“Yesterday’s lineup looked like a baseball team….”
The lineup is finally complete, but again, a starter is out with an injury.먹튀검증
KT Wiz’s Choi Sung-ho is out with a fractured big toe. Before the last game of the first half, against the Gocheok Kiwoom Heroes on the 13th, KT removed him from the first team and called up high school rookie outfielder Jung Jun-young.
Lee has struggled with injuries this season. After struggling in the early part of the season, he underwent rehabilitation for a nagging hip problem. He returned on June 27, but was unable to hit well. After his return, he went 15 consecutive at-bats without a hit. Recently, he has only appeared as a pinch-hitter or catcher.
On June 11, he replaced Kang Baek-ho against Kiwoom and went 1-for-2 for his first hit since returning to the lineup. He went 3-for-3 with a home run, but an unexpected injury came in his last at-bat.
In the top of the eighth inning, a fastball hit him in the right big toe. He was in a lot of pain and was unable to continue his at-bat and was replaced by a pinch-hitter. A medical examination revealed a cracked big toe.
“I was going to have surgery, but when I went to the hospital today, they said I don’t need surgery. She’ll have to rest for about three weeks,” Lee said.
KT, which was unable to form a complete batting lineup due to relay injuries to its main players throughout the season, has recently returned Lee Ho-yeon and Kang Baek-ho, and is finally able to form a complete batting lineup with injury-free players.
“When I saw the lineup yesterday (Dec. 12), it looked like a real baseball team,” Lee said, lamenting Choi’s injury. Lee hit a career-high 3-for-8 last year, his first triple-double, but he has struggled this season with a combination of slumps and injuries.
In his place, Choi Bae-dae started in the No. 9 middle infield.
