NC loses another midseason returnee, first base hopeful

The NC Dinos suffer another injury setback. Oh Young-soo and Park Joo-chan have returned home.

NC infielder Oh Young-soo packed his bags and returned home on the 19th local time.

He felt discomfort in his left hamstring during a training session on the 13th of this month, and as he continued to experience hamstring stiffness, it was decided that it was difficult to proceed with normal training. He will undergo a medical examination upon his return to Korea.

This season is very important for Oh. He has been a regular member of the NC’s first team for the past two seasons. Despite his low batting average, he has a lot of hitting qualities, 안전놀이터 including one-hitting and clutch ability. He has also been used as a first baseman and center fielder to test his potential.

This season, NC brought in Matt Davidson as a foreign-born hitter, and he was expected to be the backup first baseman.

If he can show a little more improvement at the plate, he and Davidson could give the NC infield depth even more depth. However, halfway through spring training, a hamstring strain put a damper on his opening day preparations. Once he’s cleared, he’ll start working on his skills and feel for the game.

This is the third player to drop out of CAMP 2, the NC USA camp. On February 2, Jeon Jae-min returned home after suffering a torn adductor muscle shortly after the camp started. On February 1, the first day of official training, Jae-min felt pain in his left side during a drill.

The next day, February 2, he flew back to South Korea for a medical examination and was diagnosed with a partial tear of his left adductor pollicis muscle. Jeon is expected to spend three to four months in rehabilitation, after which he will be able to fully recover his side muscles and get back to technical training and preparation. Fortunately, he is expected to be able to train normally next month, but he will need more time to prepare before entering the field as he was unable to complete spring training.

On the 9th, infielder Park Joo-chan returned home due to injury.

Park, who joined the NC as a developmental player in 2019 and was released and reinstated afterward, had a breakout year last year after serving in the military. In 83 games in the Futures League, he batted .295 (99-for-33) with three home runs and 34 RBIs. He also made his first-team debut and first-team hit.

After the season, he joined the national team for the Asian Baseball Confederation Championship and had a strong showing. He was named to the roster for the U.S. camp, raising expectations for this season, but an unexpected injury put the brakes on.

On June 6, he injured his left knee while practicing base-covering defense at second base and turning his body after stepping on the base. Thinking it was just a minor pain, he flew home, 카지노사이트 추천 and upon returning to the hospital, he was diagnosed with a torn cartilage in his left knee. Surgery was decided. Park will undergo surgery in South Korea on May 22, and the rehabilitation period alone will take five to six months. He is effectively out for the first half of the season.
