Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto Blue Jays) is now in the senior class. He returned after a year of elbow surgery and was hit again in the middle of a game.
The Canadian press ‘Toronto Star’ said on the 14th (Korean time), ‘It’s very surprising. Ryu Hyun-jin perfectly provided Toronto with a very crafty pitch,’ it reported.
Ryu Hyun-jin started the 2023 Major League Baseball game against the Chicago Cubs at the Rogers Center in Toronto, Canada. Ryu Hyun-jin made a good pitching with 5 innings and 2 runs (visa). Toronto won 11-4, and Ryu Hyun-jin reported his first win of the season (1 win, 1 loss).
The Toronto Star said, ‘Pitchers who have undergone Tommy John surgery usually return to the mound after 12 months, but it takes 18 months to reach 100%. This is not good news for Ryu Hyun-jin. Ryu Hyun-jin’s number one goal was to get back in the rotation and prove that he is still a player who can contribute to the team,’ he explained.
Ryu Hyun-jin went on the operating table in June of last year. Despite his less-than-perfect physique, he had to show the world his worth. At the end of this season, his contract with Toronto also ends. He has to win a new contract.안전놀이터
The Toronto Star said, ‘There was a scenario where Ryu Hyun-jin’s return could be a bit messy, but so far it’s perfect. Ryu Hyun-jin showed pitching that exceeded expectations. The redemption is still slow, but it is in a pretty good shape,” he said positively.
Toronto coach John Schneider said, “It’s really amazing. Ryu Hyun-jin didn’t have a single mistake. It’s really amazing for a player his age. It’s never easy to be able to do that.”
Ryu Hyun-jin also did not hide his satisfaction.
Ryu Hyun-jin said, “Honestly, I’m very happy. This is the result I’ve been hoping for ever since the surgery. I’m happy with that alone if I can secure a foothold for the team to win along with personal victory.”
Rather, it is more positive in that there is a high possibility that it will get better in the future.
Schneider said, “Ryu Hyun-jin recorded the highest 91 mph. He knows where his ball is going. Ryu Hyun-jin has ball mixing know-how. Here, if he returns to the speed, it is even better.”
