The Los Angeles Dodgers were hit with a big bad news. After Dustin May was placed on the injured list (IL), ‘Ace’ Julio Urias was also taken off the line.
American Major League Trade Rumors (MLBTR) and MLB.com reported on the 21st (Korean time) that “LA Dodgers Julio Urias was registered on the 15-day injured list.”
On the 21st, the Dodgers were literally hit by a ‘thunderbolt’. On the 18th, ‘Fireballer’ Dustin May voluntarily pitched after complaining of elbow pain after finishing the first inning against the Minnesota Twins. May, a pitcher who recently underwent Tommy John surgery, was on edge for the Dodgers. He fortunately avoided major injuries, but suffered an elbow flexor injury and missed four to six weeks. In this situation, Yurias also leaves.
According to the local revenge press, Yurias suffered a left hamstring injury. He may not be able to make a quick comeback considering he’s on the 15-day injured list rather than the 10-day injured list. ‘MLBTR’ said, “As Tony Gonsolin returned from an ankle sprain, the Dodgers’ starting rotation seemed to be complete, but two players were left out. It was a big blow.”
Along with the resurrected Clayton Kershaw, Yurias is the ‘one-two punch’ representing the Dodgers. Urias appeared in 32 games in the 2021 season and played an active role with an average ERA of 2.96 with 20 wins and 3 losses, rising to the ranks of the aces.스포츠토토
However, his performance this season has been a bit disappointing. Urias pitched in 10 games this year and recorded 5 wins, 4 losses, and an ERA of 4.39. In particular, in the previous appearance, it collapsed greatly with 6 hits (4 home runs), 2 walks and 6 runs (6 earned runs) in 3 innings, and the average ERA, which was 3.61, soared to 4.39.
‘MLBTR’ said, “Even if Urias was shaken a little in the previous game, there is no easy way to replace an ace like him.” “The severity of Urias’ hamstring injury is unknown. Even in the best case scenario, at least 15 days or more “If he is out for an extended period of time, it will be a bigger problem for the Dodgers.”
It is not that there are no substitutes. ‘MLBTR’ said, “Unless Andre Jackson is called up from Triple A, Gavin Stone will be the first choice to replace Urias.” S, there’s Bobby Miller,” he added.
