[Timeout] Ohtani tears ligaments in right arm, how can he hit?

Shohei Otani (29, LA Angels), a Japanese baseball superstar who doubles as a pitcher, was diagnosed with a collateral ligament rupture on the medial side of his right elbow after a game on the 24th. It has not yet been decided whether or not to have 소닉카지노 ‘Tommy John’ surgery to attach ligaments in the elbow. He had already had this surgery in 2018. He made it official that he would not play as a pitcher for the rest of the season. As a pitcher, his final performance this season is 10 wins and 5 losses (3.14 ERA) in 23 starts (132 innings) with 167 strikeouts and a batting average of 0.184. However, Ohtani, who is a right-handed and left-handed hitter, plans to continue batting. He is the first player in home runs (44 home runs) in his current league (American) and the entire Major League, and is aiming for the first home run king in his career.

The medial collateral ligament of the elbow is the tissue that holds the bones of the elbow together. If this ligament is damaged, it causes pain, and if it is torn, the bones of the elbow may collide and cause problems with the bones. The exact extent of Ohtani’s ligament injury is currently unknown. However, considering that the blow is possible, it is analyzed that it is not completely cut off.

SPOTV commentator Yang Sang-moon, who served as pitching coach for the baseball team, said, “The right ligament was injured due to the load from the stretching motion (while pitching). The right arm, which does the pulling motion, is relatively less burdened,” he said. Professional baseball KT trainer Koo Ja-wook said, “It will depend on the degree of injury or pain level, but unlike a pitch that shocks the elbow every time you throw it, it is possible to hit unless it is very seriously damaged.” ” he said. Lee Hyo-jin, professor of orthopedic surgery at Seoul St. Mary’s Hospital, said, “Elbow ligament rupture is a phenomenon that only occurs in pitchers, so pitchers stop their activities when damaged.” I don’t know,” he explained. He added, “Isn’t it to show that he will play an active part even in the batting to lead a new contract well after the season?” Ohtani will qualify as a free agent (FA) after this season.
