Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto), who is undergoing rehabilitation after undergoing elbow ligament surgery (Tommy John surgery) last year, will begin live pitching starting next month. So far, the rehabilitation process has been smooth, and Ryu Hyun-jin is expected to return to the big league mound in mid-July, as he had hoped.
Toronto general manager Ross Atkins said in an interview with Canadian media such as Sportsnet on the 16th, “Ryu Hyun-jin and (bullpen pitcher) Chad Green will throw the ball against batters in real life in June.” Hyunjin Ryu and Green, who underwent elbow surgery side by side, are currently undergoing rehabilitation training in Dunedin, Florida, where Toronto’s spring camp facility is located.
Ryu Hyun-jin, who was on the operating table in June of last year, came to the bullpen pitching stage through catch ball. Afterwards, he is expected to find a sense of actual fighting through live pitching and minor league appearances, and return to the big leagues in mid-July, right after the major league All-Star break. MLB.com, the homepage of the Major League Baseball, predicted, “After Ryu Hyun-jin and Green complete their first actual appearance, we will be able to more clearly estimate the return time.”
Toronto’s starting lineup this year without Ryu Hyun-jin is relatively solid. Kevin Gaussman, Alec Manoa, Jose Berrios, Chris Bassett, and Yusei Kikuchi were organized in a five-start system, and recorded 20 quality starts (three earned runs or less in six or more innings). This is the second most after Minnesota (21 times) in the American League.체스카지노
Kikuchi and Bassett both won 5 wins each, the most on the team. Through free agent (FA) contracts, Berrios and Gaussman, who wore Toronto uniforms, earned 3 wins and 2 wins, respectively. However, Manoa is the most sluggish with an average ERA of 5.40 with 1 win and 4 losses.
If Ryu Hyun-jin returns healthy, the Toronto starting lineup can add weight. Prior to the 2020 season, Ryu Hyun-jin, who signed a free agent contract with Toronto for a total of 80 million dollars over 4 years, is the last year of his contract. During the three seasons he played in Toronto, his record was 21-12 with an ERA of 4.07. Compared to the previous 6 years of playing for the Los Angeles Dodgers (54-33, 2.98 earned run average), he is poor.
Toronto lost 4-7 to the New York Yankees on the 16th, and is in third place in the Eastern Division of the American League with 24 wins and 17 losses.
