Concerns have become reality.

Oh Ji-hwan, a key player in the LG Twins’ two-hit game, will be out for more than two weeks due to an injury. Oh Ji-hwan felt discomfort in his side during batting practice prior to the home opener against the Samsung Lions in Jamsil on the 7th, and immediately went to the hospital for a detailed examination. Even though his side was not good the day before, he participated, 1 hit, 2 stolen bases, 1 RBI, 1 run, and helped Tingmoon to win 5-0. This time he went to the hospital, where microscopic damage to the oblique muscle of his right side was discovered. LG said, “You need to take a break for more than two weeks.”

First of all, the absence of Oh Ji-hwan, who is irreplaceable,메이저사이트 is a big blow to the ball, defense, and week. Oh Ji-hwan played in all 5 games this season and recorded a batting average of 30% (6 hits in 20 at-bats), with 5 RBIs and 4 stolen bases, the most in the team. As a shortstop, he even played a pivotal role in the team’s defense.

The problem is that there is no suitable player to replace Oh Ji-hwan. This is because professional shortstops such as Son Ho-young and Kim Joo-seong, who will replace Oh Ji-hwan, are all out with injuries.

Currently, he has to play for about two weeks without a professional shortstop.

In LG’s game on the 7th, Kim Min-seong came out as the shortstop. Kim Min-seong was a shortstop when he joined the Lotte Giants in 2007, but after moving to the Nexen Heroes, he played almost exclusively as a third baseman. This year he has been a utility player at third, second and first base, but not at shortstop.

Coach Yeom showed expectations, saying, “I saw a shortstop in high school and in the early days of the pro, and he is a player with a sense of defense, so even if the range is not wide, he will be able to do his part.”
