Alcantara left for the U.S to have a checkup with his doctor

A checkup at a hospital in Korea revealed no major abnormalities. Nevertheless, the athlete is still in pain and is worried about his physical condition. His rehabilitation is slow. He wants to listen to and follow the opinions of his doctor in the United States. It reminds us of Plutko, the LG Twins’ foreign pitcher last year.

Alcantara, a foreign pitcher for the Doosan Bears, left for the United States on the morning of the 3rd. He left for the U.S. to have a checkup with his doctor.

Before the game against LG at Jamsil Stadium on Wednesday, Doosan’s PR team announced, “Alcantara left for the United States this morning. He will go to the U.S. to have a checkup with his doctor. He is expected to return home on the 8th or 9th of this month.”

Alcantara complained of elbow pain after throwing seven scoreless innings against Kiwoom on April 21. He was placed on the disabled list and rehabilitated, and recently underwent medical examinations at three hospitals in Korea, 토토사이트 where he was diagnosed with a right elbow sprain. A Doosan official said, “The results of the checkup showed no major abnormalities. However, the player continues to feel uneasy and wants to see his doctor in person for a checkup,” said a Doosan official.

Alcantara recently practiced catching and other rehabilitation exercises and complained of micro-pain.

He did not fully trust the results of the medical examination at the Korean hospital and asked the club to go to his doctor in the United States for a final checkup.

The distance between the player and the club has grown. Manager Lee Seung-yeop said of Alcantara on the first day, “I played catch, but I can’t say anything more. I’m not in a very good mood.” He also said, ”No one knows when Alcantara will come back. We have to wait and see, and if it’s longer, we’ll have to do something else. We have to wait and see, and hopefully Alcantara will come back.”

Three days before the game, Lee said, “Foreign players play an important role, so we’ll have to go and get the results of the examination and then decide. It hurts, but what can you do?” he said.

Alcantara went 20-2 with Doosan in 2020 before leaving the following year to sign a two-year contract with the Hanshin Tigers of Nippon Professional Baseball. He returned to Doosan last year and went 13-9 with a 2.67 ERA in 31 games. This year, he re-signed for a total of $1.5 million, and went 1-1 with a 2.30 ERA in five starts (31⅓ innings) before getting injured.

Alcantara’s situation is similar to Plutko’s last year.

Plutko was dominant in the first half of last year, going 11-1 with a 2.21 ERA in 17 games. However, he was sidelined in the second half of the year after contracting COVID-19, and was sidelined in late August with a left pelvic bone contusion. He was expected to miss four to five weeks of rehab. But the rehabilitation schedule kept getting longer.

During the rehabilitation process, Flutko and his training partner had conflicting opinions. Plutko couldn’t keep up with the training program. Despite the fact that the medical tests showed no major abnormalities, the athlete felt that he wasn”t fully recovered and was passive in the rehabilitation process.

There were conflicting opinions from Plutko’s personal doctor in the U.S., Korean medical staff, and LG Training over the results of the medical tests (MRI, etc.). Plutko slowed down his rehabilitation according to his doctor’s opinion. 파워볼사이트 “It’s up to him (Plutko’s return schedule). He will have to make his own decision,” Yoon said. It was similar to Lee’s current situation.

In the end, Plutko didn’t return until the end of the regular season. When he couldn’t pitch in practice, Yoon decided to leave him out of the Korean Series roster, and he left for the United States after the regular season and before the Korean Series. It wasn’t a smooth farewell.
