He converted to a pitcher in 2021 and solidified his position as a starter last year, but
was booed by fans due to a decline in his skills following the controversy over extramarital affairs and assault.

Lotte Giants’ right-handed starting pitcher Na Gyun-an (26) has become a player who is booed by even the home fans.

Na Gyun-an started in the home game against KIA Tigers in the ‘2024 Shinhan Sol Bank KBO League’ held at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 25th and was criticized for allowing 7 hits (1 home run), 6 walks, and 8 runs in 1⅔ innings.

He was on the verge of losing, but thanks to the batting line, he avoided defeat. On this day, Lotte tied the game 15-15 after an extra-inning battle.

However, when Na Gyun-an came down from the mound in the top of the second inning, some home fans booed loudly. He was also embroiled in rumors that he had been drinking with an acquaintance the day before his appearance.

Na Gyun-an started in 14 games (60⅔ innings) this year, recording 2 wins, 7 losses, and an ERA of 9.05.

His batting average against is high at 0.364, and his WHIP is very high at 2.29. It is more than twice as high as Daniel Castano (1.12), who is in first place in WHIP. It 슬롯사이트

has not even been a year since he started as a starting pitcher, so his position within the team has become narrow. Na Gyun-an, who debuted in 2018, was evaluated as a catcher who could succeed Kang Min-ho (Samsung Lions). However, as his potential did not come to fruition, he converted to a pitcher in 2021. He pitched as a starting pitcher and as a bullpen pitcher until 2022. Na Gyun-an, who became a starting pitcher in 2023, won 4 games, 0 losses, and an ERA of 1.34 in 5 games in April, winning his first monthly MVP. His best weapons were his good control and forkball. He was selected for the Hangzhou Asian Games baseball team that year and contributed to Korea’s gold medal. He also received military exemption benefits, so his baseball career seemed to be in full swing. However, in February, Na Gyun-an’s wife, A, revealed on her Instagram live broadcast that “her husband is having an affair,” and claimed that the police and an ambulance were dispatched due to Na Gyun-an’s violence. Na Gyun-an, through his legal representative, completely denied A’s claims, saying that they were false. However, amidst this controversy, his performance plummeted. In particular, he has been in a slump with 1 win, 3 losses, and an ERA of 13.05 in the last 8 games. With very little chance of recovery, he is in danger of being demoted to the minor league. Lotte fans have already turned their backs and are talking about his release. 파칭코 게임
