More bad news for the NC Dinos, as veteran infielder Park Min-woo is sidelined with an injury.

The Korean Baseball Organization (KBO) announced its first-team roster changes on Tuesday, a day without a professional baseball game.

The most notable of these is the removal of Park Min-woo from the first team.

Park, who was selected with the ninth overall pick in the 2012 First-Year Player Draft by the then-new NC, was a franchise star who played exclusively for NC until this year. In 1038 career games through last year, Park is batting .320 with 392 RBI and 217 stolen bases.
This season, he has also been an integral part of the NC offense, batting .311 (73-for-235) with one home run, 24 RBI, 34 runs scored and 15 stolen bases in 63 games.

In a phone conversation with reporters on the same day, an NC official explained Park’s first-team deletion, saying, “He was deleted due to discomfort in his right shoulder.” “He will focus on treatment and recovery to return in the second half of the season.”

Park Min-woo’s departure is particularly painful for NC. NC has been in a slump with a string of injuries to their starting lineup, going 1-4 in their last five games. On top of that, veteran outfielder Park Gun-woo, who has recently been accused of acting out of the One-Team mentality, has been dropped from the first team roster, leaving the batting order loose. 메이저놀이터

In addition to Park Min-woo, the NC also removed starting right-handers Lee Yong-jun and Song Myung-gi from the roster. The three players will be called up to fill the void ahead of the series against the Lotte Giants, the final three-game series of the first half of the season, which begins on April 11 at Changwon NC Park.

Meanwhile, SSG Landers foreign hitter Guillermo Heredia will briefly fly to the United States for personal reasons. He will be away for an interview for US citizenship and is expected to return in the second half of the season. Fellow veteran infielder Choi Jeong-jeong was diagnosed with a torn pubis muscle in his left leg, ending his first half early.

In addition, foreign pitchers Felix Peña (Hanwha Eagles), Dan Streeley (Lotte Giants), Albert Suarez (Samsung Lions), and Mario Sanchez (KIA Tigers), who have completed their pitching schedules, were also dropped from the first team roster.
