Ha-Sung Kim of the San Diego Padres avoided a serious injury during the match.
Local media such as CBS Sports reported today (23rd), “Kim Ha-sung underwent an X-ray examination of the finger of his right hand, and no major abnormalities were found.”
Kim Ha-seong was not on the Injured List (IL).
He started the day before in a home game against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Petco Park in San Diego, California, and was hit by a batted ball in the defensive process.
At the beginning of the 6th inning, leading 6-1, the two-out 1st and 3rd base were in crisis, but while trying to catch Will Smith’s assault bat, the ball hit his finger and dropped.
Ha-seong Kim caught the missed ball again and calmly threw it to first base.
Returning to the bench, Ha-seong Kim informed the training coach of the injury and missed the defense in the 7th inning.
Kim Ha-seong avoided fatal injuries such as bones, ligaments, and muscles, but as the pain remains, it seems that he will have to focus on body care for the time being.
Kim Ha-seong was excluded from the starting lineup for the home game against the Los Angeles Dodgers on the 23rd.
