A major bad news broke out for the Yomiuri Giants of the Japanese professional baseball league.
This is because Nataka Sho (34), who was leading the home run, suffered a serious injury while running base.
Nakata suffered a muscle tear while running to second base in a match against the Yakult Swallows held at the Tokyo Dome on the 4th.
As a result of examination at a hospital in the province on the 4th, it was diagnosed that the muscle on the back of the right thigh was torn. From the 5th, he joins the rehabilitation group right away.
In the bottom of the second inning, after hitting a double that landed on the left field, he ran to second base and slid to second base as if he fell.
Nakata called time and called the coaches.
He chatted for a while, then lent head coach Abe’s shoulder and headed for the dugout with a limp. Okoe was appointed as the main runner.
In place of Nakata, outfielder Takayuki Kajitani (34) was promoted.
Nakata, who mainly played 5 times, maintained a good performance with a batting average of 0.301 in 28 games, 7 home runs, which was the sole leader in the league, and 15 RBIs, which was tied for 3rd.
He has been the RBI champion, but he has never been the home run king. He saw this year as a very good opportunity. This is because he has a good personal pace and uses the small Tokyo Dome as his home stadium.
However, his muscle damage is an injury that will inevitably leave a gap for at least 2 months and up to 3 months. He was put in the position of having to spend a significant portion of the season missing.
If Nakata leaves, Yomiuri will be unable to avoid a large power vacuum. It can also be a burden to raise the ranking that has been hit by the bottom.
Yomiuri is in 4th place with 13 wins and 15 losses. However, since there is only a 0.5 game gap with Hiroshima in 3rd place, Class A (3rd or higher) is in sight.먹튀검증
In particular, Yomiuri is a team with 30 homers, the most in the Central League. About 1/3 of them were solved by Nakata.
He is playing baseball that turns the tide of the game with the power of a home run. However, one of the central shafts collapsed.
When will Nakata come back? He wonders if he will be out of power for three months or so like the displacement period.
After escaping from the worst crisis, Yomiuri, which was on the rise little by little, had a truly super-sized bad news.
