Pittsburgh Pirates’ Bae Ji-hwan is on track to return after being sidelined with an ankle injury.
카지노Pittsburgh’s Director of Sports Medicine Todd Tomczyk gave a briefing to local media, including the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, ahead of the team’s home game against the Cleveland Cavaliers on the 20th (KST), on the status of Bae, who was sidelined with an ankle injury.
According to the report, Bae is taking part in defensive drills and playing catch with other players such as O’Neal Cruz and Kee Bryan Hayes.
Bae, who has been playing with an ankle injury, was placed on the disabled list after aggravating the injury while running to first base after a hit during a home game against the Milwaukee Brewers on the 2nd.
Tomczyk said the injury was ligament-related, adding that Bae is expected to miss the Angels’ six-game West Coast trip to San Diego. He will then play a rehab game if he is cleared to play.
Cruz, who has been working out with Bae, has increased his catching distance to 120 feet and has begun simulated hitting in the weight room. He is getting closer to resuming batting practice.
Hayes, who has been sidelined with a back injury, will continue to work out over the weekend. “Overall, he’s making progress,” Tomchik said.
Left-hander Harlin Garcia, whose rehabilitation from a nerve injury in his left arm has been slow, is finally starting to catch balls. He’s been playing catch for about two to three weeks, Tomchik said. However, he has yet to take part in a full training session, so the timetable for his return is unclear.
