After the double header with the Cincinnati Reds on the 24th (hereinafter referred to as Korean time)

Minassian Angels general manager Perry gave an interview with local media such as ‘ESPN’ and reported on the news of Ohtani’s injury.

Ohtani, who started the first game of the doubleheader that day

came off the mound in 1 1/3 innings.

After Game 1

the Angels announced that he had been substituted due to fatigue in his arm, but that was not the truth.

Director Minassian mentioned that Ohtani had been diagnosed with a ruptured medial collateral ligament (UCL) in his right arm

and that additional examinations would be scheduled. 

There is no pitcher pitch for the rest of the season.

Ohtani was previously diagnosed with elbow ligament damage in 2018

which was his rookie season.

 He initially chose rehab over surgery and returned at the end of the season

but eventually underwent Tommy John surgery after the season.

Rehabilitating from Tommy John surgery in the 2019 season

he digested a rehabilitation schedule that was possible only for him, digesting the designated hitter. 

It was in the 2021 season that he made a proper comeback as a pitcher.

It is not yet decided if he will undergo surgery again this time. 

After the additional checkup 먹튀검증

he plans to discuss with the player’s representative to determine the treatment method.

General Manager Minassian said

I believe that he will be able to show a high level of performance when he comes back.

Pitcher Ohtani threw 130 2/3 innings in 22 games this season

recording a 10-5 record with a 3.17 ERA. He had an adjusted earned run average (ERA+) of 142

which was the best in the American League

and his 5.9 hits per nine innings pitched was the best in the major leagues. 

He was averaging 1.2 home runs

3.7 walks and 11.4 strikeouts per 9 innings.

He became the first player in MLB history to record 10 wins as a pitcher and 40 home runs as a hitter in the same season.

This injury adds to the regret as it came about two months before his FA qualification. 

It remains to be seen how the outcome will affect his market value.

That’s not all of the injury news for the Angels. 

Mike Trout

the team’s leading hitter

is also on the injured list two days after returning.

Trout, who underwent surgery for a fractured haematopoietic bone in his left hand in early July

returned to action on the 23rd in the first game against Cincinnati and Siritsu

going 4-for-4 with 1 hit and 1 strikeout.

General manager Minassian said Trout will be taking a 10-day break and hopes to return at the end of the season.
