“I came back when I really needed it” 40-year-old 115.4 billion ace, returning from injury, finally makes his Mets debut

New York Mets Justin Verlander (40) will finally make his first appearance after transferring. 

American media SNY said on the 2nd (hereafter Korean time), “It’s been about a month since Verlander and the Mets had hopes, but Verlander, who returned from an inflammation of the right major muscle, made his debut for the Mets against Detroit, his former team, where he spent the first 12 and a half years of his career. will pay,” he said. 

Verlander is a special ace who recorded 244 wins, 133 losses, and an average ERA of 3.24 in 482 major league games (3163 innings). He won the American League Cy Young award three times (2011, 2019, 2022) and succeeded in signing a two-year, $86 million (approximately 115.4 billion won) contract with the Mets last winter despite his age. 

But Verlander has never been on a major league mound in a Mets uniform. He was placed on the 15-day disabled list after suffering an injury before the start of the season. Fortunately, Verlander, who avoided major injuries, went to the rehabilitation mound in the minor league Double A and finished the final check by making a good pitch with 2 hits, 1 walk, 6 strikeouts, and no runs in 4⅔ innings. 

SNY said, “While Verlander was out, the Mets got Max Scherzer suspended for 10 games and Carlos Carrasco and Jose Quintana removed from the lineup. David Peterson had a sluggish performance and went down to the minor leagues, and Verlander came back when the Mets really needed it.” 메이저사이트

Verlander is scheduled to make his first appearance against Detroit on the 5th following Scherzer, who will appear on the 4th. Coincidentally, Detroit is Verlander’s home team, where he played for 13 seasons before being traded to Houston in 2017 from his big league debut in 2005. Verlander went 183-114 with a 3.49 ERA in 380 games (2511 innings) with Detroit and won the American League Cy Young Award in 2011. 

Meanwhile, Scherzer, who was ejected while recording 3 innings, 1 hit, 2 walks, 3 strikeouts and no runs due to failing to pass the foreign substance test against the Dodgers on the 20th, is also returning after being suspended for 10 games. If Scherzer and Verlander’s one-two punches work properly, it will be a great boost to the Mets (16-13, 3rd in the National League East Division), which are performing less than expected at the beginning of the season. /fpdlsl72556@osen.co.kr
