Ha-seong Kim (28)’s team, the San Diego Padres,메이저놀이터 was in a state of emergency.
San Diego placed starting pitcher Joe Musgrove (31) on the 15-day disabled list (IL) on the 5th (Korean time). According to local media, Musgrove is unavoidable for the next three weeks as inflammation of the joint capsule in his shoulder was found in his magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan. He was expected to return in September at the earliest, so he had homework to fill the void.
Musgrove was a formidable starter before his injury. He started 17 games on the season, going 10-3 with a 3.05 earned run average. Blake Snell (8-8, 2.50 ERA) ranked first in most wins on the team, ahead of Yu Darvish (8-7, 4.53 ERA). He led the starting lineup by tying for 5th place in the National League (NL) in most wins, but was again knocked off the line due to an unexpected injury. Musgrove started the season in IL with a broken toe in late March.
Musgrove, who debuted in the big leagues in 2016, has a career record (8 years) of 60-57 with an ERA of 3.72. One of the stable selection resources that achieved double-digit wins for 3 consecutive years from the 2021 season. Recognizing his value, San Diego agreed to a five-year contract extension worth a total of $100 million (130.8 billion won) in August of last year. San Diego, which was on fire due to Musgrove’s departure, registered veteran left-handed pitcher Rich Hill in a trade to its 40-man roster.
Hill changed his uniform from the Pittsburgh Pirates to San Diego on the 2nd during the trade that included Choi Man-man. His syntactic record was 89-69 with an earned run average of 3.93. He is 7-10 with a 4.76 earned run average in 22 starts this season.
San Diego fell to 4th place in the National League with 54 wins and 55 losses. It seems that the team has moved away from the postseason competition with the leading LA Dodgers (62-45) in nine games. To make matters worse, he left Musgrove, making it even more difficult in the future ranking competition.
