Bad news for the SSG Landers, who have lost three straight games.
Core infielder Kim Sung-hyun (36) and outfielder Ha Jae-hoon (32) were removed from the first team roster due to injuries on the 12th.
“Kim Sung-hyun experienced pain during batting practice on the 10th and underwent a medical examination on the 12th, and the medical staff concluded that his intercostal muscle (the muscle between the ribs) was slightly damaged,” an SSG official said. He is expected to take about two weeks to return.
Ha’s injury is more serious. He was sidelined with a fractured left thumb. 토토사이트
“Ha was injured while stealing in the 6th inning against the NC Dinos on the 11th,” said an SSG representative, “He needs to be re-examined in two weeks. We will know how long it will take for him to return after the examination.”
The two players are indispensable resources for SSG. Kim Sung-hyun batted .245 with eight RBIs in 43 games this season, while Ha Jae-hoon showed good form with a .342 batting average in 14 games.
SSG will take a significant hit without their two mainstays in the lineup.
SSG has had a frustrating offense of late, losing three straight games against NC, totaling just six runs in three games.
The gap between SSG and the second-place LG Twins has narrowed to 1.5 games.
SSG will begin a three-game home stand against KT WIZ on the 13th.
