The KBO leagues plays 5 games 6 nights a week. They all take off Monday.
Won Tae Choi(Heroes
In 2019 Choi pitched well posting a 3.38 ERA and only allowed 5 HRs over 157 innings, while averaging 5.8 innings per game. Tonight he faces the worst hitting team on tonight’s slate in the Samsung Lions coming in hitting under .200 for the season. They also come in striking out at a 21% clip, which should help Choi out some in the strike out department. The game is at home tonight where the Heroes are 4-0.
Shi Hwan Jang(Eagles)
Jang started off the season throwing 6 innings and giving up 2 runs while striking out 6 hitters. Over his last 6 starts last year he pitched well only allowing 2 runs or less in 5 of the 6. In that time frame he averaged 5.7 Ks. Tonight he gets the Tigers who are on the bottom half offensively and striking out at a 20% clip(ranked 3rd). Cheap option that should go 6 with 1-2 runs and 6-7 Ks.
Also consider: Young Ha Lee (Bears)
The Dinos have show they can hit the long ball early in the season smashing 12 HRs so far through 6 games. They face off against William Cuevas who allowed 6 hits and 6 runs over 5 innings with one of those runs a HR. I went all in on the Dinos last night and plan to do the same tonight as they are in another good spot. Sung-Bum Na has the highest ISO on the team and has already hit 2 HRs. Suk Min Park came through big last night with a 2 HRS game (3 on the season). Jin Hyuk No has hit in 5 straight games (409 on the year with 2 HRs) and is a value play. These are the main 3 bats I have interest in. A few other options on the Dinos Eui Ji Yang came off the bench last night and got 2 at bats. Risky play since he is dealing with an injury but I have just been punting catcher.
Attacking David Buchanan tonight with the Heroes. Buchanan allowed 6 hits, 5 runs and only struck out 2 hitters in his KBO debut. Prior to the KBO he pitched in Japan and the MLB(mostly in the minors). Mediocre at best with a lifetime 5.01 MLB ERA, 4.36 Minors and 4.25 (Japan/Korea). Bottom line here is this is a good spot to attack him with a team that should get over looked tonight. Bats to target- ByungHo Park has massive power posting 2- 50+ HR years then went to the MLB and came back to KBO and hit 43 HRs. Jung Hoo Lee has hit in all but one game this year and just missed the cycle a few games back. Hitting .391 with 2 HRs on the year. Ha Seong Kim has started off slow, but has power and my favorite SS on the night. and this is a good spot for him to get going.
Should be a popular game again tonight prefer the Bears sidde. The Bears have been the hottest hitting team to start off the season coming in at over a .300 clip with 8 HRs. Bats to target-Jose Fernandez is hitting just shy of .600, Jae il Oh has power and is still reasonable priced, Jae Hwan Kim with back-to-back HR games.
Ramos is on a hot streak with 3 multi hit games and 3 HRs over the last 2. Big power bat going against a mediocre pitcher.
Kwang Min Song
Starting off the year hitting .375 with 2 HRs.
Roman has been in a slump to start out this season. Facing Lim who has been known to give up the long ball. First HR comes tonight.
Favorite Value bats
Sung yeol Lee- has shown power over the past 2 seasons with 34 and 21 HRs respectively. Love the matchup for his tonight vs Min Woo Lee who struggled in his first game this year and has been pretty bad over the past 2 years with a 5.43 and 7.17 ERA over the past 2 years. Also, Min Woo Lee is allowing over a .400 wOBA to LHHs.
Jin hyuk No- part of the Dino stack. Hitting the ball well right now.
Chang Pyung Kim
Cheap option in a solid matchup. Excellent speed with 5 stolen bases.
