American sports media ‘Sports Talk Atlanta’ highly praised Park Hyo-joon’s (infielder) defense and running ability. However, he showed skepticism about the possibility of entering the big leagues. 

‘Sports Talk Atlanta’ delivered the news of Park Hyo-joon’s contract with Atlanta on the 17th (hereinafter Korean time) and highly praised his defense and running ability. 

Park Hyo-joon, who moved to Boston on the 24th of last month, was put on standby to make room for closer pitcher Kenley Jansen on the 14th. Park Hyo-joon, who was excluded from the 40-man roster, can transfer within a week if a club wants to recruit him.

If no club wants Park Hyo-jun, he becomes a free agent or moves to the minor leagues. Atlanta recruited Park Hyo-joon to reinforce the infield.  토토

Park Hyo-joon debuted in the big leagues last year and recorded a batting average of 1.59, 25 hits, 3 homers, 14 RBIs, 16 points and 1 stolen base in 45 games. He appeared in 23 games this season, going 11-for-51 with a batting average of 2.1 6, 2 home runs, 6 RBI, 7 runs scored and 1 stolen base. 

His career minor league record was a .25 average with 593 hits, 44 home runs, 250 RBIs, 385 runs scored and 133 stolen bases in 653 games played. 

The media gave a favorable evaluation, saying, “His running ability is excellent enough to cover all infield positions except first baseman and record double-digit steals in the minor leagues,” but negatively evaluated his batting ability as “inconsistent.” 

He also pointed out, “The reason why Atlanta recruited Park Hyo-joon is to strengthen depth and it is just a low-cost move.”
