Mookie Betts collapsed after being hit by a pitch

A pitcher and batter worth about 500 billion won disappeared overnight.

This is the story of Yoshinobu Yamamoto (25) and Mookie Betts (31), the center of pitching for the Los Angeles Dodgers of Major League Baseball (MLB).

The Dodgers announced on the 17th (Korean time) that they had placed ace Yamamoto on the injured list (IL) due to a right shoulder rotator cuff injury.

In addition, it was revealed that Betts suffered a fracture to the back of his left hand after being hit by a pitch during the game.

Yamamoto showed signs of injury during a home game against the Kansas City Royals held at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California, USA on the 16th.

Yamamoto, who took the mound as a starter, threw a slower ball than usual and gave up early in the third inning ahead of the defense.

The Dodgers explained that Yamamoto was out due to triceps pain, but an examination revealed a shoulder muscle injury.

Yamamoto will be excluded from the starting rotation for the time being.

MLB.com predicted, “It is not out of season, but we will have to rest for at least a few weeks.

Yamamoto, from Japan, is the most expensive MLB pitcher.

He joined the Dodgers in December of last year through a posting system (private competitive bidding) under the condition of receiving $325 million (about 449.8 billion won) over 12 years.

This is the highest guaranteed amount for an MLB pitcher in history, surpassing Gerrit Cole (New York Yankees, 9 years, $324 million).

Yamamoto, who entered the big leagues, seemed to live up to expectations by posting a record of 6 wins, 2 losses, and an ERA of 2.92 in 14 starts this season, but he was temporarily out of action due to injury.

The Dodgers’ worries doubled as Betts collapsed on the same day.

Betts broke the spine of his left hand after being hit by a 158 km/h fastball thrown by right-handed pitcher Dan Altavilla in the bottom of the 7th inning with a 3-0 lead in a home game against Kansas City held at Dodger Stadium on the 17th.

MLB.com reported, “Betts is not on the operating table, but a return schedule has not been set.”

Betts is an MLB superstar who signed a 12-year, $365 million (505.2 billion won) long-term contract with the Dodgers in July 2020.

This season, he performed well with a batting average of 0.304, 10 home runs, 40 RBI, 50 runs, and 8 stolen bases in 72 games. 섯다
