Hwang Seong-bin (26) is by far the most active player in the Lotte Giants team and makes the opponent’s nerves stand on edge.토토사이트
However, Hwang Seong-bin is currently staying in the 2nd division, not the 1st division. In the process of running base last month, he ruptured the anterior tibial ligament (near the peach bone) in his left ankle and left the line. Lotte’s engine for speedy baseball disappeared due to consecutive injuries in a situation where he had suffered a finger injury earlier.
It was Lotte who was coping well with Hwang Seong-bin’s absence. However, in the outfield, besides Hwang Seong-bin, injured people are appearing one after another. As the condition of the players who were suffering from pain worsened, even the depth of the outfield weakened. Jack Rex was canceled due to a patellar tendon injury and remains in the first team and is playing, but Ahn Kwon-soo needs constant care due to right elbow pain.
Hwang Seong-bin, who was injured on the 28th of last month, played a comeback game less than a month after leaving. It is a faster return pace than expected. On the 23rd, he returned from injury as a designated hitter in the Futures League against Sangmu and recorded 2 hits and 2 RBIs in 4 at-bats. In the match against Sangmu on the 24th, he started in left field and played defense for 6 innings.
The fact that he has even digested his defense is a positive sign that his return is imminent. However, Hwang Seong-bin’s return is not expected to happen immediately. Coach Larry Sutton explained about Hwang Sung-bin ahead of the resignation NC game on the 25th, “First of all, after today’s game, we will check how he is feeling and plan the next plan accordingly.”
Director Sutton had already softened Hwang Seong-bin’s motivation by saying to Hwang Seong-bin, “Let’s not rush, let’s go according to the program.” Also, what manager Sutton considered was the opponent for the weekend’s three-game series.
Lotte will play 3 consecutive matches with NC during the week and move to Gocheok Sky Dome from the 26th to play 3 consecutive matches. Gocheok Dome is currently the only artificial turf stadium among nine clubs in Korea. Although it is an artificial turf, it is difficult to see that it is well maintained. As it was used as a baseball field as well as for hosting events, the grass became shorter and harder. It is a field where you have no choice but to put a lot of strain on your legs, including your ankles and knees.
It is an atrocious environment for Hwang Seong-bin, who runs a lot and is returning from an ankle injury. Director Sutton took this into account. He said, “As you know, starting tomorrow we will play 3 consecutive away matches against Kiwoom. Gocheok Dome is an indoor stadium and artificial turf is laid on it. We are also considering it,” hinting at the fact that the possibility of Hwang Seong-bin returning in the Gocheok 3-game series is slim.
