“It didn’t feel good when it happened, but it got better over time” Major injury damage

After injuring his shoulder during a home sweep, San Diego Padres pitcher Ha-Sung Kim was fortunate to avoid a major injury.

According to Kevin Ace of the San Diego Union-Tribune, San Diego manager Bob Melvin said, “He’s got a little bit of a tightness in his shoulder. We’ll check his status every day.”

He is not expected to play the next day against the Colorado Rockies on April 1.

Kim started the day at first base against the Texas Rangers, batting second, and reached base on an infield single in the third inning.

After a Juan Soto walk, Manny Machado singled to right, stole second and advanced to third on a Xander Bogaerts sacrifice fly to center field, but as he was sliding home, he bumped his shoulder into catcher Sam Huff’s knee.

The run was allowed to score, but Kim, who was holding his right shoulder and complaining of pain, was immediately removed in the top of the fourth inning.

Kim has been hitting like a champ lately.

In his last 16 games, he is batting .379 (22-for-58) with four home runs, eight RBIs and five doubles. Against Texas, he went 1-for-1 with a double, a walk and a run scored, extending his hitting streak to six games.

Just as he was picking up the pace, an injury nearly halted him, but he escaped serious harm.

Kim also spoke to local media and said he was feeling fine.

In an interview posted on Twitter by Marty Caswell of local San Diego radio station San Diego Sports 760, Kim said, “It was bad when I crashed, but as time went on, it got better. We’ll have to see how it is tomorrow,” he said.

“As I was sliding, the catcher blocked it with his knee, and even if it was an out (at home), it would have been safe because of the video review,” he explained.

It was a dizzying moment, but a medical examination revealed no problems. “There’s nothing wrong with the bone,” Kim said, adding, “It could be better tomorrow, or it could be worse. We have to see how it is tomorrow,” he said.

However, he did not hide his desire to play: “I’ll see how it is tomorrow and if it’s okay, I’ll play right away. 토토사이트 I’ll be back in the lineup as soon as possible,” he said.
