Pittsburgh, special treatment for Choi Ji-man with ‘elbow surgery’…Customized program prepared

The Pittsburgh Pirates prepared a customized training program for Choi Ji-man, who underwent an elbow bone fragment removal surgery last November. This is a part where you can know the expectations placed on Choi Ji-man at the club. 

The American sports media ‘CBS Sports’ said on the 23rd (Korean time), “Pittsburgh plans to digest a customized program until Choi Ji-man (who had surgery to remove a bone fragment in his right elbow) fully recovers.” There’s a high chance he won’t be able to play.” 

The club prepared a customized program for Choi Ji-man, not because there was a problem with his recovery, but because he decided that it was better to recover in time for the opening of the regular season.  토토사이트

The media said, “There is no problem with Choi Ji-man’s rehabilitation process. The club also took care of Choi Ji-man to prepare for the season in normal condition.” The club explains that even if he is unable to play in the first week of the demonstration game, he can improve his sense of practice by participating in subsequent matches. 

Choi Ji-man underwent surgery to remove bone fragments in his right elbow in November of last year, and has been steadily undergoing rehabilitation. He was named in the reserve roster for the WBC Korean national team led by coach Kang-Cheol Lee, and showed a strong will to join the national team. 

However, Pittsburgh expressed its intention to oppose participation in the WBC, citing Choi Ji-man’s surgery history to the WBC Organizing Committee. Accordingly, the WBC organizing committee held an injury review committee to review whether or not to allow Choi Ji-man to participate in the WBC, and notified the KBO of Choi’s decision not to participate. 

Unfortunately, Choi Ji-man, who failed to qualify for the WBC Korean national team, is working hard on his new team. It is an important year for me personally as I will be eligible for free agency after this season.
