San Diego Padres outfielder Ji-Man Choi will be sidelined for the foreseeable future with a sore left rib.
“After feeling pain in his left rib while swinging, Choi was placed on the 10-day disabled list (IL),” MLB.com, the official website of Major League Baseball, announced on Friday. This is the second time this season that Choi has been placed on the disabled list.토스카지노
After being traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates from the Tampa Bay Rays last November, Choi was sidelined for an extended period of time with a left Achilles tendon strain early in the season before returning to action against the Arizona Diamondbacks on March 8.
Another change came in late July. As the trade deadline approached, Choi was traded to San Diego, a team that had consistently raised the possibility of trading him. It was expected that he would quickly integrate into the team as he was paired with Kim Ha-seong.
However, the results so far have been less than satisfactory. In seven games, he has 11 hits, no walks, and five strikeouts. It’s been less than a month since he made the move, but so far, he’s left a lot to be desired.
However, the team still has high hopes for Choi. San Diego manager Bob Melvin wished Choi a speedy return, saying, “I hope his injury doesn’t last long.”
Meanwhile, the Dodgers began a three-game series against the Baltimore Orioles, the team with the best record in the American League. Kim was named to the starting lineup as the leadoff hitter and second baseman.
