Choi Ji-man (32, San Diego Padres), the eldest Korean major league fielder, returned to the major league.
San Diego announced on the 16th (Korean time) that “Matt Carpenter has been placed on the injured list (IL) and Choi Ji-man has been reinstated from the IL.”아톰카지노
Ji-Man Choi was placed on the 10-day IL on August 15 with a sprain near his left rib. Choi Ji-man, who began his rehabilitation game in the minor league Triple A on the 6th, proved that his sense of actual play is not rusty with 2 hits in 3 at-bats, 1 walk, and 3 on base in his first game. However, during the game, he suffered bad news when he was hit on the instep by a batted ball and suffered a bruise.
Choi Ji-man, who returned to action on the 9th, recorded a batting average of 0.160 (4 hits in 25 at-bats), 1 RBI, 4 walks, and 7 strikeouts in 7 games at Triple A. San Diego brought up Choi Ji-man to the big leagues as an alternative to Carpenter, a left-handed hitter who can play designated hitter and first base.
Choi Ji-man, a prospective free agent, is having a difficult time this season. He missed most of the first half of the season due to an Achilles tendon injury, and even after moving to San Diego, he was hampered by injuries and was limited to playing in 30 games. At the Pittsburgh Pirates, when their batting was at its best, they were caught up in the platoon system.
Choi Ji-man is recording poor results this season with a batting average of 0.179 (15 hits in 84 at-bats), 6 home runs, 11 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.679. After wearing the San Diego uniform through a trade on August 2, he has yet to report his first hit in 7 games (0 hits in 11 at-bats). Attention is being paid to whether Choi Ji-man, who is going through a difficult time, will be able to achieve some kind of success in the 2023 season, which is just around the corner.
