Japanese pitcher Darvish Yu (37), who plays with Kim Ha-sung (28) in the San Diego Padres in the Major League Baseball (MLB), will not be able to play for the time being due to an elbow injury.
MLB Dotcom reported on the 29th (Korea Standard Time) that Darvish was on the 15-day injured list (IL) due to inflammation of his right elbow.
Darvish’s IL registration date will be retroactively applied to the 27th, the day after his most recent appearance.
Darvish, who renewed his contract with San Diego for six years and $108 million in February this year, fell short of expectations with an 8-10 ERA of 4.56 in 24 games this season.
In August, he lost three games without a win and remained with a 4.66 ERA in five games, and was even more sluggish in the last two games. He lost four runs in five innings against the Arizona Diamondbacks on the 20th and five runs in four innings against the Milwaukee Brewers on the 26th.
With Joe Musgrove out of power earlier this month due to a shoulder injury, even Darvish was absent, leaving San Diego with a big gap in the starting lineup.
There was also a dark cloud in advancing to the postseason. San Diego, which fell to fourth place in the National League West, is eight games behind Arizona, the Maginot Line, in the wild card rankings. 토토사이트
