The exact details of what was off in his physical are unknown, but it isn't uncommon for young Japanese pitchers to have more wear and tear on their arms due to pitching more compared to US starters. This was said to also have impacted how much he got in his contract ($75 million). With all that being said, the Mets are confident that he will be healthy and ready to roll for the start of the 2023 season, but this will certainly be a situation worth monitoring throughout Spring Training.
