This is a high praise, amazing praise for RYU, “Strong pitch, perfect for Toronto”
Ryu Hyun-jin (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.
스포츠토토 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 her not-so-perfect body, she had to show the world her worth. At the end of this season, his contract with Toronto also ends. He has to win a new contract.
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. He evaluated it positively, saying, “The redemption is still slow, but it’s in pretty good shape.”
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 expected, “Ryu Hyun-jin recorded a maximum of 91 mph. He knows where his ball is going. Ryu Hyun-jin has ball mixing know-how. It is even better if he returns to the ball here.”
