“In my head, I only think of escaping from a losing streak” First game as an acting manager desperate to win, put forward a lineup to maximize attack power

The Lotte Giants are in dire need of a losing streak. Acting coach Lee Jong-woon revealed that he was only thinking about escaping from losing streak rather than the pressure and excitement of the first game.

On the 31st, at 6:30 pm, Lotte will face off against the Hanwha Eagles in the 11th game at Daejeon Hanwha Life Insurance Eagles Park.

Lotte remains in 7th place with a 50-50 win rate of 0.463. The atmosphere isn’t good lately. They are on a 7-game losing streak.

During this period, the command tower changed. Director Larry Sutton voluntarily resigned on the 28th due to health reasons. Coach Lee Jong-woon, who was the head coach, will lead the rest of the season as an acting manager.

As the 29th and 30th were canceled due to rain for two days in a row, this day became acting manager Lee Jong-woon’s first game.

Acting Lee said, “I have no thoughts about my debut match, and I will do my best in my position. In my head, there is only one thought of escaping from a losing streak. (Hanwha is also losing a losing streak) So are we, and I am also desperate.”

The starting lineup was revealed before the game.

Lotte: Yoon Dong-hee (right fielder) – Lee Jung-hoon (designated hitter) – Ahn Chi-hong (2nd baseman) – Jeon Jun-woo (left fielder) – Jung-hoon (1st baseman) – Gu Drumm (3rd baseman) – Yoo Kang-nam (catcher) – Noh Jin-hyeok (shortstop) – Kim Min-seok (center fielder) ) in order. The starting pitcher is Aaron Wilkerson.

Lee Jung-hoon’s batting order went up. Lee Jung-hoon, who was released from KIA after the end of last season, started a new start by holding Lotte’s hand. This season, he recorded a batting average of 0.385, 1 home run and 10 RBIs in 29 games, adding strength to Lotte’s offensive power.메이저놀이터

His highest batting order this season was 3. Other than that he was out a lot in 5th and 6th. However, on this day, he was placed in the second batting order for the first time in the season.

Acting Lee Jong-woon foreshadowed aggressive baseball, saying, “I will try to be aggressive from the beginning by putting Lee Jung-hoon in number 2.”

‘Multi-Man’ Ha-seong Kim, ‘Flame’ again

The bat of San Diego infielder Kim Ha-seong (28) is heating up again.

Kim Ha-seong started as the first hitter and second baseman in an away game against the Major League (MLB) St. Louis held at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, Missouri, USA on the 30th, and made a big success with 2 hits in 3 at-bats, 1 walk, 1 RBI and 1 run.

Kim Ha-seong, who wrote a’multi-hit’ in 7 games after the match against Miami on the 22nd, also continued the 11-game on-base streak. He also increased his season batting average to 0.276.

Ha-seong Kim produced a hit from his first at-bat in the top of the first inning. He hit St. Louis starter Jack Thompson’s 150.8km/h body fastball on the second pitch and connected it to a heavy hit.

Kim Ha-seong went to second base with a surprise bunt by Juan Soto, the follow-up hitter, and took advantage of the opportunity for the ball thrown by the opposing catcher to first base to fall back and ran to third base.

He then scored the first goal on a sacrifice fly by Fernando Tatis. Kim Ha-seong, who stepped back with a third baseman grounder in the top of the 3rd inning, calmly chose a walk in the top of the 4th inning and succeeded in ‘multi-on-base’.

Ha-sung Kim’s second hit came in the 6th inning with 1 out and 2 base. After a full-count match with a pitcher whose opponent had changed, Kim Ha-seong touched a high ball on the body side, which rolled into an ambiguous course toward third base and led to an infield hit.

In the top of the 8th inning, leading 4-3, he hit a sacrifice fly with one out and 1st and 3rd base, giving the team a runaway score. With this RBI, Ha-seong Kim stepped on the ’50 RBI’ for the second consecutive year. He posted 59 RBIs last year.

Despite Kim Ha-seong’s performance, San Diego tied the game with a two-run homer in the bottom of the eighth inning, leading 5-3, and in the bottom of the 10th, Tommy Hyeon-soo Edmon, who appeared as a pinch hitter, hit a finishing hit and lost 5-6.메이저놀이터

Edmund played as a keystone combination with Kim Ha-seong and the Korean national team at the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) held in March of this year.

