Young big man Noh Si-hwan (23) of the Hanwha Eagles will be out for at least three weeks due to a shoulder injury.

The Hanwha club announced on the 8th that “Noh Si-hwan underwent two medical examinations on the 6th and 8th, and was diagnosed with ‘pain due to damage to the posterior inferior glenohumeral joint labrum in the left shoulder area,'” adding, “Overall, there is a lot of inflammation in the joint, and it is expected to take at least three weeks to return.”

Noh participated normally in the home run derby on the eve of the All-Star Game at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on May 5.

However, he later felt shoulder pain and was unable to participate in the All-Star Game on June 6.

With the diagnosis that it would take more than three weeks to return, Han’s worries grew as he began the second half of the season on Sept. 9.

Hanwha had already removed Noh from the first team roster on the 8th and designated Kim Kang-min for assignment.

Noh led the league in home runs (31) and RBIs (101) last year.

His first-half stats this year are .267 with 18 home runs and 60 RBIs in 82 games.

Hanwha was handed a tough task at the start of the second half, having to endure more than three weeks without Noh Si-hwan, their top third baseman with long-range power. 메이저놀이터
