The Samsung Lions, who suffered from injuries at the beginning of the season, are eagerly waiting for June. This is because it seems that the long-awaited ‘complete’ will be possible in June.
From the point before the opening, Samsung suffered one after another.
Starting center fielder Kim Hyun-joon underwent surgery for a fractured haematopoietic bone in his right hand in March during an exhibition game. It was expected that it would take about 3 months before his return.
Prospective catcher Kim Jae-seong also left the line at the end of March during an exhibition game due to damage to his right oblique muscle. Expectations that he would make a strong home with veteran catchers Kang Min-ho and Kim Tae-gun were mixed.
Injuries continued after the start of the season. On the 15th of last month, about 15 days after the start of the season, geopo Kim Dong-yeop was left out of the first team entry due to damage to the left quadriceps muscle.
Before the injury, he was boasting a good sense of hitting with a batting average of 0.333 (11 hits in 33 at-bats) and 3 homers and 9 RBIs in 11 games, so Kim Dong-yeop’s injury was all the more regretful from Samsung’s point of view.
Fortunately, all the injured are preparing to return smoothly. Recovery is also quick.
Kim Hyun-joon has a comeback in front of his eyes. After recovering from his injury and completing rehabilitation, Kim Hyun-joon has been playing a real match since the 17th in the Futures (second team) league game. It is expected to return this weekend at the earliest.
In his first real match this year, Kim Hyun-joon showed a good feeling of hitting. He started as the first hitter and center fielder in the Futures League match against SSG Landers on the 17th, and played an active role with 1 hit, 2 walks and 2 points in 1 at bat.
Samsung coach Park Jin-man said, “Tomorrow, some first-team coaches will go to Gyeongsan to watch the Futures League match. It is to check the condition of several injured players, including Kim Hyun-jun.” If not, I expect to be able to join the first team this weekend.”
Kim Jae-seong is also steadily taking steps for his comeback. Kim Jae-seong, who joins the Remnant Army this week, plans to join the Future Steam next week and go into action if his physical condition is not abnormal.
Kim Dong-yeop also recovers quickly.
Coach Park explained, “In the case of Kim Jae-seong, the recovery speed is about 2 to 3 weeks faster than expected. Kim Dong-yeop judged that it would be difficult to return to the first half, but his condition improved more than expected.”
Director Park expects that they can become a complete team in the middle of next month.
Samsung had a difficult time at the beginning of the season, whose power plan was distorted due to a series of injuries, but did not fall far behind in the rankings. We are currently fighting for the middle ranks.
If they endure well until this month, it is worth betting on a game next month when the injured return. Unlike other clubs suffering from injuries to foreign players, the fact that David Buchanan, Albert Suarez, and Jose Pirella are consistently playing without major injuries is a positive factor for dreaming of a leap forward in June.메이저놀이터
Coach Park said, “I planned and trained for the power during the spring camp, but there were a lot of injured players before the season started, so I haven’t made a full team yet.” “If we become a whole, we will be able to run the game more easily. We are thinking positively,” he emphasized.
In addition, “It is regrettable that there are injuries to domestic players, but foreign players are steadily running without injury,” said coach Jeon Han.
