Hanwha Eagles outfielder Lee Myung-gi underwent ankle surgery and will focus on rehabilitation for 4-5 months.
Before the home game against SSG Landers in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Daejeon Hanwha Life Insurance Eagles Park on the 8th, Hanwha canceled Lee Myung-ki and Joo Hyun-sang from the first team entry and registered Kim Ki-joong and Jang Un-ho.
The reason for Lee Myung-gi’s entry cancellation is an ankle injury.스포츠토토
Lee Myung-gi, who started as the designated hitter number 7 in the game on the 7th, went on base with a left-handed hit in the bottom of the 5th inning, and succeeded in stealing second base when Park Sang-eon was at bat.
However, in the process, he sprained his right ankle and complained of his pain. Lee Myung-ki, who was transported to the hospital on a stretcher, was diagnosed with fractures in the distal end of the fibula on the right side, and was put on the operating table on the 8th.
The Hanwha club said, “It is expected that it will take 4-5 months for Lee Myung-gi to return to the ground.”
Lee Myung-gi, who exercised his free agent (FA) rights after the end of last year’s season, left the NC Dinos through a sign-and-trade and wore a Hanwha uniform. His performance this season is 0.200 batting average in 3 games, 1 stolen base, 2 RBI and 1 run.
Doosan Bears outfielder Kim In-tae was also sidelined due to a right shoulder injury.
Kim In-tae attempted a sacrifice bunt from second base without an out in the top of the 5th inning against the KIA Tigers in Gwangju on the 7th. When second base runner Yang Seok-hwan was caught on a rundown between second and third bases, Kim In-tae ran to second base, but collided with KIA third baseman Ryu Ji-hyeok and injured his shoulder.
The Doosan club said, “As a result of Kim In-tae’s MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) examination at a hospital in Seoul on the 8th, his right shoulder dislocation was confirmed. It is expected that it will take about 4 weeks to recover.”
Doosan excluded Kim In-tae from the first team entry and posted Song Seung-hwan.
Meanwhile, Oh Ji-hwan (LG Twins) and Kim Seong-wook (NC) were also excluded from the first team entry that day due to injuries to the right oblique muscle and left hamstring, respectively.
