Jacob deGrom (35), who has yet to play in the exhibition game. But the Texas Rangers are not questioning deGrom’s Opening Day start.안전놀이터
On the 7th (Korean time), MLB.com, the official homepage of Major League Baseball, mentioned the future schedule of deGrom, who suffered left flank pain last month.
According to this, deGrom pitched in the bullpen on the 5th. On the following 9th, he will throw the ball against the batters in the actual game.
Texas is also optimistic that deGrom will be able to prepare for the start of the 2023 season without an injury gap. There are still more than 15 days left until the opening.
DeGrom left the bullpen in the middle of last month with pain in his left side, making Texas nervous. However, it does not appear to be a major injury.
This is because he has already pitched once in the bullpen at the end of last month after suffering left flank pain, and it has been confirmed that he threw a ball recently as well.
Now, it looks like deGrom will be rescheduling his exhibition game after Live BP on the 9th. He needs three or four appearances to increase his innings pitched.
Of course, Texas will never force deGrom to an unreasonable schedule. Because deGrom is a 5-year-$185 million rare body.