“The worst pitch of the year” Still, Miller’s tenacity with 161.3 km, victory over Galen by decision, ‘Big Game Pitcher’ is growing

The next-generation ace of the Los Angeles Dodgers is growing rapidly.

The main character is Bobby Miller (24), a fireballer who throws a powerful fastball that reaches 100 miles. Miller, who was drafted in the first round of the 2020 draft, spent three years in the minor leagues until the beginning of this season and made his major league debut in May. He pitched in 45 minor league games and threw 183 innings, going 10-10 with a 3.79 earned run average and striking out 227 strikeouts.

On May 24 (hereafter Korean time), Miller made his debut with a victory by striking out 1 run in 5 innings, 4 hits, 1 walk, 5 strikeouts against the Atlanta Braves, who boasted a strong batting line, and achieved 3 consecutive quality starts and started. occupied a place.

He struggled against the San Francisco Giants on June 18 (7 runs in 5⅔ innings) and the Houston Astros on June 25 (6 runs in 4 innings) and realized the high wall of the big leagues, but soon found stability and kept the rotation steadily.

Miller started the home game against the Arizona Diamondbacks held at Dodger Stadium on the 29th and became the winning pitcher despite struggling with 7 hits and 4 runs in 6 innings.

Miller marked the season with an 8-3 record and a 4.00 ERA. In particular, he showed his strong side in the ‘big game’ in that he won a head-to-head match against Arizona ace Jack Gallen, who is considered a candidate for the NL Cy Young Award. Galen took the loss by allowing 6 runs on 9 hits in 5⅓ innings. Season 14-6, ERA 3.32.

Miller’s fastball speed, which he threw 34 out of 86 pitches, recorded a maximum of 100.2 miles (about 161.3 km) and an average of 98.9 miles. He threw a mix of changeups (17), curveballs (16), sliders (14) and sinkers (5).

However, on this day, Miller said that his condition was not very good. After the game, he said, “I haven’t had the best pitch this year. But I’m glad I fought through it and didn’t score two innings after the fourth inning. As I always say, I hope the relief pitcher will conserve strength. Every time he pitches, at least I want to throw 6 innings,” he said.메이저사이트

The hitter who bothered Miller was catcher Gabriel Moreno. In the top of the 2nd inning, leading 3-0, Miller hit a double from the left to second baseman Moreno with 2 out and scored the first run. They conceded a comeback by 3-4. The 6th pitch, 98 mph fastball thrown from the ball count 2B2S, entered the outer high course.

However, in the 3rd at-bat in the 6th inning, he threw a 98 mph fastball toward himself and caught it as a ground ball to the third baseman. After Miller held on scoreless in the 5th and 6th innings, the Dodgers batting line turned the tide of the game 6-4 with Jason Heyward’s superior two-run four and James Outman’s superior solo four back-to-back in the bottom of the sixth. Miller now meets the qualifications for a starter win.

Manager Dave Roberts praised him, saying, “He learns a lot of things pretty quickly while facing major league hard-hitting lines. He holds up well until the second half of the game, leading the innings even when the results are good and bad.”

Miller pitched in 16 games this season, and all 15 opponents were different teams before this game. Arizona is the second opponent on the day after meeting in the away game on the 10th, and it is encouraging that they won the victory.

If he has the same perseverance and confidence as he has now, it is highly likely that Miller will be used in fall baseball as well. said, ‘Clayton Kershaw, Julio Urias, and Lance Lynn are the Dodgers’ top three starting pitchers heading into October. Miller followed suit with a 100 mph fastball,’ he commented.

Injury to your precious body… San Diego made Ha-seong Kim’custom helmet’

It was Kim Ha-sung’s trademark running with his helmet off, but it seems difficult to see now. The club prepared a custom helmet for Kim Ha-seong in fear of getting hurt by the ‘precious body’.

This is reporter Choi Jong-hyeok.


When he hits and runs, he always takes off his hair and dances with his hair fluttering, making fans go wild.

Kim Ha-seong, who had only one left until 30 stolen bases, held on to his helmet as a habit even when stealing the base and after the home run he hit on the 17th.

Fans made a ‘Kim Ha-sung helmet map’ to symbolize Kim Ha-sung’s hustle play, and the club also added details to Kim Ha-sung’s doll.

[Kim Ha-seong/San Diego: The helmet is a little big? Do they look alike?]

In fact, Ha-seong Kim confessed that the helmet didn’t fit perfectly.

There was a reason he often peeled off.

