The bad news of ‘injury’ LAD, “a pop sound from the knee… I am thinking of the worst case scenario.”
It seems that there will be a major bad news for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Gavin Lux, the starting shortstop this season, went down with a knee injury. Dave Roberts, manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers, said, “They said there was a pop in the knee. As a player, he is thinking the worst,” he said, depressing news.
An exhibition match between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Diego Padres held at Peoria Stadium in Peoria, Arizona, USA on the 28th (hereafter Korean time).
In the top of the 6th inning of the Dodgers, Luke Williams hit a ground ball from the 3rd baseman on 1st and 2nd base. Lux, a runner on second base, ran toward third base and fell to the ground while trying to avoid a throw.메이저놀이터
ESPN reported, “As Lux tried to change course to avoid a throw, his right knee appeared to buckle and he fell to the ground. He clutched his knees in pain and could not stand up.” Eventually, a cart came into the ground and Lux rode it out.
“Lux said he heard something pop on the outside of his knee,” manager Roberts said after the game. Lux went for an MRI scan, and so far there is no further information from the Dodgers team. It is very likely that the ligament has ruptured.
“As a player, I’m thinking the worst,” said Roberts. “But we don’t have a lot of information right now (about his injury). Right now, I can only hope that it is a minor, non-fatal injury,” he said of hope.
Lux was a shortstop prospect selected by Los Angeles with the 20th overall pick in the first round of the 2016 draft. He debuted in the big leagues in 2019, and this is his 5th year. Last year, while playing as the starting second baseman, he recorded a batting average of .276, 6 homers, 42 RBIs, 66 runs, and an OPS of .745 in 129 games. In particular, he led the National League with 7 triples.
Last winter, shortstop Trey Turner signed an 11-year, $300 million free agent deal with Philadelphia, and the Dodgers planned to use Lux as their starting shortstop this season.
Manager Roberts expressed regret, saying, “I don’t want to rush to conclusions until the results of the hospital tests come out, but Lux has prepared a lot for this camp and season, so it’s really unfortunate.”
