Yang Eui-ji, catcher of the Doosan Bears, found abnormal muscles in his side as a result of a hospital examination. Fortunately, it is not a major injury, but the coaching staff will discuss Yang Eui-ji’s 1st team entry cancellation on the 8th.
Doosan lost 1-3 against KT WIZ in Jamsil on August 6. Doosan, who recorded 47 wins, 1 draw and 44 losses in the season, fell back to 5th place in the league.
There was no name of Yang Eui-ji in the Doosan starting lineup for the game that day. Doosan has Su-Bin Jung (Center fielder) – Jae-Ho Kim (Shortstop) – Jose Rojas (Right fielder) – Jae-Hwan Kim (Left fielder) – In-Tae Kim (DH) – Seok-Hwan Yang (1st baseman) – Seung-Ho Kang (2nd baseman) – Seung-Hyun Jang (Catcher) – Gyeong-Min Heo (3) The starting batting order leading to baseman) was preceded.
Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop met with reporters before the game on the 6th and said, “Yang Eui-ji was left out of the starting lineup due to flank pain. Along with the aftermath of tonsillitis, he seems to have felt uncomfortable even during the swing process at the plate the previous day. I wonder if it would be difficult to play as a pinch hitter today. Tomorrow (the 7th), I plan to go to the hospital for a checkup.”
Yang Eui-ji played in 87 games this season and is active in the team-centered batting line with a batting average of 0.323 / 94 hits / 9 home runs / 44 RBIs. Wearing the mask of his main catcher and leading the team to the mound stably, Yang’s void felt more painful.
Doosan, who played against KT on the 6th without Yang’s will, eventually lost 1-3 in the silence of the team’s batting line. Kim Jae-hwan, who returned as the fourth hitter, also showed lethargic performance, unable to fill Yang Eui-ji’s void.
Yang Eui-ji, who felt discomfort in her side all weekend, went to the hospital on the 7th. As a result, muscle abnormalities were actually found related to the tightness of the flanks felt by Yang Eui-ji.
A Doosan official said on the 7th, “Yang Eui-ji had a hospital checkup today, and an abnormality was actually found in the side muscle area that complained of tightness. He was not seriously injured, so there is no cancellation of the first team entry today. However, before the game on the 8th, we plan to discuss with the coaches about canceling Yang Eui-ji’s entry.”먹튀검증
When it comes to flank muscle injuries, there is a pretty high chance of aggravation or recurrence. Yang Eui-ji, who occupies an absolute weight within the team. It can be a fatal problem if you go out to the game with a side problem and get a bigger injury. It may be a better decision to take a one-tempo break and return to the match in the second half in full condition.
If Yang Eui-ji is obliterated, Jang Seung-hyeon and Park Yoo-yeon will have to fill the gap as the main catchers. Jang Seung-hyun played the role of Yang Eui-ji’s backup catcher this season and played in 52 games, recording a batting average of 0.208 / 20 hits / 3 homers / 8 RBIs. Compared to Yang Eui-ji, the weight of the bat is bound to be completely different.
Park Yoo-yeon, who was recently called up to the first team, is a resource that is highly regarded for hitting rather than defense. In the case of Park Yoo-yeon, he has to show a little more stability in basic catcher defense skills such as catching and throwing. Jang Seung-hyun and Park Yoo-yeon are in an atmosphere where they feel regretful for Doosan’s home.
Still, Yang Eui-ji’s health care must come first. Yang Eui-ji played more than 500 catcher defensive innings (522.2 innings) this season despite being a veteran catcher. It is the time to manage Yang Eui-ji from a long-term perspective, not only for the final match in the second half, but also for participating in postseason games.
