The Boston Red Sox need a shortstop.
The Red Sox team announced on the 11th (Korean time) that infielder Trevor Story (31) had surgery on his right elbow.
According to this, Story successfully completed surgery to place an implant in his right elbow’s medial collateral ligament (UCL). The surgery was performed by Dr. Keith Meister in Arlington, Texas, USA.
This surgery is known to have a faster recovery period than the so-called ‘Tommy John surgery’, which replaces the UCL with ligaments from other parts of the body.
Fielders have a shorter recovery period than pitchers. ‘ESPN’ major league reporter Jeff Passan set the expected recovery period from four to six months. 메이저놀이터
Story, who had agreed to a six-year, $140 million deal with the Red Sox ahead of the 2022 season, would have been the team’s starting shortstop, replacing Xander Bogarts, who had left for San Diego, had he not been injured.
However, the surgery disrupted preparation for the season. Boston needs a new shortstop to replace him. All of the top shortstops currently on the free agent market have found their own teams, and those who remain include Elvis Andrews, Alcides Escobar, Didi Gregorius, Jose Iglesias and Andrelton Simmons.
If the free agent contract is not suitable, it can be supplemented with a trade. Attention is drawn to the news as it comes at a time when trade rumors about Kim Ha-seong, who was pushed from shortstop to second base with Bogatz’s joining, are constantly being raised.
