‘Hamstring injury’ NC Park Seok-min to play in 2nd team on 23rd—80% chance of getting on base
According to the NC club, Park Seok-min will play in the Samsung Lions’ second team game at Masan Stadium on the 23rd. Park went down after grabbing his right hamstring while running the bases against the LG Twins in Jamsil on March 19. The hamstring is a muscle in the back part of the thigh that connects the hip and knee joints. If the quadriceps, the inner thigh muscle, is the engine, the hamstring is the brake. It’s an area that’s prone to recurrence, so Park was careful to build his body carefully. The club said, “He is currently at the stage where he can run 80% of the bases,” and “we are increasing the intensity of his technical training.”
They plan to check his physical condition in the second team game and decide when he will return to the first team. As it is a very sensitive injury area, it is expected to adjust the game sensation without overdoing it. “I think his return will be in June, but the exact time will have to be decided by playing the game and seeing his physical condition,” NC head coach Lim Sun-nam said in a phone call to this newspaper. 메이저사이트
Park appeared in 15 games before the injury, batting .250 (11-for-44) with one home run and six RBIs. The veteran has played 1682 career games. NC manager Kang Myung-hyun has been relying on Do Tae-hoon and Seo Ho-chul to play third base since Park’s departure. Both players have exceeded expectations. Do Tae-hoon is batting .290 (62-for-18) on the season, while Seo Ho-chul is hitting .309 (94-for-29) in 31 games. The return of Park Seok-min should give the infield a little more breathing room.
