‘Even if 1st place → 4th place fell in 5 days…’ PIT leader “Choi Ji-man, but he returned after playing as many rehab games as possible”

 Choi Ji-man (32) and Bae Ji-hwan (24)’s Pittsburgh team are ending a shocking June.

On the 16th (Korean time) alone, Pittsburgh cruised while maintaining first place in the Central Division of the National League. A playoff run was also possible. However, while suffering 10 consecutive losses from the Chicago Cubs on the 14th to the Miami on the 23rd, it fell to fourth place in the district on the 21st, only five days later. On the 28th and 29th, he won two consecutive victories over San Diego, but the ranking is still in 4th place.

The season record was 37 wins and 42 losses. The win rate, which once exceeded 60%, fell to 0.468, below 50%. There were also 5 games with Cincinnati, the No. 1 player in the district. There are only 4 games against St. Louis, the lowest in the world.

Although the situation is not good, Pittsburgh general manager Ben Sherington (49) did not appear to be greatly shaken.

In an interview with local radio KDKA-FM on the 27th, he said, “When you get to this point in the regular season, you see part of the team’s performance.” “You have to keep moving forward to find a way to win. All the other teams do that too. Otherwise, you’ll fall behind the competition.”

General manager Sherington expressed expectations for young players in the team, including hitters Henry Davis (24) and Nick Gonzalez (24), who were recently called up, and pitcher Carmen Mozinski (24). He first said, “I can’t say that young players get a lot of opportunities to play, but they do not necessarily improve their skills, but there is a possibility.”

“If you look inside our organization, there are many young and promising pitchers who can make an impact at the major league level, not only in Pittsburgh (major league team) but also in the minor leagues,” he said. More of this will happen in the future,” he said.

He also brought news of the injured. After presuming that “there are parts that affect the team due to injuries,” Sherington said, “bullpen pitcher Colin Holderman (28) will be the first to return.” At the same time, he hinted at the possibility of a prolonged vacancy, saying, “The exact condition of outfielder Brian Reynolds (28), who was most recently on the injured list, is unknown.”

He also mentioned Korean first baseman Choi Ji-man. “Choi Ji-man is currently in the minor leagues rehabbing and weighing the timing of his return to the major leagues,” he said.

Choi Ji-man, who is recovering from an Achilles tendon injury at the beginning of this season, is showing signs of recovery by playing an active role in a match against the Triple-A Louisville Bats (Cincinnati) held on the 29th with 1 hit, 1 walk and 3 RBIs in 3 at-bats, including a two-run home run.카지노사이트

Sherington’s general manager revealed that he was also considering ‘external blood transfusion’ to escape his sluggish performance. “I’ve been talking to all major league clubs to find out who can be recruited, but all of them prioritize understanding the current situation of their team,” he said. Rather than discussing a trade right away, we will take a wait-and-see position to find more buyers.”

“For this reason, there won’t be much movement until the end of July, the trade deadline,” he said.
