Yoo Jong’s beauty is not easy. St. Louis Cardinals pitching legend Adam Wainwright (42) is injured. Will we see him on the mound again?
St. Louis announced on the 5th (Korean time) that “Wainwright was placed on the disabled list with a shoulder inflammation injury.”
Wainwright, who made his debut in 2005, is a franchise star who has only played in St. Louis for 18 seasons until this year. He recorded 198 wins, 121 losses, 17 holds, 3 saves, an average ERA of 3.46 and 2175 strikeouts in 468 games (2619 innings) in his career. In particular, he posted double-digit multipliers for seven consecutive years from 2007 to 2014. He achieved three All-Stars and two-time Most Winnings. In the 2006 season, he also decorated the World Series winning moment as a closer.
He is a well-known player even to Korean fans. It’s time for the 2020 season. At the time, he was one of the colleagues who helped Kwang-Hyun Kim (SSG), who was trying to return home after the season opening was delayed for 4 months due to the Corona 19 pandemic.
At that time, Wainwright called Kim Gwang-hyun to his house and helped him both physically and mentally, such as training with a catch ball in the yard. Kim Gwang-hyun, who successfully completed his major league debut season that year, was grateful, saying, “If it hadn’t been for Wainwright, he would have gone back to Korea.”메이저놀이터 추천
After that, he will take off his uniform at the end of this season. announced his retirement.
However, the retirement season is not easy. The start of the season was delayed by a month due to a groin injury at the World Baseball Classic (WBC), which he participated as a representative of the United States in March.
He’s not even coming out with grades. He pitched in 11 games this season and went 3-4 with a 7.66 earned run average in 51⅔ innings, which is not good.
To make matters worse, this time he suffered a shoulder injury.
Wainwright said strongly that “it’s not over yet” and that he will be back recovering from his injuries.
Wainwright has reportedly complained of shoulder discomfort all season. Maybe that’s why he hasn’t played well in the last 3 games. He was sluggish, giving up 7 runs in 3 innings against the Cubs, 6 runs in 1 1/3 innings against Houston, and 7 runs in 3 1/3 innings against Miami.
“I had elbow surgery ahead of the 2018 season. I pitched five more years after that. This pain has had an impact. I can’t deny it, I can’t hide it. I need to get better.”
“I believe Wainwright will recover and come back. It shouldn’t be the last season like this. He’s a champion. I don’t think it’s right for Wainwright to end like this, so I’m not going to come back.” I hope,” he prayed for a recovery.
