NC catcher’s ocular fever, 3-week diagnosis of partial adductor tear 1st team invite removed

토토사이트NC Dinos catcher Ahn Jung-yeol has been removed from the first team roster.

The Korean Baseball Organization (KBO) announced the first-team roster additions and deletions on Monday. No players were added and five players were deleted.

The most prominent name is Ahn Jung-yeol. He felt unwell while sprinting to first base during a home game against the LG Twins at Changwon NC Park on April 27, and was replaced by Kim Hyung-jun in the top of the fifth inning.

At the time, an NC team official explained, “Ahn Joong-yeol was replaced at the end of the fourth inning due to discomfort in his right adductor muscle and is undergoing icing treatment.” On the 28th, NC announced through the club’s official SNS (social networking service) that “Ahn Joong-yeol was diagnosed with a three-week diagnosis of partial adductor muscle damage as a result of a medical examination and moved to the rehabilitation group.”

With main catcher Park Se-hyuk, who is still in the second team, rehabbing from tendinitis in his left wrist, playing catch and doing weight training, Park Dae-on and Kim Hyung-jun are expected to handle the outfield for the time being.

SSG Landers infielder Choi Jun-woo has also been sent to the second team. Choi has been with the first team for more than two months after signing with the team on June 14, and has been a solid backup in the infield. This season, he’s batting .273 with 15 home runs and six RBIs in 55 at-bats in 35 games.

In his most recent game, however, Choi came in as a pinch-hitter against the Doosan Bears in Jamsil on June 26 and didn’t do much. With the bases loaded in the top of the ninth inning with his team leading 7-5, Choi was hit by a pitch to end the inning.

KT Wiz outfielder Kim Byung-jun, a “second-year pro,” was also sent down to the second team. After making the first team on June 9, only to be removed from the roster a day later, he impressed fans at the Futures All-Star Game on June 14, going 3-for-4 with a home run, one RBI, one run scored, and one walk. His three-hit performance was the only one among the Southern All-Stars and earned him the Most Valuable Player award.

Finally, after being added to the roster on the 19th, Kim realized his dream of making his first-team debut and appeared in three games until the 26th against the Busan Lotte Giants. However, he went 0-for-2 and had to save his first hit for another time.

Samsung Lions catcher Kim Jae-sung and pitcher Lee Sang-min were also promoted to the second team. Kim Jae-sung was designated for assignment for the first time since he was promoted to the first team on June 3. He has mostly seen the field as a substitute, but has struggled this season, going 16-for-80 with a .200 batting average and six RBIs in 43 games, and hasn’t lived up to expectations in his last 10 games, going 1-for-13 with a .077 batting average.

Lee Sang-min is 2-1 with an 8.83 ERA in 22 games and 17 1/3 innings pitched this season, and in his most recent outing against the Daegu Kiwoom Heroes on April 27, he faced three batters and gave up three runs, all earned, on hits. The decision was made to give him time to rebuild in the secondary organization.
