Kim Hae-Sung ‘hit directly by a foul ball while batting’, gets sidelined…leads to long-term injury

San Diego Padres’ Ha-Sung Kim, 28, was injured after being hit by a pitch while at bat.

Kim was batting seventh and playing third base against the Washington Nationals at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C., on Saturday.

In the top of the second inning, Kim led off with a single and hit a 93.8-mph (151.0-kilometer) sinker from Washington starter Jake Irvin. The pitch, which was fouled off, struck Kim directly in the left knee and he went down immediately. The pain continued as time passed, and Kim was eventually helped off the field and replaced by Brandon Dixon, who finished the game.

According to MLB.com, “After being hit by a foul ball, Kim fell to the ground in excruciating pain. He had to be helped off the field by two team trainers. The team did not immediately provide an update on his condition.”

“It’s been a rough couple of weeks for the San Diego infield,” MLB.com noted, “Ten days ago, Manny Machado suffered a fractured left hand. He has begun throwing skills, but is still on the disabled list. Ha Sung Kim has been playing third base since Machado’s departure,” explaining San Diego’s recent injury woes.

MLB.com reports, “If Machado doesn’t return, the Padres will have to call up a new infielder. Manager Bob Melvin said it’s unlikely Machado will be back in time,” suggesting that Kim’s injury could be prolonged. If Kim can’t play right away, San Diego could call up Matthew Batten, Jose Iglesias, Tim Lopez, and Alfonso Rivas, among others. 토토사이트
