Jacob deGrom (35, Texas Rangers), who is about to return to action after recovering from a side injury, will play in a minor league game.
MLB.com, the official homepage of Major League Baseball, announced on the 13th that deGrom would start in Texas’ Double-A game, which will be held on the 14th (Korean time).
DeGrom left Texas last month with pain in his left side, which strained Texas. But he’s been good lately in the bullpen and live BP.
In particular, deGrom threw 35 balls in live BP on the 9th. He averaged a four-seam fastball velocity of 99 mph and threw a 100 mph.
DeGrom is expected to pitch three innings in a minor league game on the 14th. It is expected that there will be no problem raising the pitching innings in line with the opening day.
The most important thing is that deGrom goes into Opening Day without further injury. Texas and deGrom will never overdo it.스포츠토토
DeGrom signed a five-year, $185 million contract with Texas this winter. At the time, deGrom said his goal was to start 30 games a season.
Texas has very high hopes for deGrom. Attention is focusing on whether deGrom will be able to end Texas’ free agent brutality and regain the dignity of the best pitcher in the world.
Meanwhile, Texas right-handed starting pitcher Nathan Eboldi (33) is also aiming for a comeback after playing in a minor league Triple-A game on the 14th.
