After 643 billion won multi-year contract, knee, then Tommy John…COL wants to cry

The Colorado Rockies’ big investment is at risk of ending in ‘failure’.

Right-handed pitcher Antonio Senzatela (28) is scheduled to undergo Tommy John surgery, ESPN reported on May 16 (Korea time), citing Colorado manager Bud Black. Senzatela was placed on the 15-day disabled list (IL) on May 13 with right elbow soreness and moved to the 60-day DL on June 12. He suffered a dislocation two games into the season and will be out for at least a year if he undergoes surgery.메이저놀이터

A native of Venezuela, Senzatela is a “one-club man” who has been with Colorado since his big league debut in 2017. He distinguished himself with double-digit wins (10) in his rookie season and a career-high 11 wins in 2019. Colorado signed Senzatela to a five-year, $50.5 million deal after the 2021 season, and while some felt it was a waste of money after he went 4-10 with a 4.42 ERA that year, the Rockies disagreed. Since signing him, Senzatela has been plagued by injuries and has been underperforming.

Senzatela was limited to 19 starts last year due to a sprained left knee. His record wasn’t great, going 3-7 with a 5.07 ERA. The second season of his high-profile, long-term contract was cut short after just two games. Senzatela’s career big league record (seven years) is 39-43 with a 4.87 ERA. After signing a long-term deal, he won just four games (eight losses) in 21 starts.
