The Pittsburgh club announced on the 3rd (Korean time) that Bae Ji-hwan was placed on the 10-day injured list due to a sprained left ankle.

Previously, Bae Ji-hwan started as second baseman eight times in the game against the Milwaukee Brewers on the 2nd, hit a ground ball in the second base in the 8th inning, and felt ankle pain while running to first base.

It is the first time Bae Ji-hwan has been on the injured list since his major league debut in September last year. He took only a short break when he injured his left ankle in early May.

Pittsburgh’s first half ends on the 10th. As a result, Bae Ji-hwan cannot return within the first half. If his injury isn’t major, he could come back with the start of the second half.

Dan Bae Ji-hwan is currently suffering from poor grades. In 76 games in the first half, he has a batting average of 0.238, 2 home runs and 19 RBIs, and an on-base percentage of 0.301 and an OPS of 0.609.

In particular, last month, he recorded a batting average of 0.159, an on-base percentage of 0.236, and an OPS of 0.411. Accordingly, the possibility of going to the minor leagues was even mentioned.
