Left-handed pitcher Carlos Rodon (31, New York Yankees) was placed on the injured list once again.
Major League Baseball (MLB) official website MLB.com said on the 8th (Korean time) that Rodon was placed on the 15-day disabled list (IL) due to a left hamstring problem. This is somewhat of an expected sequence. Rodon, who started against the Houston Astros on the 7th, complained of discomfort in his leg after pitching in the third inning. Director Aaron Boone and other coaching staff went to the mound to check his physical condition and was immediately replaced by Johnny Britto.안전놀이터
It is an embarrassing ‘result’ for the Yankees. Rodon signed a contract with the Yankees in December of last year for 6 years and a total of 162 million dollars (211.9 billion won). Expectations were high as a one-two punch to lead the starting rotation along with Gerrit Cole. However, the ‘Yankees debut’ was delayed due to a back injury following a forearm injury in spring camp. He only made his first appearance on the 8th, and after a month he was again injured. Rodon’s season record was 1 win 4 losses with an ERA of 7.33. On base per inning (WHIP) is 1.52. In six games he started, he never pitched more than six innings.
Rodon’s career (nine years) in the big leagues is 57 wins, 50 losses, and an average ERA of 3.72. He was selected as an All-Star by both the Chicago White Sox in 2021 and the San Francisco Giants in 2022, and was voted for in the Cyvideo poll. In particular, last year, he was able to win a major contract with the Yankees by achieving a career-high season with an average ERA of 2.88 (178 innings) with a record of 14 wins and 8 losses.
