‘216.1 billion won cyber pitcher’ Rodon returns at the end of the first half at the earliest

News about the return of Carlos Rodon (31, New York Yankees), who became a cyber pitcher from the first year after signing a super-large contract, came out.

The New York Post, a media outlet in New York, reported on the 12th that Rodon is aiming to conduct catch ball training on the 13th (hereinafter Korean time).

According to this, Rodon received cortisone injection treatment on the injured area on the 11th. After two days, he plans to start training for catch balls.

If all goes well, Rodon will return at the end of June. But only when everything went smoothly. That is, something that cannot be predicted.메이저놀이터

Also, even if everything goes smoothly, return only at the end of the first half. A pitcher whose physical condition is questionable will miss most of the first half from the first year of the contract.

Rodon’s injury departure is likely to occur throughout the contract period. The New York Yankees seem to have to prepare for this.

The bigger problem is that this kind of thing was foreseen. Rodon failed to win a major contract even after finishing fifth in the American League Cy Young Award voting in the 2021 season.

This is because all teams knew about Rodon’s physical condition. Afterwards, Rodon chose free agency, and recorded an average ERA of 2.88 in 31 games last year. Donga.com reporter Cho Sung-woon madduxly@donga.com

Could it be because he played 178 innings in 31 games last year? The New York Yankees gave Rodon a 6-year, $162 million contract. This was the beginning of the disaster.