Even if you compare Head First Sliding, in Korea, the helmet completely covers Kim Ha-sung’s head.

It’s a scene that brings joy to big league fans, but the club couldn’t leave it as it is.

This is because it may lead to injury.스포츠토토

[Haseong Kim/San Diego: {How is the pad now? I think it’s too much or maybe a little… } This is a bit much. Do you think this is a bit much?]

He finally made a custom helmet for him.

[Manny Machado/San Diego: Will this go well on my head? Make sure the helmet doesn’t come off your head during the game. That’s the most important thing!]

Kim Ha-seong, who played the game wearing a new helmet, got off to a good start with a hit in his first at-bat.

Bae Jun-ho, impressed by the sincerity of Daejeon who took care of his departure, said, “I am very grateful.”

Daejeon Hana Citizen did their best to Bae Joon-ho, who had decided to break up. Even I was moved by the sincerity of Daejeon.

Bae Jun-ho has virtually confirmed his transfer to Stoke City in the English Championship (second division). He left for London, England via Terminal 2 of Incheon International Airport at 9:00 am on the 28th, and if there is no major problem in the medical test, he will become a Stokes player.

On the 25th, he finished his companionship with Daejeon on the 25th with Jeonbuk Hyundai and Hana One Q K League 1 2023 round 28 away match. Although he has only scored two goals this season, his outstanding performances against Atlético Madrid and the U-20 World Cup made his name known in Daejeon. He gave me a reasonable transfer fee, and allowed his transfer because it was his first European advance after the Hana Financial Group system.

Daejeon did their best until the end for Bae Jun-ho, who was leaving. Daejeon fans gave Bae Jun-ho a ticket to return to Daejeon via Europe and sincerely supported his future path.토토사이트

The Daejeon club was the same. From the standpoint of Daejeon, there was no reason to take care of the departure interview.

Daejeon officials came forward to conduct interviews for departure and cheered him on his future path until the end. From Bae Jun-ho’s point of view, he had no choice but to feel like a family, leaving the relationship between the player and the club.

Bae Jun-ho said, “I am very grateful because I received a lot of help during the transfer process. I tried to keep his relationship good. He was always good to me, so he was able to leave while maintaining a good relationship,” he said without forgetting his gratitude.

He said, “Returning to Daejeon is the number one priority. I am also very grateful to the fans,” he reiterated his promise to return to Daejeon when returning to the K-League.

San Diego, where only Kim Ha-seong shines, criticizes the US media for “below the expectations of the Big 4”

“Excluding Kim Ha-seong, the rest of the players are leaving lower grades than their careers.”

The San Diego Padres lost 6-10 in the 2023 Major League Milwaukee Brewers match held at American Family Field in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA on the 28th (Korean time). I gave up the series sweep, and fell into a three-game losing streak. The season record is 61 wins and 70 losses. It was ranked 4th in the National League West Division and 7th in the Wild Card. It is a ranking that is far from third place, which is the last line to advance to the postseason.

San Diego’s recent performance has been disastrous. In particular, they are playing a tough game as the silence of the batting line continues. San Diego has 3 wins and 7 losses in the last 10 games. In the meantime, the gap with the rival teams widened further.

Even in the Milwaukee game, San Diego’s problems were revealed. At every scoring chance, the batting line was silent. San Diego gave up 7 runs in the 6th inning and took a 4-9 lead. However, in the 7th inning, he seized the opportunity to counterattack. This is because Milwaukee bullpen pitcher Abner Uribe was greatly shaken. While Trent Grisham went on base with a hit ball, Matthew Barton and Kim Ha-sung walked and took the chance to get the bases safely loaded.

They had a lot of scoring opportunities, but San Diego only scored two points. When Fernando Tatis Jr. was at bat, Uribe followed up with 2 points with a series of wild throws. However, San Diego had additional scoring chances as Juan Soto’s shortstop’s fly ball, Manny Machado’s first baseman’s fly ball, and Zander Bogaerts’s retreat with a grounder’s from second base. In the end, San Diego became the wealth of Milwaukee’s 8th straight win without achieving a reversal of the atmosphere.

