The return date of Lotte foreign hitter Nico Goodrum, who was recently sidelined due to an injury, has not yet been determined.
Lotte acting manager Lee Jong-woon said on the 14th, “I think I should go to Busan and see Gudrum.”
Goodrum recently underwent a hospital check-up due to thigh muscle pain. He is in a state of rest for now.
Acting manager Lee Jong-woon had a separate personal meeting with Gudrum before leaving for the Gwangju expedition. Acting Director Lee said, “He said he didn’t want to overdo it. “He only said that he wanted to prepare well,” he said.
There were no special abnormalities in the hospital examination. However, since the player is complaining of pain, the team cannot force him to play.
Acting Director Lee said, “They said I would get better after getting tested at the hospital and resting for a week. However, I am not in a position where I can only look at that player. “It is not a situation where he can force a player who is not in good health,” he explained.
For the time being, Lotte will have to play the game without a foreign hitter. Acting manager Lee said, “I think another player will take that position again.”토토사이트
Goodrum, who wore a Lotte uniform as a replacement for existing foreign hitter Jack Rex, is recording a batting average of 0.263 and 20 RBIs in 36 games. In the 55 games before Rex was replaced, he had a batting average of 0.246 and 4 home runs, but Gudrum’s performance was not much different from this, leaving something to be desired.
For Lotte, which continues to have slim hopes of making it to the top 5, foreign batters have caused new worries.
Meanwhile, Lotte had a day off as the game against KIA, which was scheduled to be held at Gwangju Stadium on this day, was canceled due to rain.
