Doosan, which has a long road ahead of it, suffered a setback when starter Choi Seung-yong was removed from the game in the top of the third inning due to a blister.

Seung-yong Choi started the 11th game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League against NC at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul, South Korea, on April 19 and pitched 2⅔ innings of one-hit ball with two strikeouts and no walks before being replaced by Kim Myung-shin.

Choi signaled to the bench by looking at his finger after getting Ahn Jung-yeol to fly out to center field with one out in the third inning with the score tied 0-0. A trainer and pitching coach Kwon Myung-cheol came to the mound, and after checking his finger, the pitcher was replaced by Kim Myung-shin.

The reason for the change was a blister. “Choi Seung-yong was replaced due to a blister on his left middle finger,” a Doosan official explained.안전놀이터

Kim Myung-shin gave up a single to Son As-seob in the first inning, putting runners on first and second, but he got Park Min-woo to fly out to shortstop to end the inning. It was the moment when one of Choi Seung-yong’s successors was erased.

In addition to Choi’s injury, center fielder Jung Soo-bin also complained of pain in his left thigh after catching Ahn Jung-yeol’s hit and was checked by the trainer. Fortunately, he stayed on the field and finished the inning normally, but was replaced by pinch-hitter Cho Su-hyung after a fielder’s choice in the third inning. Jung Soo-bin was injured on the 15th when he was hit in the thigh by a pitch from William Cuevas against KT in Jamsil.

Doosan was tied 0-0 with NC in the top of the fourth inning. Against all odds, Choi Seung-yong put on a masterful pitching performance against NC ace Eric Peddy, but was unable to complete the game due to an unexpected injury.
