‘Discipline lifted’ Tatis Jr., before returning to MLB after 564 days… Kim Ha-seong also selected second baseman￼
Fernando Tatis Jr. (San Diego Padres)메이저사이트, whose suspension has been lifted, will return to the Major League (MLB) as the first hitter and right fielder. Kim Ha-seong was named in the starting lineup as the 7th hitter and second baseman.
San Diego will put Tatis Jr. as the leadoff in an away game against the Arizona Diamondbacks in the 2023 Major League, which will be held at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona, on the 21st (Korean time).
It is only 564 days since the game against the San Francisco Giants on October 4, 2021 that Tatis Jr. will play in a major league game.
Tatis Jr., who became the National League home run king in 2021, is a sign of San Diego, and signed a 14-year, $340 million contract ahead of the 2021 season.
However, Tatis Jr. had to take the entire season off last year. Prior to the Opening Day, he underwent wrist surgery, and was later suspended for 80 games by the Major League Secretariat after being caught taking a banned substance.
This punishment lasted until the beginning of this season, and was lifted after the Atlanta Braves match on the 20th. And San Diego started immediately after Tatis Jr., who had been released from disciplinary action.
San Diego, which has picked up just two points in its last four games, is pinning its hopes on Tatis Jr. “Having Tatis Jr. back in the lineup will help,” manager Bob Melvin said.
On this day, against Arizona, which is ranked first in the National League West, San Diego will put forward its best team members, including Tatis Jr., Juan Soto, Manny Machado, and Xander Bogatz. Kim Ha-seong also scrambles as the second baseman with the 7th batter. San Diego’s starting pitcher is Michael Wakka, who is recording 2-1 with an ERA of 6.06.
