‘Glass body’ Giancarlo Stanton (34, New York Yankees) complained of frustration following an injury. “It is unacceptable,” he said.
Stanton was placed on the 10-day injured list (IL) on the 17th (Korean time). Stanton, who felt hamstring pain during the game, was found to have a grade 2 deformity as a result of a hospital examination, and was removed from the line. He was expected to be absent for about six weeks, so the club was in a state of emergency. The Yankees also miss veteran Josh Donaldson with a hamstring problem.
According to ESPN, an American sports channel, Stanton said it was “unacceptable” to be hurt so often. He will also be in the IL for 5 consecutive seasons, and the dishonorable nickname of ‘glass body’ has followed. ESPN said,토토사이트“Stanton has missed 223 games (41%) of the Yankees’ 546 games over the past four seasons.”
Even if there are many injuries, there are too many. Major League Baseball (MLB) official website MLB.com said, ‘Stanton suffered a left hamstring strain (August 9-September 15, 2020) and a left quadriceps strain (May 17-28, 2021) right ankle in recent seasons. Inflammation (May 25-June 4, 2022) Achilles tendinitis on the left (July 26-August 25, 2022), etc., suffered a series of lower body injuries.” “Stanton has a great physique,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. “He works very hard to avoid injury, but unfortunately this happened.”
Stanton, who was the National League MVP in 2017, had a batting average of 0.264 (1397 hits in 5289 at-bats), 382 homers and 982 RBIs. Miguel Cabrera (Detroit Tigers, 507 home runs) and Nelson Cruz (San Diego Padres, 461 home runs) are third in active home runs. He creates tremendous flight distance with his destructive swing, but suffers from cup injuries every year. Since joining the Yankees in a trade in December 2017, there is no ‘full-time’ experience except for 2018. Stanton recorded a batting average of 0.269 (14 hits in 52 at-bats), 4 home runs and 11 RBIs in 13 games before the injury this season.
