The Shell Helix Player is awarded to the pitcher and hitter with the highest Wins Above Replacement (WAR) for the month. As of the 26th, the top hitter is Lee Jung-hoo with a WAR of 1.81.

In 21 games this month, Lee batted .392 (79-for-31) with two home runs, 14 RBIs, and 16 runs scored. His OPS (on-base percentage) is 1.099, which ranks him second in the league in batting average and OPS and third in hits.

Lee is the KBO’s leading hitter, having won five batting titles and the Most Valuable Player (MVP) award last season (2022). He had a slow start to the season. He batted just .218 in 22 games in April. He was unable to adjust to his new batting stance before the start of the season.

After returning to his original stance, Lee rebounded. Since mid-May, he has been producing strong at-bats. On May 7 against the LG Twins at home (Gocheok SkyDome), he had the most at-bats in a single game in his career (six). He had three hits, including a home run, in his first three at-bats, and drew three walks in his next three. Opposing pitchers avoided him. Lee once again had a six-hit (four hits and two walks) game on the 11th against the KT Wiz in Suwon. With Lee’s resurgence, Kiwoom went 12-2 in 22 games in June, moving up from eighth to sixth place.

Choi Jung-jeong is second in the hitting department with a 1.71 WAR in June. In 21 games, he batted .372 (78-for-29) with 11 home runs, 23 RBI, 21 runs scored, and a 1.297 OPS. He leads the team in home runs, runs scored, RBIs, and OPS.

Choi was consistently good at the plate, with only three games without a hit. He has hit a home run in 15 games, three of which were game-winners. She fulfilled her role as the leadoff hitter and helped SSG to a first-place defense.

The Shell Helix Player of the Year for Pitching is a battle of foreign pitchers. Doosan Bears ace Raul Alcantara leads the way with a WAR of 1.82, followed by LG Twins Adam Plutko at 1.63. Alcantara is 3-0 with a 1.35 ERA in five starts, while Plutko is 3-0 with a 0.84 ERA.
