It was too short for Lee Junghoo

Lee Jung-hoo (San Francisco Giants), who seriously injured his shoulder while defending on the 13th, was eventually judged to be out of the season after surgery.

“Lee Jung-hoo met Dr. Neal Elatrache in Los Angeles, the U.S., and was recommended for shoulder surgery,” the club said on the 18th (Korea time). “Lee will undergo surgery on his left shoulder joint in a few weeks. He will not be on the ground in 2024.”
“Lee will undergo rehabilitation for six months. It is difficult to play this season, but medical staff said they could recover completely,” said Farhan Zaidi, president of the baseball division. He hoped that Lee would return in 2025 without suffering aftereffects of injury.

Dr. Elatrache is a well-known name in the American sports world. Many sports stars around the world, as well as MLB, entrust Dr. Elatrache to operate.

In particular, when Ryu Hyun-jin (37, Hanwha Eagles) played in the Major League, he was in charge of shoulder joint surgery (2015), elbow necrotic tissue removal (2016), and Tommy John surgery (2022).토토사이트먹튀

Also last year, superstar Shohei Ohtani (Los Angeles Dodgers) underwent elbow surgery.

Lee Jung-hoo, who will soon schedule a surgery and start rehabilitation, said in an interview with local reporters including The Athletic, “The past month and a half of playing in MLB is the most unforgettable time in my baseball life.”

Lee Jung-hoo, who entered the Major League after signing a six-year contract with San Francisco at the end of last year through a posting system (closed competitive bidding), posted a batting average of 0.262 38 hits, two homers, eight RBIs, 15 runs and a 0.31 slugging percentage in 37 games this season.
