A seventh-round rookie reversal

A seventh-round rookie reversal. A surprise, super-fast call-up.

The NC Dinos added infielder Se-hoon Kim to the first-team roster on Friday after the Incheon SSG Landers game was rained out.

Kim is a 2005 high school rookie who joined the organization this year. A graduate of Gyeongbuk High School in Daegu, he was selected in the seventh round, 61st overall, by NC in last year’s rookie draft. NC used the rookie pick from the Lee Myung-ki trade with Hanwha to select Kim.

The Futures League officials were reportedly surprised by the rookie’s ability to generate hits so freely.

After the four-hit game,

Kim said, “I was surprised myself. I modified my batting form a bit with coach Cho Young-hoon, and it seems to be working well for me. It was my first four-hit game in baseball. Even my mom was like, ‘What’s wrong with you,’ because I never had that in high school,” he said, adding, ”I’m having a lot of fun playing baseball now that I’m getting good results. I feel like I’m being pampered as the youngest because my older brothers are also doing well, but I don’t want to hurt the team, so I’m keeping my nerves on edge.”

Kim, who had two hits against KT on April 4 and is 9-for-18 with a 5.5 RBI average in just four games in the Futures League, got an unexpected piece of good fortune.

The injury to first baseman Kim Han-byul, who was playing for the first team. Kim started the game against the Incheon SSG on April 4 as the No. 9 hitter and shortstop, but in the seventh inning, she was hit in the right finger area by a ball thrown by SSG pitcher Choi Min-joon. She was immediately substituted, and after a hospital examination, she was diagnosed with a bruised right middle finger and a lacerated nail. Luckily, he avoided fracturing his finger, but he will have to wait about two weeks to have the stitches removed.

The injury, however, led to an unexpectedly quick call-up for “rookie shortstop” Kim Se-hoon. The seventh-round pick is the first of NC’s rookies of the year to step onto the first team.
