Joilo Almonte (34) is a foreign player who played for kt in the 2021 season.
However, the results were not good. He was ejected during the season.
At that time, Almonte’s performance was a batting average of 0.271 with 7 homers and 36 RBIs in 60 games. I can’t say he didn’t have very bad grades. However, kt drew his sword.
It was because of his insincere attitude.
Even on defense, he did not give his best and was often absent due to an injury. Forced to think about the team atmosphere, kt eventually made a final decision.
It was through the Mexican League that Almonte, who seemed to be forgotten, reappeared.
When he hit 27 home runs in the Mexican League and made a big success, Chunichi Dragons, his former team in the Japanese professional baseball league, reached out again.
That’s how Almonte wore the Chunichi uniform again.
Almonte’s grades aren’t good. It only proves that his choice of Chunichi wasn’t right.
He appeared in 21 games and only posted a batting average of 0.171, one home run and two RBIs.
He has an on-base percentage of only 0.171 and a slugging percentage of 0.268, which would be lacking even if he batted. OPS is only 0.439.
It is noteworthy that not a single walk was recorded. It can be seen that the pitchers facing him are playing head-to-head without hesitation. 안전놀이터
Such Almonte recently delivered a piece of news that made me feel bitter.
It was because of a play from the Hanshin Tigers match held at Koshien Stadium on the 2nd.
Almonte, who started this day, saved the team from a crisis with a diving catch from 2 out and 2 base in the 3rd inning, 3 points ahead. He was such a hosobi who did not spare himself that most sports magazines mentioned his play because of how wonderful his play was.
The reason why this piece of news was bitter was because of the play Almonte showed in Japan.
I emphasize again, but Almonte was a player whose insincere defense was a problem when he was playing in Korea. His diving catch with his body was an unexpected defense.
He made listeners bitter that what did not work in Korea worked in Japan.
An official from kt said, “It is a player who has already lost contact with us, and the foreign hitters who joined later are doing their best, so there is no regret. Also, Almonte thinks that it is the last time, but he thinks that he is doing his best. However, it remains regretful how it would have been if I had done my best while playing for our team. I try not to pay attention as much as possible,” he said.
