‘What about the Houston mound’ McCullers JR, finally out of the season
Bad news for the ‘defending champion’ Houston Astros. Lance McCullers Jr. (30) was eventually out for the season.
The Houston team announced on the 15th (Korean time) that McCullers had recently undergone surgery to treat the flexor tendon in the forearm of his right arm and remove an overgrown bone.
As a result, McCullers Jr. will not be able to return within this season. Participating in spring training for the 2024 season is a realistic goal.
McCullers Jr. was out last February with an elbow injury. However, it was not a structural problem. At the time, McCullers Jr.’s season was not expected to be out.
McCullers Jr., a seventh-year major leaguer, threw 162 1/3 innings in 28 games in the 2021 season, going 13-5 with an ERA of 3.16.메이저사이트
McCullers Jr. is definitely an all-star right-handed starting pitcher. However, due to his frequent injuries, he has not pitched more than 30 games since his major league debut in 2015.
His injuries are also varied. He was injured in several places including his shoulder, elbow, back and neck. In particular, after the 2018 season, he underwent elbow ligament splicing surgery (Tommy John surgery).
