I’m paid the highest salary in the league, but I don’t deserve it. If he keeps playing like he is now….

SSG Landers foreign-born slugger Guillermo Heredia continues his hot streak. In 40 games through 15 days, Heredia is batting 3-for-9 with 60 doubles, seven home runs, 35 RBIs, and a 1.013 OPS in 153 at-bats. He also has a .575 on-base percentage and a whopping .438 slugging percentage.

He’s also at the top of every other hitting metric. Heredia leads the league with a batting average of nearly 40%, ahead of second-place Doosan’s Heo Kyung-min (0.382). He’s third in hits, third in slugging percentage, first in OPS, and sixth in on-base percentage.

He’s also strong in chances. 바카라사이트 He leads the league with a whopping 5% on-base percentage with runners in scoring position.

He may not have the long balls and home runs that you’d expect from a foreign hitter, but SSG didn’t sign him as a “home run hitter” from the start. SSG, a team of home runs, already has the best big bat duo in the league in Choi Jung and Han Yoo-seom. Heredia’s presence in the cleanup trio maximizes the explosiveness of the entire lineup.

Heredia’s biggest strength is his consistency.

After a slow start to the season, he’s been hitting four home runs consistently since the beginning of April. In April, Heredia’s monthly batting average is 4.8, and in May, he’s at 4.1 and 1.5. While it’s hard to imagine Heredia hitting 40% over the course of a full season, his biggest strength is that he’s consistently hitting in the low 30%s and hasn’t had any long slumps.

Heredia hasn’t had a spectacular major league career, but he has consistently shown flashes of promise.

He was one of the key players in the Atlanta Braves’ World Series victory in 2021. SSG had been following Heredia for a while, and after seeing him hit in action in 2022, even though his performance was down, they were convinced of his potential and decided to sign him.

He proved his worth last year.

Despite a late-season injury setback, he finished fifth in the league with a 3-for-2.3 batting average and eighth in RBIs with 153, putting him in contention for the batting title right up until the end.

SSG re-signed Eredia ahead of the season, signing him for $1.5 million (including $200,000 in incentives). He is the highest paid foreign player in the league, along with Casey Kelly (LG), William Cuevas (KT), and Raul Alcantara (Doosan). Among hitters, he is by far the highest.

However, Heredia has been able to fulfill his role as a center fielder even with Choi Jung and Han Yoo-seom out with injuries. 토토사이트 추천 Barring any lingering injuries, he could challenge for the batting title this season.
