Seattle Mariners left-hander Robbie Ray decided to undergo surgery and ended the season.
Seattle coach Scott Service announced the news of Ray’s surgery in an interview with local media outlets such as ESPN ahead of an away game against the Philadelphia Phillies on the 27th (Korean time).

The operation will be moved to Arlington, Texas, where Dr. Keith Meister, chief doctor of the Rangers club and Texas Metroplex, will conduct the operation, but the date for the operation has not been set. It is predicted that he will have to rehabilitate not only this season but also next year’s spring training.

After giving up 4 hits and 5 runs in 3⅓ innings against the Cleveland Indians on the 1st of last month, he was put on the injured list the next day due to an elbow injury.

After winning the American League Cy Young Award during his time with the Toronto Blue Jays in 2021, Ray obtained FA status and signed a five-year, $115 million (approximately 154 billion won) contract with Seattle.
Last season, he threw 189 innings in 32 games, posting a 12-12 record, a 3.71 ERA, and 212 strikeouts, playing a significant role. However, his upward career was put on hold after two years of his all-season deal.
In an interview with the local media last week, Ray said about the injury situation, “I felt stiff during the second pitch. It was different from usual and I didn’t feel good. It has been said
