San Diego’s Yu Darvish out for the season due to elbow injury… “Whether to have surgery will be decided later.”

Japanese pitcher Yu Darvish (37), who plays for the San Diego Padres of the American Major League Baseball (MLB), is out for the season due to an elbow injury.

In an interview on the 11th (local time), a day before the 2023 MLB game against the LA Dodgers held at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California, USA, Darvish announced that he would no longer pitch this season.메이저놀이터

Darvish said, “After the injury, I devoted myself to treatment, including receiving cortisone injections (which suppress inflammation). However, he said he had lingering pain in his elbow when he recently started playing catch, and decided not to throw anymore this season.

He continued, “The team did not achieve good results this season. “I also feel responsible,” he said.

Darvish performed somewhat poorly against the Milwaukee Brewers on the 26th of last month, allowing 5 runs in 4 innings. Three days later, on the 29th, he was placed on the injured list.

After his injury, he tried to get treatment, but there was no improvement. In addition, San Diego is in a situation where there is no need to force a comeback since advancement to the postseason has virtually been canceled. said, “Darvish is not scheduled to throw a ball for about six weeks. He will be reexamined in six weeks, and a decision will be made on whether or not to have surgery depending on his condition.”

Darvish has had elbow surgery before. In March 2015, when he was with the Texas Rangers, he underwent elbow ligament surgery (Tommy John surgery) and spent the 2015 season undergoing treatment and rehabilitation.

After returning in May 2016, he continued his life as a big leaguer, showing off his pre-surgery skills again.

In 2018, when Darvish was playing for the Chicago Cubs, he underwent arthroscopic surgery to remove a bone spur in his elbow and was ruled out for the season in mid-September. At this time, he completed rehabilitation in the off-season and played the 2019 season normally.

Meanwhile, San Diego signed a six-year, $108 million (approximately KRW 143.4 billion) long-term contract with Darvish in February of this year.

However, Darvish fell below expectations with 8 wins, 10 losses, and an ERA of 4.56 in 24 games this season, and had to end the season early due to injury.
