Los Angeles Angels left-handed first baseman Jared Walsh (30) was selected as an All-Star for the first time in his debut in 2021. In his first full-time season as a starter, he batted 2.7 7 Lee (147 hits in 530 bats), 29 home runs, and 98 RBIs with an OPS of .850 in 144 games, leading the Angels’ batting line along with Shohei Ohtani and Mike Trout.
However,스포츠토토 last year, his batting average dropped to 201.5 Lee (91 hits in 423 at-bats), 15 homers, 44 RBIs, and an OPS of .642 in 118 games.
In the demonstration game, I wanted to revive with a batting average of 40% (14 hits in 35 at-bats), 2 homers, 6 RBIs, and an OPS of 1.198 in 14 games, but on March 28 (hereinafter Korean time) ahead of the season opening, I was on the injured list for headaches and insomnia, and have not yet returned. did not
However, on the 8th, he went to his home stadium, Angel Stadium, to practice hitting and prepare for his comeback. According to ‘The Athletic’ on the 8th, Walsh said, “To be honest, it was like hell. I didn’t know what was going on with my body. He didn’t understand why I couldn’t do the mundane things in the prime of my life and career. It was too worrisome for me,” he said, revealing his situation.
Walsh, who suffers from neurological problems, has been unable to sleep properly for the past year and has been experiencing tremors. His daily life was also difficult to the extent that his spatial perception fell and he hit a wall. He had this same symptom since last year, but he kept it as a secret to himself and had surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome at the end of August and was out of the season. Walsh also attributed thoracic outlet syndrome to neurological problems.
As the symptoms persist over time, Walsh can’t stand it any longer. It was around the time of the season opener, but he decided to leave the team for a while to receive treatment. His mother sought treatment at a neurology facility in Utah.
During baseball season, Walsh stayed in a hotel near the hospital and attended a hospital treatment program from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. There are still a few processes left, but as the condition improves a lot, it is getting closer to returning to actual combat.
Walsh, who has been fighting alone while hiding her illness, said, “It’s difficult, but I needed help to get my career and life back.” I don’t want to return without being fully healed. I will return with a new look,” he emphasized a healthy return.
The Angels are splitting the first base spot this season with Geo Acella and Jake Lam amid Walsh’s absence. Acella is recording a batting average of 3.4 (35 hits in 115 at-bats) in 31 games, but with one home run, 12 RBIs, and an OPS of .676, her long hitting power and productivity are disappointing. Ram is also sluggish with a batting average of 201.6 (11 hits in 51 at-bats), 2 home runs, 5 RBIs, and an OPS of .612 in 19 games. If Walsh comes back healthy, he could be a big help to the Angels’ lineup.
