Bad news for KT… Submarine umbilical cord, microfracture in ribs diagnosed → 4 weeks to return to work

KT Wiz, which is on a fast track with a 0.786 winning percentage in the second half of the season (22-6), has suffered a setback. Submarine Uhm Sang-baek is sick.

On the 25th, a KT official said, “Uhm Sang-baek was diagnosed with a microfracture of the eighth rib after an MRI and X-ray at a hospital in Seoul today, and he needs to rest. We will monitor his condition and reexamine him later. We expect it to take about four weeks to return.”

Uhm made his first start on April 22 against the Suwon KIA Tigers. He gave up four runs on five hits (one home run) in 5.1 innings. He was later removed from the first team roster on the 24th due to soreness in his left lateral muscle.메이저사이트

On the 24th, KT manager Lee Kang-cheol said, “The pain wasn’t too bad when he was pitching, but the day before (23rd), the pain became so bad that he couldn’t sleep. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with his shoulder, so it’s good if he comes back after about 10 days of rest,” he said.

The first checkup was uneventful. I had a second opinion. I was hoping it wasn’t too bad, but it’s not a small injury that will keep me out for a month. He was already in a little bit of pain, but he threw through it.

In 20 games this season, Uhm has a 7-6 record with a 3.63 ERA. In the second half of the season, he went 4-0 with a 3.29 ERA in six games, adding a lot of strength to the KT mound.
