Lee Jung-hoo returns after 4G → 1st fence collision shoulder injury

Lee Jung-hoo played as the first batter and center fielder in a home game against the Cincinnati Reds in the 2024 Major League Baseball (MLB) at Oracle Park in San Francisco, California, on the 13th (Korea time), but was replaced without playing a single at-bat.

The situation was like this. San Francisco Giants’ starting pitcher Kyle Harrison was shaken up and was on the verge of loading the bases with two outs from the beginning. He hit a 92-mile (148.1 km/h) four-seam fastball to Jaymer Candelario, who was facing off in the situation, but was hammered as it was.

Lee Jung-hoo, who was chasing a home run ball to the right-center, jumped to catch the ball, but collapsed after hitting the fence. The ball hit the top of the fence and fell to the ground, and in the meantime, all three runners homered.

Lee Jung-hoo couldn’t stand up for a while, and looked in pain, touching his left shoulder. San Francisco right fielder Mike Yastremski came to check on Lee Jung-hoo. Another outfielder, Eliot Ramos, gestured toward the dugout.

Soon, trainer Dave Grossner, interpreter Han Dong-hee of Lee Jung-hoo and director Bob Melvin headed to the ground. Lee Jung-hoo was helped to the dugout, and San Francisco deployed Tyler Fitzgerald as a guard.

Lee was bruised after being hit on the left foot by a pitch that he hit in an away game with the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday. He missed three consecutive games thereafter. The game against Cincinnati on Tuesday local time was Lee’s return match. He tried to prevent his team from losing points through gritty play, but luck didn’t run out.안전놀이터

The San Francisco Giants announced that Lee Jung-hoo was excluded from the game due to a shoulder strain. MLBCOM said, “Lee Jung-hoo is highly likely to be placed on the injured list. The Giants will likely promote Marco Luciano, an outfielder in their team.”
