Ryu Ji-hyuk slipped during defense and was replaced without completing a single at-bat…”No plan for hospital checkup”
Samsung Lions infielder Ryu Ji-hyuk did not get a single at-bat in the game.
Ryu Ji-hyuk started the 12th game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League against the LG Twins at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu on June 6, batting fifth and playing first base.
In the top of the first inning, Ryu, who was playing first base defense, slipped and fell while trying to catch Oh Ji-hwan’s grounder with runners on second and third. Second baseman Kim Dong-jin, who was covering from behind, threw the ball to first base to end the inning, but Ryu felt discomfort as he fell. In the end, Kim Tae-hoon came in to pinch-hit for Ryu with runners on second and third in the bottom of the inning.메이저놀이터
It wasn’t a major injury. The substitution was made to protect the player. A Samsung team official said, “Ryu Ji-hyuk slipped while fielding and pulled a muscle. There are no plans for a hospital checkup,” said a Samsung team official, explaining Ryu’s physical condition.
