Another injured player appeared in professional baseball KT Wiz. Key bullpen Lee Sang-dong (28) left due to ligament rupture.

KT coach Lee Kang-cheol said ahead of the 2024 professional baseball home game against SSG Landers held at Suwon KT Wiz Park on the 13th, “Lee Sang-dong sprained his ankle while running to play home backup defense in yesterday’s game against SSG, and as a result of a hospital examination, he was diagnosed with a ruptured right ankle ligament. He said, “I need to rest and rehabilitate for at least 8 weeks.”

Manager Lee said, “Lee Sang-dong has to play the role of a sure-win team along with closer Park Young-hyun and setup man Kim Min-soo, but he is in an awkward situation,” and added, “We have no choice but to stop him with the remaining pitchers until Lee Sang-dong returns.”

Lee Sang-dong is a key bullpen player who recorded 4 wins, 1 loss, 1 hold, and an ERA of 3.98 in 36 games last season.

This season, he recorded an average ERA of 6.00 with 1 loss and 3 holds in 9 games.

He suffered from poor ball control early this season, but recently succeeded in adjusting his pitch to zero, raising expectations.

KT, which was considered a candidate for the championship, is having a difficult time with key players leaving due to injury at the beginning of the season.

Local ace Go Young-pyo had his entry canceled on the 5th due to a minor injury to his right elbow flexor, and starting outfielders Bae Jeong-dae and Kim Min-hyuk left at the same time on the 8th.

Bae Jeong-dae was diagnosed with a scaphoid fracture in his left ankle, and Kim Min-hyuk needed two weeks of rehabilitation due to pain in his right shoulder.

As of the 12th, kt is in 9th place with 5 wins, 13 losses, and a winning percentage of 0.278. 섯다
