New York Yankees super rookie Jason Dominguez is out for the season due to injury.
MLB.com, the official Major League website, said on the 11th (Korean time), “Dominguez, who was called up to the Major League on the 2nd, made a strong impression by recording a home run and a stolen base in one game (against the Milwaukee Brewers on the 9th).” “I was diagnosed with a ruptured ulnar collateral ligament in my right elbow and needed surgery. The 2023 season has ended. It is expected that I will return in the first half of the 2024 season.”
Dominguez, from the Dominican Republic, was born in 2003 and is one of the promising prospects. He made his big league debut on the 2nd in an away game against the Houston Astros. He started in center field, batting number five, and hit a home run in his first at-bat. In the top of the first inning, with one out and a runner on second base, he hit Justin Verlander’s second-pitch, 94.3 mile (approximately 151 km/h) four-seam fastball and went over the left field fence.
Dominguez appeared in the game consistently after that, and reached base in 7 consecutive games until the match against Milwaukee on the 9th. Afterwards, in the match on the 10th, he was silent with no hits in 4 at-bats and 3 strikeouts. His records in 8 games are 8 hits, 4 home runs, 7 RBI, 6 runs, 1 stolen base, and a batting average of .258 with an OPS of .980.
‘MLB.com’ reported, “According to Dominguez and manager Aaron Boone, Dominguez first noticed something strange during the game against Houston on the 4th. He felt ‘something wasn’t right,’ but he hit his second home run of the season and said he could continue playing.” He said.
After a rest day, Dominguez made his home debut against the Detroit Tigers on the 6th. He reported discomfort during the training portion for the first time in the following seven days. He subsequently received treatment, but his discomfort became increasingly severe. In the end, he was unable to swing properly and underwent testing.온라인카지노
The test results were not good. This situation requires surgery. “This is very shocking news. Now we have to understand this situation, look forward and get through this period,” Dominguez said.
Coach Boone said, “It will likely take Dominguez 9 to 10 months to recover,” and added, “The plan is to undergo surgery as soon as possible and try to recover quickly.”
