Manny Machado (31, San Diego Padres), who suffered an elbow injury at the end of the regular season, was put on the operating table. It is not yet known whether he will participate in the opening game of the 2024 season.
The San Diego Union-Tribune, a local media outlet in San Diego, USA, reported that Machado underwent surgery on his right elbow extensor tendon on the 4th (Korean time).아톰카지노
The recovery period is 4 to 6 months. If his recovery period is close to minimal, he could play in the 2024 season opener. However, if the recovery period is long, spring training cannot be completed.
Machado hasn’t played his part this season. In 138 games this season, he only recorded a batting average of 0.258, 30 home runs, 91 RBI, 75 runs, 140 hits, an on-base percentage of 0.319, and an OPS of 0.782.
In particular, last August, when it became virtually difficult for San Diego to advance to the postseason, he bowed his head with a batting average of 0.200 and an OPS of 0.674.
Machado is a very valuable player for San Diego. That’s because he signed an additional five-year, $170 million contract ahead of this season. He ended up being a player worth 11 years and $350 million total.
Accordingly, Machado will receive an annual salary of $39 million from the 2027 season to the 2033 season. Machado will turn 41 in 2033.
What San Diego wants from Machado is the same performance as last year. He had a batting average of 0.298, 32 home runs, 102 RBI, and an on-base percentage of 0.366 and an OPS of 0.898 in 150 games last year.
Attention is focused on whether Machado, who has a precious body, will be able to show the same performance as last year in the 2024 season after going through the rehabilitation process after surgery.
