Kim Ha-seong (28, San Diego Padres) was forced to leave the game due to an untimely injury.
Kim was batting seventh and playing third base against the Washington Nationals at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C., USA, on 26 June when he suffered the injury in his first at-bat of the second inning. Trailing 0-1 with two outs in the top of the second inning, Kim swung at a second pitch from Washington starter Jake Irvin and was struck directly in the left knee by a foul ball. After being hit in an unprotected area, Kim complained of excruciating pain.
He left the game immediately after checking with the trainer and was replaced in the lineup by Brandon Dixon. MLB.com, the official website of Major League Baseball (MLB), reported that “San Diego did not provide an immediate update on Kim’s condition. ‘The San Diego infield has had a tough time over the past few weeks. Manny Machado suffered a fractured left metacarpal and remains on the disabled list,” explaining that Kim, the team’s starting second baseman, has moved to third base in Machado’s absence. The loss of Machado and Kim means that the infield is in danger of being even more shaky.안전놀이터
Kim is batting .237 (36-for-152) with five home runs and 16 RBIs in 47 games this season.
