What position will Kim Kwang-hyeon (33, St. Louis Cardinals) take after rehab?
Kim Kwang-hyun, who was on the injured list due to elbow pain, started rehabilitation at Triple A on the 20th (Korean time).
Kim Kwang-hyun, who started in a game against the Milwaukee Brewers’ Nashville Sound, recorded two hits (2 homers) and 2 runs and two runs in two innings. A total of 34 balls were thrown.
As it is a rehabilitation climb, the prognosis is more important than the content of the climb. On the 21st, Katie Wu, a reporter in charge of The Athletic St. Louis, said, “Kim Kwang-hyun said that he feels good after rehab.”
Kim Kwang-hyun received an injection of cortisone, which is mainly used to treat inflammation. Katie explained, “Kim Kwang-hyun received a cortisone injection a few days ago and it helped a lot,” and explained that the injection treatment showed good results.
Since no abnormal signs were found after rehab, it is expected that Kim Kwang-hyun’s return date will be set soon.
The key is position. Katie said, “St. Louis is considering Kim Kwang-hyun’s return schedule and how to use him as a starting pitcher or a bullpen pitcher.”
Kim Kwang-hyun, who is in his second year in the major leagues, has started in 19 games this season and has a 6-6 record with a 3.36 ERA.
