Bae Ji-hwan (Pittsburgh Pirates), who was on the injured list at the end of the first half of the Major League Baseball due to an ankle injury, will begin full-scale rehabilitation in the minor leagues.
Bae Ji-hwan will start rehabilitation training with Triple A Indianapolis in the minor league early next week. He is expected to look at the pain trend and raise the sense of the game in the actual game.
In a game against the Milwaukee Brewers on the 2nd of this month, Bae Ji-hwan hit a ground ball on second base and felt ankle pain while running to first base.
When the pain broke out for the second time after last May, the Pittsburgh club put Bae Ji-hwan on the injured list.
Bae Ji-hwan played in 76 games this season, batting average of 0.238, recording two homers, 19 RBIs, and 20 stolen bases. He especially showed off his defensive talent as a second baseman and center fielder.
