  • February 16, 2023

There is no major problem, but it is not a very good sign from the beginning of spring camp. Texas Rangers’ new ace Jacob deGrom (35)’s first bullpen pitching has been postponed.먹튀검증

Texas general manager Chris Young announced on the 16th (Korean time), the first day of spring training, that deGrom’s bullpen pitching was postponed. Local reporters reported that he would postpone bullpen pitching for a day due to muscle tension in his left side. 

In the local area, it is cited as the reason for the abnormal cold wave that hit the Arizona area. At one time, it was not easy for the players to manage their physical condition in the temperature below zero. The KBO League clubs, who left for training in Arizona, are clearly embarrassed.

Levi Weaver, in charge of Texas at the North American sports media ‘The Athletic’, wrote on his social media account, ‘Chris Young, general manager, had an impact on the decision due to the cold weather and damp field conditions. deGrom said he wanted to pitch to the bullpen. Texas is not worried,’ he explained. There is no need to overdo it with bullpen pitching in inclement weather or on an unusual mound. 

But it was a situation that couldn’t help but break his heart. Texas declared an opt-out from the New York Mets and signed a five-year, $185 million contract with deGrom, who came out as a free agent. 

Last year, Cory Seager (10 years, $325 million), Marcus Semien (7 years, $175 million), and John Gray (4 years, $56 million) were recruited by storm, but with a record of 68 wins and 94 losses, the American League West Division 4 stayed above However, he did not stop at this and brought in deGrom to play the role of an ace, revealing his will for grades.

In the end, it’s important that deGrom stay healthy for Texas’ investment to bear fruit. But deGrom has only started 26 games over the past two seasons. He spent more time off the mound with a variety of injuries, including elbow soreness, side muscle pain, forearm injury and shoulder blade inflammation. Full-time digestion is bound to raise questions.

That’s why Texas, which has invested a large amount in this kind of deGrom, has no choice but to manage it more carefully and sensitively. Texas tried not to be agitated, but it was a moment that couldn’t help but sweep his chest. 

First of all, Texas is expected to decide whether or not to pitch deGrom to the bullpen again after watching for a day or so. /jhrae@osen.co.kr
