Justin Turner, who has built his nest for the Boston Red Sox this season, was injured after being hit in the face by a pitch during an exhibition game.
Turner was hit in the face by a ball thrown by an opposing pitcher during an MLB demonstration game held at Jet Blue Park in Fort Myers, Florida on the 7th (Korean time).
In the bottom of the first inning, Turner, who entered the plate with no outs on first and second base, was hit by a fastball thrown by Matt Manning of the Detroit Tigers and collapsed on the spot.
After being unable to get up for a while, Turner walked out of the arena, stopping the bleeding with a towel. He was subsequently taken to the hospital.스포츠토토
His wife, Courtney Turner, said on Instagram: “I had 16 stitches and the injured area was very swollen, but fortunately there was no fracture.”
The Boston club said, “Turner is being monitored for a concussion and will conduct further tests.”
After finishing last season, Turner left the Los Angeles Dodgers, where he had been with for nine years, and signed a one-year, $15 million contract with Boston.
Meanwhile, New York Mets left-hander Jose Quintana suffered a microscopic stress fracture to his left rib.
He was also excluded from the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) Colombian team.
