Ohtani Shohei (LA Angels) is lonely again. Mike Trout, the batters’ best friend, was confirmed to be out in the first half of the year due to a fracture in the left hip bone.
Trout was replaced by a pinch hitter when he complained of pain in his left hand during the top of the eighth inning of the game against the San Diego Padres at Petco Park in San Diego, California, on the 4th (Korea Standard Time). After hitting a foul 메이저놀이터순위 on the 80.8-mile curve of the second pitch in the top of the eighth inning, he sensed an abnormality in his left hand and his face hardened. In the end, he was replaced by Mickey Moniac during his at-bat and returned to the clubhouse.
In the end, Trout was on the injured list on the 15th ahead of the game on the 5th. It turned out to be a fracture of the left hip bone. MLB.com said, “I’m expecting to be absent for about four to eight weeks,” adding, “Trout asked some players who had fractured their hip bones for advice and heard that it could take about four weeks as soon as possible to return, but it could take longer.” We are listening to additional opinions to decide whether to operate or not, but we believe there is a possibility,’ he said. The out in the first half has been confirmed, and he can only return as early as August or as late as September.
“I knew it wasn’t good,” Trout said. I contacted many people who were injured and had surgery. Some people came back in four weeks and others took longer. “We will watch the development,” he said.
In addition, he was scheduled to play as an All-Star starter for 10 consecutive years, but his participation in the All-Star Game was also canceled. “It was really hard and I was looking forward to it, but I feel frustrated,” he said with regret.
Trout had a batting average of .263 (80 hits in 304 at-bats), 18 home runs, 44 RBIs, and OPS.862 this season. Although it is not as destructive as it used to be, Trout’s presence as Otani’s best friend cannot be ignored. The combination of Ohtani and Trout can be seen as everything about the Angels.
With 45 wins and 42 losses this year, it has recorded a winning rate of more than 50% for the first time in a long time, increasing the possibility of autumn baseball. However, Otani lost such a close friend and a companion who could be a shield. Is Ohtani’s dream of playing baseball in the fall in the Angels also ending like this.
