‘Only two months in action’ Choi turns back the clock on Achilles injury

The clock is ticking for Ji-Man Choi (32-Pittsburgh Pirates).

Choi played second base in a game between the Double-A Altoona Curve (Pittsburgh’s affiliate) and the Bowie Baysox (Baltimore Orioles) at People’s Natural Gas Field in Altoona, Pennsylvania, USA, on 23 March. He ended up going 1-for-2 with a walk in his first action in a long time온라인카지노.

His first at-bat in the first inning was a double to centre field, showing a clean swing. His second at-bat in the third inning was a fly ball, and after a fielding error in the fifth inning, he was removed from the game in the sixth inning.

It was his first game since his injury. His last game was on 14 April against the St. Louis Cardinals. In that game, while running to first base after hitting a grounder, he suffered pain in his Achilles tendon in his left foot. The pain continued two days later against St. Louis, and he was placed on the disabled list. Upon further examination, he was given an eight-week rehab assignment. The worst case scenario of surgery was avoided, but his time in the big leagues was over.

After 70 days of treatment and rehabilitation, he finally made his return to the field. Speaking to MLB.com after the game, Choi said, “I was nervous and worried because it had been a long time. Fortunately, there were no problems. Overall, it was a pretty good game,” he said.

His appearance was also highlighted in the US. CBS Sports gave him a positive outlook, saying that he could return to the big leagues as soon as this month.

Choi came to Pittsburgh from the Tampa Bay Rays via trade last November. The team is in desperate need of support. They have lost 10 games in a row and are in the bottom half of the National League Central. At 34-40 on the season, their five-game winning streak is in tatters. They are now just 3.5 games behind last-place St. Louis.

Choi was batting .125 (4-for-32) with two home runs and two RBIs in nine games before his injury departure.
