The LG Twins suffered another injury at the beginning of the season. Shortstop Oh Ji-hwan will be out for more than two weeks due to an oblique muscle injury.
Prior to the game against Samsung at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 7th,메이저놀이터 the PR team of the LG club announced the condition of Oh Ji-hwan’s injury. The LG club said, “As a result of Ji-hwan Oh’s MRI examination at the hospital in the afternoon, the result came out that he needed to be treated for more than two weeks due to microscopic damage to the oblique muscle in his right flank.”
Oh Ji-hwan’s side was not in good condition even before Gocheok Raising on the 6th. Oh Ji-hwan contributed to the team’s victory by starting as the fifth hitter shortstop in the match against Kiwoom on the 6th and recording 1 hit in 3 at-bats, 2 steals, 1 RBI and 1 run.
However, he traded injuries for victories. On the 7th, Oh Ji-hwan, who participated in team training before the game against Samsung in Jamsil and practiced batting, said that his side continued to be uncomfortable.

Coincidentally, shortstop resources continue to go down with injuries. Son Ho-hyung went down to the rehabilitation group at the end of the exhibition game due to biceps femoris, and Kim Joo-seong was also excluded from the first team entry due to a recent residual injury. On this day, veteran Kim Min-seong will play as shortstop.
