The rehabilitation of Japanese pitcher Kodai Senga (New York Mets) is taking longer.

According to the Associated Press on the 25th (Korean time), Senga recently discovered inflammation of his right triceps muscle in a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan and received cortisone injection treatment.

He was unable to pitch in a single game this season due to shoulder inflammation, and while rehabilitating, he suffered another injury.

Senga took part in live batting for the first time at the end of last month and was about to pitch in a minor league rehabilitation game.

However, due to this injury, he will have to stop training for the next 3 to 5 days and then start again with basic catch ball training.

The specific time of return is unclear.

Senga, a right-handed fastball pitcher, signed a five-year contract worth $75 million with the Mets ahead of the 2023 season.

Senga, who recorded 12 wins, 7 losses, and an earned run average (ERA) of 2.98 in his debut season, ranked first in the team for most wins and ERA, and also ranked second in the National League Rookie of the Year voting and seventh in the Cy Young Award voting.

His overall record in the Japanese professional baseball first team is 87 wins, 44 losses, 1 save, ERA 2.59, and 1,252 strikeouts. 스포츠토토
