300 multi-infielder avoided major injuries… KIA also swept his chest
- on May 17, 2023
There is no business in front of an injury. The main players have already suffered line injuries, and even the best player in the team almost left.
The KIA Tigers were unable to build 100% of their strength due to a series of injuries. Na Seong-beom, the axis of the batting line, suffered an injury to his left calf and could not play a single game this season. Second-year infielder Kim Do-young also left the team due to a fracture in his left pinky toe. Kim Do-young recorded a batting average of 0.500 with 4 hits in 8 at-bats and 1 RBI in 2 games after the opening, leaving more regret as he boasted a feeling of high hitting.
It was a big blow as two of the main players out of the nine hitters in the starting lineup were missing. Coach Kim Jong-guk also expressed regret, saying, “The power has not been perfected. As a result, the performance is not constant.”
So, I tried to manage the condition of the players. This is because additional injuries had to be prevented. Coach Kim said, “I have been preparing for the season with the players I have now. I have to adjust my condition well. I have to manage well so that there are no injuries.”
But sometimes injuries are unavoidable. This is the case with Ryu Ji-hyeok. On the 16th, during an away game against the Samsung Lions held at Daegu Samsung Lions Park, Ryu Ji-hyeok collapsed after being hit by a ball he hit. At the end of the 2nd inning, with 2nd out, 1st and 3rd base, he attacked Won Tae-in’s 135km slider, and his hit hit his shin.
Ryu Ji-hyeok, who collapsed on the ground, could not stand up easily. In the outfield, he complained of pain long enough to wait for an ambulance. The coaching staff judged that he could not play in the game, and eventually proceeded with a replacement. Fortunately, no major injuries were avoided. A KIA official said, “As a result of the hospital examination, there is no abnormality in the bones. It is a bruise on the shin.”
Ryu Ji-hyeok was performing at the peak of his career this year. He had a batting average of 0.330 (33 hits in 100 at-bats) and an on-base percentage of 0.404 and an OPS (slugging percentage + on-base percentage) of 0.764 in 30 games. He has established himself as the main axis of KIA. He was useful in many ways because he could handle all infield positions.카지노사이트
He is a KIA that has been plagued by repeated bad news. If Ryu Ji-hyeok was also missing, the construction of the complete group would be further delayed. Ryu Ji-hyeok avoided a major injury and swept his chest.
