KT Wiz, of course. Bad news also came to Korean baseball ahead of the Hangzhou Asian Games in September. The news of the departure of pitcher So Joon So-jun was delivered.

Joon Sohn is scheduled to undergo Tommy John (elbow ligament joint) surgery. It’s actually out of season. The rehabilitation period alone takes from one year to a maximum of one and a half years. He is expected to return only in the second half of next year.
Joon Sohn is suffering from an injury. On the 4th of last month, Sohn So-jun, who was already on the injured list due to a sprained right forearm muscle, had a recovery period of about a month before returning to Incheon SSG Landers on the 3rd. He wasn’t bad, giving up 1 run in 5 innings.
On the 10th, he started against the Suwon NC Dinos. However, he gave up 4 runs in 3.2 innings and withdrew. He showed discomfort in his arm while continuing to pitch. He voluntarily grated.
He underwent an overhaul and had to accept the dismal results of a ruptured collateral ligament on the medial side of his right elbow. He ended the season with an ERA of 11.45 without a win or loss in three games this season.
Joon Sohn, who opened the professional stage as KT’s first charge in 2020, recorded an average ERA of 3.86 with 13 wins and 6 losses in 26 games in his debut season. He made a splendid debut by receiving the Rookie of the Year award. He was 33-19 with a 3.81 ERA in 80 career games. He was also active as a KT main axis selection and was selected as a national representative, adding strength to Korean baseball. He was expected to be selected as he was included in the preliminary entry for the Hangzhou Asian Games scheduled to be held in September, but this surgery made it difficult to participate.
A KT official said, “We plan to check it once more. Rehabilitation or surgery schedules will be discussed after the examination.”
How will KT, who is suffering from injuries this season, overcome this crisis? Bae Seong and Lee Jung-hyun are being discussed as replacements for So Joon So.
