Samsung Lions Kang Min-ho was replaced with a bruise during the game.

Kang Min-ho started as catcher number 4 in his first game of the week against Kiwoom at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu on the 20th. In order to fully operate the three-catcher system that Samsung is proud of, all three catchers started the game. Kang Min-ho was the catcher, Kim Jae-seong was the first baseman, and Kim Tae-goon was the designated hitter at positions 4, 5, and 6.토토사이트

At the end of the 7th inning when the score was tied 2-2, Ji-Young Lee with 2nd out and 1st base cut the 2nd cutter of Samsung starter Buchanan. The short-bent ball hit Kang Min-ho’s right wrist. Trainer quickly approached Kang Min-ho, who was complaining of pain, and checked his condition.

Batter Lee Ji-young, a former colleague and catcher, also stared at senior Kang Min-ho with a worried expression.

Kim Tae-gun, who was in the dugout, hurriedly put on his protective gear. Kang Min-ho eventually walked into the dugout.

Instead of Kim Tae-gun, Kim Jae-seong, who was on first base, hurriedly came in and replaced him as catcher. Gong Min-gyu was put in first base instead of Kim Jae-seong.

Kang Min-ho’s sudden replacement made the ground a mess. Lee Ji-young’s shortstop grounder made an error, and the shaken Buchanan walked, followed by Kim Hye-sung’s two RBIs, and went down the mound.

A Samsung official explained, “I was hit by a ball on my right wrist and the player’s protective gear was changed. I went to Semyeong Hospital in Gyeongsan, and no abnormal findings were found as a result of X-ray and CT scans.”
