Was the surgery wrong? Kenta Maeda (35, Minnesota Twins), who returned after a long rehabilitation, had the worst day since his major league debut.
Minnesota had a home game against the New York Yankees on the 27th (Korean time) at Target Field located in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA.
Maeda, who started as Minnesota’s starting pitcher that day, threw 72 pitches (46 strikes) in 3 innings, allowing 10 runs on 11 hits. This is Maeda’s most goals in a game.
11 hits and 10 runs without a home run. As a slang word, it hit like dust on a rainy day. Maeda finished the first inning without conceding, but from the second inning, he was greatly shaken.
Maeda gave up 5 runs in the 2nd inning, giving up 5 hits and 1 walk.안전놀이터
In addition, Maeda’s runners all stepped home after the steel plate, and eventually scored double-digit runs. A bigger problem occurred after the game.
The Athletic of the United States reported that Maeda complained of elbow pain during pitching that day, and that his magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan would be conducted soon.
Maeda missed all of last year due to elbow ligament joint surgery (Tommy John surgery). Maeda complained of elbow pain again.
A very serious situation even if it does not go to surgery. It looks like Minnesota will have to give Maeda a break in some way.
Minnesota was unable to overcome Maeda’s sluggishness and lost 6-12. After his return, Maeda went 4 without a win and had an earned run average of 9.00 in 4 games.
On the other hand, New York Yankees starting pitcher Domingo Hermann was sluggish with 6 runs in 6 innings, but he won his 2nd win of the season thanks to the support of other players.
