‘Rehabilitation successful’ Maeda, live BP digestion ‘seems to be revived’

Maeda Kenta (35, Minnesota Twins), who has been working hard on rehabilitation after elbow ligament joint surgery (Tommy John surgery), faced a batter for the first time after recovering. He also did defensive drills.

The Athletic reported on the same day that Maeda pitched against teammate Max Kepler (30) at Live BP on the 20th (hereafter Korean time).

Also, along with pitching, Maeda also practiced the pitcher’s defense. Maeda appeared to handle an infield grounder heading toward second base.먹튀검증

Earlier, Maeda completed 40 bullpen pitches on the 17th, and successfully completed the live BP on the day. He is also expected to participate in an exhibition game that will be held soon.

Maeda was placed on the injured list in August 2021 due to right forearm pain, and in September of that year, he underwent elbow ligament joint surgery (Tommy John surgery).

Afterwards, Maeda was expected to be able to return at the end of last year’s season, but Minnesota opted for a more solid rehabilitation. As a result, Maeda’s return was postponed to the 2023 season.

Maeda threw 106 1/3 innings in 21 games of the season before injury in the 2021 season, recording only 6-5 and an average ERA of 4.66.

This is the highest ERA since entering the major leagues. Accordingly, Maeda will aim for a good contract with the major leagues through the revival of the 2023 season.
