‘It would be terrible if Ryu Ji-hyuk fell’, but as a result of the examination, the shin was simply bruised ‘KIA sigh of relief’

KIA Tigers infielder Ryu Ji-hyeok was replaced due to the bad luck of getting his knee hit by a foul ball. Fortunately, the examination results revealed that it was a simple bruise.

Ryu Ji-hyeok started as a third baseman in the away game against the Samsung Lions in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu on the 16th.

However, he was unable to complete the game. He was replaced at the plate in the second inning.

The situation was this. The ball, which hit Samsung starter Won Tae-in’s 4-ball slider, hit the bottom of the bat and struck Ryu Ji-hyeok below his right knee. Ryu Ji-hyeok immediately collapsed and complained of pain, and then was picked up by the training coach and left the ground. Ryu Ji-hyeok was replaced with Hwang Dae-in.

Ryu Ji-hyeok complained of his pain after being hit in the leg by a foul ball in the first inning. He fell on the inside of his right knee. Afterwards, he endured pain and returned to the plate, but in the second at-bat, he was hit by a foul ball in almost the same knee area and was eventually replaced.

The KIA currently has a significant gap as center hitter Na Seong-beom has a calf muscle injury and Kim Do-young, a 2nd-year professional infield prospect, has left due to a fractured pinky toe.

Before the game on this day, KIA coach Kim Jong-guk expected, “Ko Jong-wook, Choi Hyeong-woo and Ryu Ji-hyuk have the best hitting feeling. I hope that the two players will solve it when Ryu Ji-hyuk goes on base.”

Ryu Ji-hyeok was struggling with a batting average of 0.330 before the match. Ryu Ji-hyeok, who has a good hitting feeling in the KIA lineup, added regret.

Fortunately, examination results revealed that there were no serious injuries.

A KIA official explained, “As a result of the X-ray scan, there is no abnormality in the bone. It is a shin bruise.” 토토사이트
