The injury of Eom Sang-baek, the 4th starter of the KT Wiz, was not a simple side pain. A hospital examination revealed microfractures in his ribs.
A KT Wiz official told OSEN on the 25th that “Sangbaek Eom was diagnosed with a microfracture of the 8th rib as a result of MRI and X-ray reading at a Seoul hospital today.”메이저사이트
KT excluded Eom Sang-baek, an axis of the starting rotation, from the first team entry ahead of the 9th game of the season against the KIA Tigers in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Suwon KT Wiz Park on the 24th.
The reason was an injury. KT manager Lee Kang-cheol, whom I met in Suwon at the time, said, “I originally had pain in my right side, but I endured it and threw it. Today (24th), the condition worsened, so I was excluded.” “There is no problem on the MRI. However, he expunged it because he was in so much pain that he couldn’t sleep. When the pain subsides, he can throw again,” he said, downplaying the injury.
However, as a result of further examination, an unexpected fracture was found in the rib area. Even at the time of expungement, it was expected to return after a 10-day break, but there was a reason why I felt so much pain that I couldn’t even sleep.
A KT official said, “It is a situation that requires rest, and we will monitor the condition and re-examine later. It is expected that it will take about 4 weeks to return.”
With the exclusion of Eom Sang-baek, there was a crack in KT’s strong starter baseball. A situation where an alternative selection is needed for the next month, including the Suwon Samsung Match on the 29th. First of all, KT filled the vacancy of Eom Sang-baek by calling up Jo Yi-hyeon, who can digest long innings, but it seems that at least 4 weeks’ opinion will need to be supplemented with additional selections.
Eom Sang-baek, KT’s 4th starter, recorded 7-6 and an average ERA of 3.63 in 20 games this season, and was in charge of one axis of KT’s powerful starting baseball. He was shaken with 4 runs in 5⅔ innings against Suwon KIA on the 22nd, which was his most recent appearance, but eventually suffered a rib injury and had to digest the rehabilitation schedule for a month.
