Lee Yong-gyu (38, Kiwoom) was fortunate enough to avoid a major injury.
Kiwoom coach Hong Won-gi said on the 11th, “I don’t know how long it will take Lee Yong-gyu to be able to hit, but he is in a state where he can play as a great defense or large runner. When he is needed in the second half of the game, he will play like that.”
Lee Yong-gyu felt pain in his right wrist during the 9th inning against LG in Jamsil on the 9th. At that time, the trainer came out to the ground for a 메이저놀이터 while to check the condition, but Lee Yong-gyu continued to digest the game. In the end, after hitting the base with a heavy hit, he kept his position until the end of the 9th inning. However, the pain persisted, and as a result of a checkup on the 10th, he was diagnosed with a wrist sprain.
On the morning of the 11th, he had another check-up at another hospital. He was diagnosed with a sprained right wrist that would take about two weeks to fully recover from. However, he was told that it was not a major injury and that, depending on the condition, the pain could recover within a week. Accordingly, Lee Yong-gyu decided to remain in his entry.
Lee Yong-gyu recorded a batting average of 0.250, 7 RBIs and 11 points in 28 games since the opening. He recently stagnated, but he survived by hitting 3 hits and 2 RBIs in 4 at-bats against LG on the 9th, but was injured. In Kiwoom, even if Lee Yong-kyu is excluded from the entry, there are not enough resources to replace him in actual hitting or defense.
Even ahead of the game against LG on the 11th, Lee Yong-gyu showed his will to participate, albeit as a substitute in the second half of the game, by normally digesting all defense training except batting training.