Since last year, San Diego has recruited superstars to challenge for the presidency. Ahead of the trade deadline, they recruited Soto and Josh Hader, and in the Stove League, they embraced Bogarts, the league’s top shortstop, and signed a long-term contract with Manny Machado, who has been at the center of the team. San Diego, which also joined Tatis Jr., who returned after being punished, emerged as a candidate for the championship. However, San Diego’s selection is far below expectations.메이저놀이터

On the 28th, the San Diego Union Tribune, a local media in San Diego, pointed out the sluggishness of the main players, saying, “The performance of Machado, Soto, Tatis Jr., and Bogatz, who are called San Diego’s Big 4, this season is lower than the records they have achieved throughout their careers.”

The media evaluated players based on OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage). Machado is posting an OPS of 0.780 this year, which is his worst performance in the last five years. Soto’s OPS is 0.885, Tatis Jr’s is 0.781, and Bogatz’s is 0.727, career lows.

Unlike the ‘Big 4’ in San Diego, Ha-seong Kim is still active. He is having a career high season with a batting average of 0.274 OPS and 0.807 in 126 games this year. After he was hired as the number one hitter, he showed even better form. He played in 56 games with 62 hits in 217 at-bats, 11 homers, a batting average of 0.286, an on-base percentage of 0.390, and a slugging percentage of 0.484.

The ‘San Diego Union Tribune’ also said, “The Big 4 are earning a total of $68 million this season. However, they are performing below expectations. All players except Kim Ha-seong have performed poorly than they have achieved throughout their careers.” .

There are still 31 games left until the end of the season. For San Diego to make a dramatic postseason move, the hit line needs to explode. San Diego coach Bob Melvin also promised to do his best until the end, saying, “I hope that the batting line, which has been silent throughout the season, will come to life while continuing to play.”

Willian scores ‘theater equalizer’…transformed Seoul draws 2-2 with Ulsan

“We had four days to change a lot of things,” FC Seoul acting head coach Kim Jin-gyu said before the game, and for good reason. In his first game in charge after the departure of Ahn Ik-soo, Kim Jin-gyu’s side came out firing on all cylinders and held on to a 2-2 draw with league leaders Ulsan Hyundai. It wasn’t enough to win, but it was enough to earn a dramatic draw in late stoppage time. Not only did it give them a valuable point, but it also gave them hope for a rebound. The result was especially meaningful for the Seoul club and its fans.

Seoul, led by acting head coach Kim Jin-gyu, drew 2-2 with Ulsan at home in the 28th round of the Hana OneQ K League 2023 at Seoul World Cup Stadium at 7 p.m. on July 27. After a 7-2 victory over Suwon FC on the 12th of last month, Seoul went winless (4 draws and 2 losses), but it was a meaningful draw as the opponent was Ulsan.토토사이트

At the center of it all was Ilyuchenko’s one-timer, which Kim described as “poisonous,” and Willian, who played the joker and scored a theater goal. Ilyuchenko has been struggling for form this season, with inconsistent playing time. In the last six games, he’s been a substitute in three of them and not even on the roster in two of them.

However, he impressed Kim on the training field, including in practice, and earned a starting spot after seven games. “He showed very good form in practice, and he had a lot of energy. I expected him to do something big,” and indeed, on that day, he rattled the Ulsan goal and scored the first goal of Kim’s regime. In addition to the goal, Ilyuchenko also showed his fighting spirit on the front line, competing with the goalkeeper in tackles, and earning applause from the fans.

In the dreary second half of stoppage time, Willian’s doggedness earned the team a point. Willian drove from the left side of the penalty box to the center and shook the opponent’s goal with a powerful shot. He broke down the Ulsan defense with a brilliant dribble and roared as he tore off his jersey after scoring the goal the Seoul fans had been waiting for. In the end, Seoul came away with a dramatic point. The draw meant different things to the two teams.

The draw kept Seoul in fifth place with 40 points (10 wins, 10 draws, and 8 losses). Their winless streak has now stretched to six games. Ulsan moved to 61 points (19 wins, 4 draws, 5 losses), 11 points behind second-place Pohang Steelers (50 points).

On the day, Ulsan deployed a 4-1-4-1 formation with Kim Sang-hyeop, Kim Shin-jin, Palosevic, and Kim Jin-ya in the second line. Ki Sung-yueng played as a defensive midfielder. Lee Tae-seok, Kim Joo-sung, Osmar, and Park Soo-il defended the back line, with Choi Cheol-won in goal. Na Sang-ho, Ji Dong-won, Willian, and Han Seung-kyu waited on the bench.

