Choi Seung-yong started the 11th game of the season against NC in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 19th, and was replaced by Kim Myung-shin while fighting hard with 2⅔ innings, 1 hit, 1 hit, 2 strikeouts and no runs.
Choi Seung-yong treated center fielder Joong-yeol Ahn with one out and first base in the 3rd inning with a score of 0-0, then looked at his fingers and signaled to the bench. Trainer and pitching coach Kwon Myung-cheol climbed the mound, and after checking the condition of the fingers, the pitcher was replaced by Kim Myung-shin.
The reason for the replacement was blisters. A Doosan official explained, “Choi Seung-yong was replaced because a blister came off on his left middle finger.”
Kim Myung-shin, who was hurriedly replaced, was hit with a heavy hit by Son Ah-seop, the first batter, and faced a crisis with 2 outs on 1st and 2nd base, but Park Min-woo took a straight hit to the shortstop and ended the inning. It was the moment when Choi Seung-yong’s successor was erased.
Meanwhile, along with Choi Seung-yong’s injury, center fielder Jeong Su-bin also complained of pain in his left thigh after catching An Joong-yeol’s batted ball, and was checked by a trainer. Fortunately, he remained on the ground and finished the inning normally, but after the third inning, he was replaced with runner Jo Su-haeng after the fielder selection on base. Su-bin Su suffered an injury in the game against KT Jamsil on the 15th when he was hit in the thigh by a pitch from William Cuevas.
Doosan is facing the NC 0-0 at the beginning of the 4th inning. Unexpectedly, Choi Seung-yong had a great pitching battle with NC ace Eric Peddy, but was unable to complete the game due to an unexpected injury.
