After going hitless in 11 at-bats with SD, Choi fractures ankle in Triple-A

Ji-Man Choi, 32, San Diego Padres, suffered an ankle injury in a minor league Triple-A game.

Annie Heilbrunn of the San Diego Union-Tribune first reported the news on social media on July 7, saying, “Manager Bob Melvin said Choi suffered a fractured ankle yesterday at Triple-A. Choi had been undergoing a rehabilitation procedure after being placed on the disabled list with a left rib cage sprain on March 15. He reportedly started a Triple-A schedule on June 6 to check his health, but the ankle injury could mean a longer recovery.카지노사이트

Choi was acquired from the Pittsburgh Pirates in a trade on February 2. He appeared in seven games for San Diego, going hitless in 11 at-bats. In 16 at-bats, he drew five walks (three strikeouts) for a .313 on-base percentage. His performance on and off the field was less than stellar, as he was repeatedly injured in falls. The Dodgers even confirmed a wrist injury to catcher Gary Sanchez, leaving a huge hole in their lineup. “It’s heartbreaking,” Melvin said.

Choi is in his eighth year in the major leagues. He is batting .236 (1547-for-365) with 67 home runs and 236 RBIs. This season, he’s batting .205 (15-for-73) with Pittsburgh. If you add in his San Diego performance, his season batting average drops to .179.
