SSG, who is fighting for 3rd place in the final stages, suffers a sudden hamstring injury… 1st group expunged “Needs protection for a week”
SSG Landers will play the remaining games without leading hitter Choi Jeong in the midst of a fierce battle for third place.
Coach Won-hyung Kim delivered the latest news ahead of the final match of the season with the Kiwoom Heroes of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 13th.
Choi Jeong suffered an injury during the Gwangju KIA Tigers away game on the 10th. Choi Jeong-eun, who was at bat with one out and no runners in the top of the fourth inning, chose to walk. Choi Jeong-eun advanced to second base thanks to Guillermo Heredia’s heavy hit.
With one out and runners on 1st and 2nd base, Hanyu Seom hit a hit to right-center field against Panoni. Choi Jeong, who was on second base, went around third base and passed home. In the process, Choi Jeong-eun suffered a left hamstring injury.
Coach Kim said, “It is not a serious injury, but protection is needed for about a week.” The injured area is the left hamstring. A team official further explained, “It is minor damage.”
Choi Jeong-eun is SSG’s leading hitter. He has been the KBO League home run king three times and is in second place with 31 home runs this year, trailing first place Noh Si-hwan (Hanwha Eagles) by two.
He has been the solution to SSG this season with a batting average of .209, 7 runs, 29 home runs, and 87 RBIs in 128 games. Such a central hitter cannot complete the remainder of the season. We will not be able to see Choi Jeong’s at bat in the 4 games until today’s match against Kiwoom.
It is a painful offensive loss for SSG, which is fighting for third place. First of all, the defense entrusted the hot corner to Kim Seong-hyun and called up infielder Kang Jin-seong.메이저사이트

I packed it.
The starting pitcher is left-hander Oh Won-seok. Oh Won-seok became the winning pitcher against NC Dinos on the 5th by allowing 3 runs in 6 innings. This season, he has 8 wins, 10 losses, and an ERA of 5.39. Against Kiwoom, he pitched in 5 games and recorded 1 win, 1 loss, and an average ERA of 3.81.
