Kiwoom Heroes infielder Song Seong-moon (27) suffered a fractured finger after hitting a chair in anger after an error.
Kiwoom excluded Song Seong-moon from the first team entry ahead of the 2023 Shinhan Bank Sol KBO League LG Twins game held at Gocheok Sky Dome on the 4th.
An official from Kiwoom explained, “After making a mistake, Song Seong-moon hit a chair while blaming himself and was injured. As a result of a close examination, it was found that the metacarpal bone of the 5th finger on the right was fractured.”
Song Seong-moon caught Chae Eun-seong’s ground ball in the first base situation in the top of the 8th inning with Kiwoom leading 4-3 against the Gocheok Hanwha Eagles on the 2nd, and then threw a bad throw to first base. After he committed the mistake, he suffered absurd injuries in the wind that he couldn’t contain his anger.
Kiwoom also removed Jeon Byeong-woo, who felt back pain along with Song Seong-moon, from the first team entry. Instead, infielders Shin Jun-woo and Kim Woong-bin were registered for the first team entry.
KT Wiz’s native ace Sohn Joon Sohn also missed the first-team entry due to an injury.
A KT official said, “So Hyeong-joon was diagnosed with a right forearm sprain. He will be resting for about two weeks.” So Joon Sohn’s vacancy is expected to be filled by exclusivity.
Joon Sohn, who went to the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC), made his first appearance of the season against LG in Suwon on the 2nd. At the time, he was battered with 10 hits and 9 runs in 2⅓ innings.
Joon Sohn is the mainstay of KT’s starters,메이저사이트 who recorded an outstanding record of 13 wins and 6 losses with an ERA of 3.05 last year.
Already, KT’s bullpen winning team Joo Kwon and Kim Min-soo were out of the team due to elbow and shoulder injuries, respectively, and outfielder Bae Jeong-dae also suffered a fracture in the back of his left hand and was unable to join the opening entry. In addition, with the bad news of Joon Sohn’s injury, KT faced a crisis from the beginning of the season.
The KIA Tigers called up infielder Choi Jeong-yong to the first team instead of infielder Kim Do-young, who suffered a fracture of the left metatarsal bone (pinky toe) while running base.
