Juan Soto replaced during practice due to oblique injury

San Diego Padres outfielder Juan Soto’s preparation for the season is not smooth.

Local media, such as the 온라인카지노 ‘San Diego Union-Tribune’, cited the club’s announcement on the 20th (Korean time) and reported that Soto suffered a minor sprain injury to his left oblique muscle.

Soto played a practice game at the club’s training ground, the Peoria Sports Complex, and was replaced earlier than planned because he felt an abnormality in his oblique muscles.

The club said that this replacement is a ‘caution level’ replacement and that it is a situation where you have to see the condition every day.

It is said to be a minor injury, but the timing is not good. This is because preparations for the season could be disrupted with less than two weeks left before the start of the season.

Soto suffered from a calf injury early in camp. The injury also delayed joining the Dominican Republic national team.

Hit feel is good. He went 8-for-14 with 3 doubles, 3 home runs and a walk in exhibition games, and also went 6-for-15 with 3 doubles, 2 home runs and 3 walks in the WBC.

Oblique muscle injuries are a common injury in baseball players. Depending on the severity of the injury, he may be out for several days to several months.

The San Diego Union-Tribune, citing a Padres source, said the team was taking a “careful” approach to his fitness.

Soto, who joined San Diego through a trade during last season, recorded a batting average of 0.236, on-base percentage of 0.388, and slugging percentage of 0.390 in 52 games after the transfer. He played in right field and plans to move to left field in the 2023 season.
