‘Second Tommy John’ LAD Buehler starts pitching… Rehabilitation training begins

Walker Buehler (LA Dodgers), who underwent Tommy John surgery for the second time in his career, started rehabilitation training.메이저놀이터

“Orange County Register” reporter Bill Plunkett said on the 3rd (Korean time), “Buehler started pitching training the day before. He played catch with a limited number of pitches from a distance of 60 feet.”

Subsequently, Buehler posted a video of pitching training with the comment ‘DAY 1’ through his personal Instagram.

Buehler left the roster in June of last year due to an elbow ligament injury and underwent Tommy John surgery in August. It’s his second Tommy John surgery, the one he underwent right after the 2015 draft.

The rehabilitation period for the surgery is 12 to 18 months, and no matter how fast you can return to the bullpen at the end of the season. However, local media predicted that even this would be difficult.

The Dodgers can also come back if he’s healthy, but there’s a very good chance he won’t overdo it. The best plan for Buehler is to get on the mound as the starter for the 2024 season opener.

Next season is a very important season for Buehler. Because he will become a free agent after the end of the 2024 season. As long as he’s healthy, it’s no wonder he lands big contracts.

Buehler went 46-16 with a 3.02 ERA and 690 strikeouts over six seasons, and earned two All-Star and World Series championship rings. In particular, in the 2021 season, he recorded 16 wins, 4 losses, an ERA of 2.47 and 212 strikeouts, and ranked 4th in the Cy Young Young.

Meanwhile, the Dodgers, who have not been able to use Buehler this season as well, have Clayton Kershaw, Julio Urias, Noah Syndergaard, Dustin May, and Tony Gonsolin in their rotation.
