Bad news has been delivered to the 메이저사이트Colorado Rockies.
On the 3rd (Korean time), MLB.com, the official homepage of the Major League Baseball (MLB), reported that Hermann Marquez (28), who was the starter for Colorado’s opening game, will undergo Tommy John surgery (elbow ligament replacement surgery). Marquez, who was placed on the injured list (IL) on the 28th of last month due to inflammation of his right elbow, was recently diagnosed as requiring surgery as a result of a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan.
Things got worse. Marquez started against the Cleveland Guardians on the 27th of last month and went down the mound with 6 hits and 3 runs in 3 2/3 innings. He attributed the pain to his right arm, initially attributed to a triceps problem. However, follow-up tests confirmed his elbow problem. MLB.com said, “A new test (examination) found significant ligament damage.” Marquez already had a history of being listed on IL related to forearm inflammation in mid-April. If he undergoes Tommy John surgery, it is expected that he will be able to return only in the second half of next season at the earliest.
It’s not a small power leak in Colorado. Born in Venezuela, Marquez made his big league debut in 2016. His career (8 years) record was 65 wins, 56 losses, and an average ERA of 4.41. It is an ‘Inning Eater’ that digested more than 180 innings in the last two seasons in a row. He went 2-2 with a 4.95 earned run average this season before his injury.
