Hanwha foreign hitter Brian O’Grady (31), who fell into an extreme batting slump, was replaced due to back pain.  

In the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League home game against Doosan held at Hanwha Life Insurance Eagles Park in Daejeon on the 20th, O’Gredi started as a left fielder with the 5th hitter, recorded no hits in 2 at bats, and was replaced by Moon Hyun-bin ahead of the 6th defense. 스포츠토토

It was because of back pain while swinging in the 5th inning at bat. Doosan starting pitcher Raul Alcantara’s second pitch, high in the body, made a big miss, then bent down and complained of discomfort. The trainer came out for a while to check the condition, but was not replaced. 

However, Alcantara’s next ball turned the bat and struck out on three pitches, and the replacement was decided after talking with manager Carlos Subero in the dugout. The Hanwha team said that O’Grady was replaced for protection because he felt tight in the back of his left waist.

O’Grady also retired with a fly ball to right field in the first at-bat in the second inning. O’Gredi, who recorded no hits in 2 at-bats on this day, fell silent in 13 at-bats in the last 4 games since the match against Suwon KT on the 16th. His last hit was a double on the right in the first at-bat in the first inning against Suwon KT on the 15th, and since then he has been hitless for 15 consecutive at-bats. 

O’Grady has shown an extremely poor performance with a batting average of 10.36 (8 hits in 59 at-bats), no home runs, 8 RBIs, 4 walks and 28 strikeouts in 15 games of the season. To make matters worse, he even causes back pain, and the ordeal is deepening. /waw@osen.co.kr
