San Francisco Giants manager Bob Melvin positively evaluated Lee Jung-hoo’s performance so far.

Melvin said in an interview ahead of the home game against the San Diego Padres at Oracle Park in San Francisco, California on the 6th (Korea time), “The adaptation process so far is amazing.”

Lee Jung-hoo has played in seven games so far this season, recording seven hits, one home run, four RBIs, three walks and four strikeouts in 28 times at bat.

The most impressive part is that he has consistently produced strong hits. Of the 26 hits he has made, 15 or 57.7 percent, were strong hits with a batting speed of 95 miles or higher.
“He has been impressive since the spring camp. He has been taking the batter’s box without any ideas other than video analysis against pitchers with no prior experience, but he has been doing well,” Melvin said in high praise of Lee’s adaptability.

After seven consecutive away games between San Diego and Los Angeles, Lee Jung-hoo will play his first home game since his Major League debut.

“I haven’t felt like home yet (San Francisco) since I’ve been in Arizona for a long time,” Lee said. “I want to feel what home feels like. I think it will be fun.”

“I think Lee Jung-hoo is also looking forward to the opening match at home. Fans have seen Lee play in away matches, and now they can see for themselves how exciting he is,” Melvin said, expressing expectations for his first home game.

Ahead of San Francisco’s first home game, Melvin said, “I haven’t forgotten my duties in my hands, but the opening game is a special day not only for me but also for the fans and the players. It will be a very exciting day,” while keeping expectations on the opening game.

“It’s going to be a really exciting opening game. I want to show my best in the opening game. I hope we do that today, but at the same time we have to know that it’s one of 162 games,” he said of his stance on playing in the opening game.

Melvin also reported on the injured at the meeting. 퀸알바
Alex Cobb, who is undergoing rehabilitation after left hip surgery, feels a slight abnormality in his elbow and takes a break from pitching training. Melvin told the situation, saying, “Things like this can happen after a long period of rehabilitation.”

Sean Gellie will start his rehab run. “It will help the player base. He is a player I expected to help me digest my innings in the early days of the season. I hope he will come back,” Melvin said, welcoming progress in his rehab.
