‘248.1 billion glass body’ deGrom’s injured list, Korean pitcher fills the void

Texas Rangers pitcher Jacob DeGrop was placed on the injured list. 

MLB.com, the official homepage of Major League Baseball, said on the 30th (Korean time), “DeGrom was placed on the injured list on the 15th due to right elbow inflammation.” 

DeGrom complained of elbow pain during the 4th inning against the New York Yankees on the 29th and was knocked out early. DeGrom had a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examination the next day, which revealed inflammation in his elbow. 

Texas general manager Chris Young told MLB.com, “Fortunately, deGrom said he felt fine today.” He explained why he was put on the injured list. 

DeGrom was placed on the injured list for the first time this season. However, he has a lot of injury history, so there are many eyes that are concerned. MLB.com said, “Texas was well aware of DeGrom’s injury history before signing a five-year, $185 million contract. He is a two-time National League Cy Young Award winner and a four-time All-Star with the Mets. He’s a pitcher, but he hasn’t started more than 15 games in a season since 2019.” 메이저놀이터

In addition, the media was concerned about deGrom’s injury, saying, “In the first few weeks of spring camp, I was late to join due to left side pain. I was replaced early due to right wrist pain in the game against Kansas City on the 18th, but I returned to normal in the next game.” But Texas general manager Chris Young wasn’t too concerned, saying, “He’s very smart about this (injury management).” 

Meanwhile, Korean Dane Dunning is in charge of the starting rotation without deGrom for the media. Dunning took the mound as the team’s second pitcher against the Yankees on the 29th, which was destroyed early by deGrom, and became the winning pitcher, recording 3 hits, 1 strikeout and 2 runs in 3⅓ innings. He has a 1.77 earned run average in 20⅓ innings as a reliever this season. 

General manager Chris Young said, “He’s a very solid major league pitcher and he’s off to a good start. He did a great job (on the 29th) and I’m glad he’s here at this (crisis) moment.”
