fortunately out of misfortune I thought that the KT Wiz, fighting the evil spirits, would have to endure for three weeks without the center hitter Park Byeong-ho (37), but I was relieved that the condition was not worse than expected as a result of the additional close examination.

KT coach Lee Kang-cheol said ahead of the match against Incheon SSG Landers on the 2nd, “(Park) Byung-ho received a review this morning that he only needed to rest for one week instead of three weeks.” An official from the KT team said, “It was the first time that a designated hospital sent an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) film to a specialized hospital in Seoul, and it took about 3 weeks for rehabilitation and treatment. I need to try again,’ so I learned more about the extent of the injury through face-to-face medical treatment today (the 2nd).”

On the 29th of last month, Park Byung-ho was injured while running sprinting to first base in the middle of the 7th inning against the Suwon Samsung Lions. The next day, he underwent an MRI scan at the club’s designated hospital in Suwon, and he had to concentrate on recovery for about three weeks according to the initial findings. However, as a result of an additional close examination, he can return if he only takes 10 days off, which is the period of expulsion from the first team entry. Excluded from the first team entry on the 2nd, he plans to continue treatment while accompanying the team.

KT suffered 9 consecutive losses since the match against Suwon SSG on April 20th. The 9th consecutive loss is the first in 7 years since 2016. After becoming competitive in the first team, it was something he hadn’t experienced for a while, but there was no way to deal with a series of injuries.

In KT this season, Pil Seung-jo Ju Kwon injured his right forearm muscle and Kim Min-soo injured his right shoulder upper extremity muscle, so they could not make it to the opening entry. In addition, starting pitcher Joon Sohn also left due to a right forearm sprain. Fortunately, Joon Sohn is about to register for the 1st team entry on the 3rd, but the evil spirit of injury is not leaving in the other line. Hwang Jae-gyun, who injured his instep, returned on the 29th of last month, and Park Byung-ho left, so the complete group is still far away.

A major blow to the offensive power was inevitable. KT ranked 9th out of 10 clubs in both team batting average (0.216) and OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage 0.587) during the losing streak. Compared to the previous 13 games with a batting average of 0.297 (1st place) and an OPS of 0.776 (2nd place), the difference is remarkable. Park Byeong-ho recorded a batting average of 0.269, an OPS of 0.696, 2 home runs and 14 RBIs in 22 games this season.스포츠토토

Coach Lee plans to find a breakthrough by transfusing Lee Si-won and Kang Min-seong, who have received few opportunities in the first team or had no business records, while filling the center of the batting line without Park Byung-ho with veteran foreign hitters such as Anthony Alford, Jang Seong-woo, and Park Kyung-soo. Coach Lee said, “I was looking for an opportunity to use the players I had watched so far. The current situation will be the motivation,” he said. Young players also had to improve their skills. Shouldn’t the team change a bit with this opportunity?” he added.
