At the time, a KT official said, “Player Eom Sang-baek was diagnosed with a microfracture of his 8th rib as a result of MRI and This situation requires rest. The condition will be monitored and a re-examination will be scheduled at a later date. “We anticipate that it will take approximately four weeks for him to return.”
Eom Sang-baek felt so much pain that he couldn’t sleep. Her previous check-up showed no problems. Although she was in pain, she took pictures and found nothing abnormal. So she put up with it even though it hurt her.
In the end, he was expunged from the first team entry on August 24, and the 2023 season ended as well. Eom Sang-baek’s record this season is 7 wins, 6 losses, and an average ERA of 3.63 in 20 games. In particular, his departure was even more disappointing because he was continuing a good trend in the second half of the season with 4 wins, 0 losses, and an average ERA of 3.29 in 6 games.
Eom Sang-baek, who had improved his condition by getting enough rest, went on the mound at KT Wiz Park on the 18th. As KT advanced to the postseason in second place, he had to put the disappointment of the regular season behind him and prepare for fall baseball.
Eom Sang-baek performed his first live pitching since his return. He threw about 30 pitches. He tested various pitches, including fastballs, sliders, and changeups, and his highest velocity reached 142km. He felt no pain after throwing.
Eom Sang-baek said, “It hasn’t been 100% since it’s been a while since he threw, but he focused on putting the ball inside the strike zone. It was good that he was able to check a variety of breaking balls. He said, “I am satisfied because there is no pain or awkwardness in pitching.”
On this day, Kang Baek-ho, Cho Yong-ho, Park Byeong-ho, and Anthony Alford (registered name Alford) stood at bat. Everyone was surprised.
Alford said, “I’ve never played against him since we’re on the same team, but I felt his changeup was really good,” and Park Byeong-ho said, “Eom Sang-baek was really good.” “He’s good at the ball, and I think he’ll be a big hidden card for fall baseball.”KT coach Lee Kang-cheol also said, “They said everything was similar to before I got sick. “I think I just need to increase my speed a little more,” he said. “First of all, the best thing is that it doesn’t hurt. Also, because I rested a lot, my ball has strength.”
