 who is attempting to advance to the Major League Baseball (MLB), was mentioned as the most suitable center fielder for the San Francisco Giants.

The media explained that San Francisco is actively recruiting players to strengthen its power this season, and analyzed that it needs to strengthen Shohei Ohtani

who doubles as a two-batter, as well as starting pitchers and center fielders.

At the same time, “Cody Bellinger is the best center fielder among free agents this offseason, but Lee Jung-hoo may be a better fit for San Francisco. 

San Francisco was fascinated by Lee Jeong-hoo and scouted him three times,” he wrote.

Regarding Lee Jeong-hoo, “He is the son of Lee Jong-beom, a legendary baseball player who played for 20 seasons in Korea and Japan.

He played shortstop in high school, but changed his position to center fielder after signing with Nexen Heroes (now Kiwoom) in 2017.”

However, NBC Sports Bay Area said that Lee Jeong-hoo may have difficulty adjusting after entering the major league. The media said, “The level of the KBO league is between Double A and Triple A. 

The average fastball velocity in the KBO League is 88 mph (approximately 141.6 km), while in the Major League it is 93 mph (149.6 km), so there may be more strikeouts during the initial adaptation process. “The level of KBO League play is known to fall between Double A and Triple A in the minor leagues,” he added.
