Kiwoom Heroes’ ‘genius hitter’ Lee Jeong-hoo (25) is a player who has already achieved everything that can be achieved in the KBO league as a hitter.

In 2017, his first season as a pro, Lee Jung-hoo won the Rookie of the Year title with a batting average of .324, 2 homers, 47 RBIs and 12 steals. 349 with 23 homers and 113 RBIs, and swept the regular season MVP as well as the batting champion for two consecutive years, standing tall as the best hitter in the league both in name and reality.

Lee Jung-hoo’s eyes are on the major leagues. He has already reached an agreement with the Kiwoom club to try to advance to the major leagues through the posting system after the end of this season. This year, he is cruising with a batting average of .319, 6 home runs and 45 RBIs. However, he encountered unexpected bad news.

Lee Jung-hoo was canceled from the first team entry ahead of the match against the Lotte Giants in the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 23rd. It was because of an injury sustained the previous day (22nd).

In the bottom of the 8th inning, Lee Jeong-hoo, who started defending center fielder, injured his left ankle while dashing to catch Kim Min-seok’s hit. He is famous as a player who doesn’t show any pain, but he sent an ‘SOS’ signal to the bench as if he couldn’t stand it. In the end, Lee Jung-hoo, who returned to the bench with a limp on his left leg, had to come up to Seoul alone that day.토토사이트

It can’t be a fateful hospital checkup. Right now, it is not known how Lee Jung-hoo’s physical condition is. Director Kiwoom Hong Won-ki also said, “According to Lee Jung-hoo, he felt something wrong with his ankle while starting to catch Kim Min-seok’s batted ball. In fact, he is not a player who expresses pain, so it is a concern that he expressed that much. I think I will be able to give you a comment after receiving a medical treatment at the hospital and receiving an accurate diagnosis.”

As this is the last season for Kiwoom to play together before Jung-hoo Lee’s challenge to enter the major leagues, he focused on winning the first Korean Series by aggressively reinforcing his strength, but is currently in 8th place with 39 wins, 47 losses and 2 draws (.453 win rate). At least, he breathed a sigh of relief after winning against Sajik Lotte by 5-3 on the 22nd and escaping from an 8-game losing streak.
