Geoffo returns to the PS team after a hamstring injury, resulting in a dramatic win and expressing a desire to do something more.
“I wondered if this was right….”
Choi Jung (36-SSG Landers) has made a dramatic jump to the postseason roster.
Choi had been a solid performer as a “giant third baseman” this season, batting 2-for-9 with seven doubles and 29 home runs in 128 games, but suffered an unexpected injury late in the season. He felt pain in his hamstring during a game against the KIA Tigers on October 10, and a scan revealed micro-damage.
Without Choi, SSG barely clinched third place in the final game of the regular season and qualified for the semi-playoffs.
Choi was able to enter the season a little more fit.
Choi was named to the starting lineup at third base for the first game of the semifinals against the NC Dinos at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on April 22. SSG manager Kim Won-hyung said, “I checked in with her until this morning. 카지노사이트킴 I got the OK from the training staff and the coaches in charge, and he said he was fine.”
Choi said, “I’m not 100 percent, only 70 to 80 percent, but thanks to my teammates, I’ve been able to prepare,” adding, “That’s where I first got sick. I think it was cumulative. I had a tight feeling, and then suddenly it got cold, so I made a quick turn and it hurt.”
Choi said he’s “worried” every postseason, but he’s been a consistent home run hitter. Last year, he hit 4-for-7 and was a key part of the team’s championship run.
This season, he hasn’t been in perfect shape. “I was like, ‘Is this right? I had a break, and it’s the postseason. If I couldn’t do it in the regular season, I still have tomorrow, but I don’t know now. I’m very worried.” However, he also said, “I feel more relaxed. It’s not the Korean Series, it’s the semi-playoffs. I think it will have a better effect,” and said, “I hope I can do something personally.”
Meanwhile, SSG’s starting lineup was Oh Tae-gon (first base), Park Sung-han (shortstop), Choi Jung (third base), Guillermo Heredia (left field), Han Yu-seom (designated hitter), Ha Jae-hoon (right field), Choi Ji-hoon (center field), Kim Sung-hyun (second base), and Kim Min-shik (catcher).
