American Professional Baseball Major League (MLB) Pittsburgh Korean batter Choi Ji-man’s return to the ‘big league’ is imminent.
According to a report by News 1 on the 20th (Korean time), Jiman Choi’s official said, “On the 22nd, Jiman Choi will join the Triple A Indianapolis Indians under Pittsburgh and participate in a minor league rehabilitation game.”
Choi Ji-man was placed on the 60-day disabled list due to an Achilles tendon injury in his left foot after the match against St. Louis on April 14. On April 11 and 12, against Houston, he hit home runs in two consecutive games to improve his sense of hitting, but was hindered by an injury.
Choi Ji-man played in 9 games before his injury, recording a batting average of 0.125 (4 hits in 32 at-bats) and 2 homers.스포츠토토
Choi Ji-man devoted himself to his rehabilitation by wearing walking boots to protect his ankles. During the course of treatment, he also underwent autologous platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP injection). Early last month, he conducted catch ball and defense training on the field. He is known to have digested running training along with batting recently.
If it is finally confirmed that there is no abnormality in physical condition, it is scheduled to return to the big league in time for the San Diego game that will be held at home from the 28th.
