“It was a very different story for Ryu Hyun-jin.”

‘Korean Monster’ Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto Blue Jays) finally returned to the mound. Ryu Hyun-jin took the mound as a starting pitcher in a minor league rookie league match against the FCL Tigers (under the Detroit Tigers) held at the Bobby Matic Complex in Dunedin, Florida on the 5th (Korean time).

The results were superb. He blocked 4 hits and 1 run while striking out 5 in 3 innings. In particular, the samurai ball was impressive.

The redemption was about 140 km. On this day, Canadian media ‘TSN’ Scott Mitchell said, “Ryu Hyun-jin’s first rehabilitation appearance went well. He looked very good and his velocity was said to have been maintained in the range of 87 to 88 miles (140 to 142 km).”

Another Canadian media, ‘Toronto Sun,’ also compared Ryu Hyun-jin to Alec Manoa, who was sluggish in the rookie league, while reporting the news of his rehabilitation. The ‘Toronto Sun’ mentioned Ryu Hyun-jin’s good fight, saying, “The rookie league debut was not so good for Manoa, but it was a very different story for a colleague recovering from Tommy John surgery.”안전놀이터

Manoa, who was sluggish this year with 1 win, 7 losses and an ERA of 6.36, went down to the minor leagues to adjust his pitching, and started against the FCL Yankees (under the New York Yankees) in the rookie league on the 28th of last month, but showed shocking sluggishness with 10 hits and 11 runs in 2⅔ innings. .

On the other hand, Ryu Hyun-jin was different. “Veteran Ryu Hyun-jin allowed only 1 run without a walk while striking out 5 in 3 innings in his first real game since June of last year,” said the’Toronto Sun’, saying, “The fact that he passed his first appearance without injury is Toronto in 2020-2021. Veteran Ryu Hyun-jin, who was the starter for the opening game, will be a strong step in the right direction.”

In addition, it was predicted that Ryu Hyun-jin would return to the major leagues at the end of this month. “If Ryu Hyun-jin continues on his current path, there remains a possibility of returning to the big leagues at the end of July, and it will be a great boost to Toronto’s weak pitching depth,” is the prediction of the ‘Toronto Sun’.
