‘Glass body’ James Paxton (Boston Red Sox), who only played 6 games in the last 3 years, is in danger of injury again.
Paxton pitched as a starting pitcher in an exhibition game against the Minnesota Twins in the 2023 Major League Baseball held at Hammond Stadium in Fort Myers, Florida, on the 4th (Korean time).
He finished the first inning with a triple-trial, and went on the mound in the second inning. The pain came suddenly after the lead hitters Max Kepler and Michael A. Taylor were treated as beatings.
As soon as he finished the last pitch against Taylor, he grabbed his right leg, and manager Alex Cora urgently found the mound. Coach Cora, who checked his physical condition, eventually ordered a replacement, and Rio Gomes took the mound.
Paxton is already a player who has experienced a lot of injuries. Early in the 2021 season, he underwent Tommy John surgery and only played one game. Last year, he suffered from back pain and couldn’t play a single game.먹튀검증
After the season, Boston did not exercise his club option, but he remained with the team as Paxton exercised a $4 million player option.
He was expected to be used as a starting pitcher this season following Chris Sale, Nick Pivetta, Corey Kluber, Garrett Whitlock and Brayan Bello, but injuries came again. He signed a contract with Boston last year, but he hasn’t played in a single game, and it’s unclear when his debut will be.
The players are also breathing a sigh. “I didn’t want this to happen either,” Paxton said. I wanted to finish spring camp healthy. But I can’t control this either. I will do my best to be able to go back.”
“We don’t know the exact extent of the injury yet,” Cora said. You’ll probably find out the next day. I wish it were just cramps too. I hope nothing goes wrong and I hope Paxton can move on.”
