The return of San Diego Padres right-hander Joe Musgrove is delayed.
San Diego manager Bob Melvin reported on Musgrove’s injury in an interview ahead of an away game against the New York Mets at Citi Field in Flushing, New York on the 11th (Korean time).
Musgrove, who is rehabilitating at the club’s training ground in Peoria, Arizona, USA, injured his shoulder during a minor league practice game the previous day.
Manager Melvin explained the details of the injury, saying, “I sprained my shoulder while catching and throwing the ball that fell into my hand.”
He was treated with cortisone injections, which are effective in treating inflammation and pain. Cortisone injections usually require a break of 2-3 days.
Director Melvin said, “The feeling has improved a lot. The question now is when to resume playing catch. It will start tomorrow at the earliest,” he said, explaining the progress going forward.
It is not yet at the stage to discuss the timing of return. After starting with the catch ball and finishing the bullpen, he plans to readjust the schedule for actual appearances.
One thing is for sure, the return will be later than expected. “It was a bit behind schedule,” Melvin explained.
Musgrove suffered a fractured big toe after being struck in the left foot by a kettlebell while training in the weight room during spring camp.
Afterwards, he resumed his training and stepped up to the stage of digesting the actual game, but his return is delayed due to an unexpected injury.토토사이트
Musgrove, who is in the first year of a five-year, $100 million contract, has gone 21-16 with a 3.06 ERA over the past two years in 62 appearances and 362 1/3 innings with San Diego.
