Carlos Rodon (31, New York Yankees), a left-handed starting pitcher who was paid a whopping $162 million, has been sidelined by injury again.
The New York Yankees hosted the Houston Astros at New York Yankee Stadium in New York, New York, on July 7 (ET).
Rodon, who started the game for the Yankees, threw 58 pitches (38 for strikes) in 2 2/3 innings, giving up five runs on three hits. He was hit by two home runs.
Even worse, Rodon left with an injury. Trailing 5-1 in the third inning, Rodon felt discomfort in his left leg while facing Chas McCormick.
The Yankees pulled Rodon and quickly sent Johnny Brito to the mound to close out the third inning. The injury replacement after 2 2/3 innings and five runs.
Rodon’s exact physical condition is still unknown. However, the hamstring injury is likely to keep him out for at least two weeks.
Rodon previously missed about three months with a pre-opening day injury. He didn’t make his first start of the season until August 8th.
In addition, Rodon has been unsatisfactory in five of his six starts since returning from injury. His best outing was 5 2/3 innings of one-run ball against the New York Mets on April 27.바카라사이트
Up to that point, Rodon had pitched 27 innings in six games on the season, going 1-4 with a 7.33 ERA. What’s going against the New York Yankees’ wishes.
The New York Yankees could very well be blowing $162 million out of thin air. Of course, concerns about Rodon were raised long before he signed. The Yankees knew this and signed him anyway.
