SSG is currently fighting fiercely with the NC Dinos and Doosan Bears for the third place. SSG occupies the third place, but it is 0.5 games behind NC in the fourth place and 1 game behind Doosan in the fifth place, so it is impossible to miss the tension for a moment. 스포츠토토핫 Ahead of the big moment, there is a big crisis for SSG. Choi Jeong, the main hitter, was canceled.
Choi Jung has a batting average of 0.297 140 hits in 471 times at bat and an OPS on-base plus slugging of 0.936 29 home runs, 87 RBIs this season. In particular, he tied for second in home runs and second in slugging percentage, leading SSG’s offense as a center hitter.
However, Choi Jeong felt uncomfortable with his hamstring while rushing home during an away game against the KIA Tigers in Gwangju on the 10th. In the end, he was excluded from the first team in a surprise move on the day. Head coach Kim Won-hyung said, It’s not that severe, adding, We still need protection for about a week, explaining the reason for the exclusion of the entry.
When will he return. Head coach Kim Won-hyung said, It is still difficult to say exactly whether he will play in the postseason. Still, I think it’s possible,” he said.
SSG officials additionally stated that Choi Jeong’s degree of injury was diagnosed as micro-injury to the left hamstring. He explained, I excluded it because I thought it was right to rest for the postseason.
Meanwhile, as Choi Jung becomes virtually impossible to play in the remaining regular season, the fierce home run king competition this season is expected to end with the victory of Hanwha Eagles Noh Si-hwan. Currently recording 31 home runs, Noh is ahead of second-place Choi Jeong by two. If the regular season ends as it is, Noh Si-hwan will win his first individual title.
