Jacob deGrom, who has the stigma of “glass body,” has finally recovered from his injury and is set to return.
Texas Rangers pitcher DeGrom pitched bullpen ahead of the game against the Pittsburgh Pirates on the 23rd (Korea Standard Time). He threw a total of 32 balls, and checked his senses by using only fastballs. DeGrom will pitch his second bullpen session ahead of the Baltimore Orioles match on the 27th, when he will throw an additional breaking ball.
Texas coach Bruce Bochy said,메이저사이트 “It’s really, really good. DeGrom’s condition is also said to be very good, and there is no special abnormality even after pitching the bullpen,” he said, signaling his return.
Coach Bochy predicted positively, “The exact return schedule has not been confirmed yet, but he will be able to return to the list without additional rehabilitation.”
DeGrom, a former “ace” of the New York Mets, signed a five-year, $185 million contract with Texas ahead of this season. However, DeGrom, who has been repeatedly hampered by injuries since his time with the Mets, has been suffering from injuries since the beginning of the season even after his transfer.
DeGrom, who made only 26 appearances for the Mets in the past two seasons, started against the New York Yankees on April 29 and was replaced by a sudden injury in the fourth inning. Later, MRI examination revealed inflammation of the elbow and began rehabilitation. At first, I thought I could return in two to three weeks, but it has been nearly a month since I left. It is expected to take about two more weeks because of the need to recover the sense of the game and increase the number of pitches.
