Tampa Bay Rays left-handed ace Shane McClanahan will undergo left elbow ligament splicing surgery. He is expected to miss the remainder of the season, and it is unclear if he will return next year.
US sports outlet ‘CBS Sports’ reported the news of McClanahan’s surgery on the 16th (KST), stating, “He was placed on the 15-day disabled list on May 5 with forearm stiffness. A week later, he was moved to the 60-day disabled list.”
“With the results of the tests in, the worst-case scenario has been realized for both McClanahan and the club,” the outlet added.
McClanahan, who made his big league debut with Tampa Bay in 2021, is 33-16 in 74 career games. After reaching double-digit wins in his rookie year (10-6), he set a career-high in wins last year with 12 (8). This season, he is cruising with an 11-2 record and 3.29 ERA in 21 starts. But an unexpected injury blip has put a pause on that.
Tampa Bay is 74-45 (.622) through 15 games, in second place in the American League East and in first place for the wild card, but the Rays have been hit with an unexpected setback.
On Dec. 14, a social media post accusing infielder Wander Franco of having an inappropriate relationship with a minor sparked an investigation by the club, Major League Baseball and the Dominican Republic’s Department of Justice.카지노사이트
In his third year in the big leagues, Franco has appeared in 265 career games, batting .292 (1037-for-292) with 30 home runs, 130 RBI, 164 runs scored and 40 stolen bases.
Franco signed an 11-year, $182 million contract with Tampa Bay in November 2021 and is batting .281 (124-for-442) with 17 homers, 58 RBIs, 65 runs scored, 65 runs batted in and 30 stolen bases this season after being named an All-Star for the first time in his big league career.
The ace, who has won double-digit games for three straight seasons, has been sidelined by a torn ACL that landed him on the operating table. Read more at /firstname.lastname@example.org
