Baseball’s KIA’s next-generation left-handed ace Lee Yi-ri, 21, was found to have a minor injury, thankfully.
“Lee Yi-ri was found to have partial inflammation of the scapular joint at a hospital checkup,” KIA said on March 23, “and will be out of the starting rotation for about one start to rest.” Lee made a start against KT in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League the previous day, but was pulled early due to shoulder pain after throwing 76 pitches in the fourth inning.
However, KIA removed Lee from the first team roster the same day. Oh Sun-woo was designated for assignment to protect the player.스포츠토토
Lee went 10-6 with a 3.84 ERA in 21 games this year. It was his second straight year with double-digit wins, including 10 last year.
Lee’s performance earned him a spot on the national team for the Hangzhou Asian Games in September. The Asian Games team will have to deal with the loss of its top hitter Lee Jung-hoo (Kiwoom) to injury.
