The Futures stage is narrow for Han Dong-hee. A big 130-meter two-run for bang! 6-4 upset win for Ibaji

Han Dong-hee (Lotte), who is playing in the Futures League as part of a batting rehabilitation program, hit a grand slam to lead off the game.

After batting .456 (14-for-140) with 14 home runs, 65 RBIs and 43 runs scored last year, Han has struggled this season, batting .254 (7-for-55) with four home runs, 28 RBIs and 23 runs scored in 77 games. He was designated for assignment on July 7 to readjust his hitting.

Manager Larry Sutton said before the game against Gochuk on the 8th, “Dong-hee Han has struggled this year in terms of hitting. She went through a cycle in the middle of the season where she looked like she was going to get better, but it wasn’t consistent, so I think she needs to go down to the second team and work a little bit more on her directional hitting from shortstop to right field rather than just pulling,” Sutton said.

“I also want him to separate his offensive and defensive mentality when playing defense, so that even if he’s not doing well in the offense, he’s still focused when playing defense,” he added.

“She’s a hitter who, when she’s feeling good, has good strike zone control and consistently hits the ball hard regardless of the outcome,” said Sutton, who emphasized, “I’d like to see her find her groove again. I hope she comes back with a little more improvement in her solid strike zone control.”
