“Luckily avoided a fracture” Doosan’s missing limb, Jang Seung-hyun stunned by sand dunes

Doosan catcher Jang Seung-hyun, 29, was hit in the left hand by a pitch from pitcher Won Tae-in in the third inning at Jamsil Samsung Electronics on Sept. 9. Seung-hyun Jang fell to the ground in pain, but quickly got up and walked to first base.

Although the hit was painful, it was not a major injury, and he continued to play normally until the ninth inning. After the rainout against Samsung Electronics on the 10th, Jang Seung-hyun was named to the starting lineup against Hanwha in Daejeon on the 11th as the No. 8 hitter.

In a pregame interview, Doosan manager Lee Seung-yeop said, “I saw that it was hard (when he was hit), but he said he would do what he could. He was hit by the guard on top of his hand, so luckily he avoided a fracture. If there wasn’t a guard, it would have been a fracture.” “He got a day off yesterday and improved a lot. He has good chemistry with starter Brandon Waddell, so he will start today,” said Jang Seung-hyun.스포츠토토

Doosan will be without starting catcher Yang Yang-ji due to injury. After feeling pain in his left side against KT in Jamsil on May 5, Yang was diagnosed with a micro-injury to his side muscle that will require two to three weeks of recovery time and was removed from the first team roster on July 7.

With the main catcher out, the loss of backup Jang Seung-hyun would have left a huge hole in the infield. Luckily, the injury was avoided and Doosan can continue to fight for fifth place without any further losses.

Meanwhile, Doosan’s starting lineup against Hanwha right-hander Han Seung-hyuk was Jung Soo-bin (center field), Kim Jae-ho (shortstop), Jose Rojas (left field), Yang Seok-hwan (first base), Kim Jae-hwan (designated hitter), Kang Seung-ho (second base), Kim In-tae (right field), Jang Seung-hyun (catcher), and Heo Kyung-min (third base). The starting pitcher is Brandon.
