Left-hander Carlos Rodon (30), who the New York Yankees spent a lot of money on, has been suffering from injuries since the first season of the contract. It is expected that he will be listed on the injured list (IL) again after about a month of his return.
Rodon started against the Houston Astros at Yankee Stadium on the 7th (Korean time) and suffered a left hamstring injury while pitching in the third inning and went down the mound. He gave up 3 hits and 2 walks, including 2 homers, and gave up 5 runs in 2⅔ innings.
The Yankees team said Rodon would soon undergo an MRI.
In the top of the 3rd inning, trailing by 1-3, Rodon sent out the lead Jose Altuve with a bunt hit and caught Alex Bregman with a fly ball to center fielder. Then, Jordan Alvarez hit a superior two-run home run, widening the score to 1-5. Rodon struck out looking for the next batter, Kyle Tucker, but suddenly complained of hamstring pain after throwing a 96.6 mph fastball in the fourth to Chas McCormick. Because the balance collapsed, the ball became a ball flying to the outer high course.
Yankees coach Aaron Boone and his trainer went up to the mound to check Rodon’s condition and watch his practice pitching, but the condition was so serious that he eventually replaced the mound with Johnny Britto.
“It felt like something was grabbing my hamstring,” Rodon said. “It was a cramp, and it kept repeating. It got better after that, but it came down because it could get worse.”
Rodon signed a six-year, $162 million (approximately 211.6 billion won) free agent contract last winter and wore a Yankees uniform. Initially, he was expected to form a one-two punch with Gerrit Cole and lead the rotation well, but suffered a left arm injury during spring training camp and was out of power before the season. After over three months of rehabilitation, Rodon returned on the 8th of last month and made his Yankees debut by starting against the Chicago Cubs.
He recorded 1 win, 4 losses and an earned run average of 7.33 in 6 games this season. “It’s really disappointing,” said Rodon.안전놀이터
Rodon threw 178 innings in 31 games for the San Francisco Giants last year, posting a 14-8 record, an average ERA of 2.88, and 237 strikeouts, properly riding the ‘FA Lloyd’. Since his major league debut in 2015, he pitched the most innings, recorded the most individual wins and the most strikeouts, and received numerous love calls from the market. His excellent strikeout ability and stable control were highly praised and he hit the jackpot.
First of all, his future will be decided according to the MRI results, but the atmosphere is gloomy right now.
After his return, Rodon averaged 95.3 mph on a four-seam fastball, close to last year’s 95.5 mph. Even on this day, he showed his power by throwing a fast ball with a maximum of 98.8 mph and an average of 96.2 mph, but as many missed pitches were driven into the middle, he hit 2 home runs and gave up 5 runs.
David Price (7 years, 217 million dollars, retired), Washington Nationals Stephen Strasburg (7 years, 245 million dollars) , and Boston Red Sox Chris Sale (five years, $145 million). It seems that you can insert a rodon here.
