A familiar face stood out at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu, where the 2023 Rapak Campaign was held on Friday. The main character was Samsung Lions infielder Lee Jae-hyun.
Lee Jae-hyun, who had been suffering from a dislocated left shoulder throughout the season, was diagnosed with a habitual dislocation that required surgery after a checkup at a hospital on the 16th of last month, and underwent left shoulder arthroscopic surgery at a Seoul hospital on the 23rd.
Speaking to reporters before the event, Lee Jae Hyun said, “After the surgery, my shoulder feels much softer. I am currently undergoing basic rehabilitation, and I am recovering smoothly thanks to the good management of the training part.”
“I had two check-ups and they said it wasn’t good, so I had the surgery, and now I don’t have to worry about dislocating my shoulder,” he added.
“It’s not like I’m so injured that I can’t walk, and it’s a club event that happens only a few times a year, so of course I have to come,” he smiled as he participated in the club event while wearing a brace.
Jae-hyun will also appear at a fan-invited pork belly party organized by Kang Min-ho on February 2.
“I’m glad to have the opportunity to say hello to the fans, and I’m always grateful for their support,” he said.
Meanwhile, Lee Jae-hyun, who started his professional career last year with Samsung’s first-round pick after graduating from Seoul High, played 143 games this season as the starting shortstop, batting .458 (114-for-148) with 12 home runs, 60 RBI, 61 runs scored and five stolen bases.
His hitting stats were noticeably better, 먹튀검증토토사이트 with triple-digit hits and double-digit home runs for the first time in his career. He was especially hot in the month of August, batting .355 (20-for-56) with three home runs and 12 RBIs.
Park, who was called the ‘national shortstop’ during his playing days, said, “It’s great for a second-year shortstop to do as well as I did. He’s much more skilled and experienced than last year,” Park said.
He also said, “There must be physical pressure as he played a lot of games this season, but he is overcoming it well and is building his own career well. I wasn’t as experienced as Lee Jae-hyun in my second year. I was very nervous and she was much better than me.”
