The 5th-ranked NC Dinos will be without Park Min-woo (30) for the final three games of the first half.
NC removed Park Min-woo from the first team roster on the 10th, the day of the move. A club official said, “He has discomfort in his right shoulder. We will focus on treatment and recovery.” Park’s shoulder has been bothering him all season. In recent games, he played through the pain, but eventually decided that he needed to rest.스포츠토토
Park appeared in 63 games before being designated for assignment, batting .311 (73-for-235) with one home run and 24 RBIs. His on-base percentage (0.376) and slugging percentage (0.374) combined for an OPS of 0.750. His batting average with runners in scoring position was 0.309. He was one of three NC hitters to maintain a “triple-digit batting average in regulation” along with Seo Ho-chul (0.316) and Son Ah-seob (0.314). He was primarily responsible for opening up the offense in the top of the order.
NC was in a bit of a slump. NC has an ‘underwhelming’ 0.218 team batting average in July, last in the league. The gap between them and the ninth-place KT Wiz (0.255) is more than three points. The team’s batting lineup has become even more disjointed in the past three days, as starting outfielder Park Gun-woo was removed from the first team due to off-field issues, followed by Park Min-woo.
Coincidentally, NC has a winning percentage of 0.143 (2-12) since the 21st of last month. They dropped two straight games against the Samsung Lions at home last weekend, dropping their season record to just five wins (37 wins, one draw, 38 losses). They are one game behind the sixth-place KIA Tigers (35 wins, one draw, 38 losses), so they will have their work cut out for them in their final home three-game series of the first half against the Lotte Giants.
Meanwhile, NC also removed starting pitchers Song Myung-ki and Lee Yong-jun from the first team roster after completing all of their first-half appearances. Across the KBO, Heredia, Choi Jeong-jeong and Oh Won-seok (SSG Landers), Park Joo-hong, Lee Jong-min and Jeong Chan-heon (Kiwoom Heroes), Sanchez (KIA), Suarez (Samsung), Strillie (Lotte), Choi Won-joon (Doosan Bears) and Lee Min-joon and Peña (Hanwha Eagles) were expunged from the first team. The clubs will fill the vacancies in their rosters before the 11th game.
