Los Angeles Angels third baseman Anthony Rendon volunteered to be replaced due to injury. It is fortunate that the action was taken before it led to more serious injuries, but it is also true that there are concerns about the past.
On the 14th (Korean time), Rendon started as a 4th hitter and 3rd baseman in the 2023 Major League Baseball game against the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio, USA, and was replaced by Luis Lenhipo at the end of the 6th inning. During the pitcher change from Reed Detmers to Chris Devenski, the bench asked for a replacement.
The reason I requested a replacement was because of pain in my left leg. He told manager Phil Nevin himself of his condition and walked off the field, saying he was “not fit to play”.안전놀이터
He recorded an OPS of 1.041 with a batting average of 0.400 in the last 6 games until the 13th, a batting average of 0.412 in 10 games in May, and it was a more fatal power leak when the sense of hitting reached its peak. Rendon went 2-for-3 in his first two at-bats, going 0-for-3 with one RBI on a sacrifice fly.
He was playing ‘ransom’ for the first time since joining the Angels in 2020. Rendon signed a seven-year, $245 million deal with the Angels ahead of the 2020 season. However, his first three years had a batting average of 0.252 with 20 home runs and 89 RBI. Due to his frequent injuries, he didn’t even play a lot.
This year, he was suspended for arguing with an Oakland home fan right after the opening game. In April, with a batting average of 0.246 and an OPS of 0.658 in 20 games, he still fell short of expectations, and began to revive in May, but the evil spirit of injury came again.
Meanwhile, the Angels lost 6-8 to Cleveland in the game on the 14th. In the 7th and 8th innings, he was leading 6-2 with consecutive runs, but in the 8th defense, he allowed 6 hits and 6 runs, including two homers. Shohei Ohtani had one hit and one RBI. The self-congratulatory show of 3 hits, 1 home run and 2 stolen bases by promising star Mickey Moniak, who played in the major league game for the first time this year on his birthday, also faded.