Ulsan lined up in a 4-2-3-1 formation with Lee In-jong-gyu up front and Bako, Hwang Jae-hwan, and Rubikson in the second line. Lee Dong-kyung and Kim Min-hyuk partnered in the midfield. Lee Myung-jae, Kim Young-kwon, Jung Seung-hyun, and Seol Young-woo lined up on defense. Cho Hyun-woo was in goal. Martin Adam, Ataru, Lee Cheong-yong, and Lee Kyu-sung came off the bench.

Over 4,000 away fans from both Seoul and Ulsan traveled to the stadium, and the pre-match atmosphere was electric. The home team took the early lead. They pressed hard and attacked quickly to find gaps in the Ulsan defense. In the seventh minute, Kim Shin-jin’s header went just wide of the goal.

After swallowing their disappointment, Seoul immediately took the lead. Park Soo-il’s cross from the right flank was cleared off the line by the Ulsan defense, and Ki Sung-yong pounced on the loose ball. The shot deflected off the defense and into the box, where Ilyuchenko connected with a non-stop right-footed shot from the penalty spot to shake the Ulsan goal. It was the ninth minute of the first half.

After taking the lead, Seoul stabilized and broke up Ulsan’s attack with strong pressure, then quickly launched a counterattack. Kim Jin-ya, who was deployed as a forward on the right flank, exerted his strength with his fast speed. In the 15th minute, they had a chance to add another goal. After receiving a penetrating pass from Kim Shin-jin, Ilyuchenko went one-on-one with the goalkeeper. She lost her balance and fell down in front of the goalkeeper, but she kept possession of the ball until the end and sent it behind her. Kim Jin-ya got a shot off, but it hit the side netting.

From there, it was all Seoul. Seoul’s fans cheered and applauded the Ulsan players, even if they were rough and tumble. After clearing the ball, they wasted no time in launching a quick counterattack to find space behind the Ulsan defense. Ulsan gained possession and took the initiative, while Seoul responded with pressure and counterattacks.

Ulsan also started to take their chances. In the 33rd and 35th minutes of the first half, Lee Dong-kyung took two shots on goal with his left foot. However, they were either blocked by the goalkeeper or went just wide of the goal. In the 43rd minute, Gilsera Seoul had a chance to add another goal. Kim Shin-jin sent in a cross from the right flank that was met with a no-mark header by Choi Hyun-woo, but the goalkeeper was able to make the save. The first half ended with Seoul leading 1-0. The supporters’ section of the stadium erupted in cheers for a different Seoul.

At the start of the second half, substitute Kim Jin-gyu took over. He made changes by removing Ilyuchenko, who scored the goal, as well as Kim Jin-ya and Kim Sang-hyeop, and inserting Na Sang-ho, Willian, and Han Seung-gyu. Ulsan continued its offense for the equalizer by utilizing corner kicks early in the second half. However, Seoul’s goal was not easily opened by Choi Chul-won.

The offense continued. Seoul also had a corner kick from Ki Sung-yueng that was headed by substitute Na Sang-ho, but he missed the target. Han Seung-kyu’s powerful right-footed shot was also blocked by Cho Hyun-woo’s punch. Ulsan also tried to equalize with Lee Dong-kyung’s powerful left-footed shot, but it was saved by Choi Chul-won.

Head coach Hong Myung-bo also made a change in search of an equalizer. In the 13th minute, Lee Cheong-yong and Rubiksson, who were substitutes for Hwang Jae-hwan, were removed and Martin Adam and Lee Kyu-sung were introduced. The team continued its offense for the equalizer, utilizing Lee Kyu-gyu and Martin Adam as the front two. They equalized in the 19th minute of the second half. Bako’s shot from the left side of the penalty box was saved by goalkeeper Choi Chul-won, but the onrushing Inhabigyu finished it off. The VAR confirmed that Inhabigyu was offside, but the goal was allowed to stand.

With momentum on their side, Ulsan turned the game around in the fourth minute. After clearing the ball out of their own half, they immediately launched a counterattack. Seol Young-woo’s ground ball cross from the right flank was met by Lee In-gyu with a right-footed shot that rattled the Seoul goal. Seoul’s quick lead quickly turned into the visitors’ lead.

Backed into a corner, Seoul went on the offensive. They regained possession and found Ulsan’s gaps. In the 33rd minute, they took off Ki Sung-yueng and brought on Ji Dong-won, putting more weight on the front line in hopes of scoring a goal. However, Seoul’s attacks came to nothing. Even when they did manage to get a shot on goal, they were unable to capitalize on it.

