The LG Twins faced bad news: starting shortstop Oh Ji-hwan left for three weeks due to injury and foreign hitter Austin Dean went to the bench for Achilles tendon pain. However, we plan to quickly find an alternative.
LG coach Yeom Kyung-yeop said, ahead of the 2023 professional baseball KBO league match against the Samsung Lions at Jamsil Stadium on the 8th, “Oh Ji-hwan will have to watch for about three weeks. He is a player who plays a big role in the offense and defense, so there will be a hit,” he said, expressing regret about the absence of main shortstop Oh Ji-hwan due to injury.먹튀검증
Previously, on the 7th, the day before, Oh Ji-hwan received the result of a microscopic damage to the right side oblique muscle as a result of a detailed examination. He is in need of a break of 2 weeks or more. In the end, coach Yeom Kyung-yeop’s diagnosis is that a hiatus of about three weeks is inevitable until the period when he can raise his senses for actual fighting after rehabilitation and start playing.
Coincidentally, existing infield resources including Oh Ji-hwan, Son Ho-young, Lee Jae-won, and Kim Joo-seong, are injured or have some abnormalities in their current physical condition. In the end, in the game on the 7th, Kim Min-seong played as a shortstop after 2039 days. Kim Min-seong will start as a shortstop in the game on the 8th.
Regarding Kim Min-sung’s defense, coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop said, “Kim Min-sung’s defense is more stable than anyone else’s. After praising that the catch and the judgment on the defensive situation are stable,” he explained, “As Son Ho-young was missing, I trained Kim Min-seong as a shortstop in advance for Oh Ji-hwan to rest.”
In the long term, Kim Joo-seong, who is down to the Futures due to a minor injury, is expected to get a chance to return to the first team soon. Coach Yeom said, “With Oh Ji-hwan’s departure, other players will have a chance. In particular, Kim Joo-seong, who will soon rise to the first team, will be able to grow significantly.”
2016 LG 2nd round 2nd round 14th place Kim Joo-seong joined the pro, but there are not many games in the regular season yet with 7 games. However, he was expected to become a large infielder from the time he joined, and as he was included in the opening entry as a backup infielder this year, the plan is to give Kim Joo-seong experience as a first-team shortstop.
Fortunately, foreign hitter Austin Dean, who was replaced after complaining of heel Achilles tendon pain during the game on the 7th, was fortunately slightly injured. Director Yeom said, “It is uncomfortable to run with full power. He explained, “Whether or not to start the match on the 9th will be decided based on the condition.”
As injured players occurred, the starting lineup for the LG Twins on the 8th was Hong Chang-ki (left fielder) – Moon Seong-joo (right fielder) – Kim Hyeon-soo (DH) – Moon Bo-gyeong (3 baseman) – Kim Min-seong (shortstop) – Seo Geon-chang (2nd baseman) – Song Chan-eui (1st baseman). Base) – Kim Ki-yeon (catcher) – Park Hae-min (center fielder). The starting pitcher is Kim Yun-shik.
