LG Twins players, who returned home on the 6th after the U.S. spring camp, held their first training in Korea at Jamsil Baseball Stadium on the morning of the 8th.
The players focused on improving their condition as it was their first training. Foreign pitchers Kelly and Plutko prepared for the exhibition game by pitching the bullpen.
The batters improved their condition by playing base. Austin Dean, who was unable to play in the practice game due to pain in his left side at the end of the Arizona spring camp, also appeared. 스포츠토토탑
Austin Dean, who was on the field a little later than the other players, began training with a trainer as a stretch. Austin Dean stretched for 10 minutes, lying in front of the third-base dugout.
On one side of the ground, catchers practiced throwing after receiving the ball. The throw was directed into a large net. However, the ball fell out of the hand of a catcher who was throwing and headed to the net of the third base stands.
The ball, which came down the net of the stands, fell next to Austin Dean. Fortunately, he didn’t fall to Austin Dean, but his teammates looked surprised.
However, Austin Dean, the person in charge, looked at the ball once and then stretched again, showing a cool appearance.
Austin Dean signed a contract with LG for a total of $700,000 ($100,000 in down payment, $400,000 in annual salary, and $200,000 in incentives) after the end of last season.
A 1993 U.S. National, Osty Dean was drafted by the Miami Marlins in the 2012 rookie draft with a right-handedaro 183 cm and 97 kg, and made his major league debut in 2018 with a batting average of 0.228, 11 home runs and 42 RBI OPS of 0.676 in 126 games.
Austin Dean said, “It’s an honor to be with LG in the 2023 season. I am grateful to LG for the opportunity and very excited to be with the coaches, players, and the best fans in the KBO League. “I will do my best to help LG win the championship in the 2023 season,” he said.
Austin Dean, meanwhile, did not find any abnormalities on a thorough examination. Manager Yeom Kyung-yeop plans to let Austin Dean play in the exhibition game.
