‘1.030 slugging percentage 1st place’ Duvall eventually left due to a wrist fracture

Adam Duvall (35, Boston Red Sox), who showed a good sense of hitting at the beginning of the season, eventually leaves for a long term.

The Boston team announced on the 11th (Korean time) that Duvall’s left wrist was fractured and placed on the injured list. Duval injured his wrist while attempting a diving catch in center field against the Detroit Tigers the previous day. He complained of extreme pain and was immediately replaced, but as a result of the examination, a fracture was not avoided.메이저놀이터

According to local media, he is not in a situation where he needs surgery, but he is expected to be out for about 6 to 8 weeks. “I’m glad it’s not the worst news,” Boston coach Alex Cora said. “We have to be patient and wait for him to come back when he’s ready.”

Duval signed a one-year, $7 million (9.2 billion won) short-term contract with Boston in January. It was a recruitment that did not receive much attention at the time, but after the start of the regular season, the gaze changed. Duval had a batting average of 0.455 (15 hits in 33 at-bats), 4 homers and 14 RBIs in 8 games before the injury. He has an OPS of 1.544 combined with on-base percentage (0.514) and slugging percentage (1.030). 1st in slugging percentage and OPS overall in the Major League Baseball (MLB). However, he was unable to avoid a hiatus due to a sudden fracture injury. Boston plans to appoint Kike Hernandez in the center fielder position without Duval.  

After making his big league debut in 2014, Duval went through the San Francisco Giants, Cincinnati Reds, Atlanta Braves and Miami Marlins. His career (10 years) record is a batting average of 0.233, 167 home runs and 492 RBIs. In 2016, he was an All-Star, and in 2021 he also won the Gold Glove for National League outfielders.
