“You can do it like Ryu Hyun-jin” The American media presents TJS as an ideal rehabilitation model for deGrom who is in shock

The unfortunate news that hit the major leagues on the 7th (Korean time) was that Jacob deGrom (Texas Rangers) would soon receive Tommy John Surgery (TJS).메이저놀이터

On April 29, deGrom fought hard against the New York Yankees, giving up one hit and no run until two out in the fourth inning, but suddenly complained of arm pain and voluntarily gave up. He was placed on the injured list the next day. Until the end of last month, I heard that the rehabilitation was going well, but on the 6th, I was transferred to the 60-day IL, and I received a shocking finding that surgery was inevitable on the same day.

It is the second time in his life that deGrom will receive TJS. In 2010 after joining the New York Mets, he received his first TJS after throwing 6 games in the Rookie League. After 13 years he had the same surgery on the same area again.

The surgery schedule will be confirmed sooner or later, but if TJS is operated within this month, the return point can be expected around July next year.

There is a pitcher that comes to mind in this regard. This is Ryu Hyun-jin of the Toronto Blue Jays. Ryu Hyun-jin also received the second TJS in his life on June 18 last year. It was the first time in 18 years since 2004, when he was a sophomore at Dongsan High School in Incheon, that he had applied a knife to the same part for the same purpose.

Ryu Hyun-jin is undergoing final rehabilitation with the goal of returning right after the All-Star break next month. He plans to start his minor league rehab in the middle of this month, and if everything goes well, he is expected to be able to join the rotation from July 15, when the second half begins.

DeGrom, who has a similar surgery timing, has no choice but to go through the same rehabilitation process as Ryu Hyun-jin.

CBS Sports, a leading U.S. media outlet, introduces pitchers who have received TJS twice and draws attention by suggesting Ryu Hyun-jin as the ideal rehabilitation model for deGrom. Reporter Dane Perry, who wrote the article, said, “Texas considered the injury risk to some extent last winter when they signed deGrom, but they couldn’t have known the worst-case scenario would come so soon.” He will be among the few pitchers to try to make a successful comeback after receiving two .

Coincidentally, deGrom’s teammate Nathan Ibaldi is the representative pitcher who returned after receiving two TJSs and successfully took over the major leagues. Ivaldi underwent the surgeries in 2007 and 2016. He is now the strongest starting pitcher in the major leagues, and he is performing super-class pitching to the extent that he is considered a candidate for the AL Cy Young Award.

“Ivaldi, 33, has established himself as the best pitcher,” said Perry. Other pitchers who returned from two TJSs and succeeded in resurgence include Jameson Tyyon, Daniel Hudson, Jason Isringhausen, Chris Capuano and Joakim Soria. Hyun-Jin Ryu, who is currently preparing to return, and Walker Buehler of the Los Angeles Dodgers will soon be included in this group. ‘.

According to Perry, out of 40 pitchers who received TJS twice or more, 5 pitchers had a longer period than deGrom. Among them, Ryu Hyun-jin has the longest at 18 years. This means that deGrom should use Ryu Hyun-jin as a model and proceed with rehabilitation.

Reporter Perry said, ‘Ryu Hyun-jin can be said to be the best model for deGrom. Ryu Hyun-jin suffered frequent injuries while throwing at the All-Star level in the past. When deGrom returns after undergoing surgery this time, he will be 36 years old, similar to Ryu Hyun-jin.” “Ryu Hyun-jin is currently in the bullpen pitching stage. He’s focused on joining the rotation right after the All-Star break.’

In addition, he insisted that ‘Hyunjin Ryu’s steps can be a very good example for deGrom, who has many similarities’ and ‘DeGrom will face many difficult problems, but it is never impossible to succeed in rehabilitation like Hyunjin Ryu’.

Ryu Hyun-jin and deGrom were ‘at one time rivals’ who competed for the 2019 NL Cy Young Award. DeGrom, who was a healthy starter at the time, faced the biggest hurdle in the latter part of his career.
