‘14.35 billion contract → poor 4.56 ERA → elbow injury’ Darvish ends season early…”I need time to recover”

San Diego Padres Darvish Yu (37) ended the season early due to an elbow injury.

“In the end, Darvish’s 2023 season did not work out as well as many other things in San Diego,” the official Major League media MLB.com reported on the 13th (Korea Standard Time).

Darvish, who signed a six-year, $108 million (about 143.5 billion won) contract with San Diego ahead of this season, had a somewhat disappointing performance with 8 wins and 10 losses and a 4.56 ERA in 24 games (136⅓ innings). And on this day, he finally officially suspended the season due to elbow problems.

“Darvish told reporters at the Dodger Stadium dugout that he had a stress reaction on his elbow,” MLB.com explained.메이저사이트

Darvish has been unable to play due to elbow pain since he lost six hits (one home run), one walk, one walk, three strikeouts, and five runs in four innings against Milwaukee on the 26th of last month. Later, as a result of the examination, he was diagnosed that bones could irritate the elbow. He received cortisone injections in hopes of reducing the strain on his elbow. But when Darvish recently resumed his catch, he still felt pain in his elbow.

“Our team definitely didn’t fulfill its full potential,” said Darvish, who was disappointed. “It is true that I am somewhat disappointed,” he said, expressing regret over the injury.

“Darvish signed a six-year contract with San Diego before the start of the season. The important question now is what the future holds for Darvish. Darvish underwent Tommy John surgery in Texas in 2015 and missed most of the season in the 2018 Cubs due to stress reactions,” he said, worrying about Darvish’s future.

Darvish, who talked about his injury, explained that the injury in 2018 and this one are “pretty similar” in that the stress response did not progress to the fracture. MLB.com said, “The difference between the two injuries is the time of injury. In 2018, he was placed on the injured list (IL) in May and attempted to return several times in the summer. And after failing to return, he underwent arthroscopic surgery. Once injured at this point, Darvish is given plenty of time to rest. He will not pitch for at least six weeks and will undergo a re-examination. “We will know if surgery will be necessary after that,” he analyzed.
