The Tampa Bay Rays, which set a tie record with 14 consecutive wins from the opening, lost the ace of pitching in an instant and were put in the worst situation.

- Shane Mcclanahan will undergo an elbow ligament joint surgery (Tommy John surgery) on the 22nd (Korean time).

As a result, Mcclanahan will not be able to play the rest of the season. Also, the 2024 season is also very likely to be missed. The recovery period for Tommy John surgery is up to 18 months.
In addition, Tampa Bay will not be able to sign Wonder Franco , who signed a whopping 11-year, $182 million contract shortly after the 2021 season.

Franco was recently reported to have been involved in a minor-related crime. He was placed on a limited list, and his return schedule is unknown. At worst he could be like Trevor Bauer.

In other words, Tampa Bay was quickly deprived of the ace of the mound and the batters at the same time. That's the worst news for Tampa Bay, which is vying for the top spot on Earth.

Tampa Bay remains in second place in the American League East with a season record of 72 wins and 49 losses and a 0.595 win rate until the 15th. The win over the No. 1 Baltimore Orioles is three games.

Tampa Bay got off to a good start with 14 consecutive wins, but its performance began to drop in the middle of the season, and this time, both pitching aces were hit by bad news.

As a result, Tampa Bay's future, which was considered to have gone beyond winning the Earth title to the World Series, has become very dark.
