Lotte announced the news of catcher Jeong Jeong-geun’s injury on the 17th.
Jeong Jeong-geun started as a catcher in the 12th game of the season against Samsung held at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu on this day. Lotte acting manager Lee Jong-woon explained, “It was a choice that took into consideration various factors, including (starting catcher) Yoo Kang-nam’s rest and compatibility with the starting pitcher.”
Jeong Jeong-geun had a beautiful month last August, awakening his batting talent while Yoo Kang-nam was out due to a side injury. The monthly batting average was .4339 li (18 hits in 41 at-bats) with 1 home run and 9 RBIs, and an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 1.179, including one triple and four doubles in addition to the home run.
However, after Yoo Kang-nam returned, he was unable to avoid a slump. In particular, in September, he went 0-for-11, had 2 walks, and had an OPS of 0.214.
On this day, in his first at-bat in the top of the second inning, he retired with three outs, but in the top of the fourth inning, he led the way by hitting a heavy hit as the lead hitter.
However, when Lee Hak-joo’s subsequent hit hit the second baseman and fell out, Jeong Bo-geun thought he was caught and took a reverse move to return to base, then ran to third base again. During this process, he complained of hamstring pain and was replaced by Son Seong-bin.Jeong Jeong-geun underwent a detailed examination at Daegu Semyung Hospital immediately after being replaced and was diagnosed with a second-degree rupture of his right hamstring. The club explained, “It takes about three weeks to recover.” He is receiving a long-awaited opportunity and is a player whose first-team experience is important, but he unexpectedly faced the misfortune of being almost out of the regular season.
