Bae Ji-hwan (24, Pittsburgh Pirates), who ended the first half on the 토토사이트injured list due to an ankle injury, is preparing for his comeback. However, there is also a prospect that it will be difficult for his return to happen immediately.
Bae Ji-hwan felt pain in his left ankle during the home game against the Milwaukee Brewers on the 2nd (Korean time). The next day, Bae Ji-hwan was diagnosed with a left ankle sprain and was placed on the 10-day disabled list. It is the first time Bae Ji-hwan, who made his big league debut in September of last year, was put on the injured list.
Bae Ji-hwan was included in the major league roster for the first time this year and is playing a full-time season. He made a mark by showing off various strengths such as his quick feet, excellent running sense, energetic defense, and utility ability.
In the first half, he participated in 76 games and recorded 2 homers, 19 RBIs, 20 stolen bases, 37 points, and an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.609. He ranks first on the team in steals and fifth in runs scored.
However, the recent hitting pace has been on a clear downward trend. Bae Ji-hwan had a batting average of 0.083 (3 hits in 36 at-bats), 1 RBI, 1 steal, 5 walks and 5 runs in the last 15 games, suffering extreme sluggishness.
Pittsburgh will play its first game of the second half against the San Francisco Giants at home on the 15th. However, it is unclear whether Bae Ji-hwan will go on a business trip.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, a Pittsburgh local media, predicted on the 12th, “Bae Ji-hwan will be re-evaluated on the 14th to see if he can play again.”
