Bad news for the Doosan Bears.
Their offensive and defensive core, Yang Yang-ji, has been replaced due to a collision while playing first base.
Yang started the fourth game of the season against Samsung at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on April 24 as the No. 3 catcher. 메이저놀이터
In the bottom of the first inning, he led off with a walk and advanced to second on a single by Yang Seok-hwan. In the fifth, he raced home on Rojas’ single to right. However, he was tagged out on the throw from the right fielder. In the process of sliding on the bunt, his leg got caught in catcher Kim Tae-kun’s leg.
In the process, Yang grabbed his right shin and complained of pain. A trainer came out to check on him, and he fortunately stood up on his own and returned to the bench with a slight limp.
Yang put on his protective gear and sat on the field with a mask in the second inning. It didn’t seem like a major injury.
However, after giving up a hit to Kang Kang-ul in the first inning, he was replaced by Jang Seung-hyun when Oh Jae-il came to bat. There was still too much pain to continue playing. “Yang was replaced by Jang Seung-hyun while fielding in the top of the second inning after suffering a right shin contusion during a home collision in the bottom of the first inning,” a Doosan representative explained.
Yang had been hitting at a peak in his last 10 games, going 14-for-35 (.400) with three home runs and nine RBIs. The day before, on the 23rd, he had a three-hit game against Samsung Electronics. “I’ve been hitting a lot lately,” he said. In his first at-bat, Samsung’s batteries were on high alert and he struck out. We’re worried that a collision injury could halt his upward trend.
