Samsung Lions captain Oh Jae-il (37) 꽁머니사이트 looked blankly at the sky for a long time just before being replaced by an injury against the Doosan Bears in Pohang on the 5th. From the moment he stepped on first base and grabbed his left thigh, he seemed to have felt that it was an unusual injury. I felt pain in my left hamstring, and I suspected muscle damage in the training part. It will take at least a month to run on the ground without being aware of the injury, although it will be known only after a hospital checkup on the 6th and an accurate diagnosis.
Running with a desperate mind seemed rather poisonous. As of the 6th, Samsung remains at the bottom with a 28-47 winning rate of 0.373. The atmosphere has been so serious recently that it has widened to six games with the ninth-ranked KIA Tigers (31 wins, 38 losses, 1 draw). Starting with the match against the LG Twins (1-2 loss) in Jamsil on the 13th of last month, when the last consecutive victory was cut off, the winning rate of only 3 wins and 16 losses was 0.158 in 19 games played so far. Oh Jae-il, who leads the team, had no choice but to feel heavy.
Maybe that’s why. Oh Jae-il hit a grounder to first base in the bottom of the eighth inning with no outs and runners on first base, trailing 2-7, and ran with all his might to first base. Although he was behind by five points, he ran as fast as he could, looking only at first base with the idea of preventing double plays. Then I got a sore thigh. Pohang Baseball Stadium was not in good ground condition to actively play base, although it used explosive power for a moment. During the game on the 4th, players kept slipping on the ground due to rain, but on this day, players were often seen stumbling while stepping on the ground even though it was clear all day. This means that the ground is not firmly established. It would be difficult to say that Oh Jae-il’s injury had no impact on the ground.
Oh Jae-il was on the ground for a long time with a complex look on his face. When the training coach checked his physical condition, he only looked at the sky with a stiff face. The action came out because he knew how big it was that he left due to injury at a time when the team was in crisis in many ways. Center hitter Koo Ja-wook left early last month due to a hamstring injury and barely returned in time for the Pohang series, and Oh Jae-il took over the injury baton.
Ahead of the game, Samsung had given up catcher Kim Tae-gun to the KIA Tigers to change the mood and carried out a one-on-one trade to receive infielder Ryu Ji-hyuk. Samsung manager Park Jin-man also admitted that the trade was one of the measures to reverse the atmosphere of the team, which fell to the bottom.
Coach Park’s head seems to have become complicated again as the captain has left the team at a time when he has to unite around the captain to find clues to the rebound. The team also took the situation seriously enough to bow its head in the dugout as soon as Oh Jae-il stopped holding his thigh. How can Samsung make a breakthrough while Oh Jae-il is expected to leave for the time being.
