‘248 billion’ Cy Young Young pitcher, replaced with another injury… what about the glass body?

Texas Rangers ace Jacob deGrom was replaced early due to another injury.

DeGrom started the game against the New York Yankees at Globe Life Field in Texas on the 29th (hereafter Korean time). He threw well, but was suddenly replaced with an injury in the 4th inning.

Strike out 1 in 1 inning and commit a triple strike. The second inning ended lightly with three outfield fly balls. In the 3rd inning, the lead batter struck out and continued the three-way offense. 

After one out in the 4th inning, leading 5-0, Anthony Rizzo was walked. Perfect was broken with the first on-base allowed. After catching Glaber Tozes with a fly ball out in right field, he got his first hit from Willie Calhoun and became 2nd, 1st and 2nd base. 

But suddenly deGrom was replaced as if something was wrong with his body. Dane Dunning got on the mound and blocked it without conceding. DeGrom finished the game with no runs in 3⅔innings, 1 hit, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts. He had 50 pitches.  크크크벳

After throwing a 96.6 mph fastball on the third pitch against Calhoun, he touched his side. He followed this by throwing an 89.4 mph slider, which allowed no hits. Then deGrom seemed to limp slightly. Trainer and pitching coach Mike Maddox got on the mound, and Maddox called manager Bruce Bochy to talk in foul territory. Manager Bochy went up to the mound and decided to change the pitcher. 

DeGrom signed a five-year, $185 million (248 billion won) contract with Texas last December. He’s only made 26 starts over the past two years with the New York Mets due to injury and has pitched 156⅓ innings. 

DeGrom threw only 4 innings against Kansas City on the 17th and was forced out early due to pain in his right wrist. However, against Oakland on the 24th, he showed that his physical condition was not a problem by pitching well with 6 innings, 3 hits, 11 strikeouts and 2 runs. However, this time it appears to be a residual injury to the side.
