] San Francisco Giants general manager visits Kocheok Dome. To see Lee Jung-hoo.토토사이트
It was the afternoon of the 7th at the Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul. Lee Jung-hoo, who has returned from injury, was taking batting practice. Lee was named to the first team roster on July 3 against Doosan in Jamsil.
Lee injured his ankle on July 22 when his left foot slammed into the waterlogged ground while playing outfield defense against Sasik Lotte. After dedicating himself to treatment and rehabilitation, Lee returned to the first team sooner than expected.
Although he is not yet ready to play, the team’s atmosphere has been revitalized just by having him on the field with his teammates. Today, Lee took batting practice, running and fielding drills.

San Francisco Giants general manager Pete Putilla, who visited the Gocheok Dome today, was in the stands with representatives from Boras Agents to watch Lee work out. The Giants knew that Lee was not yet eligible to play, so they came to the stadium early to watch him train.
San Francisco has been interested in Lee since he announced his intention to move to the United States after this season. In February, a San Francisco scout visited Kiwoom and the World Baseball Classic team at their spring training camp in Arizona to observe and document his every move. The Giants also sent a senior club official to watch Lee during the season.
Putilla, who began his front office career with the Houston Astros in 2011 and rose to the position of assistant general manager, was hired by San Francisco last year. He is said to have been highly regarded for his work in player development in Houston.
In a recent podcast on NBC Sports, San Francisco President of Baseball Operations Farhan Zaidi said, “We are continuing to scout Yoshinobu Yamamoto of Nippon Professional Baseball,” so it’s significant that the highest level of the organization traveled to Kocheok Dome to watch Lee work out.
