An emergency was caught in the busy Toronto Blue Jays. A sudden line injury occurred.
On the 28th (Korean time), Toronto lost 7-10 after a match that went to the 10th overtime in a confrontation with the 2023 Major League Cleveland Guardians held at the Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Toronto, the 4th place American League wild card, escaped its three-game losing streak thanks to Ryu Hyun-jin (36)’s good pitch the previous day (27th). But the joy did not last a day.
With another loss that day, Toronto was 2.5 games behind the Houston Astros in third place. You have to go beyond Houston to play fall baseball.
There is another problem. As bitter as defeat is the injury of key players. Shortstop Bo Bissett and third baseman Matt Chapman were both injured and were replaced during the game.
Here’s the situation. Bisset, who started as a leadoff, hit Noah Syndergaard’s first pitch, a 92-mile sinker, in the bottom of the fifth inning with one out, but it became a ground ball to second base. Later, while running to first base, he felt pain in his right thigh. In the end, when defending in the top of the 6th inning, he was replaced by Santiago Espinal.
The Toronto team announced that “Bisset felt pain in his right quadriceps muscle.” Director John Schneider said, “I will watch Bisset’s condition.”
Bisset is leading the batting line with a batting average of 0.314, 152 hits, 18 homers, 62 RBIs, an on-base percentage of 0.344, and an OPS of 0.832 in 114 games, including this day’s game. But then came the injury.
In fact, Bissett’s injury is not the first. He suffered a knee injury in a game against Baltimore on the 1st and was placed on the injured list. After recovering through treatment, Bisset improved his condition through rehabilitation and returned on the 20th. He was injured again on the eighth day after returning.
It’s not just Bisset. Chapman was also injured. It was reported that the injury was more serious than Bisset’s.
Chapman was replaced by Whit Merrifield in the bottom of the 6th inning when he returned from the 2 out. The reason for his replacement is pain in the middle finger of his right hand.
He will undergo a detailed examination. Director Schneider said, “I’m getting an MRI scan.”
Chapman has appeared in 125 games and has a batting average of 0.248, 113 hits, 15 home runs, 50 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.769.안전놀이터
Following the bullpen pitcher Eric Swanson’s departure from the previous day due to back pain, two key hitters were injured that day. It’s like an emergency in Toronto, which is busy to go.
