Samsung Lions catcher and key hitter Kang Min-ho will take a day off after being diagnosed with knee inflammation.
“Kang Min-ho was removed from the starting lineup today,” Samsung manager Park Jin-man said in a briefing before the game against the LG Twins in Jamsil on the 15th. The cause: knee pain. Kang Min-ho had complained of pain in his knee during the previous day’s game. On the 15th, he underwent a detailed examination at the hospital, including an MRI, which revealed a slight inflammation in his right knee.
Coach Park Jin-man said, “I think he can rest for a day. They said it needs to be managed. I took a picture and it showed inflammation, so I took it out because I think he needs to rest a bit. If he rests today, he will probably be able to play tomorrow.” Kang Min-ho wore the mask the day before as the fourth outfielder and starting catcher for the LG Electronics. He was forced to take one game off due to knee pain.토토사이트
With Kang Min-ho out of the lineup, Samsung will use a “cleanup trio” of Jose Pirela, Dong-yup Kim, and Tae-gun. Kim Dong-yeop will be batting fourth for the first time this season.
