Ha-Sung Kim 카지노사이트 (28, San Diego Padres), who has been having a hot July, suffered a shoulder injury in a nasty home run collision. The local media in San Diego is also concerned about his sudden injury.

Kim batted first and second in the lineup against the Texas Rangers at Petco Park in San Diego, California, U.S., on Aug. 31, and went 1-for-1 with a run scored, a walk and a stolen base. He has hit safely in his last six games, raising his season average to 2-for-7 (93-for-333). He also has an .821 OPS.

After drawing a seven-pitch walk in his first at-bat against Texas left-hander Cody Bradford in the first inning, Kim stole second base off Juan Soto. His 21st stolen base of the season.

In the third inning, after a seven-pitch battle with Bradford, Kim drew a three-pitch walk. After leading off with an infield single, Kim advanced to second on a Soto walk and third on a Manny Machado single to right before coming home on Xander Bogaerts’ sacrifice fly to center.

But in the process, Kim was injured. As he sprinted to tag up from third base, Kim went into a head-first slide and collided with catcher Sam Huff, who was blocking home plate with his left knee. His body twisted as his right hand slid into Huff’s knee, and his right shoulder slammed hard into the ground.

Huff was thrown out at home plate by center fielder Leandro Taveras, while Kim, holding his right shoulder, concentrated on touching home with his right hand. It gave San Diego a 1-0 lead.

After lying on the ground near home plate for a while and complaining of pain, Kim entered the dugout and was replaced by Matthew Batten in the fourth inning. While the exact extent of the injury is not yet known, local reporters were quick to share the news on social media.
