Louis Robert Jr. (26, Chicago White Sox)’s first All-Star Game since his debut became a nightmare.
The White Sox club reported on the 12th 메이저사이트 주소 (Korea Standard Time), saying, “Robert Jr. felt pain in his right calf in the first round of the home run derby the previous day (11th).”
Robert Jr. had an MRI scan in Seattle, where the All-Star Game was held. As an additional precaution, Robert Jr. did not participate in the All-Star Game main game. He is scheduled to undergo another examination before the opening game of the second half of the season against the Atlanta Braves on the 15th.
Robert Jr. played as the starting center fielder for the White Sox this season and recorded 26 home runs, ranking second in American League home runs after Shohei Ohtani (LA Angels, 32 home runs). Based on these performances, he was named on the All-Star Game roster for the first time in his career at the recommendation of the secretariat in his fourth year since his debut.
Robert Jr., who participated in the home run derby as the first seed, advanced to the second round by beating Adley Rutchman (Baltimore Orioles) 28-27 in the first round. However, he was eliminated in the second round after losing 22-35 to Randy Arozarena (Tampa Bay Rays), probably due to the effect of feeling calf pain in the first round.
