Choi Ji-man, 0-hit in 11 at-bats after moving to SD, fractured ankle in Triple A

Choi Ji-man (32, San Diego Padres) suffered an ankle injury in a minor league Triple A game.

Annie Heilbrun of the San Diego Union-Tribune reported the situation on her social media on the 7th (Korean time), saying, ‘Manager Bob Melvin said Choi Ji-man suffered an ankle fracture yesterday in Minor League Triple A.’ Choi Ji-man was undergoing rehabilitation treatment after being placed on the injured list on the 15th of last month due to a left rib cage sprain. It is known that he will begin the Triple A schedule from the 6th and check his physical condition, but due to an ankle injury, it is expected that he will need a longer time to return.

Ji-Man Choi moved from the Pittsburgh Pirates through a trade on the 2nd. After he switched to San Diego, he appeared in 7 games and went 0-for-11. In 16 plate appearances, he allowed 5 walks (3 strikeouts) and had an on-base percentage of 0.313. His performance on and off the field was below expectations, and to make matters worse, he suffered repeated injuries. San Diego suffered a wrist injury to catcher Gary Sanchez, leaving a huge gap in the team’s strength. “It’s heartbreaking,” said Coach Melvin.온라인바카라
