An emergency was put on the Baltimore Orioles, who ranked first in the American League East Division.
Orioles general manager Mike Elias said in an interview with local media such as the ‘Baltimore Sun’ on the 27th (Korean time) that finisher Felix Batista had ‘some degree of damage’ to his right arm’s medial collateral ligament (UCL).
Batista took the mound to finish the ninth inning of a home game against the Colorado Rockies the day before, but with two outs, he felt something wrong with his arm and went down the mound.
If UCL is severe, you will have to do Tommy John surgery to transplant ligaments. Tommy John surgery requires a recovery period of 12 to 18 months.
Rehabilitation treatment sometimes returns without surgery, but there are also cases in which rehabilitation treatment is attempted and surgery is eventually performed.
When asked if he could return this season, general manager Elias replied, “I hope you Google how long it will take to recover from that injury.”바카라
Batista has established himself as the best finisher in the league in 2023, the second season of his major league debut.
In 56 appearances and 61 innings, he recorded an ERA of 1.48 and 33 saves in 39 save opportunities. He was also selected as an All-Star for the first time in his career.
It is a huge blow to both the team and the players. Director Elias expressed despair, saying, “Considering how he showed this year, he has an injury that I don’t even want to imagine.”
In addition to Batista, Baltimore is in charge of the bullpen with Jennier Cano, who is recording an ERA of 1.62 with 4 saves in 28 holds, Cionel Perez, who is recording an ERA of 3.77 with 1 save in 9 holds, and Danny Coulom, who is recording an ERA of 2.75 with 20 holds and 2 saves. The role of Shintaro Fujinami, who recorded an average ERA of 4.76 with 1 hold and 1 save in 16 games after the transfer, is expected to increase.
