Hanwha Eagles’ Oh Sun-jin has returned to the first team roster after 41 days.
Hanwha, led by head coach Choi Won-ho, will play an away game against SSG Landers in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on April 28. Ahead of the game, Hanwha removed outfielder Jang Ji-seung from the first team roster and added infielder Oh Sun-jin to the roster.
Oh, who was hit in the jaw by a pitch against Kiwoom in Daejeon on May 1, was placed on the disabled list on May 2 and removed from the first team roster. The injury came at a time when he was hitting well, batting .326 in the month of May.
After undergoing stitches to repair the torn jaw, Oh recovered and was ready to return to action in the Futures League. A sore hamstring stopped the clock on his return and he was called up today after playing three games in the Futures League from the 25th.
Ahead of the game on the 28th, Choi Won-ho said, “I continued to play in the Futures League and received reports that there were no problems with my hitting or defense. He played three games until yesterday, so I didn’t put him in the starting lineup today, but if I see a left-handed pitcher in the future, I can put him in the starting lineup,” Choi said.
“We can also use him as a pinch-hitter. In August, it’s getting hot, so even if (Noh) goes out to the pool, we have to change his defense a little bit. He can play shortstop, or he can play second base. We’re looking at it in different ways.”카지노사이트
Hanwha’s starting lineup was Lee Jin-young (right fielder), Jung Won (second baseman), Noh Si-hwan (third baseman), Chae Eun-sung (first baseman), Choi Jae-hoon (catcher), Kim Tae-yeon (designated hitter), Williams (left fielder), Moon Hyun-bin (center fielder), and Lee Do-yoon (shortstop).
Felix Peña will start on the mound, facing SSG Roenis Elias. “Eun-won is hitting well, so I put him in the No. 2 spot, and Hyun-bin seemed to be struggling a little bit, so I moved him down a little bit,” Choi explained.
