“It’s a best-case scenario” San Diego Ando almost lost Kim Ha Sung to Machado

San Diego Padres infielder Kim Ha-seong has been sidelined due to the after-effects of an injury.

According to local media, including Major League Baseball’s official website, Kim did not start the game against the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium in New York City on Monday (27 June) due to the after-effects of his injury the day before.

Kim was hit in the left knee by a foul ball in his first at-bat of the second inning against the Washington Nationals on the 26th. Kim went down in excruciating pain and was unable to get up. He refused to allow trainers to touch the painful area. Kim was soon helped off the field and replaced.메이저놀이터

He was checked out by a doctor, and luckily for him, an X-ray revealed that it was just a bruise with no broken bones. “When I was first hit, I thought the worst,” Kim said in a post-match interview. But fortunately, the results were good, much better than I expected. I was told there was no damage to the bone,” he said.

The San Diego Union-Tribune reported on the 27th that, “Kim played wide in the outfield at Yankee Stadium. He is not in the starting lineup today but is expected to play tomorrow. He is wearing a compression bandage on the knee he injured yesterday.”

San Diego manager Bob Melvin said, “We expect him to be able to start tomorrow.” “He got hit really hard yesterday, but (the day off) is the best case scenario for San Diego,” said A.J. Casavalle of Major League Baseball’s website.

Since making his major league debut in 2021, Kim has had a healthy season so far without a trip to the disabled list. His biggest goal in the majors is to stay healthy and play as many games as possible. After suffering a minor injury, Kim is ready to take the field again.

San Diego, meanwhile, is without starting third baseman Manny Machado with a fractured back of his hand, and with Kim at third in the meantime, Lugned O’Dowd, who has played mostly second base and right field this season, started at third base on the 27th, with Jake Cronenweth at second and Fernando Tatis Jr. in right.
