Starling Marte injured his finger-groin last year → This time, he said, “There is no problem with the detailed examination, but…”
Starling Marte (New York Mets), who suffered finger and groin injuries last year, was hit by a ball in the head in an exhibition game.
Starling Marte started as the second right fielder in an exhibition game against the Tampa Bay Rays in the 2023 Major League Baseball at Clover Park in Florida on the 12th.
He went into the attack in the bottom of the fifth inning with a double play in the first inning and a strikeout in the third inning. Marte took on Irvin Rodriguez. At this time, Rodriguez’s four-ball 93-mile fastball flew to his head and hit Marte on the head. Fortunately, it hit the helmet, but the shock was huge.
Starling Marte did not fall, but walked off the ground. Rodriguez, who threw a slip of the ball, looked up at the sky in sorry and held his head. 안전공원
He immediately underwent a thorough examination at the hospital and was tested negative for concussion. There was no problem at all, but Marte is known to be cautious because he is a player with many injuries.
“Marte was lucky,” Showalter manager Mets Buck said in a post-match interview. I’m glad it wasn’t a major injury. Let’s keep an eye on the situation,” he said.
Starling Marte was initially expected to start the opening game without difficulty. However, the plan may go awry due to the injury. If he doesn’t join, Tommy Pam, Abraham Almonte and others could fill in for a while.
