Arm hit and glove thrown out, Kim Min-woo’s pain expressed in anger
Hanwha Eagles Kim Min-woo was hit on the elbow and replaced. It is said that the X-ray is fine, but it seems that we will have to wait for the results of the next checkup.
Hanwha drew 2-2 in an away game against SSG Landers in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 14th. Starter Kim Min-woo’s early steel plate was a variable. Kim Min-woo was hit by a ball in the 4th inning and had to go down the mound unexpectedly.
Kim Min-woo, who gave up 2 runs until the 3rd inning, came up in the 4th inning and set the leader, Choi Jeong, back with a catcher foul fly. However, the first pitch hit by Heredia, the next batter, bounced off Kim Min-woo’s right arm. Minwoo Kim collapsed on the mound as soon as he was hit by the ball, took off his glove and cap, and shouted into the air, not hiding his anger.
It is a weapon and property sold to the pitcher. In particular, Kim Min-woo is a player who has experienced Tommy John surgery. The moment he hit the ball with his elbow, he couldn’t help but feel pain physically as well as mentally. This is the first time that Kim Min-woo, known for his mild personality, has shown such anger on the mound.
As Kim Min-woo went down the mound unexpectedly early, Hanwha had no choice but to face difficulties in pitching management. Nevertheless, the bullpen did not collapse and led the game to overtime. Lee Tae-yang, who rushed to the mound, pitched 2 innings, and later Kim Seo-hyun and Kang Jae-min blocked 1 scoreless inning.안전놀이터
As the game went into overtime, finisher Park Sang-won also played 2 innings and scored no runs, and Jung Woo-ram also played 1 innings with no runs. The remaining pitchers were Kim Ki-jung, who threw a lot of pitches the day before, and Yoon Dae-kyung, who had a long fight with Han Seung-ju. The bench had no choice but to use the Yun Dae-gyeong card to cry and eat mustard.
Kim Min-woo, who came down the mound with a swollen arm, took an ambulance and went to Gachon University Gil Hospital. Thankfully, there was nothing special about the X-ray. On the 15th, Kim Min-woo will undergo another detailed examination.
First of all, there is no problem on the X-ray, but you need to keep an eye on it as closely as possible. Even if the result comes out that he is fine as long as he gets hit by his throwing arm, he seems to have to keep a keen eye on the situation.
