‘Ankle pain complaint’ Pittsburgh’s best, but eventually out for 8 weeks… Achilles tendon injury
Hitter Choi Ji-man (32메이저사이트), who plays for the Pittsburgh Pirates of the American Professional Baseball (MLB), cannot play for two months.
The Pittsburgh team announced on the 20th (hereinafter Korean time) that Choi Ji-man’s Achilles tendon injury in his left foot was finally confirmed and he needed about 8 weeks of rehabilitation.
Originally, Choi Ji-man was put on the injured list (IL) after complaining of left ankle pain ahead of the game against the St. Louis Cardinals on the 16th, and was scheduled to return after taking a 10-day break.
However, according to this final diagnosis, his Achilles tendon injury was confirmed, and he plans to focus on treatment while wearing an ankle brace for the time being.
Choi Ji-man, who is said to have felt an ankle problem since spring camp, has been sluggish with a batting average of 0.125 in 9 games this season, but has been improving his sense of hitting by hitting two home runs in the last 3 games.
In the meantime, he has been out of power for a long time due to this injury.
Meanwhile, Choi Ji-man moved from the Tampa Bay Rays to Pittsburgh through a trade in November last year.
