San Diego Choi Ji-man Injured During Rehabilitation Game... “Simple Bruise, Not Fracture”

American media also mentioned 'season out', but management confirmed 'bruise'

Choi Ji-man (32, San Diego Padres) was injured again while undergoing rehabilitation, the final step toward returning to the major leagues.

Originally, it was an 'instep bruise' rather than an 'ankle fracture' as reported by local American media, so the path to a return to the big leagues within this season is open. 

Choi Ji-man's domestic management company said in a phone call on the 7th, "Choi Ji-man suffered a bruise, not a fracture.

He will receive treatment, but if no other problems are found, he will play again in rehabilitation."

On this day, local media such as the San Diego Union-Tribune and quoted San Diego coach Bob Melvin as saying, "Ji-man Choi injured his foot during a rehabilitation game."

There were also media reports that “he was diagnosed with a fractured ankle.” even raised the possibility of a ‘season out’.

Choi Ji-man avoided a fracture and is preparing to return to the big leagues.

Ji-Man Choi stood at bat wearing an El Paso Chihuahuas uniform in the 2023 American Professional Baseball Minor League Triple A game held the day before at Southwest University Park in El Paso, Texas.

It was his first actual game after being diagnosed with a left rib sprain on the 15th of last month and being placed on the injured list (IL).

Ji-Man Choi started as the designated hitter at number 3 in the home game against the Round Rock Express (Texas Rangers) and hit 2 hits in 3 at-bats.

He received a detailed examination after hitting his foot with a batted ball during the game, but it appears that treatment for his foot will not take a long time.

Choi Ji-man, who opened this season wearing the Pittsburgh Pirates uniform, was placed on the IL on April 16 due to an Achilles injury.

Choi Ji-man, who returned to the big league on July 8, was traded to San Diego on August 2.

In his 
San Diego uniform, he went 0-for-11 and had yet to report a hit before being forced out of the lineup due to a fractured rib.

During his rehabilitation game, there was also the unfortunate news that he was hit in the foot by a batted ball.

Choi Ji-man's big league performance this season is a batting average of 0.179 (15 hits in 84 at-bats), 6 home runs, and 11 RBI.

Choi Ji-man plans to participate in rehabilitation games again once he is relieved of his foot pain.