Ulsan began to consolidate the victory by focusing on defense. With Kim Young-kwon and Jung Seung-hyun at the center of the defense, as well as Cho Hyun-woo, the goal was hardly open. Seoul’s focus on finding an equalizer finally paid off in the fifth minute of stoppage time. Willian cut in from the left side of the penalty box and rattled the Ulsan net, and the game ended in a 2-2 draw. It was a valuable draw for Seoul in many ways.

“Ohtani refused to be tested, I have no regrets” Transferring responsibility for LAA’s head, is this a catastrophe?

Los Angeles Angels general manager Perry Minassian is controversial for his remarks that shifted responsibility for injury to Shohei Otani (29).

‘’ reported on the 27th (hereinafter Korean time) why Minasian general manager did not undergo an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) test before Ohtani suffered an elbow medial collateral ligament (UCL) injury against reporters ahead of the New York Mets game. said to have clarified it.

Ohtani suffered pain in his right elbow while pitching in Game 1 of a doubleheader against the Cincinnati Reds on the 24th, and tests revealed a ruptured medial collateral ligament. As a pitcher for the remainder of the season, he could no longer throw the ball, and the possibility of a second Tommy John surgery following October 2018 increased. If he undergoes surgery, he can be a pitcher for at least one year only after rehabilitation. It is a thunderstorm ahead of FA.

LAA captain refutes the point of negligence in player management “Ohtani and Agent refused to test”

On the 4th against the Seattle Mariners, Ohtani showed symptoms of finger cramps and was forced to throw 59 pitches in 4 innings. After the match against the San Francisco Giants on the 10th, he showed symptoms of fatigue and skipped the rotation once. The ‘abnormal signal’ came out one after another, but the Angels club did not inspect Ohtani’s physical condition, so it was pointed out about negligence in management.

When the arrow of criticism was pointed, the leader Minassian came forward to explain. According to general manager Minassian, the Angels suggested examining Ohtani’s arm after he went down early with finger cramps in the game against Seattle on the 4th. However, Minassian’s explanation is that Ohtani and his agent Nez Valero refused to proceed with the examination.

Director Minassian said, “I offered a test, but Ohtani and his agent refused. I understand you did that. It could be because I just had a cramp in my finger, and I didn’t think it was necessary to do a test,” he said. “The only time I had an MRI was after the injury. At the beginning of this year, I also offered to shoot, but Ohtani and my agent rejected it.”

Angels coach Phil Nevin also said, “When I was a player, when I asked to be tested, I said no. It is because he wanted to keep running,” he said, considering his position as a player. Director Minassian said, “The damaged ligaments this time were different from when I had my first surgery in 2018, and the symptoms were different. So Ohtani would not have thought that there would be a problem with the ligaments.”

Director Minassian continued, “Ohtani and I have been together for three years. I believe the way we did, Ohtani had a very good three seasons. Personally, I have no regrets at all. It’s an unfortunate thing that unavoidably happened. It’s unfortunate for the player himself, the team, and the baseball world, but injuries in baseball can happen.”

Passing responsibility to the player, the head of the LAA facing a headwind… Chances of Ohtani remaining FA lower

Minassian explained the unfair point in his own way, but he is facing a backlash by exuding a nuance that seems to shift the responsibility for the injury to Ohtani. The possibility of Ohtani remaining is even lower. The prevailing prospect is that Ohtani, who will become a free agent at the end of this season, will move to the championship team, but there are observations that this incident may have effectively ended the relationship with the Angels.

The American ‘The Athletic’ said, ‘If Ohtani and the agent did not know that Minassian would say such a thing, it could be controversial. It would be very surprising if Minassian general manager said this without consulting Ohtani, as he directly transferred responsibility for not being thorough in player management. can Director Minassian said that he had a good relationship with Ohtani and his agent, Valero, but all of these situations have definitely grown into situations that could cause problems.”메이저놀이터

Meanwhile, it is not yet known whether Ohtani’s elbow ligaments were completely or partially torn. Currently, Ohtani is receiving a second opinion on the condition of his elbow. “I don’t know how long that process will take, but until then, Ohtani will continue to be included in the lineup,” Minassian said. “Nothing has been updated yet. The decision is up to Ohtani, and he will decide what he wants to do. We will make an announcement at the appropriate time.”

Although the season ended as a pitcher, batter Ohtani’s runaway continues. Since the day he suffered an elbow injury, he has hit in all four of his last games and is batting .455 (5-for-11).
