Another injured demon… Choi Ji-man goes to IL with left rib sprain

The injured demon seldom thinks of falling. Infielder Choi Ji-man (32, San Diego Padres) is taking another break. San Diego announced on the 15th, “Choi Ji-man was placed on the 10-day injured list (IL) due to a sprain near his left rib.” Applied retroactively to the 13th. He appears to have been injured while swinging. San Diego coach Bob Melvin said, “Choi Ji-man tried to run through the pain, but his condition got worse. He hopes it’s not a long-term injury.”

It’s already the second IL line. After finishing last season, Choi changed his uniform from the Tampa Bay Rays to the Pittsburgh Pirates through a trade. In November of last year, he underwent surgery to remove bone fragments in his elbow and worked hard on building his body, but after the opening ceremony, he was away for nearly three months due to a sprained left Achilles tendon. On the 2nd, before the trade deadline, he moved back to San Diego. He garnered even greater interest as he ate Kim Ha-seong and one pot rice. Before he could fully display his true value in his new team, his injury got in the way.

The flow keeps breaking. Amidst his big and small injuries, Choi Ji-man is unable to show his skills. He has a batting average of 0.179 (15 hits in 84 at-bats), 6 home runs and 11 RBIs in 30 games this season. His OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) is only 0.679. He seemed to be drawing an upward curve, batting average of 0.268 and 4 home runs in 14 games for the month of July. As the environment changed, the pace fell. After joining San Diego, he went 11 times with no hits and 5 walks in 7 games. His regret was greater because it was time to speed up toward fall baseball.안전놀이터

It’s an important time. Choi Ji-man will be eligible as a free agent (FA) after this season. Basically, he has a good vision and is a resource that can hit a single shot at any time. He also takes the lead in raising the atmosphere of the team with his unique overflowing excitement. He has a lot of things that will catch the attention of various clubs. What matters is your health. If he keeps leaving like he is now, he may not be treated as much as he would like. It seems necessary to quickly return to the major leagues (ML) and show yourself.
