Left-handed pitcher Carlos Rodon (31-New York Yankees) has been placed on the disabled list once again.
MLB.com, the official website of Major League Baseball (MLB), reported on Monday that Rodon was placed on the 15-day disabled list (IL) with a left hamstring strain. The move was somewhat expected. In his start against the Houston Astros on July 7, Rodon complained of discomfort in his leg after three pitches. Manager Aaron Boone and the coaching staff went to the mound to check him out, and he was promptly replaced by Yoenis Brito.
It’s an embarrassing ‘result’ for the Yankees. Rodon signed a six-year, $162 million deal with the Yankees last December. He was expected to be a one-two punch in the starting rotation alongside Gerrit Cole. However, a spring training forearm injury followed by a back injury delayed his Yankees debut. He didn’t make his debut until August 8, and then fell victim to the injury again within a month. Rodon’s season record is 1-4 with a 7.33 ERA and a 1.52 walks allowed per inning (WHIP). He hasn’t lasted more than six innings in any of his six starts.바카라사이트
Rodon’s career (9 years) big league record is 57-50 with a 3.72 ERA. He was an All-Star with the Chicago White Sox in 2021 and the San Francisco Giants in 2022 and received votes in the Cy Young Award voting. He had a career-high season last year, going 14-8 with a 2.88 ERA in 178 innings, which earned him a big contract with the Yankees.
