I dreamed of the promised June. However, it is likely to be the June of betrayal.

Injuries that never end. The Samsung Lions are crying again.

On the day they managed to become whole, they disbanded again.메이저놀이터

Ja-wook Koo collapsed while holding his right thigh while defending against Hanhwa in Daejeon on the 3rd. He hoped it would be a minor injury, but he was diagnosed with a thunderstorm at 6 weeks of treatment. The Samsung team announced on the 5th, “As a result of the diagnosis, Ja-wook Koo suffered damage to his right hamstring (muscles behind the thigh), and it was diagnosed that it would take about 6 weeks to rehabilitate.” It became difficult to return until the first half of July 13th.

Koo Ja-wook, who started as a right fielder against Hanwha in Daejeon on the 3rd, moved forward to catch a ball to the right foul line of Hanwha Moon Hyun-bin at the end of the 8th inning, but fell down while holding his right thigh right before second baseman Kim Ji-chan caught it. Ja-wook Koo, who complained of excruciating pain, got up for a while, but was unable to walk and was eventually carried out on a stretcher. On the 4th, the next day, Samsung canceled Koo Ja-wook from the first team entry.

Coincidentally, the 3rd day when Koo Ja-wook was injured was the day when infielder Kim Ji-chan and catcher Kim Jae-seong returned. Samsung, which had a difficult time with a rope injury throughout the first half, finally seemed to be complete after the return of the two players.

However, he encountered another bad news, the long-term departure of key hitter Koo Ja-wook, who had a ransom of 12 billion won like a thunderbolt.

It’s not just Koo Ja-wook. On the same day, infielder Kim Dong-jin, who fell due to a hamstring injury, was also diagnosed with 4-6 weeks of rehabilitation. It is also not easy to come back in the first half.

Kim Dong-jin was also replaced by An Joo-hyung during the defense at the end of the 3rd inning due to right hamstring pain while sprinting after hitting a grounder on third base in the second inning against Hanwha on the 3rd. A new player who filled the void with his excellent batting skills while Kim Ji-chan was out with his hamstring. It is regrettable that he is a player whose batting ability has been recognized enough to be placed in the center lineup.

As the batting line is weakened again, now we have to bet on the game with the baseball we keep.

The hope is to join the CC duo of pitchers Choi Chae-heung and Choi Ji-kwang, who will be discharged from Sangmu on the 12th. Choi Chae-heung is expected to be put into the 5th starter who is unable to resolve his concerns. Choi Ji-kwang is a pitcher who will give strength to the bullpen, which is a weak spot.

Choi Chae-heung started in 4 futures league games this season and continued a somewhat uneasy trend with an average ERA of 6.27 with 1 win and 1 loss. In the recent appearance against KT on the 3rd, he gave up 6 hits and 4 runs in 2⅔ innings and was knocked out early.

Choi Ji-kwang is showing a good trend in the bullpen with 4 hits, 6 walks, 5 strikeouts and no runs in 8⅔ innings in 11 games.
