Choi Man-man, who was regaining his sense of hitting with a home run for two days in a row, ended up on the injured list after a continued absence.
The Pittsburgh Pirates announced on the 16th (Korean time) that Choi Ji-man was placed on the 10-day disabled list due to a left Achilles tendon sprain. The time of being listed on the injured list is retroactive to the 15th, and the 16th is the second day.

In the game on the 12th, he also hit his first multi-hit of the season, raising his batting average from 0.053 to 0.148. However, after a day off, he went 0-for-5 against St. Louis on the 14th, and was eventually placed on the injured list on the 16th.
Pittsburgh moved infielder Tucupita Marcano from Triple-A to the major league roster. Marcano had a batting average of 0.422 and an OPS of 1.147 with Pittsburgh’s Triple-A team Indianapolis.
With Choi Ji-man on the injured list, Pittsburgh defeated St. Louis. The two teams went into overtime at 3-3. In the top of the 10th inning, Andrew McCutchen, who came out as the lead hitter in the game, broke the balance with a two-run home run from left. After one shot, Connor Joe’s triple hit followed by Rodolfo Castro’s timely hit followed, leading to one more run.
Douri Moreta, who took the mound with a 3-point lead, walked the first batter, Dylan Carlson, and was in danger of getting first and second base safely, but Paul Goldschmidt, Nolan Arenado, and Nolan Gorman were all hit and saved.
