“It is a bruise, not a fracture, and if no other problems are found, he will play a rehabilitation game again,” Choi’s Korean management company said on July 7.

Choi was placed on the injured list (IL) on March 15 after being diagnosed with a left rib sprain, and was activated on March 6 after completing treatment. Choi appeared in a Triple-A game for the El Paso Chihuahuas at Southwest University Park in El Paso, Texas. In a home game against the Round Rock Express (affiliated with the Texas Rangers), Choi started at third base and went 2-for-3 with a walk. During the game, he was hit in the foot by a pitch, which local media reported as a fracture. However, a hospital examination revealed that it was a bruise, not a fracture, and he is expected to return to the big leagues later this season.

Choi started the season with the Pittsburgh Pirates and was placed on the IL on April 16 after injuring his Achilles. After returning to the big leagues on July 8, Choi was traded to San Diego on August 2.
