AG big bad news broke out… Out of season diagnosis after ankle injury

National team representative outfielder Lee Jung-hoo is on the operating table. Considering the rehabilitation period, he was effectively sentenced to an out of season. It is a huge bad news for not only Kiwoom Heroes, who are competing for rankings, but also Ryu Joong-il, who is about to depart for the Hangzhou Asian Games.

Kiwoom Heroes announced on the 24th that as a result of a detailed examination at multiple medical institutions, Lee Jung-hoo was diagnosed with damage to the extensor belt of his left ankle. The extensor belt is a Y-shaped membrane that surrounds the ankle tendons.바카라

Previously, Lee Jung-hoo started the match against the Lotte Giants on the 22nd, but felt pain in his left ankle while defending in the bottom of the 8th inning and requested a replacement himself. Kiwoom expunged him from the first team the next day.

The date of the suturing operation has not yet been determined. However, the club explains that it will take about three months to rehabilitate even if he hastily undergoes surgery. This means that it may be difficult to digest the rest of the schedule this season.

Kiwoom lost the hottest hitter in the current lineup overnight. He was the one who boasted the highest sense of hitting until right before his injury. In 13 games held this month, he had 20 hits and had a monthly batting average of 0.435.

The national team also had an emergency. Ever since his debut, Lee Jung-hoo has responded to the call to the national team. Starting with the 2017 Asian Professional Baseball Championship (APBC) when he was a rookie, he attended 5 international competitions over 7 years.

In particular, Lee Jung-hoo’s presence was absolute in Ryu Joong-il-ho, who was trying to take revenge for the recent sluggishness with the gold medal in Hangzhou. Expectations were raised that he would hold the center of the other line based on his overwhelming career and international competition experience among his peers.

Moreover, this national team had only three professional outfield resources including him. It is said that Kim Ji-chan and Kang Baek-ho, who were selected as infielders, can cover the outfield by being used as a big defense in the second half of the game, but only if Lee Jung-hoo holds out as a built-in center fielder.

To make matters worse, Choi Ji-hoon and Choi Won-joon, who are in charge of the corner outfield, do not feel good at hitting. Before the match, the batting averages of the two in July were only 0.212 and 0.250, respectively.

There is no law that the deserter will end after this. On the mound, the forearm of NC Dinos Koo Chang-mo is a factor of anxiety. During the game on the 2nd of last month, he complained of pain in his left arm and was beaten.

The Korea Baseball Organization (KBO), which oversees the composition of the national team, is in a position to keep an eye on the situation. The intention is that the possibility that rehabilitation ends earlier than the diagnosis cannot be ruled out. A KBO official explained, “We will take the player with the best (form) at that time,” and explained, “It is a matter that does not need to be rushed.”
