Los Angeles Angels shortstop Anthony Rendn will miss the rest of the 2022 MLB season, as he will have to undergo surgery on his right wrist.
The injury will prevent him from playing
The Los Angeles Angels announced Friday that Rendn’s injury will prevent him from continuing to play for the remainder of the season.
“A difficult streak for the Angels became even more difficult on Friday, as the club announced that leadoff man Anthony Rendon will undergo surgery early next week to repair his right wrist,” the team said.
He also had hip surgery in 2021
It’s the second time that the outfielder will miss the final part of the season with an injury, after he underwent hip surgery in August 2021.
He had serious inflammation
He had been dealing with the wrist injury for the past month and was on the injured list from May 17 to June 10 due to right wrist inflammation. He played Tuesday, but in the fifth inning, he left the game with discomfort.
They tried to avoid surgery
“We knew (surgery) was always an option. We were trying to figure out how to get through each day, but it got to a point where it didn’t get better. Yesterday was the last straw. I tried to go through a new routine to see if I could play, and we tried to do some things during the game, but it just didn’t happen,” the player said.
He played a total of 155 games in three years
He finished the season with five home runs and 24 RBIs in 45 games. He has played in 155 games with the Angelinos over the past three years, with 20 home runs, 34 doubles, and 89 RBIs. He signed a seven-year contract worth $245 million before the start of the 2020 season but has not been able to produce as expected.
