Jordan Muir signed with the Mie Three Arrows (Shikoku Island League plus) this year with the hopes of making his way to the NPB. He unfortunately hit a road bump and sent me this update about 10 days ago (I was trying to post this early but I have so much on my plate right now that I kept forgetting. Sorry Jordan!):
So I started on Saturday and only made it through 6 batters then came out of the game. I felt a pop in my elbow during a pitch and knew something was wrong. Turns out I fractured my elbow and will now be out 3 months. Just a minor set back but I will come back stronger after rehab for the 2nd half of our season. I will be staying in Japan for the whole time.
I've never seen Jordan pitch but I have heard a lot about his work ethic from his father and based on that, I'm sure he'll manage to make it back just fine.
Good luck on your rehab Jordan!
