Mookie Betts, Dodgers Shortstop… Kim Ha-seong’s Defensive Battle in the Seoul Series




The Los Angeles Dodgers of the Major League Baseball (MLB) replaced their starting shortstop with Mookie Betts 11 days ahead of the official opening of the 2024 MLB season.

Betts started as the number one hitter and shortstop in the MLB exhibition game against the Cincinnati Reds, where a ‘no game due to rain’ was declared before the bottom of the fifth inning, starting at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Arizona, USA on the 9th (Korean time). 카지노사이트

Originally, the Dodgers planned to form the 2024 keystone combination of second baseman Betts and shortstop Gavin Lux.

However, as Lux revealed a throwing problem, coach Dave Roberts made a decision.

In an interview with local media such as MLB.com on the 9th, Manager Roberts said, “Using Betts as a shortstop is a way to reduce our team’s runs lost as much as possible,” and added, “Using Lux, who feels psychological burden, as a second baseman is the most appropriate decision for the team.”

“For the time being, it is okay to view Betts as a ‘built-in shortstop.’”

In his MLB career, Betts played 8,121⅓ innings as a right fielder and only 98 innings as a shortstop.

He played second base for 713 innings.

Mookie Betts accepted Coach Roberts’ decision, saying, “Playing as the Dodgers’ shortstop is a huge burden, but it’s also fun.
