‘Even with a broken thumb’, Seattle’s main catcher has finger surgery… What about the regular season?
Reporter Yoon-Jun Ko = It is known that Carl Raleigh, who played in the postseason last year with a broken finger and torn ligaments, underwent off-season surgery.
Reporter Adam Jude of the ‘Seattle Times’ said on the 2nd (Korean time), “Raleigh underwent surgery on the thumb and torn ligament of his left hand receiving the ball, and said he felt very good.”
Seattle entered the fall baseball stage for the first time in 21 years last year and advanced to the Division Series, but was unfortunately eliminated after losing three straight games to the Houston Astros.
However, many fans applauded, and the main catcher Raleigh drew attention. This is because Raleigh played the game to the end even with a broken thumb and a torn ligament. It is reported that he did not even receive proper treatment as the team was in an all-out war.
The exact date of his surgery was not revealed after this, but it was reported that he underwent surgery during the offseason. Also, already in rehab, he helped teammate Marco Gonzalez pitch the bullpen. 바카라
If Raleigh leaves with an injury, it could be bad news for Seattle. He had a low batting average of 0.211, but showed good form with 27 home runs and 63 RBIs with an OPS of 0.773. He is well-loved as a catcher with good framing and good defense.
It’s already looking good for Seattle, as Raleigh appears to have shrugged off the injury, and backup catcher Tom Murphy has also been in good form. Seattle, which has been on the postseason stage for the first time in 21 years, aims to advance for the second year in a row this season.
