals that he’s getting better.

There is also a lot of concern in the field.
To put it in the first team, one of the existing players must be removed from the entry. There is also the problem of including it in the lineup if you put it in the first team.
If you don’t know if it changes drastically, it’s hard to have high expectations if you go to the first team game in a state where there are no major changes. It cannot be ruled out that it will have an adverse effect on the recently revived other line.
When will the “sooner or later” that coach Subero spoke of be?
It is also a problem that foreign hitters continue to stay in the Futures League. As of now, after watching the Futures League match against Sangmu in Seosan on the 11th, there is a strong possibility that he will be called up for the 3rd consecutive Incheon match against SSG starting on the 12th. Will he be able to succeed in a surprise rebound by playing an active role that can relieve coach Subero’s hard expression?
O’Grady’s first team line, which could be his last chance in the KBO league. It is expected to be an important variable in the upward trend of Hanwha, which has hit bottom.
