The emergency light turned on in the Boston Red Sox infield.
MLB.com reported on the 11th (hereinafter Korean time) that “Boston infielder Trevor Story underwent right elbow collateral ligament (UCL) reinforcement surgery.”
Boston is in a bad situation. I am concerned about whether the 2023 season will be okay. After the starting shortstop left for free agency, the second baseman also underwent surgery.
Zander Bogarts, the main shortstop, signed an 11-year, $280 million (346.7 billion won) contract with the San Diego Padres as a free agent.
The departure of Bogarts left a hole in Boston’s infield. However, even the veteran infielder Story, who was responsible for the infield center line with Bogatz, was separated from the power. 토토
Story’s elbow surgery requires four to six months to recover. ESPN Jeff Passan expected a recovery period, saying, “It’s a modified Tommy John surgery.”
Bogarts recorded a batting average of 3.7, 15 homers and 73 RBIs in 150 games last season, and is a major league top infielder with a career batting average of .292, 156 home runs and 683 RBIs.
Story played as a major league shortstop before moving to second base last year. He also won the National League All-Star and Silver Slugger in 2018 and 2019, and has a career batting average of .268 with 174 homers and 516 RBIs.
All the players who guarded the Boston infield center line were left out. MLB.com said, “Story was a strong candidate for the starting shortstop when Bogarts left. But now Boston has two big holes in the infield.”
