Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto Blue Jays) has pitched more than five innings and less than three earned runs in six consecutive games, continuing his stability. Each appearance is praised by the local media for its unique “art pitching.”

He scored a quality start (three runs in six innings) in 480 days against the Texas Rangers at home (Toronto Rogers Center, Ontario, Canada) on the 13th (Korea Standard Time). He became a losing pitcher in two consecutive games following the Oakland Athletics match on the 8th, when he scored two runs in five innings, but the pitching was good. It is also encouraging that he played six innings even when the number of pitches is being managed around 80 pitches in terms of injury management.

The only regret is that the rate of home runs is high. In the game against Texas on the 13th, he allowed a two-run home run over Robbie Grossman after hitting by leadoff hitter Corey Seager in the top of the fourth inning. Without this loss, he could not have been pushed back in the “starting showdown” with three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer (Texas).

Ryu Hyun-jin also became a losing pitcher due to his home run against Oakland on the 8th. In the bottom of the fourth inning, when Toronto was leading 1-0, Carlos Perez, who faced one runner, hit a left-handed home run. His only run was recorded by this home run.

In the match against the Colorado Rockies on the 2nd, he also struggled at Coors Field, the “tomb of pitchers” by allowing two runs in five innings, but left behind a two-run home run by Elephuris Montero in the bottom of the fourth inning. In the match against the Cleveland Guardians on the 27th of last month, Jose Ramirez, the opponent’s leading hitter in the first inning, and Tyler Freeman, the “CNU” in the fifth inning, allowed two solo shots. The only loss against Cleveland was a home run.

There were few mistakes. The cut fastball (cutter) went well into Grossman’s two-run home run against Texas on the 13th. In the game against Oakland on the 8th, Perez hit a four-seam fastball slightly over the batter’s body (based on right-handed batters).

In the game against Colorado on the 2nd, Montero’s home run was somewhat centered on the change-up. The ball was a slip. The change-up is the same with Gunner Henderson in the sixth inning of the Baltimore Orioles game on August 2, when he returned.스포츠토토

However, it is right to say that the opposing batter responded well to the low curve thrown when Freeman allowed a home run in the fifth inning against Cleveland on the 27th of last month and the high course fastball thrown to Ramirez in the second inning. Of the six home runs this season, only two have made mistakes.

Even after a 13-month rehabilitation hiatus, Ryu Hyun-jin has erased concerns about poor sense of practice and is showing great pitching every day. In the match against Cleveland on the 8th of last month, he only filled four innings due to an unexpected variable that hit his knee, but blocked all seven other games more than five innings. Except for his return game (against the Orioles on August 2), he gave up more than three points.

Ryu Hyun-jin is recording 75.8 pitches per game (606 pitches in total). Of the six home runs, only two missed pitches. The quality of the other 599 pitches is too high to pinch the pitching contents. The reason for the recent two consecutive losses is the silence of the batters’ scoring. Ryu Hyun-jin is in good shape.
