I received 211.7 billion won… Rodon of the Yankees, ‘continuous disappointment’, injured again
New York Yankees Carlos Rodon could not avoid being listed on the injured list (IL) in the end.
ESPN said on the 8th (Korean time), “The Yankees put Rodon on the 15th IL due to a left hamstring problem.”메이저놀이터
Rodon, who pitched against the Houston Astros the day before, showed discomfort in his leg after pitching in the third inning, and was replaced by Johnny Britto.
It is a series of disappointments for the Yankees, who had high hopes for Rodon.
The Yankees signed a six-year, $162 million contract with Rodon ahead of this season.
Rodon, who entered the big leagues in 2015, went through the Chicago White Sox and San Francisco Giants, posting a record of 56 wins and 46 losses with a 3.60 ERA in 152 games until last year.
In particular, his performance in the last two years has been outstanding. In 2021, he went 13-5 with an ERA of 2.73, and in the 2022 season he went 14-8 with an ERA of 2.88.
Thanks to this, Rodon’s ransom price rose significantly in the free agent (FA) market, and the Yankees, who made a hot investment, were able to snatch it.
However, his companionship with Rodon is less than expected.
Rodon started the season on the disabled list from spring training due to a combination of forearm and back injuries.
Rodon, who blew away three months after opening, was able to digest his belated Yankees debut against the Chicago Cubs on the 8th of last month. He suffered an injury against Houston on the 7th, the 6th game of the season, and had to rest again.
Even in the game he started, he did not leave a clear presence.
Rodon is only 1-4 with an ERA of 7.33 in 6 games this season. In fact, Rodon’s first season with the Yankees is turning into a nightmare.
