Walker Buehler (27, LA Dodgers), who is striving for rehabilitation after undergoing major surgery for an elbow injury, mentioned a specific return date. it’s coming september
On the 17th안전놀이터 (hereafter referred to as Korean time), the LA Times, a media outlet in the Los Angeles area of the United States, reported that Buehler is undergoing rehabilitation with the goal of returning on September 1st. The target date for the return, September 1, was directly mentioned by Buehler.
Previously, Buehler left with a sprained elbow ligament in June of last year, and was on the operating table at the end of August. At the time, it seemed that Buehler would return after surgery to remove bone fragments in his elbow in July.
But it wasn’t until late August that Buehler underwent elbow ligament splicing (Tommy John surgery). As a result, he wasted more than two months.
At the time of his surgery, a return to the 2024 season was expected. But Buehler is trying to come back after a 12-month recovery period. Twelve months is the minimal recovery period from Tommy John surgery.
If all goes well, Buehler could be back on the postseason mound in September.
Buehler, in his 6th year in the majors, is a right-handed starting pitcher who throws a strong ball. In the 2021 season, he threw 207 2/3 innings in 33 games, going 16-4 with an ERA of 2.47.
