Ah, the years.

What happens if you win by decision against Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto Blue Jays)? Max Scherzer (39, Texas Rangers) was forced off the mound due to right arm triceps spasm. In the 2023 Major League Baseball away game against the Toronto Blue Jays held at the Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on the 13th (Korean time), he earned his 13th win (6 losses) of the season with 3 hits, 2 strikeouts, and 1 walk and no runs in 5⅓ innings.

The two teams are fiercely fighting for the last American League wild card spot. The results of this four-game series in Toronto are very important. As a result, Toronto lost its first two games to Texas despite losing Chris Bassett and Ryu Hyun-jin, and ended up tied for third place with the Seattle Mariners. Texas is in second place, 0.5 games ahead of Toronto and Seattle. Among Texas, Toronto, and Seattle, one team cannot advance to the postseason.

Scherzer was traded from the New York Mets to Texas after completing one and a half years of a three-year, $130 million (approximately 172.8 billion won) contract. He is good with 13 wins, 6 losses, and an ERA of 3.77 in 27 games this season, and 4 wins, 2 losses, and an average ERA of 3.20 in 8 games since moving to Texas. He’s doing better than he did this year with the Mets, with 9 wins, 4 losses, and an ERA of 4.01 in 19 games.

Even though he is in his 40s in Korea, he still throws fastballs in the mid-90s, but he has also been battling lingering injuries recently. He was a solid player who pitched over 200 innings for six consecutive years from 2013 when he was with the Detroit Tigers to 2018 when he was with the Washington Nationals, but since then he has only pitched in 172⅓ innings, 67⅓ innings, 179⅓ innings, and 145⅓ innings.

He is famous as an ace with a stronger sense of responsibility than anyone else, but if he is sick, his pitching is bound to be affected. CBS Sports said, “Coach Bruce Bochy said he wants Scherzer to remain on the team no matter what his value is. Scherzer said, “Get an MRI.”먹튀검증

Although it was said to be a muscle spasm, it is not an injury to be taken lightly. This is because triceps spasms can eventually lead to elbow issues. The Texas starting lineup is highly dependent on Scherzer after Jacob deGrom suffered Tommy John surgery. Nathan Ivaldi recently returned from a break due to arm pain. Jordan Montgomery, Dean Dunning, etc. support the team. Dunning became the winning pitcher on the 12th, but he is not a one-two punch pitcher. Even if Texas advances to the postseason, it has no choice but to pay close attention to Scherzer’s health.

Scherzer told MLB.com, “When I got on the mound and looked at his movements, I could see that his arm was not relaxed. “He had felt cramps before.” “We want to make sure we don’t put him at risk,” coach Bruce Bochy said.
