Texas Rangers starter Jacob deGrom was sidelined early with an injury. The details of the injury are also worrisome.
DeGrom suffered an injury while pitching in the 4th inning of a home game against the New York Yankees at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas on the 29th (hereafter Korean time).
Manager Bruce Bochy said in an interview with local media, including the ‘Dallas Morning News’ after the game, that deGrom went down the mound due to ‘forearm tension’.
It is mainly a symptom that occurs when there is something wrong with the elbow. The exact situation is still unknown. Bochy said the test will be conducted tomorrow and he will see the condition later.
DeGrom was fighting hard with 3 2/3 innings, 1 hit, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts and no runs until the injury battle that day. He tallied 50 pitches.
The average speed of the fastball was 98.8 miles, which was not much different from the season average (98.7 miles), but the speed of the fastball (96.6 miles) and slider (89.4 miles) thrown just before the break was slightly off.
Earlier, on April 18, against the Kansas City Royals, he went down the mound due to wrist pain after pitching 4 innings. After that, the schedule was normally digested without deviation, but the problem occurred again only after his second appearance. ㅋㅋㅋ벳
Considering his injury history, it is an injury that cannot be taken lightly. Previously, in the 2021 and 2022 seasons, he only threw 156 1/3 innings in 26 games due to elbow and shoulder problems.
In particular, in 2021, it was belatedly revealed that there was a problem with the medial collateral ligament of the elbow.
Texas, which gave him a five-year, $185 million contract ahead of this season, had to hold his breath and watch his condition.
Texas won 5-2. Dane Dunning, who took over the mound, became the winning pitcher, recording 3 hits, 1 strikeout and 2 runs in 3 1/3 innings.
