Kiwoom Heroes infielder Im Ji-yeol has returned to the field after two months. Lim will start at third base as the No. 8 hitter in the first game of a doubleheader (DH) against the Hanwha Eagles at the Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on 9 July. It will be his first appearance in nearly two months since July 12 against the KT Wiz .Im fractured his right thumb after being hit by a pitch from KT reliever Kim Jae-yoon in the bottom of the ninth inning of that game and was placed on the operating table .Outfielder Lim Byung-wook, who is not yet fully recovered, was called up to the first team sooner than expected after injuring his hamstring against the NC Dinos on the 7th.”He’s not at 100 per cent,” Kiwoom coach Hong Won-ki told reporters, adding, “It’s a bit early, but he’s an experienced player in the team and we called him up to the first team to reinforce our right-handed hitters. “Prior to his injury, Lim was batting .248 with four home runs and 25 RBIs in 56 games .It will be interesting to see if Lim can unblock Kiwoom, who have lost four in a row and slipped to the bottom of the league. Hong lamented a defensive lapse by starter Kim Sun-ki in the fifth inning after his side lost their fourth straight game in 12 extra innings to Hanwha the previous day .Kim induced Hanwha’s Lee Do-yoon to ground out to second base with runners on first and second in the bottom of the fifth inning with the score 2-1, but the ball slipped out of his glove as he made the catch after covering first base .In the meantime, Han scored the tying run, and in the ensuing at-bat, he was hit by a two-run double. “If it wasn’t for the mistake in the fifth inning, Kim would have had a 바카라사이트 long inning,” said Hong. It was unfortunate that he made the mistake.”
