Injury fears are rising for the LA Dodgers, who are just around the corner of the Seoul Series.

Pitcher Emmett Sheehan was placed on the injured list and Blake Treynan left the ground after being hit hard.

In addition, ‘Bazooka’ pitcher Bruce Graterol failed to play in the Seoul Series due to injury.

U.S. media, including MLB.COM, reported on the 11th (Korea time) that Graterol could not go to Seoul due to hip pressure and shoulder pain.

Graterol has been a Dodgers bullpen for the past few years, pitching consistently in mid-to-late games. He appeared in 68 games last year with a 1.20 ERA and a 0.97 WHIP.

Graterol, who signed with the Minnesota Twins as an international free agent in 2014, made his big league debut in September 2019 and was traded to the Dodgers the following year in 2020.

Graterol, who had a 3.09 ERA in 23 games that year, has been somewhat sluggish in 2021 with a four-point ERA in 34 games. However, he managed to rebound with a 3.26 ERA in 2022.

According to the scouting report, Graterol is a fastball pitcher with a strength in inducing ground balls, putting up a high-speed sinker with an average speed of 161km and a maximum speed of 165km as his main weapon, and also has an outstanding cutter slider with an average speed of 145km and a maximum speed of 151km.

Meanwhile, Miguel Rojas was excluded from the Dodgers’ lineup after complaining of leg pain ahead of the exhibition game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. 안전놀이터

As the number of injured players continues to increase, manager Dave Roberts is in trouble. In particular, he is paying attention to Shohei Ohtani and Yoshinobu Yamamoto.
