๐Ÿ’‰๐Ÿงข “A Curveball for Jacob deGrom: Tommy John Surgery Strikes Again, Putting a Speed Bump on His Texas Rangers Journey” โšพ๐Ÿ’”

TL;DR; ๐Ÿ’ฌ
Pitching powerhouse Jacob deGrom hits a snag in his debut season with the Texas Rangers, thanks to an unwelcome guest: Tommy John surgery. The Rangers’ ace’s promising run is cut short due to a tear in his right ulnar collateral ligament. The baseball star’s golden arm, worth $185 million over five years, made six dazzling starts before this curveball. His last dance with the Yankees left him on the injured list, putting the Rangers’ triumphant run on thin ice. Will this disrupt the team’s winning streak? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ’ญ

In the world of Major League Baseball, stars rise and fall faster than a fastball, and sadly, one such star is Texas Ranger’s newcomer Jacob deGrom. With a right-hand swing as reliable as a Swiss watch, deGrom’s five-year, $185 million dollar deal with the Rangers seemed like a safe bet. But is it truly, given the sudden roadblock? ๐Ÿง๐ŸŽฒ

Just six starts into his blazing 2023 season, our man Jacob found himself pulling out of the game against the New York Yankees with a tightening forearm. His dynamite arm was swiftly put on the injured list the following day. A promising start indeed turned a bit gloomy. But hey, could this be a blessing in disguise for the Rangers, or an unlucky break? ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ’”

Now, you may ask, “What’s this Tommy John surgery thing?” It’s a procedure to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament, a key player in our throwing game. This isn’t deGrom’s first rodeo with Tommy John – they had their first meeting back in 2010, just after the Mets drafted him. Should we question if he’s simply pushing himself too hard, too fast? Is this an issue with training or just bad luck? ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿ”„

Let’s not forget that our hero hasn’t exactly had a smooth ride, even before this season. Elbow inflammation in 2021 and a scapula injury in 2022 delayed his games. But each time, like a phoenix, deGrom rose from the ashes, returning to the game stronger and faster. So, how will this surgery impact his comeback game? ๐ŸŒ…๐Ÿ‹๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Despite this blow, the Rangers have been hot on their trail, leading the AL West with a whopping 39-20 record. They are the baseball equivalent of a rocket on a launch pad, taking the first half of the season by storm. So, can they continue their meteoric rise without their ace up their sleeve? Or is this the twist that cools their jets? ๐Ÿš€โ„๏ธ
