“It’s a skill to get hurt”, but I was injured again, is a 19-year-old genius a glass body?

I was told to be careful of injuries…

The KIA Tigers met bad news in the early stages of the opening. Kim Do-yeong (20), a genius who was expected to make a great leap forward in karate-ju for the second year, was injured again. 

It was the second leg of the opening against SSG Landers on the 2nd. In the beginning of the 4th inning, leading 8-2, as a runner on second base, when Hwang Dae-in hit a double, he ran home and stepped on third base, resulting in a sprained left ankle. 스포츠토토

As a result of X-ray and CT scans at Incheon Gil Hospital, a fracture of the left 5th metatarsal bone (left instep) was diagnosed. On the 3rd, a detailed examination will be conducted again at Sejong Orthopedic Surgery Clinic in Seoul. The exact rehabilitation period comes after a detailed examination, but long-term departure is inevitable. 

Along with Park Chan-ho, he is a key resource to create chances as a table setter. His feet are quick and his striking ability has improved as well. It is a fatal injury and departure for the team.

He went through solid training at the Arizona and Okinawa spring camps and warmed up to the demonstration game to open in the best physical condition.

In Game 1, he got a hit in his first at-bat of the season against Gwang-Hyun Kim and even managed to steal a base. In the second game, he recorded 3 hits and showed off his good hitting feeling. Last year was sluggish, but this year was a sign that it would be different from last year. He broke away after just two games. 

It is only regret that I suffered an injury while doing my best. Kim Do-young’s injury is not the only one. Right after his nomination, he has been frequently injured. It is likely that he will be pointed out that he has a glass body even though he possesses genius skills.

On August 17 last year, while handling a batted ball as a third baseman in a game against SSG in Gwangju, he was hit by a ball and tore the palm of his right hand, requiring 10 stitches. He has been out of first team power for a month. 

After the season, he was scheduled to participate in the Australian League as a member of Geelong Korea, but at the end of the season, he was absent due to toe pain. He withdrew from participating to prevent a recurrence of his injury. 

He received the first pick in the rookie draft and participated in the finishing camp in the fall of 2021, but was unable to practice hitting and defense due to shoulder pain sustained during base running in a high school tournament. He could barely run.

He started the 2022 spring camp with great expectations as a rookie, but his face was not seen. Corona 19 caught my ankle and started training late. He was cited as the reason for the lackluster season last year. 

During the off-season, coach Kim Jong-guk said, “Doyoung gets hurt often. Injuries are also skills. You shouldn’t get hurt.” Even before the opening, I was most wary of injuries, but I was caught in an injury again. KIA has been shaken by the risk of Kim Do-young from the beginning of the opening. /sunny@osen.co.kr
