Carlos Rodon (31) of the New York Yankees receives an injection treatment.
MLB.com, the official major league media outlet, said on the 6th (Korean time), “Rodon is scheduled to receive a cortisone injection for his injured back early next week. The Yankees left-hander said he was ‘certainly optimistic’ about receiving injections for an injury that doctors said could become ‘chronic’.”
Rodon is a veteran starting pitcher with a record of 56 wins, 46 losses and an ERA of 3.60 in 152 major league games (847⅓ innings). Ahead of this season, he signed a six-year, $162 million contract with the Yankees. The Yankees expected Rodon to play a one-two punch with Gerrit Cole.
However, Rodon was injured from the exhibition game and has not yet appeared in a single game. He has been treated with injections, but it is still unclear when he will return. 먹튀검증
When asked if he could realistically return in July, Rodon replied that he could not reveal a definitive timeline for his return. “I will receive an injection treatment. And I want to be able to throw the ball as quickly as possible. When everyone is ready to throw the ball and everyone agrees, they will start throwing the ball. I thought I was pitching for the team at this point.”
Rodon, who initially started recovering from inflammation in his left forearm, recovered from his forearm injury at the club complex in Tampa, Florida, but found out that he could not throw the ball as he thought. Rodon was evaluated by three specialists, all of whom recommended injection treatment. Director Aaron Boone said, “Structurally, he is in good shape. However, some people have expressed the opinion that injection treatment is needed, and I think it will help.”
MLB.com said, “Rodon hasn’t pitched in the past two days. He will be unable to throw for a few more days once he is treated with injections. Rodon said his fastball velocity stayed between 87 and 90 mph (140-145 km/h). In the bullpen session, his velocity was relatively normal, but his control was erratic.”
