NC Dinos’ best hit product infielder Seo Ho-cheol (27) returned from injury.
Seo Ho-cheol was registered as an entry prior to the 11th game of the season against Doosan held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium on the 18th. He returned in 12 days after missing the last 6 days due to a finger injury. He cut the rehabilitation period, which was scheduled for three weeks, by almost half.안전놀이터
After attempting a surprise bunt in the bottom of the third inning in a home game against the Kiwoom Heroes on the 5th, Seo Ho-cheol injured his left little finger while trying to slide head-first from second base while opposing pitcher Jae-young Jang’s throw to first base fell back.
He was replaced by Do Tae-hun during the defense in the 4th inning and dropped out of the game, and the next day he was expelled from the first team entry.
On the 7th, he was diagnosed with a torn ligament in his left little finger.
Seo Ho-cheol joined the rehabilitation group on the 8th with a plan to receive rehabilitation treatment for 3 weeks. However, in just ten days he made a superhuman recovery. He joined the Futures League from the 16th. He played in 2 Futures League games against SSG and got 2 hits in 3 at-bats including a double on the 17th, and was called up the next day, on the 18th. NC coach Kang In-kwon explained at the briefing that day, “I originally thought it would take about 20 days from 15 days, but he recovered quickly.
On the 15th, infielder Oh Young-soo, who was called up after two and a half months, was canceled. Oh Young-soo picked up two walks in three games after the call-up, but did not record a hit. He went 0-for-6 with a 1.99 batting average for the season and went back down to the Futures League.
Seo Ho-cheol played a big role with a batting average of 0.301, 2 homers, 30 RBIs and 4 steals in 77 games this season with accurate contact skills.
He is a player who is a great help to the team in offense and defense, going back and forth between third base and second base after Noh Jin-hyeok left, by showing off the potential of the Futures League batting champion this season. His indomitable will shortened his rehabilitation period and minimized his first-team hiatus.
Every thousand troops who will add great strength to NC, which is in a fierce battle for the top 5.
Seo Ho-cheol was scheduled to start as a 3rd baseman in No. 5 against Doosan on the day before his comeback, but it was canceled due to rain due to an intensive localized pitching for an hour from 30 minutes before the start of the game, so he had to take another day off.
