Ji-Man Choi, who moved to the Pittsburgh Pirates, seems to be still in the process of adapting to the new team.
Choi Ji-man started as first baseman 4 times in an exhibition game against the New York Yankees in the 2023 Major League Baseball held at George M. Steinbrenner Field in Tampa, Florida on the 7th (Korean time).
He took his first at-bat in the top of the second inning and faced Domingo Hermann, but was struck out. In the top of the fourth, he struck out once again on a swing off Jimmy Cordero.
Choi Ji-man, who played until the 7th inning, faced Yondris Gomez and sent a well-hit ball to the right fielder. However, opposing right fielder Everson Pereira played a good defense, and the game ended without a hit.
Choi Ji-man even made an unfortunate mistake. In the bottom of the 6th inning, with one out and bases loaded, Jason Dominguez’s batted ball was caught well, but a bad throw came out and two runners came home. He was then replaced by Chavez Young with the start of the bottom of the seventh inning.메이저놀이터
