‘Adductor muscle pain’ NC catcher Ahn Jung-yeol → Samsung catcher Kim Jae-sung to the second team, totaling 5 players removed from the first team

A total of five players were removed from the first team roster on Monday, a non-baseball day.

The KBO announced the roster changes on the 23rd. A total of five players from NC, Samsung, KT, and SSG were demoted to the second team.

The most notable is NC’s Ahn Jung-yeol. Ahn was injured against the Changwon LG on July 27.  In the bottom of the fourth inning, Ahn came to bat with runners on first and second with no outs, laid down a bunt and sprinted to first base, but was hit by a pitch. Ahn felt pain in his thigh while running and was replaced by Kim Hyung-jun in the field in the top of the fifth inning. An NC official said, “Ahn Jung-yeol felt discomfort in his right adductor muscle while running in the bottom of the fourth inning and was replaced. He is currently undergoing icing treatment.” Perhaps the injury is not good.

NC, which utilized a three-catcher roster when it called up Kim Hyung-jun on the 23rd, was down to two with Ahn Joong-yeol. In four games since his call-up, Kim has been hitting .429 with two home runs, two doubles, two RBIs, and a 1.786 OPS.

In addition to NC, KT and SSG also released one player each. KT released outfielder Kim Byung-jun. Called up to the first team on July 19, Kim went 0-for-2 in three games and was sent back to the second team nine days later.

SSG sent down infielder Choi Jun-woo. Jun-woo Choi was called up on June 12, but hasn’t seen much action in August. In his last 10 games, he’s hitless in six at-bats.메이저놀이터

Samsung, on the other hand, designated two players for assignment. Pitcher Lee Sang-min and catcher Kim Jae-sung were sent down to the second team.

Kim is batting just .200 with one home run and six RBIs in 43 games this season. He hasn’t been much better in his last 10 games, batting .077 in a rough stretch. This leaves Samsung with only one catcher on the roster, Kang Min-ho. The team is likely to call up a catcher ahead of the 29th game. Lee Sang-min is 2-1 with an 8.83 ERA in 22 games with one save. In his most recent appearance, he gave up three runs on three hits without recording a single out against Daegu Kiwoom on April 27.
