Since the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC), Na Seong-beom, who had a bad calf condition, could not participate in the demonstration game and could not board the opening entry.
He was not expected to be seriously injured, but as a result of a close examination, it was diagnosed that his left calf muscle was damaged, making his long-term departure inevitable. Earlier this month, an inspection revealed that it would take about eight weeks for his return.
Kim Do-young sprained his left ankle while stepping on third base during a run against SSG Landers in Incheon on the 2nd. A hospital overhaul diagnosed his right metatarsal (little toe) fracture and is expected to be out for up to 4 months.
With Na Seong-beom, the main player, and Kim Do-young, who was noticed as a key player this season, both missing, KIA continues to be frustrated in the attack. He is in 9th place with a batting average of 0.194 and 9th with 4 team homers.
Na Seong-beom and Kim Do-young plan to adjust their return schedule according to their physical condition after returning to Korea.
