‘Is there any bad luck like this…’ 17th year pro ironman, injured again in 1 week of return “Treatment for at least 4 weeks”

Hwang Jae-gyun (37), a veteran infielder of the KT Wiz, who has been in his 17th year as a pro, has been disengaged from the lineup again one week after returning from injury. Bad luck for both the player and the team.

A KT Wiz official said on the 6th,메이저사이트 “Hwang Jae-gyun felt pain in his left foot during training the previous day (5th) and went to the hospital. As a result of a detailed examination, he was diagnosed with a microfracture of the second toe of his left foot.” The official added, “It is a situation that requires conservative treatment for about 4 weeks.”

KT Wiz was scheduled to play the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League away match against the Hanwha Eagles at Daejeon Hanwha Life Insurance Eagles Park at 2:00 pm on the same day, but it was canceled due to rain. Hwang Jae-gyun was eliminated from the first team entry that day. Instead of Hwang Jae-gyun, infielder Ryu Hyeon-in was registered.

Hwang Jae-kyun is the main third baseman representing the KT Wiz. Ahead of the 2018 season, Hwang Jae-gyun, wearing a KT Wiz uniform, took over as the captain of the team in the 2021 season and contributed greatly to the first integrated victory since its founding. It was also Hwang Jae-gyun’s first win. He received good reviews for playing the role of a bridge between the coaching staff and the players.

In the end, the KT club signed a 4-year total of 6 billion won (down payment 2.5 billion won, annual salary 2.9 billion won, option 600 million won) with Hwang Jae-gyun, who obtained FA (free agent) qualification ahead of the 2022 season, and pressed him to the team.

Hwang Jae-gyun, who has been in his 17th year as a pro this year, played in 141 of 144 games last year with a batting average of 0.262 (136 hits in 519 bats), 10 home runs, 64 RBIs, 59 runs, 6 steals, 6 steals, a slugging percentage of 0.380, and an on-base percentage of 0.335.

In fact, Hwang Jae-gyun was no different from being an iron man. That would be the case, because from the 2008 season to the 2022 season, he played more than 100 games in each season, except for only two seasons (2010 season, 2017 season). However, he has played in 13 games this season and has a batting average of 0.205 (9 hits in 44 at-bats), 5 RBI, 5 runs, 3 walks, and an OPS of 0.550.

On the 14th of last month, Hwang Jae-gyun was hit in the instep of his left foot by his batted ball during a game against the Hanwha Eagles. Eventually, on the 15th, the next day, he was excluded from the first team entry. Fortunately, it didn’t appear to be a major injury at the time. KT coach Lee Kang-cheol, who is the command tower, also said, “I heard that there is no major problem with the bones. He is in a situation where he can put his feet on the ground, so I think he will get better.”

In fact, Hwang Jae-kyun was called up to the first team on the 29th of last month after recovering from an injury. As soon as he was registered in the first team entry at the time, he played against Samsung, and then started in the match against Samsung on April 30. Then, in the match against SSG on the 3rd, he shot a signal of rebound by performing a multi-hit performance with 2 hits and 1 point in 5 at-bats. However, as the injury was confirmed again a week after his return from injury, the time has come to focus on his treatment. He was initially diagnosed with 4 weeks, but the hiatus may be even longer in order to perfectly raise the sense of actual combat in the future.

It can’t be a bad thing at the KT team level. KT is in ninth place in the league with 8 wins, 2 draws and 16 losses this season. Above all, as injuries continued to appear before the start of the season, they were unable to utilize their entire strength even once. Prior to the opening, Pil Seung-jo’s key resource, Ju Kwon, was taken off the line due to an elbow (right forearm) injury. Kim Min-soo, who also plays the role of KT’s Pil Seung-jo, was unable to join the opening entry due to a shoulder (extreme tendon) injury.

Then, the ‘KT outfield nucleus’ assigned team suffered a fractured back of the hand during an exhibition game against SSG on March 26th. On the 1st, Park Byeong-ho was put on the injured list due to a hamstring injury. Initially, it was found that treatment was required for about 3 weeks, but fortunately, after being diagnosed with micro damage, it is expected that he will be able to return after about a week. Still, it is encouraging that So Joon So, who was diagnosed with a right forearm sprain in early April, has recovered from the injury. Joon Sohn returned from the SSG match on the 3rd. Still, it is KT Wiz who is holding on with his gums. Will the wizard corps be able to plan a reversal again in May?
