“He’s a player who doesn’t express himself…”

Kiwoom Heroes Lee Jung-hoo started as a center fielder and batsman 3 in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League Season 7 away match against the Lotte Giants held at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 22nd, and played an active role with 3 hits, 1 RBI, 1 run, and 1 walk in 3 at-bats, but could not finish the game.아톰카지노

The situation was like this. Lee Jung-hoo widened the gap by pulling out a timely hit against Lotte’s changed pitcher Kim Jin-wook at the third base safely in the top of the 7th inning, with a narrow lead of 4-3. And in the defense at the end of the 8th inning, Lotte’s lead hitter Kim Min-seok caught a hit. Kim Min-seok’s hit was a ball that landed in front of the center fielder, and Lee Jung-hoo only caught the rolling ball. But at this time, suddenly Lee Jung-hoo complained of his abnormal symptoms and sent a signal to the dugout.

Kiwoom immediately put in a trainer to check Lee Jung-hoo’s condition. And the trainer sent a sign to the dugout saying that Lee Jung-hoo could no longer compete. Lee Jung-hoo, who had been limping, finally returned to the bench with the help of a trainer. An official from Kiwoom said, “I suffered pain in my left ankle during the defense process, so I was replaced to protect the player.”

However, Lee Jung-hoo’s injury seems a little serious. This is because there was no case where Lee Jung-hoo voluntarily sent a replacement signal to Dugout even if he had discomfort. And Kim Hye-seong, who met Chwi Chae-jin after the game the previous day (22nd), said, “I have to go to the hospital, but from what I hear, it doesn’t seem like (the injury) is light, so my heart hurts.”

First of all, Lee Jung-hoo moved to Seoul early in the morning of the 23rd. On the 23rd, coach Hong Won-ki said before resigning against Lotte, “After yesterday’s game, I did not receive any separate reports (about Lee Jung-hoo’s condition). First of all, I sent him back to Seoul early to receive an accurate diagnosis.”

There was no special action that could lead to an injury, but what was the background that caused the pain? The command tower explained, “According to Lee Jeong-hoo himself, he felt something wrong with his ankle while starting to catch Kim Min-seok’s batted ball. I am concerned because he is a player who does not show such expressions or expressions. Tomorrow (24th) I think I will have to get an accurate diagnosis.”

Kiwoom called Lee Yong-kyu early as Lee Jung-hoo was out due to a sudden injury. Lee Yong-gyu, who was out of the line due to a left ankle injury, recorded 1 hit and 2 walks in 3 at-bats in the match against the Doosan Bears Futures team on the 21st and 22nd. The command tower said, “Originally, I was going to play in the 2nd team until today and call up next week, but it came sooner than I thought.”

Lee Yong-gyu was registered in the first team that day and was named in the starting lineup. On this day, Kiwoom Lee Yong-gyu (left fielder) – Kim Hye-seong (2nd baseman) – Ronnie Dodson (center fielder) – Lee Won-seok (designated hitter) – Song Sung-moon (3rd baseman) – Kim Gun-hee (1st baseman) – Joo Seong-won (right fielder) – Kim Joo-hyung (shortstop) – Lee Ji-young (catcher).

Dawson is expected to fill the gap left by Lee Jung-hoo for the time being. Coach Hong Won-ki said, “It’s too early to judge based on one game, but he has the ability to hit the center in attack. Contact was positive. In defense, going over the head was the most difficult ball, but seeing how he chases and catches it, I think he will do better than expected.”
