San Diego Padres Darvish Yu (37), who was on the injured list due to elbow inflammation, hopes to return within the season. Both Darvish and San Diego are keenly aware of the condition of the elbow.
Darvish was placed on the 15-day disabled list (IL) due to right elbow inflammation on the 29th (Korean time). Darvish, who signed a new contract with San Diego in February this year for 6 years and 108 million dollars (approximately 142.8 billion won), has been sluggish with 8-10 and an average ERA of 4.56 in 24 games this season.
MLB.com said on the 30th, “San Diego is confirming the extent of Darvish’s clear injury. We are waiting for the results of his elbow test.”스포츠토토
San Diego is 62-72 this season and is in fourth place in the National League West. The ride with the San Francisco Giants, who placed third in the wild card, which is the final line for advancing into the postseason, has been extended to 7.5 games. With 28 remaining games left, the chances of advancing to the post are virtually slim.
If San Diego gives up its postseason challenge, there’s no reason to rush Darvish back. However, Darvish wants to return within the season.
MLB.com said, “After the game on the 29th, Darvish expressed his intention to return this season.” “Obviously I’m not feeling well,” Darvish told the media, expressing regret over his injury, saying, “My responsibility is to pitch for the team and contribute to the win, so I’m disappointed.”
The results of Darvish’s checkup and San Diego’s direction for the season will likely determine whether he returns this season.
