Carlos Rodon (31, New York Yankees), who left due to injury before the opening of the first season of the contract, is preparing to return. It is expected to return in May., the official website of Major League Baseball, reported that Rodon threw two innings in a simulation game on the 17th (hereafter Korean time).

Previously, Rodon started pitching in the bullpen on the 13th. This is an early stage of rehabilitation following a catch ball. Now, Rodon is expected to play in the minor leagues after gradually increasing the number of pitches.

The New York Yankees selected Rodon as the starting pitcher to lead the mound along with ace Gerrit Cole (33). It was a whopping six-year contract worth $162 million.

However, Rodon is a player whose physical condition cannot be guaranteed. As a result, there was great concern right after his contract, and this came to reality right before the opening.

Rodon had to leave due to an injury to his left forearm right before the start of the season. His forearm injury also led to elbow ligament splicing surgery (Tommy John surgery).

As a result, the New York Yankees have no choice but to be passive about Rodon’s return. That’s because he can’t lose the pitcher he bought for six years and $162 million to Tommy John surgery.

Rodon,메이저놀이터 who will be in his 9th year in the major leagues, did not win a big contract because he did not have confidence in his physical condition despite his outstanding performance with the Chicago White Sox in the 2021 season.

After that, Rodon threw 178 innings in 31 games for the San Francisco Giants last year, going 14-8 with an ERA of 2.88. 237 strikeouts.

Rodon, who wrote a career high, signed an astronomical contract with the New York Yankees, but in the end, his physical condition showed an abnormality. It remains to be seen if Rodon will continue to disappoint the New York Yankees.
