“Elbow ligament 70-80% damaged” Kiwoom Jang Jae-young, rehabilitation instead of surgery

Kiwoom pitcher Jang Jae-young training in Taiwan.

Jae-young Jang (21), a 4-year professional pitcher who joined the Kiwoom Heroes for 900 million won, the second-highest signing bonus in professional baseball history, opted for rehabilitation instead of surgery despite being diagnosed with a ruptured elbow ligament.

Kiwoom coach Hong Won-ki said ahead of the Doosan Bears game held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 7th, “I think Jang Jae-young, who is one of the best players on our team when it comes to exercise, reported this unfortunate injury news, perhaps because of his impatience for the results.” “I decided not to do it, so I think I need to pay a lot of attention to rehabilitation,” he said.

Jang Jae-young, who drew attention as a next-generation ace by throwing a fastball well over 150 km/h with a solid physique of 187 cm tall and 83 kg weight, failed to achieve remarkable results after joining the team due to chronic control problems.

Until last year, he had a total of 1 win, 6 losses, and an ERA of 6.45 over the three seasons, and this year, he complained of elbow pain during spring camp, so he has been training in the Futures (2nd team) league.

After completing rehabilitation, Jaeyoung Jang took the mound in a game against the Samsung Lions on the 1st, but faced 3 batters, gave up 2 walks and 1 hit to the body, and was replaced.

Immediately after the replacement, he complained of numbness in his right hand, and upon examination, it was determined that his right elbow ligaments were damaged and surgery was needed.

Director Hong explained, “The results showed that the ligaments were damaged by about 70 to 80 percent. He said he had no symptoms of elbow pain or numbness in his fingers, so we decided to pursue rehabilitation rather than surgery.”

No matter how good rehabilitation is, it cannot fundamentally solve the problem, so these cases usually end up on the operating table. 스포츠 토토사이트

However, Jang Jae-young chose rehabilitation even though he did not know when problems would arise again.

Director Hong said, “If you have surgery, more than a year will be lost. I think Jang Jae-young must have been very motivated (by choosing rehabilitation instead of surgery) because he has nothing to show yet.”

Jang Jae-young also made a name for himself as a slugger when he was a student at Deoksu High School.

When asked about the possibility of him playing as a hitter, Coach Hong refrained from commenting further, saying, “I don’t know about that. For now, I can only say that I will not have surgery and will focus on rehabilitation.” 성인웹툰
