American Yahoo Sports reported on the 13th (Korean time) that ‘Mcclanahan, an all-star in Tampa Bay, will end the season due to a left arm injury’. Mcclanahan was placed on the 15-day disabled list (IL) with a left forearm problem on the 4th. Attention was focused on the timing of his return, but the hiatus was prolonged by moving to the 13th and 60th IL.
According to local media, Mcclanahan is even discussing the possibility of Tommy John surgery (elbow ligament joint surgery). He already had a history of Tommy John surgery while attending the University of South Florida, so it is difficult to see this injury easily.
“It’s heartbreaking. Losing one of the best pitchers in the world isn’t easy,” said Tampa Bay teammate Zack Eflin. “But we have to move on.” Mcclanahan started 21 games before the injury and went 11-2 with a 3.29 ERA. Along with Eflin (12-6, 3.34 ERA), he was the twin that led the Tampa Bay starting lineup, but as he broke away from the front line, the rotation’s weight fell.
Tampa Bay recorded 71 wins and 48 losses, chasing the American League (AL) Eastern Division 1st place Baltimore Orioles (71 wins and 45 losses) by 1.5 games. The possibility of advancing to fall baseball is growing, but Mcclanahan’s vacancy is expected to act as a significant variable. Tampa Bay is already experiencing difficulties in operating the mound as Jeffrey Springs (Tommy John Surgery), Drew Rasmussen (elbow), and Shane Bas (Tommy John Surgery) are out for the season.
